I haven't been updating on line because it's depressing, but the team has lost 13 straight games. 

Well, this will help prepare us mentally for if/when we play this summer ....

I did release Chris Davis though after Memorial Day.

What is the teams overall record.  I will note that you traded Givens and Alberto.  But besides that this should be expected and is the reason I don’t care whether there is a baseball season or not.

After tonight's 14th straight loss, a 7-6 extra inning affair where the bullpen blew two separate leads, the team sits at an amazingly pitiful 15-42. I want to fire myself so I don't have to play this any more at this point. Not sure I've ever simmed a 14-game losing streak or a team to this kind of record. Truly amazing how everything backfires during games. 

The pitching has been beyond awful with a team 5.62 ERA and has allowed 118 home runs in 56 games. Yes, more than two a game. the next closest team is Detroit who has given up 88.

Only Seattle's team .690 OPS is worse than the Orioles .697 in the AL.

It's just a sad, sad team. In the minors, of the top prospects , only Adley Rutschman has done well. i just promoted him to AA Bowie where he joins the ultra disappointing DL Hall. 

Honestly this sim is the absolute worse case scenario for how the season would have gone. It's not fun to sim or to discuss so I just stopped, plus, no one really cares. haha

That's much better than if it was the actual season.

The simulation program may not have enough dumb luck coded into it. This is an underapprciated part of the national pastime.

Haven't seen him signed by anyone yet.

What was his hitting line when you released him?

We can hope for replacement players.  That is our only shot.

    • Talk about "lack of imagination..." -- I'm talking about the ZiPS figures, not Szymborski or the Orioles. Hardly seems worth running the projections over five years if there's so little variation from year to year for each of those players. Maybe I'm just spoiled by wildly fluctuating careers in baseball sim games... or reality itself.
    • Wow, I'm shocked to see we're technically still in it. I basically called it done a couple of losses ago. But how could I forget, it ain't over till it's over! 6 games left, so basically the O's have been in contention for 90 percent of the season. Who'd a thunk?
    • The original intention is to stock up on international players which he’s also done. 
    • Well, we're up against it now.   Toronto beat the Yankees tonight.  There's now only one way the O's can make the playoffs: 1) Sweep the Red Sox 2) Toronto loses three to the Yankees the next three days 3) Seattle loses at least 2 games ([email protected], 4 vs Oak)*     *If Seattle goes 5-1 or better, we would still be OK if Houston loses at least 5 of their last 6 (2vsSea, 4 vs Tex) 4) Angels lose at least 1 more game (2 vs SD, 3 @Dodgers)
    • o   (vs. DEVIL RAYS, 9/21)   deGrom had 14 Strikeouts over 7 Inning Pitched tonight ...... but he was charged with a loss, as his Mets fell by a score of 2-1.   https://www.espn.com/mlb/boxscore?gameId=401226481   For the 2020 season overall, deGrom has a 2.14 ERA and an 0.921 WHIP.   o
    • “Keegan Akin started in the bullpen this year with the Baltimore Orioles but has since moved to the rotation. So far it has been paying off for the Orioles as the rookie has been nothing short of impressive. In four starts Akin has produced a 2.35 ERA, 1.62 FIP, 36.4 K%, and 15.5 SwStr%. What is even more impressive is who he put those numbers up against. In those four starts he has faced the Yankees twice, the Braves, and the Blue Jays. All very formidable offenses.  “The only issue with Akin besides the small sample size is that he lives in the zone a little too much. He has a low O-Swing% of 26.3% which means hitters aren’t chasing him outside of the zone. With command issues stemming from the minors he also might be hesitant to live outside the zone and risk walking too many hitters. This is definitely something we have to monitor.   “Akin’s main strength is his fastball which has above average movement in both vertical and horizontal movement. While it doesn’t have much velocity the movement of the pitch makes up for it. He also places it well trying to place it high in the zone as often as possible. That fastball is paired with a changeup that straight up fools hitters. It comes in 10 mph slower than his fastball with late vertical drop at the bottom of the zone. His changeup currently holds an impressive 20.3 SwStr%. “As for 2021 Akin will be an interesting pitcher to evaluate. A very small sample size alone puts a lot of this into question. But with what looks like a solid fastball/changeup combination he will be worth a shot towards the end of drafts.” https://fantasy.fangraphs.com/analyzing-rookie-pitchers-part-ii/
