Since it came up in the comments of this morning's post, I thought it'd be fun to take a look at just how awful Baltimore has been against Boston since the unbalanced schedule was introduced in 2001:
Two-and-sixteen last season. That is absolutely and utterly shameful.
Additionally, the Orioles have had exactly one winning campaign against the Red Sox in the last nine years, and even during that year they still lost to Boston nine times. I wonder if any other team in Major League Baseball sports a winning percentage against another team over the past nine seasons that is worse than .353?
Basically, if you are the Red Sox you can pretty much expect that Baltimore will contribute to more than 10% of your season victory total in any given year (and 17% last year!). Thank you, Orioles.
