The Baltimore Orioles entered the All-Star break — baseball’s halfway point — on Sunday with two things:
1) A 28-69 record which is almost, but not quite, the worst record in baseball. (Ummm, thanks, 27-68 Royals?), and
2) Shortstop Manny Machado, a starting All-Star and one of the best players in the game.
The Orioles leave the All-Star break with just one thing. Almost, but not quite, the worst record in baseball.
Some things that might be helpful for you to know, should your team ever end up being as awfuliciously bad as the Orioles are this season.
