Next four weeks are going to be brutal

I was just looking at my handy pocket O's schedule that they hand out when you buy tickets, and the O's face a tough road in the coming month. I'm going to try to maintain my zen attitude throughout, but my faith will certainly be tested. Behold:

  • 13-14 May: vs. Boston
  • 16-18 May: vs. Washington 
  • 20-22 May: @ New York
  • 23-25 May: @ Tampa Bay
  • 26-28 May: vs. New York
  • 30 May - 2 June: vs. Boston
  • 3-5 June: @ Minnesota
  • 6-8 June: @ Toronto
  • 10-12 June: @ Boston

Except for Toronto and Washington, that's pretty freaking tough. My current outlook on the O's tells me logically that it doesn't matter, but it's going to be hard to watch the carnage.  And with 21 of those 27 games against teams in the AL East, well, you know.

So to try to stay positive, here are few things I'll be happy with, regardless of the team's record:

  • Continuing awesomeness of Daniel Cabrera
  • Starting pitching remaining competent
  • Trade value being built up for Huff, Payton, Millar, Bradford, and the like
  • Playing good hard games, not making silly mental or fundamental mistakes
