If someone had told me 4 years ago that the Orioles being 57-56 after 113 games would be a major letdown, I would request to keep the letdowns coming.

That said, being only a game over .500 at this point in the season has been a letdown for me as an Oriole fan ...... in the context of the fact that we are coming off of 3 consecutive winning seasons, and 2 playoff births.

So let me get this straight...at 57-56, the Orioles are one of the top 5 letdowns, but at 58-56, the Nationals aren't??

Yes, some picked us to win the AL East. But EVERYONE picked Washington to win the NL East.

I called that they were overrated at the beginning of the year, and people looked at me as if I was stupid. God i love being right.

And now the Orioles have a better record than the Nationals, who lost again tonight:

And the Orioles play in a tougher division than do the Nationals, also.

Over the Red Sox?

:rofl:

I guess there are some people who still think that record = true talent. Like when I was 12 and expected the '84 Orioles to win 98 again.

So the 2015 Orioles were projected to win 96, and the Red Sox were projected to 71. But that doesn't explain the omission of the Nats, who should have been penciled in for 96 but are currently on pace for 82.

What are you talking about?

Because I am talking about all the talking heads that thought the Red Sox were reloaded and ready to dominate.

And yet the Red Sox are in last place playing right at their Pythag.

Who had the O's projected to win 96 games?

That was from yesterday's interview: Dan Duquette: "I thought we'd be a better ball club than we are".

And I agree with him. 9 guys from the Opening Day Roster gone, having not produced and we still have Gausman, Tillman, Hardy, and Reimold having career worst years. Did I miss anyone? There are so many...

Yeah it sure is a big letdown to me.

Go ahead and take a look at Hardy's years in 2006 and 2009.

Go ahead and take a look at Reimold's years in 2010 and 2013.

Go ahead and take a look at Tillman's years from 2009-2011.

Go ahead and take a look at Gausman's year in 2013.

I was just suggesting that the folks who think the O's are underachieving and the Red Sox not are the folks who think that this year's projection is basically last year's record.
