Oh yes. The Orioles got worked. By a team that's 14 games under .500. What, did Baltimore pick up Grant Balfour? Or were the Rangers hitting off of a tee? Check out this box score, which actually reminds me of some of my softball team's losses this season.
Still, ESPN's Page 2 rates it as only the 8th worst of its Top 100 Sports Beatdowns. I must say I'm a little perturbed that three of the 6 worst beatdowns ever were dished out by the Chicago Bears, but just wait for next year's list, which I predict will include the following:
1. AJ Hawk's beatdown of Rex Grossman - two games, 13.5 sacks
2. The Justice Department's beatdown of Michael Vick
3. My beatdown of Falconio in the next "Tiger Woods isn't the best golfer of all-time" argument
