We're not even halfway through 2013 and the Orioles have already lost more one-run games than in all of 2012. Of course, the Orioles were something special last season, winning 93 games and making the playoffs thanks in large part to a 29-9 record in one-run games, giving them the best winning percentage (.763) in MLB history in that situation. Back in spring training, I wrote a blog post about whether their one-run success was sustainable . In the post, I cited historical data compiled by Blake Murphy of Beyond the Box Score.

When Dan Duquette was hired roughly a year ago as the club's executive vice president, the Orioles pointed to his impressive track record in the past with the Montreal Expos and Boston Red Sox. He was in charge of some very good teams - although none went to the World Series. Of course, the Expos in 1994 might have had the season not ended in August due to labor unrest. And Duquette was one of the primary architects of the Red Sox team that twice won world championships after he left.

With possession so precious this time of the year, Kyle Harrison's work in the faceoff circle against Syracuse senior Chris Bickel could prove pivotal. Harrison ranks seventh nationally with a .633 winning percentage, and he gets strong help from Grey Peyser and Lou Braun, who has won 61.3 percent of his 93 attempts. Bickel, who has competed for 339 faceoffs this year, with a winning percentage of .560, could wear down in the second half. Hopkins also does not want to give Syracuse sophomore goalie Jay Pfeifer early confidence.

Through all the Orioles' losing in the past decade-plus, amid all the statistics that accentuate recent baseball futility in Baltimore, there's one fact that seemingly stands alone in provoking utter disbelief: The Orioles' consistently abominable records in recent Augusts and Septembers. How bad has it been? The Orioles' last winning August was in 1997, when they were 18-10, the most recent season in which they had an overall winning record and made the playoffs. Dating to 2000, the Orioles have had no winning Augusts and just one winning September/October (19-13 in 2004)

So now the question is: What kind of nose dive are the Orioles in this time? Is it the same old nose dive of the past 11 years, when they managed a nifty .410 winning percentage (254-368) in August and September? Or is this one somehow different, the sort-of-expected cratering of a team trotting out a lot of young arms and a couple of promising rookie position players while prepping for the future? Go ahead, you decide. Flip a coin if you have to. And do you even care if this nose dive is any different from all the others?

Orioles manager Dave Trembley has made a career out of properly assessing situations. He is considered a talent developer with a prescience to push the right buttons in motivating baseball's varying personalities. So, as he enters the dugout Monday for his second Opening Day as field general of the Orioles, Trembley absolutely, positively knows the score. "Somebody along the line is the front line of this, the infantry, and is going to take the body blows," Trembley said. "Somebody is going to pay the price, just like somebody has paid the price for everything that has come our way in this life and this game."

In a year that has been highlighted by hard play, inspired comebacks and clubhouse unity, the Orioles find themselves in a familiar position as the season approaches its final month. They are again outside the playoff race, buried deep in the American League East standings. They've lost seven of nine and yet again have been reduced to the role of hopeful spoilers facing a four-week parade of postseason contenders. "It gets hard sometimes, yeah. We'd be lying if we said it didn't," Orioles second baseman Brian Roberts said.

It doesn't take a rocket scientist to determine that Mike PTC Mussina wasted no time going to the head of the pitching class.What may not be understood is the quality of the company he's keeping. Three years doesn't make a career, but it's long enough to provide a good indication.Mussina has moved past Toronto right-hander Juan Guzman to claim the best winning percentage among active pitchers. His 49-20 record works to a .710 percentage (Guzman is 47-20, .701).However, what Mussina's numbers don't easily relate is his standing on the all-time list.

The remarkable thing about the goalie controversy on the Maryland men's lacrosse team is that there's hardly a controversy. Contrary to popular belief, junior Jason Carter and sophomore Brian Phipps are comfortable about the Terps' plan of playing each keeper for a half. The two share notes on opposing players before and during games and openly root for each other. "Everyone wants to play," Phipps said. "At the same time, it's fun to cheer on your teammates. When halftime comes, you're like, `OK, my job's done.
