Race To The Bottom

You might remember a few years ago when the Baltimore Orioles lost an unfathomable 32 of 36 games to close the season. They haven’t gotten much better. For four years running, the Orioles have found themselves at or near .500 in August, only to collapse down the stretch:

Year   Start   Finish
2005 60-60 10-26
2004 59-59 19-25
2003 57-59 14-32
2002 63-63 4-36

That’s an aggregate “finish? record of 47-119 (.283).
