The Orioles got swept by the D.C. team in a three-game set at HOME, and scored just two runs in the entire 27 innings of the series. You keep thinking they’ve hit rock bottom, and they keep plummeting through the floor.
The O’s set a franchise record for starting-pitching futility in 2017. They got rid of Ubaldo, and Miley, and cut the Chris Tillman experiment short. They added actual decent MLB starting pitchers…and they’re still horrible. Yet, somehow, through ALL OF THIS, Roger McDowell keeps his job. Flabbergasting.
Have you guys checked out The Warehouse Pod yet? Tyler, Jesse, and Marcus (Eli, this week) are Birds fans who just started up this show (this is episode 10), and so far I’m a fan. I’m always looking for more Birdland podcasts, though these days it’s just because misery loves company. Anywho, give them a listen.
Dan Connolly has taken the kid gloves off when it comes to detailing just how flawed and awful this team is.
20 years ago, the Orioles saw something in a high school lefty, picking him in the 20th round. He didn’t sign, and went on to have an amazing career elsewhere. It was actually he second time getting drafted and eschewing the big league squad, so whatever. The O’s would have ruined him anyway.
What the hell is this Mike Trout link doing here? I dunno man, I’m sick of depressing stuff. Let’s read about the best player of our generation, who could actually be the best player in history. His commitment to getting better – when he was already damn incredible – is something I sure wish some Orioles shared. But again, this isn’t to bash the Birds. I just want to read about good baseball, and good baseball players. If you agree, check out this article.
Four against the Yankees on deck. Yippee.
