Rodrigo Lopez, 2004 Fleer Tradition #165

Unlucky number thirteen. I'm not even angry any more. I'm almost beyond discouragement and depression. This is starting to get impressive, in a surreal way. I mean, you almost have to be trying to lose games to actually drop a baker's dozen of them in succession. The freaking Nationals haven't had a losing skid longer than eight games all season. The laughingstock Royals topped out at ten in a row.

The good news? The season will end before the Birds can try for twenty.

When the Orioles are winning again in a few years, the forgotten season of 2009 will serve as the prologue to their return to glory. At least that's the hope.

It's ironic there's a real possibility of Rodrigo Lopez winding up with a World Series ring this year, even though the Phils recently cut ties with him.

I sure hope that 2009 is the "rock bottom" year and not the start of a 100-loss trend.

I wonder what the record is for consecutive losses to end the season. If the O's lose out, they might hold the record for starting and ending a season. :)
