It means the Orioles are going to have a difficult time establishing new standards for suckiness.

The Mariners fired their manager and got their first triple play in 15 years.

As of this post, the mighty Baltimore Orioles no longer have the worst winning percentage, or fewest wins, in baseball. A Pittsburgh win against San Diego could change that, but we're movin' baby, we're movin'.

I know nothing about this backbreaker thing you speak of. Pittsburgh did lose, though, so O's are currently not the worst record. Look out Seattle, you're next!

Lack of diligent reporting is unforgivable. Who is that asshole?

Last 4:

5-0

7-3

3-2

5-4

Pitching has been excellent under new manager. Only one bad inning in this stretch (5 runs in the 7-3 loss). Four games behind Seattle, and playing them now.

Actually, I think yesterday was the first time he got in the game as a Mighty Oriole. He pitched the seventh inning, giving up one walk, no hits, no runs, and striking out two. O's had already given up the six runs by then.

Not only do the mighty O's no longer have the worst record in baseball, they have caught Seattle in the race to avoid the worst record in the American League.

Now have a better record than Seattle, which lost. Expect them to catch Kansas City and Cleveland as well before the season ends.

Also, regarding last night's game and the dutch oriole:

Quote:
The Orioles snapped their 0-for-the-season against the Toronto Blue Jays, finally ending up on the winning side with a 4-3, 11-inning victory. Though the Birds went just 2-for-11 with runners in scoring position, that second hit was a walkoff RBI single by Luke Scott (pic) that sealed the Birds’ 12th win in 15 extra-inning games. After starter Brian Matusz was knocked out of the game in the first with a liner off his triceps, the O’s bullpen threw 10 excellent innings, led by Rick VandenHurk’s brilliant 5 1/3 frames of long relief.

Beating them in a bar? As in a bar brawl?

That's the only explanation I can think of. Or maybe it was really the Giants, they also play in Black and Orange, easy to get confused.
