The Orioles went down to Tampa, Florida and promptly lost three game to the Rays this weekend. The Tampa offense took Oriole pitching to school, out of the park at times, and to add insult to injury, scored in the double digits during each loss. Things got so bad at times watching on MASN, I just turned off the TV and walked away only to see things get worse.
At this point of the season, have the Orioles started their swoon? It does not get any easier as they face a Red Sox team starting on Monday that's looking to survive in the playoff race, the A's thereafter, then they face the red hot Indians and counter with teams all over the .500 mark.
For Baltimore, it looks like another losing season is becoming a stark reality, and despite some of the successes this season, it's back to the drawing board for MacPhail.
