It's a question that wasn't posed Wednesday, mostly because it can't be answered.

After a 5-1 loss to the Boston Red Sox at Camden Yards dropped the Orioles to 19-48 and gave them their third seven-game losing streak this year — their second such skid in a 16-game span — just how bad can it get for the Orioles this year?
