The Orioles have gone 21-22 since starting the year 7-0. 43 games of sub .500 vs 7 games of perfection. That's a lot of mediocre baseball from a mediocre team. It's time to call this team what it is, and that's a mediocre .500 team. We have one legitimate starter in Tillman, a decent but inconsistent starter in Gausman, two five inning or two time through an order starters in Wilson and Wright, and guys like Jimenez and Gallardo who wouldn't even be pitching in the majors if not for their contracts. We have one of the worse systems in baseball, and DD has given up his 1st round pick again for a pitcher who throws 87 MPH. I know I sound like Debbie Downer here, but watching the Red Sox just manhandle this team just highlighted how much better they are as a team. The Orioles will still win their share and the team isn't as bad as they are when they are in these home runs slumps, but this is why you need to get some OBP batters. OBP guys tend to limit their slumps while low OBP, high homer guys tend to be streaky. Watching Red Sox fans take over the yard again is pretty disappointing, but it's hard to blame fans for staying away when the prices went up, but yet they are forced to watch the Ubaldo's and Gallardo's of the world get big contracts while the Arrieta's, Hader's and Rodriguez's are traded away.
I want to get the taste of last night's meltdown out of my mouth as soon as possible. I'll start here. 7:05 PM seems like such a long way away.
