1-8

I'm at the point now where I wanna wear a paper bag on my head out of shame when I watch the O's.  And this is at my own house!

Now it's out West for 4 against the A's and 3 against the Mariners.  All we have to do is sweep both series and we are back at .500!   ;D

What a fun game so far this afternoon; the wind's blowing out of Wrigley like mad, our pitching machine's on the mound, and we've been taking it to Big Z.

PS: k1, Ortiz needs more steal attempts! Did you by chance catch that yesterday? Hilarious, even Remy was flummoxed.

It's safe to assume Greg Zaun's a tool:

1-10 (.091)  8 losses in a row.

Like the song says, things can only get better.

If we keep playing the way we have been playing I don't see us winning any of the next 21 games.  (2 more against the A's, 3 at Seattle, a 12 game stretch against the Red Sox and the Yankees, then we have 4 at the Twins.)

Maybe we can steal a game at Seattle.  That would make us 2-30 on May 10th.

Go O's!  If you are going to be bad, then it's better to be spectacularly bad, rather than just mediocre.

They have too much talent for things not to pick up.  I'm just being a bit over-reactive.

a 20 inning (so far) game is St Louis. This is hilarious!

Nothing like having our backup outfielders pitch!

At least we did not burn out the bullpen in this game.    But our outfielder Joe Mather may have to rest a day or two!

O's manage to lose another one, 4-3 to the A's

This one was lost in the bottom of the ninth as the A's score 2 runs on a 1 out hit with bases loaded.  The game winning runner reached base on a dropped strike three that got away from our catcher.   Nothing is going right for my O's.

O's lose their 9th in a row and are now 1-11.
