What is it about the Orioles and the latter portion of the season?
You may recall a post from last year which detailed the seemingly annual migration of the Orioles to the bottom rungs of the American League East.
Well, they did it again this year. On the morning of August 18th, the Orioles sat at 60-63, in last place, but only 3.5 games behind the Blue Jays and 15 games out of first. From that point forward, they went 7-30 (and won a game that had been suspended from earlier in the year). This year's collapse rivaled the historic 4-32 finish of 2002.
