After two road victories against the hated NYYs, the Orioles stand in second place at 55-49. Back in May, when this team was leading the field at 25-14, I said they were probably a .470 team on talent but stood a very good chance to finish with their first winning season in 15 years. Since that day, their 30-35 record is good for a .460 winning percentage; so I think I did pretty well!
What a weird team. The wheels keep coming off, and then it’s like, “hey, look, I found another wheel, albeit one just as rickety as the one that recently came off.”
