    Why you are so frustrated with Orioles this year

    Want to know why you are so frustrated with this year's team despite the fact they are still in the wild card hunt? Is it because you have become spoiled from last year's magical club? Is it because you are a bad fan who doesn't like to lose? Probably not!

    It's probably because the Orioles have baseball's worst record in one-run games this season, at 16-26 (.381). They have blown 42 leads that led to losses.

    That's 42 games they led in that they eventually lost. The bullpen of course has been the main culprit but the starter's have a penchant for coughing leads back up as well.

    This year's squad is the anti-2012 club. They find a way to snatch defeat out of the jaws of victory.
