We REALLY need the team to score a pile of runs early tonight and give the front end of the BP the night off.

I'm just really frustrated. On paper we have a really good team. We need to put together a winning streak. I'm pretty sure we've had a lead in all four games during this losing streak.

Two innings and we've already stranded four runners and are 0 for 2 with RISP. Cue Sonny and Cher - The Beat Goes On.

Let me understand this. The Orioles give Norris a SEVEN RUN LEAD and he decides the best way to keep that is to hit a batter and then walk the next guy.

This is exactly the kind of game we need. Now Norris needs to go seven. Let's go on a roll Baltimore.

Other than Norris' early exit this was EXACTLY the kind of game we needed.
