Tejada, Jones look forward
Fresh off a three-game sweep in Toronto the Orioles are 21 games under .500 and have lost 10 of their last 11 games. And the schedule doesn’t get any easier, as the Orioles next nine games are against the Yankees and the Red Sox.
“It was a bad month,” Miguel Tejada said. “Tuesday we’re going to start another month and we have to do it from there. It’s a new month. We have the perfect team to start playing good against, the Yankees and Boston, and the Yankees again and the Mets. That’s going to be the start of us playing good again.”
“We just have to play better baseball. [Manager Dave Trembley is] doing the best he can to get us to play better baseball. I know they always blame the manager, but I think we as players, we have to start to pick it up.”
Said Adam Jones: “We have a good day off tomorrow. I hope it’s nice weather. Guys can go out and enjoy New York, watch a play, get our minds off baseball and come back against the Yankees.”
