So I dont know if a lot of you remember but way back I said that the Bailtmore Orioles were going to be something short of awesome this year. A huge year because of the veteran managing skills of Buck " Go Fuck your self Derek Jeter" Showalter and their big off season moves getting Vald, Mark Reynold and Derek Lee to add to a good young out field core. But to my dismay they sucked ass this whole season. 21 games under .500 and possibly the worst record in the majors.
I kinda feel somewhat responsable. I talked them up before the Phantom spotlight was a real thing. So hopefully this will be some sort of late season boost. But lets be real the O's have disappointed everyone but people in Maryland do not really care because all they do is crab cakes and football.
The O's used to be a good team from the late 70's to early 90's but after that bastard Jeffery Maier or what ever. So the O's have had the worst luck with everything they have done. Their luck is so bad that every time some one mentions the O's they talk about how bad their luck is . I am gonna be honest it took me a while to word that last sentence. But whatever they had the best off season of really any team getting a former Ace for cheap 4 guys who have hit over 20 home runs in a season multiple times and signed a manager who is hard nosed and wants to fuck the Yankees every chance. Dream season on the way right?
Well, wrong phuckers . Everything went awfully wrong. Now if you're an O's fan you can try to say it hasn't been that bad . Then you my idiot friend have been watching too much of Ken Burns extra innings. Oh yo check that shit out its pretty awesome. Back to the point the Ace Justin Duchcerer ( not the right spelling) has been hurt since basically the day he signed the contract. Mark Reynolds has struck out a thousand times before the All Star game, They just traded off Derek Lee and JJ and Vlad have had a mediocre season at best. The young pitchers haven't had a strong go of it since all of them except for Jeremy Guthrie who has the illest spikes in the whole professional game have been sent down to triple-A. Their second basemen have been a huge joke. Brian Roberts is done as a O' they should have traded him in the off season to the Cubs and get some value out of the guy because now you'll be lucky to get a pitcher who can throw like MD So it looks like another under .500 losing season for the orange birds.
That brings me to Buck Showalter. Come on man where is the fight. Look at Cincy last
year, pitts this year they had very little star talent but they have so much fight in them because of the dude at the helm. Young teams feed off fire , veteran teams feed off fire. Hell you tell those aging sacks of shit that this is their last stop before playing for Newark Bears. Buck I thought you were the guy to do it . But I guess there is always next year , I have said that phrase so much that it has lost its gusto. Just like Red bull and the charms of Brian Wilson ( the Beach boys lead singer not the clown out in San Fran). Fucking Buck Showalter making me look like a damn fool.
