Grantland: The 30: When the Road to Failure Comes, Well, on the Road

This week’s four featured teams have all played a lot better in their own friendly confines than they have on the road this season. The plummeting Braves own the biggest home/road split in the National League; the White Sox’s always-leaky defense has looked even worse away from the Cell; the loaded Blue Jays have been on fire since their trade deadline shopping spree but still own a sub-.500 road record; and the Orioles’ road losses have prevented them from making headway in the crowded race for the AL’s second wild-card spot ... and Baltimore manager Buck Showalter has some thoughts about that.
