That Stench You Smell Is The Baltimore Orioles.
There have been 6 games since I have last updated. The Orioles have lost all of them. Let's hand out some awards.
On Monday, the O's opened a 3 game series with the Blue Jays. Chris Tillman turned in a poor effort (4 earned runs in 5 innings) to earn his 4th loss as the Jays won 9-2. Felix Pie drove in both runs for the O's.
The BWP Clipped Wing Award winner for this game is... Bob McCrory!
McCrory is making a late season push up the CWA leaderboard with his poor pitching performances. He pitched 2/3 of an inning and gave up 4 earned runs in this game.
On Tuesday, the O's carried a 5-2 lead going into the 8th inning. Naturally their bullpen blew it and they lost 6-5 in 11 innings. Brian Roberts drove in 2 runs for the O's
The BWP Clipped Wing Award winner for this game is... Jim Johnson!
He blew the save, he gets the award.
On Wednesday, the Blue Jays won 7-3 to finish off the sweep. Jeremy Guthrie pitched poorly giving up 7 runs in 7 innings. Michael Aubrey and Matt Wieters homered for the O's.
The BWP Clipped Wing Award winner for this game is... Jeremy Guthrie!
He now has the CWA lead!
On Friday, the O's opened up a weekend series against the Cleveland Indians. David Hernandez pitched well enough to keep the O's in the game, allowing 2 earned runs in 6 innings. However a fielding mistake by Melvin Mora and some untimely hitting by the O's helped the Indians pull out a 4-2 victory. Nick Markakis homered for the O's.
The BWP Clipped Wing Award winner for this game is... Cesar Izturis!
Izturis went 1/4 with a strikeout while leaving 6 men on base.
On Saturday, Jason Berken sucked, the bullpen sucked, and the O's lost 9-8. Luke Scott homered and drove in 3 runs for the O's.
The BWP Clipped Wing Award winner for this game is... Sean Henn!
No clue who he is but he gave up 3 runs without recording an out. WOOOOOO!
On Sunday, Chris Tillman got shelled and the O's bats were stifled as they lost 9-0. Luke Scott had 2 hits for the Orioles.
The BWP Clipped Wing Award winner for this game is... Chris Tillman!
6 ER in 2 IP.
So there you have it. With one week left in the season, the O's are playing some of the worst baseball I have ever seen. My updates have gotten progressively worse and I apologize for that. I'm not going to make excuses. No one reads anyway.
