"Ignore" is your friend.
But I am a realist. And I know it will take a lot to break a losing trend of 14 years. A lot has to go your way. I just hope we don't turn into the same team we've been the last 14 years when we hit a rough stretch.
This is a poorly constructed team with below average ability. It's great to watch them win more than they lose but its still April.
How can a team that hasn't been near .500 in over a decade have only 3 players under the age of 26? Only 8 players drafted by the team? Since Wieters the O's haven't added a drafted everyday player of quality to the team.
They have little in the way of farm talent after Andy MacPhail left, who was supposed to have a free hand and World Series team building experience.
After years of losing I'm more interested in the Orioles building a franchise to be competitive over the next decade then I am in watching a mediocre team, at best, catch lightening in a bottle.
If you disagree with the substance of what I said, please post that information. We can have a conversation among O's fans and baseball fans about the team.
