The Experiement Continues

Written by: Peter Coolbaugh

Well, there is hope. Despite being down early last night to the Rays by the score of 5-1, the Orioles roared back to take the victory 7-5 before 15,000 fans on t-shirt Tuesday.

Adam Jones hit two big bombs with a total of 4 RBI on the night. Aside from his error with the glove in CF, the young man put in a stellar performance and has announced his presence with authority to the rest of the American League.

After dropping 2 of 3 to the Yankees, the Orioles look to get back on track with games against Tampa and then on the road at upstart Kansas City and on to the new overpriced Yankee Stadium.

Are we as bad as we seem at 5 games under .500? Sometimes, yes. Starting pitching is a problem for sure and I bet when Rich Hill returns we will see the end of Hendrickson or Eaton. Bullpen has shown improvement, but I get a lump in my throat every time Sherrill takes the mound. But thanks to the bats of Jones, Markakis, Huff and Roberts we are not as bad as we might be if not for good offense.

Sure, we are on the bottom right now as expected. But Tampa is bad too. And the Blue Jays did not get the offseason memo that they are supposed to be terrible as well. Since it is only May 13, a lot can change between now and the first week of October.

Check out Sports Illustrated and see how the Orioles owner is listed as the worst in MLB. To take the sting out of the pain a bit, Mr. Biscotti of the Ravens was listed as one of the 5 best owners in the NFL.

Until next time... keep swinging for the fences.
