Baltimore Orioles: Do they have the worst outfield in baseball?

Baltimore Orioles
Recently signed outfielder, Colby Rasmus, may be the best defensive outfielder the Baltimore Orioles have. That's a problem. What if I told you that Colby Rasmus is the best defensive outfielder the Baltimore Orioles have? Camden Yards is hitter-friendly, as are the Orioles’ pitchers. It doesn’t help that the American League East is home to four of the top 17...

Baltimore Orioles
Only three weeks remain until the Baltimore Orioles take the field for Opening Day.

Baltimore Orioles

Baltimore Orioles: Biggest surprises of spring training

Baltimore Orioles
Before you say anything, I know. These are just spring training stats and they don’t mean anything. While we shouldn’t place a lot of stock on these numbers, they can be great indicators of how a player is responding to their current situation or how they’re feeling physically. Take Chris Davis, for example. After going 2-13 with seven strikeouts...

Baltimore Orioles: two players that need to rebound In 2018

Baltimore Orioles
It’s amazing how quickly things can change in Major League Baseball. For 14 seasons (1998-2011), fans of the Baltimore Orioles suffered losing seasons, horrendous drafting, and starting rotations that featured pitchers like Jason Johnson as the ace. Over the next five seasons, the Orioles were one of the winningest franchises in all of baseball, winning 93, 85, 96, 81,...

Baltimore Orioles searching for their fifth starting pitcher

Baltimore Orioles
Last season, the Baltimore Orioles starting rotation was atrocious. That’s the nicest way I can put it. The rotation, consisting mainly of Chris Tillman, Ubaldo Jimenez, Jeremy Hellickson, Dylan Bundy, Kevin Gausman, and Wade Miley, finished with an earned run average of 5.70. That mark placed them as one of the worst in the history of Major League Baseball....

On this day in Cubs history: February 2

On this day in 2005, 13 years ago, the Cubs traded away a player that is currently in a controversial discussion. In return, they acquired two average players and a player that retired before spring training began that same year. Sammy Sosa was one of baseball's most compelling hitters at the time where he hit 35 home runs in 126...

Time for the Baltimore Orioles to call it quits

The Baltimore Orioles are a ginormous mess. The problems start at the top with owner Peter Angelos. Angelos’ choices of paranoia have affected the franchise in more ways than one, despite the ability to field a playoff-caliber team. We have seen it again and again. They had a proposed trade for Zach Britton to the Houston Astros at the...
