Numbers Never Lie

This blog will be short and sweet.  The Orioles have just come off 10-4 loss to the Florida Marlins.  The Birds record is a Major League worst 19-51 (.271).  At this pace they will go 44-118.  I personally don’t think that will happen.  I think they will win at least 50-65 games.  They’ve got to right?

Now don’t crucify or laugh at me.  I’m doing this just for statistics.  If the Orioles wanted to end the year with a .500 record, (81-81) they would have to go 62-30 over the course of the next 92 games.  That would be a .673 winning percentage.  Not likely huh?

Now if the Orioles want to prevent a disastrous 100 lose season, they must go at least 44-48 over the next 92 games.  That would be a .478 winning percentage.  Now given this team’s recent history of falling apart in the second half of the season, neither scenario is likely.  These guys already seem to be giving up.  With 92 games yet to play, don’t you think somebody would like to avoid a 100 lose season?  But I guess as long as their five digit pay checks don’t bounce, then who cares.  They get paid regardless.
