Losing One Hundred Games and Fandom

When it comes to September, the Orioles for the past several seasons, to be blunt – have sucked. Right now, it seems to be par for the course with this team. On Wednesday night, the Orioles lost their seventh straight game as the Blue Jays defeated them, 7-3.

Well, long story short – Jeremy Guthrie gave up five runs in seven innings, after he could not hold a brief lead. The Jays took the lead, 5-2, in the fourth inning and never looked back thanks to a three-run fourth inning.

Michael Aubrey hit his first homer as an Oriole off Scott Richmond -- who earned the win – and Matt Wieters hit his 8th home run in the fifth inning, but overall, the offense struggled, plus Guthrie who battled on the mound, just didn’t have it.

Rather than ramble on the game, the Orioles just need to win 3 more games to avoid the 100 loss plateau. Look, we all knew pretty much that the team was going to struggle with the young pitching, but could things have gotten this bad? The organization shows a lot of hope and talent, but as a fan and a customer it’s hard, and very disheartening to see your team lose season after season.
