At 17-40, the Baltimore Orioles have the worst record in baseball. They have won just two of their last 10 games. I don’t even remember the wins. All I remember are the losses … every single day a loss … an endless parade of gloomy, lifeless, uncaring losses, like the endless days of rain that have dumped some 20 inches in our pitiful mushy yard since this pitiful baseball season began.
This mud pond used to be the road to our house. Better bring your swim fins!
Hey, I know the rules. Someone has to have the worst record in baseball. I just wish it wasn’t the O’s.
