Orioles

Post by scooter »

A single from Maikel Franco won it for the Orioles today, and they moved to 2-0 on the season. I am predicting now that they will win the next 160 games.

I tried to run the Orioles in OOTP Baseball last season and you really just couldn't. Davis's (and Cobb's) contracts are so huge and they provide so little that it just throws everything off. Actually, kudos to them for putting together a team with a few bargain-basement guys like Franco and Matt Harvey. If they lose, well, they lose. There's literally nothing else you can do to make it worse...

The O's are now 9-5 on the road and 4-10 at home. I am disturbed by this.

Coming perilously close to a winning record. Hmm.

Having an Oriole throw a no-hitter should not make me feel this depressed, but I missed the entire thing... :(
