Orioles could feasibly finish with <100 losses

Orioles could feasibly finish with <100 losses

PostPost #1 by 2131andBeyond » September 6th, 2010, 11:31 pm

At this point, after yesterday's win over the Yankees in a tough game played in New York, the Orioles could avoid the 100 loss mark at this point with an 11-13 record for the rest of the season.

Even with the extremely rough schedule, that number is extremely surprising to hear. Two months ago (or more, for some), most people would have called me crazy for thinking the O's could finish with less than 100 losses. Though with Trembley or Samuel that didn't seem possible, Buck has shown to us that so far, we can mildly compete with the best at this point. Though a lot of work still needs to put in this off season, I think the O's could do it. We have won 3 of the last 4 (against the Yankees/Rays, even), and are on pace with Buck to continue the winning trend.

Remember, we also have 7 games against the Tigers this month, so it's not ALL AL East.

Key Question: Can the O's finish with less than 100 losses, therefore going 11-13 or better in September/October?

I haven't look at the schedule, but if they keep pitching like they are I have no doubts they will finish with less than 100 losses.

UPDATED:

After a big extra innings win tonight back in Baltimore over the Jays, here are some updated stats regarding our record:

Orioles are now 11-2 in series openers under Buck.

The Birds need to finish 7-11 or better to avoid 100 losses this year, which includes the final 4 game set at home against the Tigers.

They also need to finish 9-9 or better in order to beat their record out from last year, a feat that up until the Buck era would have been laughed at by any proposing the idea.

Breakdown of remaining 18 games:

2 vs. Blue Jays
Off day
3 vs. Yankees
3 @ Red Sox
Off day
3 @ Blue Jays
3 @ Rays
4 vs. Tigers

Thats a tough closing schedule. Id be thrilled with the 9-9, hard to expect more then that with that schedule. It seems ya never know with them now tho, hard to count them out

Tough games are going to be on the road. 9-9 seems reasonable.
