I was wrong on that. Last ten we’re 1-9, they are 3-6. 

Det 37-83

Bal 39-84  1.5GB

.317 Winning %. On pace for 53-111

If we could win 53 games AND get the first pick, I’d consider that ideal. 

I think you mean 53-109 though.

ONE DAY LATER )))))) (vs. RED SOX, 8/18)

 

The Orioles scored 6 runs in the first 3 innings, chasing Red Sox starter Nathan Eovaldi in the process.

They were outscored 13-1 the rest of the way, en route to a 13-7 loss ...... extremely disheartening for many of us Oriole fans.

In the midst of their Death March, the Orioles took 2 out of 3 games from the Royals.

The Orioles followed that up by splitting a 4-game series with the playoff-hungry Rays.

They are 4-2 over their last 6 games.

And 5-15 for the subject games, with 2 to go.

 

 

That beats 3-17 with 2 games to go.

 Detroit's lead for 1-1 is 2.5G.

Good for them.

I'm not particularly concerned about getting the #2 pick instead of the #1 pick.

Way I see it, we’ll be getting a very good to outstanding prospect anywhere between 1 and 4, and I’m content with that. Frankly, I’d just as soon avoid the stigma of having 1:1 in consecutive years. Losing to that degree is something that can fester within, and indeed infest, an organization; I don’t want these young, impressionable players we have coming through the pipeline to potentially settle into that mentality. 

Anyway, more on topic: this has been quite a rough stretch, and I readily admit I was wrong; I was among those who voted we’d break even or better. But this was a nice, overall well-played series vs. a team that’s still harboring postseason hopes, so I’ll continue to hope we can spoil as much as we can over this final month and change.

Tell that to the Astros that got three straight 1:1.

They went 1 for 3 with those picks.
