As bad as the Orioles are, it’s still worth going to Camden Yards

The Orioles may not be anything special to watch, but this month is still your last chance to see them...and maybe pick up some free stuff.

It hasn’t been pretty and I won’t sugarcoat it; we all know how the Orioles’ season has gone so far. I’ve watched this team more nights than I’d care to admit, and it has been dreadful to say the least. But as much as the now 43-107 Orioles suck the soul out of every fan watching at home on a nightly basis, there is one thing the team cannot...

Orioles prospect season in review: Zac Lowther

Zac Lowther had a heck of a 2018, dominating both low-A and high-A on his way to winning the Orioles minor league pitcher of the year award.

The Orioles have a number of intriguing young pitchers in their minor league system, but Zac Lowther is probably my favorite of all. He’s a lefty, and I like lefties. Also he wears glasses and I love baseball players in glasses. Is this a silly reason to like one prospect over another? Probably. But don’t worry, there are other good reasons to be a...

Orioles will wear Braille lettering on their jerseys for Tuesday’s game

Bill Sciannella is just like thousands of Orioles fans. He loves to come to the ballpark to cheer for his favorite team. But, there’s something different about the Columbia resident. He can’t see the action on the field. Sciannella is blind, and has been a rabid baseball fan his entire life, first rooting for the Washington Senators as a child in Silver Spring, and after the Senators abandoned the Nation’s Capital following the 1971 season, he transferred his allegiance to the...

Tuesday Bird Droppings: Where the 1988 Orioles have company

The Orioles tied the franchise record for losses with their 107th defeat last night. And they have two weeks to rack up more.

Good morning, Camden Chatters.

I’ll start with the good news. As I noted yesterday, the Orioles won’t end up with the worst record in baseball history.

Now for the bad news: barring a miracle, they will end up with the worst record in Orioles history.

The O’s lost their 107th game last night, getting shut out for the 15th time this year in a dismal 5-0 defeat....

Bundy looks to find groove vs. Blue Jays

Orioles equal franchise record with 107th loss

Orioles fans who lived through the 0-21 start and the resulting 107 losses in 1988 were probably certain they’d never see anything that bad from this franchise again. Thirty years later, the Orioles lost for the 107th time with 12 games still to play in this dreadful season. Their 5-0 loss to the Toronto Blue Jays on Monday night was remarkable only because manager Buck Showalter resorted to using an “opener,” a reliever who wasn’t going to pitch more than two or three innings. Evan...

Chris Davis calls Orioles’ mounting losses ’embarrassing’

The Baltimore Orioles’ historically bad season has resulted in frustration levels rising among players and fans, and at least one player has outright admitted embarrassment.Baltimore tied a franchise record on Monday with loss No. 107 on the season (the 1988 Orioles also lost 107 games). With 12 games remaining, a nightmare of a season will soon be over, and the club can begin to focus on how return to winning ways.Following Monday’s game, first baseman Chris Davis was asked about the...

Orioles lose 5-0 to Blue Jays in 15th shutout of season

The Orioles lost their 107th game of season, matching the highest loss total in team history. And they have 12 games to go.

Well, whaddya know, the Orioles lost again! There are some seasons when individual losses are easily remembered. Maybe because of something unusual that happened in the game, or because it was particularly heartbreaking.

I have to say that when the 2018 season mercifully comes to an end, I don’t know if I’ll recall the specific details of any one loss. There are so...

Monday evening game thread: vs Blue Jays, 7:05 p.m.

Are you ready for some Orioles baseball?

It’s no surprise to anyone that the Orioles are a mess. This afternoon it has been on full display as they put out three different lineups. Let’s hope the one I post here is the same one they use. The first iteration had our usual suspects mostly in the same lineup spots, but with Tim Beckham DH’ing with Jonathan Villar and Breyvic Valera playing shortstop and second base, respectively.

The second lineup, released not long after, saw Valera...

Tonight's starter Evan Phillips on improvements he made at Triple-A

Right-hander Evan Phillips last pitched in a game for the Orioles on Aug. 15. He last pitched in a game for anybody on Sept. 2 when he threw a scoreless inning with two strikeouts for Triple-A Norfolk. Tonight he's the starting pitcher for the Orioles against Toronto. We'll see how ... Read More

Dan Duquette wants to remain with Orioles through rebuild

There’s little certainty regarding the future outlook among Orioles leadership, with both general manager Dan Duquette and manager Buck Showalter in the final few weeks of their contracts. Duquette said last night on 105.7 FM The Fan that he’s not sure what the future holds but expressed a desire to remain with the O’s throughout their rebuild and beyond (via Steve Melewski of MASNsports.com). “My heart’s here,” said Duquette. “And I’m happy to lead the rebuild and looking...

What has September taught us about the future of the Orioles?

The team has “gotten a look at” a lot of players. But are they any better off for 2019 and beyond?

In a season full of terrible months, September is quite likely to be the absolute worst for the Baltimore Orioles. This group has just three wins since August ended and, with a gauntlet of some of the league’s toughest teams ahead of them, it wouldn’t be overly surprising to see them lose nearly all of their remaining games. Even still, there has been some modicum of value in this awful...

Orioles-Blue Jays series preview: The final series between AL East bottom dwellers

The Blue Jays come to Camden Yards for a three game series that will not mean much.

It was just two years ago that the Orioles and Blue Jays were on their respective ways to meeting each other in the wild card game. Now both teams are playing out the string on bad seasons and are in rebuilding mode. The Toronto Blue Jays make their final trip to Camden Yards to begin a three-game series tonight at 7:05.

The Orioles just lost two of three games to the Chicago White Sox and have lost eight of...
