Mariners 8, Orioles 2: Fisted

Come on, you knew that was going to be the headline, didn't you?

Brad Bergesen pitched some garbage for the third consecutive time. Wiggy ruined the good will he'd built up among O's fans by booting what would have been a double play ball at third. And the Orioles hitters continued to look completely clueless as they were held hitless until the 7th inning.

This team is not the Orioles. I'm not making apologies, I'm not making excuses, I'm just throwing it out there. Reimold can't play the field. Roberts is going to be out for a long time. So is Pie. Wiggy shouldn't be playing third base. And I don't care how many games he plays, I refuse to acknowledge Julio Lugo as a member of this team.

Doesn't matter, though, because the regulars look just terrible. Adam Jones can't hit his way out of a wet paper bag and he doesn't look that hot in the outfield. Nick Markakis looks awful.

Bad starting pitching? Check. Bad defense? Check. Bad offense? Check.

Let's do it again tomorrow!
