What a great message, DRIVE! I try to think about those things, but you really brought it home with your statistics. I didn't realize how close the Team is to a .500 average. If they could end the season above .500, I'd be very happy emoticon

Yes, right now our boys are in last place in the AL East... but there is a lot of good stuff going on with the O's too that we need to look at to keep our perspective:

1) We're at .455, just a hair under .500 which is a pretty darn good place to be all things considered.

2) We're doing better than Kansas City, Cleveland, Oakland, Washington, Pittsburgh, Arizona and San Diego!

3) Our batting average is .267! Better than first place Boston's by .002, not much, but still BETTER!
Also better than Detroit who lead the AL Central.
Also better than Philadelphia who lead the NL East.

4) .267 puts us tied for the 8th spot in all of MLB.

5) Our ERA at 4.94 isn't the worst in the major league.... Cleveland has the worst :-)

And #6! We still have at least 74 more games to play! And do I say, then we enter Post Season? I can feel it, October ball at the Yard!

Let's Go O's!
