Roch around the clock


The Kickoff

May 10, 2006|By ROCH KUBATKO

While going 0-5 on the road trip, the Orioles batted .200 with 12 walks - eight of them coming in Sunday's loss - a .261 on-base percentage and a .312 slugging percentage.

Their starting pitchers posted a 10.17 ERA.

I don't recommend it.

The Orioles have lost nine of 10 away from Camden Yards. Seriously, this place is dead. There were more people in the waiting room at my dentist's office. I didn't know the Orioles were holding a come-as-your-favorite-empty-chair promotion.

The "charge" call has been replaced with the sound of crickets chirping.

I just saw some tumbleweed roll across home plate. Is that normal?

The ushers are so bored, they're throwing each other out.
