Orioles Collapse

I guess that it is hard to say that the Orioles have collapsed as it appears that they never came out of the dugout committed to the season.

The O's currently sport a disappointing 5-13 record. They have a five game losing streak and face Detroit again tomorrow needing a win to avert another series sweep. 

I had predicted a 7-10 start, but thought they would likely manage to win the Detroit series, hence I was expecting them to be 9-11 after the Detroit series. Since there was a rainout in Boston, they could have been as good as it 9-10. It isn't there yet.

The team has too many holes--pitching, fielding, batting. Aside from that, they are in pretty good shape.

There are still 144 games to play and the O's can turn things around. They seem to be close in most games and have lost many games during the late innings. The only highlight so far is that they have not lost a Thursday game! 

Maybe they will win this afternoon's game!

I can hope. The beginning of the season optimism has evaporated.
