As Dave Pinto astutely reminds us: The Sox are 8-9 against the Orioles this season. If that record was 13-4, we'd would be right in the thick of the AL East and Wild Card races.
The idea of the 2010 Red Sox was a good one. Just turned out to be a mismatch with reality.
Hey, what can you do? it happens*.
