That's right, your Orioles currently resemble the US Financial markets.
I've highlighted one or two points over the year. I feel like we stayed above .500 a lot longer this year, but maybe it just feels that way.
One thing I do know. Last year, we had a rash of pitcher injuries and there was virtually nobody left to throw the ball for the last three weeks of the season.
Whereas THIS year.... oh, right.
The Birds actually put up some good offensive numbers in the second half. It would seem then that MacPhail's priority should not only be finding guys who can pitch; it should be finding guys who can pitch an entire season.
