Reading Between The Seams:
Baltimore Orioles first basemen, Chris Davis, got another opportunity this afternoon putting the reigning MVP, Miguel Cabrera, on notice. Davis continued his home run binge belting out two more home runs Wednesday afternoon at Comerica Park. Chris hit his league leading 25th & 26th home run in a 13-3 route over a stunned Tiger team.
His first home run was a two-run shot in the fourth inning against Rick Porcello and his second two-run shot came against the struggling Jose Valverde in mop up duty in the ninth inning. Davis went 3-5 for the day 2HR, DBL and 5RBI.
Chris Davis has a commanding lead over Prince Fielder at first base for the 2013 All-Star Game by almost a million votes. It will be the first time in his big league career that he gets voted in. Davis actually made a name for himself last season when he hit a career high 33 home runs. If he continues his home run surge this season he will be on pace to smack 58 home runs.
Here’s a look at his big day in Detroit.

Before the 2012 season it was rare for a Baltimore Oriole to be voted into the MLB All-Star Game via fan voting. In fact before last season, the last time an O’s player was selected by fan ballot was 2005, when two Orioles, Brian Roberts and Miguel Tejada, were selected as starters.
That was also the last All-Star Game in which the Orioles had multiple all-stars until last season...

The Baltimore Orioles completed a 13-3 drubbing of the Detroit Tigers yesterday to take 2 out of 3 from the current AL-Central leaders. They did it basically the same way they’ve done it all year: with a homerun heavy offense and clutch pitching out of the bullpen...

Veteran second baseman Brian Roberts may be back on the Baltimore Orioles' major league roster before the All-Star break, after running on the field yesterday to test his surgically repaired hamstring. That's according to Brittany Ghiroli of MLB.com, who wrote that Roberts would also work out during Thursday's off-day in Toronto. Manager Buck Showalter suggested that...

Most of the time, I would expect that professional sports teams would be able to know how to spell current players names but there are times when mistakes can be made.

Our double entendre quote of the year comes from Baltimore Orioles play by play man Gary Thorne when speaking of the upcoming Orioles-Blue Jays series this weekend. The pitching rotation put forward by Toronto is simply the greatest thing in the history of sports...

The Baltimore Orioles have been on quite a run this week, taking two of three from the Detroit Tigers and before that, taking three of four from the rival Boston Red Sox.
In the offseason, a lot of experts doubted that the Orioles could repeat what they did in 2012 this season. So far, they have proven the naysayers wrong.
As of this morning, 73 games into the 2013 season...
J.J. Hardy and Adam Jones homered off Justin Verlander, and Manny Machado added a double and two sparkling plays at third base to lead the Baltimore Orioles to a 5-2 victory over the Detroit Tigers on Tuesday night.
Hardy hit his third homer off Verlander (8-5) this month, connecting for a two-run shot in the fourth inning, and Jones added a three-run drive in the fifth.
After a 5-2 homestand, the Baltimore Orioles started off their six-game road trip in Detroit and ran into a roadblock … a pitcher named Max Scherzer.
The tall righty dominated the Orioles last night in the motor city and helped the Tigers earn a 5-1 victory.
Although Chris Davis hit his league leading 24th home run in the second inning, the Baltimore offense was stymied...
I'm sorry, but Chris Davis is the best hitter in baseball, and watching him play is incredible. This is a legitimately good team.
Tweet The Baltimore Orioles began a three-game series with the Detroit Tigers Monday, meaning two of the American League’s most feared hitters this year would be on display at Comerica Park. Tigers third baseman Miguel Cabrera entered play leading the AL in batting average (.352), tied for second in home runs (18), and first [...]
