"I think there's more frustration and disappointment [right now]," Orioles outfielder Chris Davis said. "But in the next few days when you sit down and reflect over what's happened the last six or seven months, we've got a lot of things to be proud of. To go from a bottom-of-the-division team to a competitive team that was playing in the postseason, we're not where we want to be, but we made a lot of strides in the right direction this year."
