2. What happens if your prediction is wrong, are there any consequences?
If you don't understand hyperbole don't use it, if you want to be held to a literal standard than choose your words more carefully. If a cry of patriotism is the last refuge of the scoundrel, then a cry of context is the last refuge of a failed Rhetorician
The possibility of them going 8-2 is highly unlikely since they've showed no signs or ability of ripping such a win streak with only 2 wins for the season.
They lack the major league talent to do so and 8-2 would require an extended win streak of more than 3 games. If you check...they haven't won 3games yet this year and the upcoming schedule is not real favorable to that happening.
DT should be gone and the team needs a major shake-up. Unfortunately, they lack the bench and the organization the position players to change out the bad pieces.
This may be the worst O's team ever as they are in free-fall right now and lack a major league offense to score enough runs.
There are no moral victories here...you win or you lose.
They're finding new and creative ways every night to lose. They are a bad team with good starting pitching but a horrible offense and a bad bullpen. They have nothing to stop there losing ways until someone busts out on the offense and gets hot and the bullpen figures out how to get the last 9 hitters out!
They may not get much better.
5 of their losses are by 1 run. 11 of their losses are by 3 runs or less.
Let's say they win half of those games 4 runs or less. Their record would be 8-9. If they won 7 of them the record would be 9-8.
Clearly this team is not as bad as their record says. In fact their Pythagorean record is 5-12
