I think we've gotten a little spoiled thus far this season. All the insane offensive production and the near constant winning make shutouts hurt more. But it's worth it, I guess. Better to have won a lot then lost a little, than never to have won at all.
And I like the Orioles. I think they're a better team than their abysmal W-L record indicates...or at least they CAN be. And this was sort of a baseball equivalent of a trap game, I think. Fresh off the first sweep of the season, looking forward to the rival White Sox and an East Coast roadtrip to see if they can prove something...things just fell apart here a little. I have faith that resurrected Liriano and pink bats and sweatbands will bring some magic back this weekend though.
But this LOB nonsense is getting a little old though. Can we please bring back "Smell 'Em?" Please? I don't know if it would work without mastermind Mike Redmond. But we could sure use something as a motivator. We've gone beyond just stranding small villages on base. We're currently stranding medium to large villages, and a couple unincorporated townships. I've grown weary. Watching the game when there's baserunners should be one of the more exciting moments....but recently it's become the time when I go grab a snack from the fridge, or let the dogs outside.
