Well, my O's take a 2-1 lead into the 8th inning and manage to lose 5-2 to an overachieving Toronto team that sweeps us at home..

And just like that, we are in the AL basement at 1-5.

At least we aren't the worst in MLB.  We are only the second worse team in baseball.


 

Well, as of now, the Astros are 0-6.

Who currently is the worst team in Baseball? Also, I think the yankees shouldn't be allowed to play anymore

The Padres.  It's always the Padres.  Their actual record is irrelevant.

Yes, I think they need to abandon the facade and just go back to their uniform colors inspired by biological waste products.

Fixed it.  ;D

Actually it's Houston believe it or not. 0-6.  The Pirates are currently 3-3 which is a better winning percentage than they will end the season with.  (Or at least the last 17 seasons would lead you to believe that's going to be the case again this year.)

Nice pics!

Oh, the (dis)Astros are no longer 0-6..... they are 0-7!   My sister and brother in law went to the Cards home opener today and were quite pleased.

Not good to be 7 games into the season and be 5 games out of first!

So if you were the manager of the NY Mets, what would you say to your starting pitcher? "That's ok sonny, you only let 8 runs in in three innings, it could have been worse"


Personally, I would say: "Dude, you missed the mark more than a storm trooper"  :D

JD Drew is "sore".

The fans around here are quite sore as well.  But I think the other definition of the word.  >:(

From Wikipedia and other sources:

"St. Louis manager Tony La Russa apparently had concerns about Drew's effort. In his book Three Nights in August, Buzz Bissinger mentions La Russa's frustration with Drew's lack of passion. La Russa tells Bissinger that it seems Drew has decided to "settle for 75%" of his talent, in large part because of his enormous contract.[2] His constant time on the DL earned him a few nicknames from fans including "Nancy Drew", "D.L. Drew", and "A.H. (Always Hurt) Drew".

Pittsburgh's obviously the symbol of futility since '92, but I firmly believe it doesn't get any worse than what's going on in Kansas City right now. Dayton Moore, thank you very much... :)

I have no idea why ANYONE pays Hawkins to pitch for them, I really do not.

At least KC has some glimmer of occasional hope with their starting pitching.

Do the Pirates have anyone good? (I don't follow NL teams that closely and part of my draft strategy is "avoid Pirates".  Actually that's a good thing to do in most situations in life.)

Because he had an ERA of 2.13 last season!  :P

I'm sure that was going through Melvin's noogin when he gave him the 2/7.5 deal. I'm just waiting patiently until we have a new front office. And check this out, Bob, eight-games in and Macha's brought our owner out already:



:D

The Buckos are on the upswing, and they've a nice nucleus of players that will become a part of their core in McCutchen, Pedro Alvarez, Tim Alderson, Jose Tabata, etcetera. Things are a bit brighter in Pittsburgh, and hey, at least they didn't spend 8 million on the likes of Scott Podsednik, Rick Ankiel, Jason Kendall, Chris Getz, & Brian Anderson. Dayton Moore does like his speedy & athletic players. He doesn't have a clue.
