The O’s: Sleepwalking Thru September

I feel the same way guys!

It’s September, the time of the year when the Orioles take another sub par season and put an exclamation point on it! For the 11th time in the last 12 years the Orioles will finish in 4th or worst place in the A.L. East (including back to back last place campaigns.)

Since 2000, excluding the 2004 season (the season the O’s finished 3rd) the Orioles are 69-153 in September. That’s a .325 winning percentage. Historically, this team packs it in sometime in August and just gives up. They are 0-2 so far this year. The team lacks heart…it lacks fire. And quite frankly, after 12 years I’m growing tired of it. I’m tired of dropping $250 (or whatever it is now) for the Extra Innings package and having the O’s be 20 games out in July. DirecTV does not issue refunds, not even pro-rated ones.

Trembley needs to go. He’s a nice guy and I was a supporter early on, but he’s done nothing with this team. I want a link to the “Oriole way.” Give me Rick Dempsey, Rich Dauer or my #1 choice Bill Ripken.

I’m so frustrated and angry over the Orioles and the same old pitiful performance year in and year out. It’s not realistic for me to say I’m never going to root for them again…because after 30+ years they are a part of my makeup. But, I need to start getting some return on my investment…and it needs to come soon.

Help me baby Jesus…

Cheers and Hail
