When the Excitement is Gone


This is a transition week for my interest in sports.

Standings from mlb.com
The Orioles have the day off before beginning a season-ending three-game series in Tampa to decide which if the three teams: Toronto, Tampa, or Baltimore will secure the spot as the worst team in the AL East. 

The Orioles have already secured a losing record for this season and can only minimize the damage of the already hugely disappointing season.

If only . . .  the Orioles had consistent starting pitching, and hitting, and defense, and that about sums it up. They were so close to being a contender. They were actually making noise about getting into the playoffs right up until the epic collapse of two weeks ago. It continued by being swept in ugly fashion by the Pirates this week. 

The Orioles have lost 16 of the past 20 games, That says it all.

No World Series games will be played in Baltimore again this season. 

Now my attention can turn to hockey and football. The Penguins are looking to defend their Stanley Cup Championship and the Ravens, at 2-1, are hoping to make the playoffs.
