The Orioles should now cancel the rest of the season. Most of the players are mailing it in anyway. There is no more to prove. Again one of the worst teams in Oriole history.

Looks like the Orioles should push for a five month season since they seem to lose everything in September and their throwers can't get the ball over the plate. How does Jim Johnson become a starter if he is injury prone as a reliever? Seems to me the same injury will recur with him pitching for five or six innings every fifth day. Just my opinion.

Why do so many Oriole pitchers end up with some kind of tear in their shoulders? I know that these things happen to pitchers, but doesn't it seem that it happens much more often to Oriole pitchers than it does with pitchers on other teams???

Let's not forget that this was supposed to be a terrible team as the season started, we traded away most of our major league talent to build the future...stop whining, we got more than we thought we would get this year. This team was fun to watch for 3/4 of the season, and we are just living thru the reality of having little major league pitching.

Have a little faith, and look forward to next year...

Does Daniel Cabrera have some dirt on Angelos or Trembley? Why the hell is this guy still pitching in the majors? Olson has three bad outings in a row and gets sent down to the minors; Burres the same thing. Yet this head case has been here over five years and he still can't throw strikes.

There is obviously something wrong with the way in which the Orioles handle their pitchers. If we had at least one seasoned pitcher, we could have perhaps been in 3rd place. McPhail needs to order a medical or some type of study to see what the problems are with the Orioles staff and the pitchers. It has happened too frequently to be coincidental. Maybe a contributing factor is going to the bullpen too soon and using too many pitches in relief. Trembley needs to study the matter this winter.

He's got 'potential'. Or at least that's what they keep telling us.

Or he's got pictures of Peter Angelos with a shaved German Shepherd.
