The Baltimore Orioles might not necessarily have the greatest record in the world over the past decade plus. However at least now they’ll look better win or lose. Changes to the Orioles’ uniforms were unveiled yesterday 8on orioles.com, and speaking for myself I think they look great. In effect there’s no change to the traditional home uniform, which will remain white with orange numbering and lettering (other than the fact that all versions of the Oriole uniform will have a patch on the right sleeve commemorating the 20th anniversary of Oriole Park at Camden Yards). The road uniform will also effectively be the same aside from the fact that the script BALTIMORE writing is now more level as opposed to tailing off. The Birds will also bring back the orange in-game jerseys, which haven’t been seen since 1992. The writing and numbers on the orange jerseys will be black. According to masnsports.com’s Roch Kubatko, the plan at the moment is for the O’s to wear the orange jerseys for Satu...

Hey now, the O’s debuted their new/old uniforms today:
The Orioles unveiled several uniform changes for 2012 on Tuesday morning, including the cartoon bird — a revamped combination of several older versions that will be on team hats for both home and road games — and a return of the orange jersey for the first time since 1992.
In all my days I’ve never heard anyone speak...
Alfredo Simon was acquitted of an involuntary murder charge in the Dominican Republic.As you probably remember, Simon was accused of shooting a man during a New Year's Eve celebration about 11 months ago. At the time, I thought that was the last we would see of Simon in an Oriole uniform. Evidently, I was wrong as he appeared in 23 games for Baltimore in 2011 (including 16 starts...
Continuing with the retro-themed offseason the Orioles started with the reintroduction of the cartoon bird, news has leaked that the team plans to erect six statues in the picnic area above the left-center field bullpen.
The statues will be of their six Hall of Famers — manager Earl Weaver, pitcher Jim Palmer, first baseman Eddie Murray, third baseman Brooks Robinson, outfielder...
Growing up, I was a big Cal Ripken, Jr. fan (and, thus, a Baltimore Orioles fan). This may not be all that odd, considering how immensely popular he became in the 1990s, but there are two things worth noting: 1) I grew up in central California, far away from any other Orioles fan and 2) this was the late-1980s, when Ripken was much less of a national name and the Orioles were really...
While the Baltimore Orioles have been one of the most atrocious teams in baseball for the past decade, they are finally making a splash that is newsworthy.
The Orioles have decided to bring back their legendary cartoon bird logo and the halloween-esque orange jerseys that made them famous.
At least the Orioles are attempting to embrace the cartoon imagery that is placed upon...
To say I was not a fan of the Vlad Guerrero signing is probably an understatement. It was pretty bad at the time, and actually managed to turn out even worse than I had expected (but he had a track-record!):
In an offseason that has already featured a facepalming general manager search and is not going to feature Prince Fielder, Albert Pujols, C.J. Wilson, or any one of relevance, the Baltimore Orioles introduced their new uniforms and reintroduced the cartoon bird, kind of like a “we’re sorry” for what has, and is going to, happen in these next three months.
At 9:30 this AM...

Yesterday morning, the Baltimore Orioles unveiled their talked about uniform changes to the public.
Overall, I like what they have done and all the jerseys include an additional patch celebrating the 20th birthday of Camden Yards. Plus, some the changes harks back to some nostalgia -- which is badly needed considering the state of the team right now....
The Orioles are bringing back the cartoon bird logo on their hats.
The Baltimore Orioles are going retro in 2012, bringing back the cartoon bird for their caps as part of a uniform change for the upcoming season.
The Orioles are going back to cartoon bird caps. I must admit, the Orioles cartoon bird always reminded me of Woody Woodpecker.
