If you paid close attention to the Orioles' 6-0 loss to the Mariners on Monday night, you understand why many people become armchair managers. And why so many others consider the job a no-win proposition that can endanger one's emotional, and occupational, stability.For six innings the teams combined to put 19 runners on base without scoring a run. Twice the Mariners had the bases loaded with less than two outs. Three times the Orioles had their leadoff hitter on, including the first inning, when the first two batters reached safely.

Sage advice to Orioles from second-grade pupilsThe Orioles, and especially Armando Benitez, acted like total idiots. It was because they were frustrated. They were wrong because they shouldn't blame others and hurt them. It's a bad thing to do. I just have to admit, the Yankees are pretty good.When you're frustrated, keep practicing, punch a pillow, wash your face.Michael IngberOwings MillsArmando Benitez shouldn't have thrown the ball at Tino Martinez just because the hitter before Mr. Martinez hit a home run. In my school, we learn that when you get frustrated, not to blame anyone else.
