Longtime O's fan here, but the writings on the wall. Throw away the rose colored glasses. Not being negative, just realistic. Bucks stubbornness by sticking with JJ when struggling, and the teams inability to hit in clutch situations cost a LOT of W's this season.zach Britton, in the heat of a pennant race. REALLY ? FLAHERTY ? Wow. Why not try Manny batting 3rd? His feet are wet now, right? I don't profess to be Casey Stengel , but C'mon man!!!! Never saw a team hit so many foul pop ups to the catcher. I wonder what the stat is on that...we do lead the league in HRs though, lol. oh well, guess I will go fire up that hot stove....

I don't understand why if anyone says anything bad, they're immediately attacked. What, we're supposed to accept losing? Sometimes the truth hurts. This team IS playing like crap. The pitching and even the hitting sucks.

And if anyone can't see a split coming in the White Sox series, they need their head examined. THIS team OS not capable of beating anyone 3/4 let alone 4/4.

When you write an OP like that, you should be slammed. I'm not being negative, just realistic.

Here we go with this argument again. Nobody ever said anything about not complaining when they play badly, or lose. We had 14 years worth of that to go around, and when that's all you do, that's all you talk about. But, when you post a thread with an unintelligible OP post like that reeking of negativity, lack of imagination, and the same snarky attitude that people post as if to say "I told you this team wasn't good enough and now here I am," you should expect criticism and people to call you out on it. Nobody accepts losing on this site, NOBODY. But some people have a bit more clarity to see through it and see the forest for the tree's, no matter how hard it is.

And you're not even right in what you said. The O's beat the Red Sox 3/4 earlier in the year. They did the same thing to the A's. They swept the Yankees. The White Sox are awful, basically the O's of years past, and not the 2011 Orioles of years past. Does that mean the Orioles will win the series, I don't know, and nobody else does. But to say they can't is completely and utterly wrong.

We've played five straight series against playoff contenders, and we've lost four out of five of them. That's not negativity, that's reality.

And here's what a coherent, rational post looks like in contrast to the OP. It isn't just negative posts that get slammed; it's bad negative posts.

Didn't I see this same post a few days ago?

2.5 games out of a play off spot. With 4 games left against the Yankees and Rays, 6 with Boston.

Yankees play Boston 7 times and Rays 3 times

Rays play Boston 3 times.

There are games to be made up if we take care of our own business. It's NOT over yet, but we need a run quickly.

I really thought they would turn it on after beating the Indians on Monday, but instead...more of the same. Give the Indians credit. Now have to go 8-16 to reach .500. After watching this team struggle the past 3 months, thats all im hoping for.

This isn't the same team that beat the Red Sox 3/4 and went out west and took 3/4 against the A's and Angels earlier this year. Can we agree on that?

You could have said the same thing about the last 5 series against TB, OAK, BOS, NYY, and CLE. They went 6-9. They are 2 under .500 since the break. Why should we have any confidence that they can win 16-18 of their last 26 games? At some point, they are what they are.
