O’s hit Rock Bottom


What can you say? I went up to the Yards this afternoon to see the Birds take on the World Champion Chicago Cubs. The Cubs are in a fight for the NL Central lead and they are playing with purpose. The Orioles on the other hand are…

…just showing up. Ubaldo Jimenez started on the mound and by the end of the third inning Chicago had a 6-0 lead. Newly acquired Jose Quintana was on top of his game for Chicago mixing a respectable fastball with a nasty curve which had the Birds’ hitters swinging at air all afternoon. The number pretty much tell the tale. Cubs had ten runs on fifteen hits. The Orioles had zero on fourteen strikeouts.

I’m trying to discern a silver lining. I’m not succeeding.
