UGH- Getting Swept at Home Is Horrible

The Tigers wrapped up their three game sweep of the O's today at Camden Yards and it was garbage. After having won five games in a row last week, the Birds have now dropped four straight at home. Now I know the Tigers are the best team in the A.L. (and it showed), but the Orioles should have at least won Tuesday's game if not for the shocking implosion of possibly not-the-closer-anymore, Tommy Hunter.

I think I feel about this sweep the way Mike DeJean felt about getting this picture taken, just not in the mood, ya know? Or maybe it was just how Mike felt about his time with the Orioles, during which he was 0-5 with a 6.13 ERA over 37 games in the first half of the 2004 season. He was traded to the Mets for Karim Garcia on July 19, 2004 to mercifully end his time with the O's.

Now Mike did pitch 565 MLB games over ten seasons for five teams, but those 37 games for the O's were his only time in the American League. The National League was much more kind to him, where he accrued a 30-28 record and a 4.18 ERA.
