It wasn't even embarassing. It was just funny. I'm not old enough to remember the Orioles losing to the Rangers 26-7 so I'm glad I got to see them lose to Texas 30-3. You get pissed off when your team loses 15-3. When the other team scores twice that many, you just appreciate seeing a little bit of history.

Danny Cab is not inconsistent any longer. He's just consistently bad. Brian Burres had inexplicably not pitched for nine days and had less than zero stuff tonight. He needed to eat up some innings after coming in with none out in the sixth, but he couldn't even finish that inning. By the time Rob Bell came into the game, it was well out of hand, but he and Paul Shuey combined to give up 16 ER over the final 3 1/3 innings. Bell now has an ERA above 6.00. Shuey is now above 9.00. Since I love to look at the positive, you'd have to think that the disgusting performance by these two tonight earned them a ticket out of Baltimore.
