Orioles’ New Owners

It’s not quite Notre Dame vs. Navy (42 straight Irish wins in football), but it’s impressive. The Red Sox ownership of the Orioles continues in devastating fashion. The 22nd win in 25 tries against the Birds arrived with another late inning lead smashed away and everyone in Fenway South
(even the outnumbered Orioles fans) knew it was coming.

It didn’t matter that Wily Mo Pena was 1-20 this season against right handers. It didn’t matter that Chris Ray was more rested than Rip Van Winkle. It didn’t matter that Boston was distracted by Thorne-Gate, or that they might look ahead to the weekend series with the Yankees.

Sam Perlozzo, who has thoroughly enjoyed his revamped bullpen, saw for a 2nd straight night every decision turn out wrong.

The good news about the loss, they’re used to it, therefore regrouping on the road tonight against the Indians should prove simple. But even if simple, it’s crucial to bounce back.

Should the two game sweep, and overall four game skid really swell into something larger you can pencil in losing season number 10. They lack the overall talent and depth to handle a lengthy, messy stretch of misery.
