Information about the song

Slow fastballs and hanging curves
That's what life is on the Birds
Fans are booing in the night
While a line drive rises on an endless flight

Hoo-hoo, Pitching Problems.
Down in Baltimore
Hoo-hoo, Pitching Problems.
The team is flat on the floor.

Rocky Coppinger makes a start
Oriole fans have broken hearts
Linton in relief again
And Ray Miller's going crazy with his leaky pen.

Hoo-hoo, Pitching Problems.
Down in Baltimore
Hoo-hoo, Pitching Problems.
The team is flat on the floor.

(Guitar interlude followed by falsetto ah-ahs)

I know you like Mussina,
But Erickson's a dreamer
And Orosco's simply gettin' old
There's a story gettin' warmer
They're bringin' back Jim Palmer
How much longer till the season simply turns stone cold

Hoo-hoo, Pitching Problems.
Down in Baltimore
Hoo-hoo, Pitching Problems.
The team is flat on the floor.

May 4, 1999: Four weeks into the 1999 season, the Baltimore Orioles had won seven games. Mike Mussina won four of them. The pitching staff had a combined ERA of 6.19. And this is one of the teams with a huge payroll. How much longer can Ray Miller keep his job.
