Though I still get offended when folks call the 2012 Orioles “lucky,” it’s hard for me to avoid calling them “unlucky” this season. A year ago, the Birds finished the season with a 29-9 record in games decided by one run. After last night’s loss to the Rays, the O’s are 14-22 in one-run games.
Teams typically finish around .500 in games decided by one-run, I suppose this is the Baseball Gods’ way of evening out 2012.
Thanks a lot, Baseball Gods.
I guess the good news is that statistically speaking the Orioles appear to be a better team in 2013 than in 2012, though their results are about the same.
What the hell am I talking about? It’s all about wins.
