No surprise that ESPN says it's the worst loss in Baltimore's history....
I wonder what this will do to Gabbard's Run Support numbers...
If he looks at his average, he sure won't be able to complain!
The young Bill James rather famously wrote that he could not find any evidence that certain types of players could consistently hit better in the clutch – he still has not found that evidence. But unlike his younger self, he will not dismiss the idea of clutch hitting. He has been a consultant for the Red Sox for more than a decade, and he has watched David Ortiz deliver so many big hits in so many big moments, and he finds himself unwilling to deny that Big Papi does have an ability in those situations others don’t have.

It was hilarious in an OMG, whattareyagonnado-but-shake-your-head-and-laugh sorta way, but I really felt bad for the poor O's. Then they had to go out and play the second game of the double header, which they also lost.
Poor things. If this is what they've come to, the fans and the team should revolt and storm the team owner's office with torches and pitchforks.
