Every year, fans hope for the best with the Baltimore Orioles. For the last fourteen years, they have finished below .500 and well out of playoff contention.
More than likely, the Orioles will have a fifteenth consecutive losing season. With that being said, a lot of fans are frustrated by the poor record of Baltimore’s baseball team and frankly want a new owner.
Yesterday, 106.7 the Fan, a radio station in Washington, reported that the Orioles are ‘quietly discussing a sale’, according to the Baltimore Sun.
The Baltimore Sports Report has more on the rumor (a tip of the cap to them), as I read it first on their site yesterday.
However, later on that day, the Orioles refuted news of a potential sale.

Well, the Orioles situation with South Korea just got more, well Orioles.
Because honestly, the only other two franchises this could happen to either the Pirates, or the Mets.
Anyway, the MLB announced today that it will step in and void Kim’s contract. The Orioles will still be able to sign Kim at a later date. Basically, this move has to be done because relations between the...
Spring Training opens up in Sarasota on Saturday, and I would not say that I’m terribly excited at the team’s prospects right now.
As it is every year, to win, you have to have pitching. I am not sure the Orioles have an abundance of it right now. In fact, I don’t know what to think. One question I have on my mind is this: who in the world starts on Opening Day?
THe Orioles avoided arbitration and came to terms with CF Adam Jones.
Major League Baseball will void the Baltimore Orioles' signing of 17-year-old Korean pitcher Seong-Min Kim due to a breach in protocol, MLB.com has confirmed.
