The O's wasted a good starting pitching performance from Koji Uehara tonight when George Sherrill blew a 4-3 ninth inning lead by giving up a 2 run HR to Michael Young.
I can't even pretend to like the O's anymore. It is too depressing. Peter Angelos has made a joke of this franchise. They are the laughing stock of Baltimore sports. They are completely outclassed by the Ravens. Baltimore is a football city and its not even close anymore.
The BWP Clipped Wing Award winner is obvious tonight... George Sherrill. When you blow the save you have to expect to get the Clipped Wing Award. Sherrill's ERA on the season is now 6.14, not exactly impressive for the closer. Unfortunately, the O's bullpen as a whole has looked horrible so there isn't really someone that can step up and replace Sherrill as the closer.
Enjoy the draft tomorrow Baltimore sports fans and go to sleep tonight with dreams of an Anquan Boldin trade dancing through your heads.
