Playing to the Season's End

The Orioles won a baseball game last night over the Toronto Blue Jays by the score of 2-1.

The pushed the Orioles record to 72-74, meaning that with 16 games remaining in the regular season the team is 4.5 games out of the second wild card spot and 2 games under .500.

It is a disappointing spot to be in. The season is coming to a close and the Orioles are ever closer to being on the outside of the playoffs looking in. 

The Orioles head off to New York for 4 games to play the team whose name shall remain unwritten. Following that series, they return home for the final homestead of the year beginning with the division leading Red Sox. 

Major League Baseball currently assesses the Orioles post-season chances at 1.1%. 

Pretty low. 

Very disappointing for a season that began 6 months ago.

I can envision the rain this morning to be the tears of Orioles fans as we come to grips with the finality of the season's end.
