This game (9/20/08) goes to show you that the Orioles problem this season has been pitching. Even though Brain Burress pitched well against the Yankees; the Orioles have to improve on their pitching. Especially their starting pitching. If the Orioles do not improve their starting pitching, the Orioles are going to be marooned for years to come.

And the brilliance of taking Burres out after seven innings served what purpose, Trembley? I'm really curious why you took out a pitcher who was dominating Yankee hitters for.....Jamie Walker. Brilliant.

He took him out because he is a giant A-HOLE and the dumbest damn manager in baseball. How in the name of God are we stuck with such a f-ing idiot.

Terrific comments today. Concur!
Trembley has never graduated from Little League Manager school. He has never been able to judge pitcher talent or his own players desire to win. He couldn't play one game without changing the lineup. I've always wonder how many times he has
replaced the batboy. It's about time that Trembley needs a rest not the ballplayers.

Where's all the talk about Trembley being a candidate for manager of the year? Why does he consistently put Walker into games? BIG mistake bringing this arrogant bum back!

Yeah that really sucks such a great pitching effort wasted by no offense, it would have been real nice to come away with that type of win!

Trembley should be replaced by a monkey with a calculator. Seven strong innings and 91 pitches and remove Burres? No wonder these pitchers have so little confidence. They'll be pulled out of the game no matter how well they pitch.

Painful loss? Try 90 of them. The whole season was painful.

Great game today, a real 1960's or 70 type of game. No ones fault that we lost, if you can't score it puts everyone in a tough spot. It's been an uplifting stretch of games I had been worried we were going to sign some free agent pitchers, now it shows we can get by okay next year with what we have and collect our 70 wins. Baseball is a lot like hold-em', you dont push all-in until you have a good hand and we need to fold again next year and shoot for 10'-11' or 12'.

So, they've lost four in a row and 21 of 26. That makes you happy.

You're happy because you expect them to finish in last place next year.

YOU HATE THE ORIOLES.

Anyone reading your ridiculous postings can see you are "uplifted" by the team's horrible losing.

I agree with those of you who criticize Trembley's handling of pitching. I think next year he should forget about pitch counts and go with his gut.

The past few games have shown that these young kids can pitch. It doesn't wipe away their many poor outings, but they are young and the potential is there.

After today, even with a hard loss, I see great hope for the future.

That was pretty funny. I forgot to mention we are closing in on the 5th draft pick also, a win by Atlanta (they are leading) tonight and we are there and that of course makes me overjoyed. The recent stretch I was referring to was the last week or so when the games have been tight and watchable. Give me close games at this point of the rehab and its all I require to be happy.

Been saying all year that Trembley is a pitiful manager and has no idea how to handle a bullpen or fill out a lineup card.yes he had a lot of injuries to starting pitchers but how many times did he pull a pitcher who was dominating the opponents only to watch the bullpen(which he drastically overused)implode once again.And to have Adam Jones bunting with a guy on second who leads the major leagues in steals of third and was already in scoring position was unbelievable.What a dumba**.And of course Markakis gets a hit with nobody on.Goodbye Walker,Goodbye Millar,Goodbye Ramon,three over paid,pitiful excuses for major league players.Cowboy gone,one can only hope.

Actually you make a good point. I ALWAYS want the O's to win. But at this point in the season, I would rather see Brian Burress pitch seven shutout innings, and lose 1-0 than win the game 11-9, and have Burress get shelled again. Let's hope tomorrow we get another great start from Chris Waters AND win the game.
