I was hoping the Baltimore Orioles would use the All Star break as a change to recharge their batteries and come out fighting, but it looks like that case of terrible they caught is still lingering.
I said the O’s would not compete this year and Andy MacPhail didn’t make the right moves to help this club, but I honestly didn’t think it would be this bad. I actually picked them to win 83 games and finish a hair over .500, but it’s apparent that is not going to happen.
How frustrated are you all with the offense, particularly the lack of production with runners in scoring position?
A dominant performance by Jair Jurrjens only added to the Baltimore Orioles’ growing frustrations. Jurrjens threw a one-hitter for his first career shutout, Jason Heyward ended a long home-run drought and the Atlanta Braves beat the slumping Orioles 4-0 on Friday night.
This was the season the Baltimore Orioles were going to take the next step. At least that’s what I thought.
The Cincinnati Reds scored 19 runs in three games against the last-place Baltimore Orioles, yet lost two of three to fall into fourth place in the NL Central.
Baltimore Orioles right-hander Jeremy Guthrie has a strained muscle in his back.
Jeremy Guthrie pitched five shutout innings before a strained back forced him to leave the game, and the Baltimore Orioles scored two runs in the ninth inning before holding off the Toronto Blue Jays 4-3 on Thursday.
Orioles starter Jeremy Guthrie has left his start against the Toronto Blue Jays with a strained back after allowing one hit and a walk over five shutout innings.
Leaving the bullpen for his start against the Toronto Blue Jays, Jeremy Guthrie had no clue that he was in store for a very difficult afternoon.
Instead of just lamenting the change up that he let grab too much of the plate, Baltimore’s Jeremy Guthrie was also left kicking himself for a moment two batters before Justin Smoak’s three-run homer.
I never thought this Orioles team was great by any means, but that was an absolute punch to the gut.
