Found September 07, 2012 on The Fantasy Fix:
Hopefully you held on to Mark Reynolds. His batting average hovered around .200 all year and his power wasn't enough to make up for it, so many fantasy owners ditched him. It appeared the Orioles did too when Manny Machado was recalled last month, but it turns out Reynolds got a new life at first base. The Baltimore slugger hit two more homers and scored twice while driving in three runs against New York. That's eight homers and 16 RBIs in eight days, the kind of hot streak that can move a fantasy team up a spot or two in the standings if you held on to him. If by chance he's still available in your league, go get him. All the Orioles are hot these days as Adam Jones and Matt Wieters both had two hits including a homer. Curtis Granderson began to break out of his slump with two hits while Ichiro had three for New York. It was a good day to play Charlie Blackmon. Good news is, if you had him, you played him.It was a light five-game night, so you could play everyone on yo...

Buck Showalter: AL Manager of the Year

Buck Is Hands Down the AL Manager Of The Year   There were rumors and questions around the sports world when Buck Showalter took the job in Baltimore. Why would he do that? He had a good job at ESPN, which he had no reason to leave, especially for a team who had not been relevant past opening day since 1997. If anything, he would have left to coach a team that was close if not...

Baltimore Orioles prove it can be done

Beat the Yankees? Sure, why not. And the Tampa Rays? Yep. Them to. The Baltimore Orioles aren't backing down, and could still win the division. And it's September, not April. We should all take notes. By we, I mean other teams whose executive management teams continues to mismanage their farm system and letting young prospects flee the burning barn.Just a glance over the...

On a day where Cal Ripken is Honored, O's Pull out Thrilling Victory Against the Yankees...

I’m not one to usually read into something more than it actually is, or go into hyperbole; however, I’ll say this about the Baltimore Orioles: this team has grit, is going through one of those ‘magical seasons’, and may be one of destiny. There’s no need to go through what happened last night if you’re a fan of this team. I went to Camden Yards last night with some...

Orioles beat Yankees to move into tie for first

BALTIMORE -- The Baltimore Orioles wasted a five-run lead late in Thursday's series opener against the Yankees, and these are the kind of games Baltimore has lost for many years. But this is a different year. Adam Jones hit a tie-breaking homer to start the eighth, and Mark Reynolds and Chris Davis homered later in the inning as the Orioles rallied for a 10-6 victory over...

Are The Baltimore Orioles The New Sherrifs In Town?

Just a few weeks ago, the Yankees had an 8 game lead over the Orioles and  I would say almost all of us would of assumed that the New York Yankees would be in control of the AL East yet another year and that no one should be worried, but has that now changed? Are The Baltimore Orioles the new sherrifs in town? It might be too early to say all of this, but if you look at the...

The Orioles Blast Past Yankees For A Share Of First Place

It counts even more when you are playing the team you are trying to catch to take over the top spot in the A.L. East. That is exactly whet the Baltimore Orioles were able to do, they chase down the men in pen stripes and now share the top spot in the A.L. East with the New...

On Cal Ripken night, Birds show Yanks who the real bombers are

photo c/o our peeps over at IhateJJRedick It was a magical Thursday night at Oriole Park at Camden Yards. In a game that was the biggest September contest in the stadium since 1997 (until Friday’s game, of course  - they only get bigger at this point), the Orioles jumped out to an early lead, withstood a furious late Yankee comeback, and took the first game of the crucial four...

The Orioles of 2011

We’ve reached Threat Level Midnight. With last night’s victory over the Yankees, the Orioles are now tied with New York American League East lead. Whatever one makes of the Orioles’ chances, this is surprising for pretty much anyone who made a serious attempt at being objective prior to the season. When is the last time a team coming off of a sub-70-win season that got their...
