baseball – Baltimore Orioles 2009 Recap

October 26, 2009


baseball…Emmy Nominations

The Baltimore Orioles have been the small fish in the big pond for many years now in the American League East. At one point during the 2009 season the Orioles were leading the division – that was an ancient memory by seasons end. The Orioles finished the 2009 season with a 64-98 record for last place.

The Red Sox had early success against the Yankee beating them their first 8 meetings. The Red Sox couldn’t sustain any long term success despite their outstanding record – the Yankees got hot and stayed hot all season long. David Ortiz struggled all season and never found his “Big Papi” mojo.

Playing the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox potentially 19 times each per year has taken its toll on the Orioles. The Orioles are typically good starters but fade fast as the season progresses. Only one pitcher on the Orioles starting staff had 10 wins and that was Jeremy Guthrie – but he also had 17 losses. When the ace of a pitching staff has 7 more losses then wins with an ERA over 5.00 – the team won’t win many games and the Orioles didn’t.

Quality pitching needs to be a high priority for the Orioles. The team leader in wins went 10-17 – not what someone would call a Cy Young candidate.

The Tampa Bay Rays went many seasons without winning and in just one year went to the World Series in 2008. The Orioles are in a very long slump they need to get out fo very quickly before they enter Pittsburgh Pirate/Kansas City Royal territory.

We have learned in years past spending the most money doesn’t win championships – take the New York Yankees this decade. 2010 should be a better year for the Orioles – but their past indicated if it is it won’t be much better. If The Tamp bay Rays can make a world Series run there is no reason the Baltimore Orioles can’t some season in the future
