With Sunday’s loss, the Orioles have a Major League-worst 50 losses and are the only team in baseball without at least 25 wins.
Last season, it took them 90 games to lose their 50th contest, which came on July 18. In ’08 it took them 98 games –until July 21 — to hit that mark.
This year’s Orioles are right on pace with the ’62 Mets, who dropped to 19-50 and went on to lose 120 games that season. Yes, that’s right. The Orioles aren’t just bad. They could be historically bad.
