What a train wreck.

What is going on?
Are there any signs of life in the Oriole clubhouse?
It’s a building season. I know. But the way the Birds are losing makes the situation even more frustrating.
Dave Trembley is clearly upset, but he doesn’t really seem to have an answer for the problem
Baltimore hasn’t scored more than 4 runs in a game since they put up 7 against Detroit on May 29. They’ve scored just 19 runs in the past 11 games (1.72 per game).
Melvin Mora hasn’t had an RBI in 24 games and hasn’t homered in 30 games.
In June the O’s have been outscored 53-19 and have been shut out twice.
O’s Averages in June:
Brian Roberts: .210
Adam Jones: .242
Nick Markakis: .219
Aubrey Huff: .185
Melvin Mora: .182
Luke Scott: .242
Matt Wieters: .250
Robert Andino: .250
Nolan Reimold: .280
That pretty much says it all.
The O’s have to turn things around. It’s gotten to the point where the Birds need to do anything to change things up. Bend Sherrill’s brim, shave Luke Scott’s head, pull the socks up — change something.
