I don't know what to say about the Orioles anymore. As much as an optimist as I am, while showing some cynicism, it is pretty much destined that the Orioles will lose 100 games in 2009?
As the Orioles left Cleveland over the weekend, they arrived in Tampa Bay, this time to face the Rays; however, despite having a 6-3 lead in the 7th inning, they found another way to lose.
