Sorry for the delay today, but I have been feeling sick all day.
Well, unless you were under a rock yesterday, you know the Orioles lost last night thanks to home run by Howie Kendrick last night served by Chris Ray.
The Angels ended up winning the game by a score of 9-7.
Aubrey Huff hit for the cycle last night, but the night is now remembered for yet another Oriole defeat in the hands of the bullpen, rather than the feat or a near-comeback by the black and orange.
Steve Trachsel got hit hard, but give credit to Rob Bell for keeping the Orioles in the game.
Folks, what do we do with Chris Ray? Is he meant to be a closer, or is he just in a funk?

If you didn’t hear, Steve Trachsel has been put on the DL – however, that’s news to him. He looked terrible last night, but is he hurt?
