The Orioles' manager was fired this afternoon, as they all have been since we haven't had a winning season since 1997. We have had and do have some very talented players interspersed through the years, just not a congruent bunch. We have good starting pitchers and no closers, or we have great closers and starters that can't get past the 5th inning. We have had two good hiters in the lineup and the rest of them might as well have been me (imagine that!) . . . the list goes on and on; the problem with the Orioles is ownership. Angelos is a dud. He always has been. He thinks adding Sammy Sosa to the line up makes for a winning team. Only after we bought Sosa we had no money left for any other players. Give me a break.
It's been hard to be an Orioles fan ever since Cal moved to third base. I love 'em and am a die-hard fan, but it's hard.
Angelos has to go. He sucks.
