When you spell O’s, you can’t spell it without the O. The O’s did just that as they were shut out last night by no-name Brett Cecil pitched a heck of a game and he had his cutter working not to mention his 94-96 MPH fastball. The O’s had multiple times to score, once in the second, when they had bases loaded no outs, and once in the seventh with first and second one out. Cecil went 6 strong, yeilding 5 hits that the O’s got and got the W, while Jason Berken 5 2/3 innings with 2 earned runs pitched a heckuva game too. It was mostly a pitchers duel as there was a total of 11 hits. The O’s had five of them. Boo!
That is how Golem feels here in this picture, he is saying lets go O’s you suck! Hey, at least the O’s didn’t go down as hard as the Padres. Ouch! Jonathan Sanchez threw a no hitter against them, as they couldn’t even barely get on base! The only runner came on a Juan Uribe error, and if Uribe wouldn’t have made that error, it would have been a perfect game. C’mon dude, show some man love! Help your pitcher out. Sanchez ranks up there among pitchers with the lowest number of wins to ever throw a no hitter. Sanchez (2-8) in his career before throwing the no-no hopes this will get him on a roll. The cool thing about throwing the no-no, was Sanchez’ dad was there to see him play, and he witnessed the whole thing. After they both shared hugs and a few tears as it was a field of dreams moment. Congrats to Jonathan Sanchez and a hello to the Padres.
Good luck to Sanchez in the future with pitching! He deserves a pat on the back. Back to the O’s now. The O’s have been shut out six times this year, which has led to the downfall of the offense. Here at Birdland, I have found a funny topic to talk about.
Birdland’s thought of the day:
The Birdland thought of the day is, although the O’s stopped Scott Rolen’s hit streak, and didn’t have to face Roy Halladay, and didn’t give up more than two runs, the O’s still lost because the offense shattered under Cecil’s gem.
Many things represent the O’s like
Cheerio’s! Now the official breakfast cereal of the Baltimore Orioles because the O’s put so many zero’s on the board last game. All of those Cheerio’s represent the amount of zero’s on the year the O’s put up.
You didn’t think San DiegO was going to be left out did you? San DiegO (emphasis on the O) represents how many hits and runs they had combined last night. Sanchez just shut them down, including only letting one baserunner on because of Uribe’s error. Sorry Unfinished Business but the Pads are in the cellar, and look to hide there for awhile!
Yes Yankee fans, A-Rod or self proclaimed A-Roid is on my O’s list because the O in A-Roid, stands for 0 commen sense!! How in the world do you expect to go from being a .330 30 steal player to a 50 HR .290 120 RBI hitter in a few years and expect not to get caught. Let’s just try and keep up the good work okay A-Roid? Just try to keep going yard.
Last but definetely not least, is Spongebob on the O’s list. He is on here because he has so many holes, just like the O’s offense. I am sorry but it is true, the O’s can’t go three straight games with their offense in tact. We gotta get this show on the road boys. You better start now! Thanks for all of your time everybody, I will post again soon, please comment!
