Even Gary Thorne is getting frustrated with the Orioles

With a loss to the Tigers on Saturday, the Orioles lost their 100th game of the season. It’s their second consecutive season with triple-digit losses, and their third straight losing season. The Orioles are frustrating to watch if you’re a fan, but even broadcaster Gary Thorne sounds fed up with the lack of quality baseball.

In the first inning of Tuesday night’s game against the Blue Jays, Lourdes Gurriel Jr. hit a foul pop-up. Catcher Chance Sisco and third baseman Rio Ruiz converged on the ball. Ruiz did not call off Cisco. As a result, Cisco continued to pursue the pop-up but both players tried not to collide into each other and the ball dropped onto the ground, giving Gurriel new life.

Following the play, a frustrated Thorne said, “And there again, that can’t happen. 12 games left in the year and you still haven’t decided that a third baseman calls off the catcher? For the love of gracious, come on!”

Meanwhile, Jon Miller has to be thinking that alienating Peter Angelos has to have been one of the best decisions of his broadcasting career….
