Despite starting out hot, sweeping the Minnesota Twins, the Baltimore Orioles followed that series up being swept at home by the New York Yankees. Much like 2011 when the O’s started 6-1, things are sure to return back to normal and the team will settle into last place soon enough; something the players, like (noted Red Sox killer) Robert Andino seems all too aware of.
Looks like 189 losses in the previous two seasons have wiped the smile clean off Andino’s face. There’s no joy in Baltimore. Dude looks like he’s in a hostage video in this year’s photo. It’s like playing for the Orioles has completely destroyed his soul.
