This is an excerpt from a David Ginsburg AP story about the embarrassing 2005 Orioles:
Piniella, who accepted a buyout from Tampa Bay, said of Baltimore's collapse: "When you win with the frequency that they did, you're playing with a lot of confidence. That adrenaline takes you a pretty good ways. All of a sudden you start losing, and maybe you start doubting yourself a little bit. Outside of that, it's a nice ball club with some nice talent over there."
