Orioles Go For The Record!!!

I figure you have to embrace this sort of stuff....

The only obstacles standing in the Orioles' way are the occasional competence of Dylan Bundy and a healthy and recently activated Darren O'Day.  Can the pitching staff keep the ball in the yard?  Can the defense eliminate untimely mistakes?  A day of intrigue awaits...  I'm getting nervous just thinking about it!  Go Os!

May as well get the record, it will make for a hell of a story that we set the all time record for pitching futility the same year we win the World Series. ;)

 

That's the spirit!

Turns out they never got close to the real record.

The Orioles ended their streak of allowing five-or-more runs in each of 20 consecutive games. The streak was tied for the modern (since 1900) MLB record set by the 1924 Phillies, but, despite what you may read elsewhere, it fell nine games shy of the all-time record for consecutive games allowing five or more runs, 29 by Louisville of the National League in 1894.

While people are happy the 1924 Phillies keep their record for now, through today, in 32 of the last 40 games the O’s have given up 5 runs, and eight of those games the Orioles surrendered 10+.  In 75 games to date, the Orioles have allowed ten 10+ run games compared to 13 for all of 2016.  Last week at the Media Night, I asked Dan Duqette, given the pitching struggles, might the Orioles this offseason go from "Grow the arms, buy the bats" to "buy the arms."  Dan responded there are many ways to get arms and the example he gave was Wei-Yin Chen.

Since tying the all-time Major League record (1901-Present) for most consecutive games of ceding 5 or more runs, the Orioles HAVE NOT done so in 5 out of their last 8 games.

They've  actually been giving the team a chance to win.    It's been refreshing.
