Poll: Orioles wins after 30 games

Through six games, the Orioles are 1-5 this season.

They'll head to the West Coast after three games against the Tampa Bay Rays at Camden Yards. Don't forget they also have to play 12 straight games against the Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees.

So, with that knowledge, how many wins will the Orioles have after 30 games?

Vote in the poll and feel free to share your comments below.

they will get it going and EVERYONe including theirseles will be SURPRIZED.

It is going to get real ugly real fast! Remember the year Cal Ripken Sr. managed for what - 25 games or so? What did we win then? This is going to be a repeat I am afraid. POOR ORIOLES - POOR FANS! SIGGGGHHHH!!!

We have the Ravens.
They know how to win.

Lets face it, the O's are a terrible team. The veterans on the team are mostly has beens and the youngsters ( Except Weiters) are immature high strung kids who couldnt pitch or hit in the clutch even if they were up against their mothers. For 12 straight years they have been horrible, make room for year # 13. This is a 60-102 team.

Cal, Sr., managed 1987 and six games into 1988. Frank got the other 15 in a row.

they are not this bad! 12-18 after 30 games is a reasonable prediction. They don't want to win for Trembly - PERIOD.

The Orioles are like a Rolls Royce.......chauffeured by a hobo.

I'm in the very slight majority that said 10-12 wins. Assuming either I'm right or the people who said less than 10 are right, does Trembley have his job by May 15?

Without a cleanup hitter and without a proven closer, this team can win 70 and not a game more.
A proven 30 homer, .285 hitter is needed
in the number 4 slot and a proven 25 - 30 saves a year closer is needed on the present roster to get the Orioles to 81 wins or more.
The organization's present formula for
success will work, of course, but why wouldn't it after 20 years!

It is unfortunate that the Orioles are 1 & 5 and last in the division.

I believe Manager T. can win and GM Mc. is continuing to do all they can to win.

To Mr. Mc. I do not believe Manager T. should be blamed. He appears to be a good baseball man.

It can get frustrating when the team has not seen a winning season in more that 10 years.

I wish them success.

Is this a trick question??

As a fan, investing money in tickets or merchandise isn't as hard anymore as investing personal time in watching the team repeat the same errors, game after game, year after year.

Will Nick keep up his 243 walk pace? throw in 135 Ks and that'll have to be some kind of record for 'number of times not putting ball in play' for a season

10 wins in the next 24 games will make them 11-19 at the 30 game mark.

I love it...37% think the Orioles are the worst team in baseball, one of the worst in history. 42% just think they stink.


16 people voted 20 or more. These 16 people must be smoking something amazing. I want some.

love the comment about the
hobo, but you had it backwards.,

the orioles are the hobo and
they are chauffered by peter
angelos a rolls royce owner
with a peanut budget....

let's pick up some more
unknown free agents, some
questionable pitching free
agents, let's sit our talent
in aaa forever and let these
bums keep losing. i turn
a profit who cares????

is it football season yet? this team will lose 95-100 games.

FEWER than 10 wins. One would think a newspaper would use correct grammar.

I have been an O's fan since 1954. It was one thing in those early years to tolerate losing seasons because they kept getting better. In 10 years, they fought the Bronx Bombers right up to the end, eventually getting to the big dance a few seasons later. Then, the had the best MLB record over a 25 year span. This owner doesn't get it...and never will. I live in Michigan. GO TIGERS!!!

Jim, sorry to burst your bubble.. but the only win we have this year came from one of those "immature high strung kids who couldnt pitch."
