If the Orioles didn't have bad luck, then they would not have any whatsoever.
Last night - again - the Orioles lost to the Mariners, 4-1, to be only be swept in their series out West and to fall to 2-14. The season so far has become a road to nowhere and as it is now, forget about .500 -- there are some people who probably need to worry about keeping their jobs.
Baltimore manager Dave Trembley held a closed door meeting before the game and took his team to task; however, that did little good. I figure he should have done this all last week before the situation became absolutely heerendous.
I don't think anyone ever thought the Orioles would be 2-14 after 16 games, but someone should have stepped up earlier to rally the troops and right this ship.
