Incredibly Sucky Baltimore Orioles Thread 

Post#1 » by WizStorm » Fri Apr 16, 2010 12:24 pm

When Matusz isn't pitching, the O's aren't even watchable right now.

Only players worth a damn right now are:
- Brian Matusz
- Kevin Millwood
- Mark Hendrickson
- Felix Pie
- Matt Wieters

I've never seen a team play such fundamentally flawed baseball. About the only way this team can score runs is through a home run. There's no situational or timely hitting and the baserunning might be even worse than last year (which I thought would be impossible).

Another great starting pitching performance waisted from Guthrie. Another blown save in the 9th, this time from last years failed closer. O's sitting at 1-11 now.

Guthrie has made me a believer again. He's got a 3.15 ERA in 20 IP with only 1 HR allowed and just 3 BB. He should be 3-0, but of course the line up is the worst line-up in baseball with no hope for improvement.

I've completely lost interest in this season.

Usually, it takes till about All-Star Break for me to become completely disinterested, but this is a miller record. 12 games in and I won't even turn the game on.

It's really an indictment of Angelos as the owner.

He's made numerous bad front office choices, which has rusted out the belly of the kettle (talent).

Of the current 230 plus foreign born players on MLB rosters, the Orioles were responsible for signing a paltry TWO of them. (One of them is Bedard, who was born in Canada)
Basketball is driven by three principles:

1) Movement 2) Application of fundamentals 3) Predictability
