Iggy’s Baltimore Sports Report, August 19, 2016

Ok, I am back from California where I saw the O’s play the Giants (and other lesser family stuff and entertainment), and I just watched preseason game number 1. Generally, you can’t tell too much from preseason, but what I saw from our starters, I didn’t like. Bad offence, and a D that let the Panthers move the ball at will. I can’t even begin to describe what they need right now, but “playmakers” comes to mind.

After spending most of the season in first place, the O’s find themselves fighting to stay in the wild card spot. Inconsistencies all over the place are the cause. The trade deadline brought nothing of significant value. Orioles need to figure out how to score runs when the ball doesn’t go into the stands.

Montreal (2-5) are off to a terrible start, 2nd worst record in the league.

Blast (IPL):
Nothing new to report.

Chesapeake Bayhawks: (Home games at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium)
Bayhawks (8-6) **** the bed at the end of the season, losing to Charlotte 15-13. The end result left them on the short side of a SEVEN way tie for first, missing the playoffs. Ohio plays Denver for the title on Saturday.

Capitals (See website for more details):
Signing and re-signing is underway.

Wizards (See website for more details):
2016-17 season schedule released.

D.C.United (See website for more details):
United (6-8-9) are in 6th place.
