The Bottom Is Falling Out...

I was generally optimistic that the Orioles could have made a strong run at .500 and appeased fans back in late July or early August. Well, perhaps I thought that the "swoon" that has accompanied this team for the past four years like a dark cloud would magically stay away this season; however, I guess things in life often don't work out the way it should.

After a sweep by the Rays, we've now lost two in a row to the Red Sox -- including being schooled by their offense, led by Dustin Pedroia (it's very odd I am typing this, but compare and contrast him following Ortiz in the lineup) on Monday and Tuesday. The offense has been respectable, but the pitching -- oh lord, the pitching -- has been dreadful, and even moreso when facing quality teams. Right now, the arms we have up in Baltimore cannot get the job done, and seem to be feeble against major league batters.

There was not much to write about last night, we simply got our arses kicked badly. The Orioles are now in a five-game funk, and losers of their last ten out of eleven. How much worse does it get? Now, you've got wonder if this swoon will have any bearing in Dave Trembley getting an extension or not, considering he was universally lauded for the job he's done so for?

Oh yes, with Guthrie out for at least a start, how much worse could it get?
