We don’t know a lot about Baltimore Orioles infielder Robert Andino, but we do know he’s not real happy to be in Baltimore. Just take a look at the photo above.

Andino came to the O’s in 2009, after spending the first four seasons of his big-league career with the Marlins. In 2010 he was obviously still a pretty happy-go-lucky kid. In 2011, he was still kinda happy. But in 2012, Andino just looks beaten down and stressed out. It also looks like he lost a considerable amount of weight. Apparently, that’s the toll playing for the Orioles takes on one’s spirit.

Andino has obviously settled in for another losing season in Baltimore. The team hasn’t had a winning season since 1998, were 69-93 in 2011 and, oh, they play in the toughest division in baseball. For his part, Andino hasn’t done much to help Baltimore’s fortunes.

He’s hitting only .256 in his four seasons with the team.

Robert Andino’s face perfectly sums up what it’s like playing for the Orioles

I’m guessing next year’s picture will feature Andino in the fetal position, sobbing uncontrollably. If you thought being a fan of the Orioles was a tough gig, just look what happens when you actually play for them.  Notice how the joy gets sucked out of O’s second baseman Robert Andino’s face with each passing year?  It’s like one of those “before and after” shots...

Andino says he wasn't tipping pitches vs Yankees

Dylan Bundy: Too Good For A-Ball

Last week, I missed out on Dylan Bundy’s pro debut, as I just couldn’t make the two hour drive to Asheville work with my schedule. But, tonight, Bundy was even closer, pitching just over an hour away in Kannapolis, and I wasn’t going to miss him twice in a span of six days. So, I jumped down I-85 and took in a game with the other 100 or so people who decided to brave the...

The Dugout Opening Days ’12: Baltimore Orioles

He’s not technically a Baltimore Oriole anymore, but when the O’s disassociate themselves from you you’re an Oriole until proven otherwise. From an AP report: SANTO DOMINGO, Dominican Republic (AP) Former major leaguer Vladimir Guerrero said he has surrendered to police after authorities contend he attacked a police officer in a disco. Guerrero denied being part of an attack...

Wei-Yin Chen's First Start For The O's

I didn't get a chance to see Wei-Yin Chen make his Major League debut yesterday - I got home for the bottom of the 9th, so at least I was treated to the extra-innings loss - but I've heard some complementary things about it. Chen's line on the night: 5.2 IP, 7 H, 4 R (2 ER - thanks Mark Reynolds), 1 BB, 6 K, 1 HR (to Derek Jeter, leading off the game). The strike-out...

Chen Has Decent Debut; Orioles Lose Close One Late Against the Yankees...

Last night, the Baltimore Orioles played their longest game of the season – 12 innings – and lost to the New York Yankees, 5-4. The Orioles have lost two in a row. They blew opportunity after opportunity on Tuesday and the Yankees won the game in the top of the eleventh as pinch-hitter Raul Ibanez drilled a ground-rule double to right off reliever Pedro Strop – who took...

Game 6: Orioles 4, Yankees 6

The O's lost game one of this series handily, game two in - not quite heart-breaking - but hard to take fashion, and have to deal with CC Sabathia in game three. The Good: Things did not get off to a particularly auspicious start for Jake Arrieta, as he gave up a two-run homer to the second batter of the game. He settled down after that though, and looked mighty impressive...
