Wednesday Bird Droppings: Where the Orioles are 4-8 over their last 12

It would behoove the Orioles to start winning.

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Today is Wednesday, and if the Orioles don't win tonight they will face their first sweep of the season. Since starting 7-0 they have gone 4-8, which is so much less fun. I'm pretty in the dumps about them right now. I know the offense will heat back up again, but that doesn't make the recent games any easier to watch.

Is today your birthday? Happy birthday! You have zero Orioles birthday buddies, nor do you have any celebrity birthday buddies that I find especially compelling. Happy birthday Sheena Easton.
