Wow, we really suck lately.
I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I really want the All-Star Break to get here, like, pronto. If this was MLB 2K12, I would’ve hit the reset button on my console several times by now, because this lack of offense is really becoming a major issue. The team had multiple chances to score, and with the exception of J.J. Hardy’s 2-run homer nobody took advantage of those opportunities.
On the other hand, Cleveland had two 3-run homers, so there you go. That’s how to take advantage of opportunities, guys.
I really don’t even know what to say at this point, but this team needs to get their act together quickly if they want to hang around in this division. The Orioles are still in second place, but they’re now 5.5 games behind the first-place Yankees (who admittedly had a huge winning streak recently). They look weak and feeble and I can’t wait until July 9th when they get some time off because they’re falling apart on us. It’s sad because they looked quite competent for the longest time, but those glaring issues – like offense and occasional pitching problems (namely giving up home runs) – are showing more and more and teams are starting to jump on them.
I hate that I have to do this for the third game in a row, but I have to give the Orioles a Morris Marina.
