Welp, it was an exciting couple of days but the season is obviously over now. Pack it up. Head home. No sense in waiting 'round for the inevitable conclusion. The O's are toast. The season is lost. Time to start rebuilding. They'll never win with these scrubs. Gotta go after Robinson Cano in the offseason. Oh, and bring back Mark Reynolds and his Gold Glove caliber defense at 1B. So stupid to have let him walk. Gawd. And a closer. The bullpen just sucks. Maybe they can trade Wieters to the Phillies for Papelbon. He's a PROVEN CLOSER!
