18 of next 22 games vs .500 or below teams

18 of next 22 games vs .500 or below teams

PostPost #1 by Jordan Tuwiner » June 27th, 2012, 11:07 pm

The Orioles have a good opportunity over their next 22 games to make up some ground with the Yankees, especially now that they've lost Sabathia and Pettitte.

4 vs Indians
3 vs Mariners
4 vs Angels (Only the Angels are above .500. Should we just say those are 4 losses right now?)
3 vs Tigers
4 vs Twins
3 vs Indians

This team will prove here whether they are simply treading water, or actually contending.

A good team walks away with a winning record in this span.
A bad team plays .500 or worse here.

Plain and simple, this is where I'll probably draw my conclusion on the 2012 Orioles. As silly as it sounds.

I don't think it's silly at all. I'm pretty much onboard with your thinking TuckerBlair 89.. 8-)

I think the Tigers were overrated coming into the season but I don't think they really are a below average team. I'll be happy with anything over .500 during this stretch.

We'll see if the o's play down to this level or soar right through this stretch. Hoping for the second option. Bad teams can always bring the worst out of you.
