Playing Out The String

Not much going on with the Orioles lately, besides getting their usual roughing-up from Boston. I’m waiting until the season is officially over to take a look back, at both the team and the individual players (my goal is to do a post on everyone that appeared in an Orioles uniform this year).  For now I’d just note that the Birds are 60-89 and need just 3 wins in their last 13 games to avoid the 100 loss season many have been dreading.  The O’s have also moved passed the Royals for the worst record in the AL right now, and are just 3 games ahead of the Pirates for the second worst record in all of baseball (the Nationals are easily in last at 51-98). With series against Toronto (twice), Cleveland, and Tampa Bay left – and many of the O’s youngsters already shut down – it’s pretty clearly football season in Baltimore. (Go Ravens!)
