Setting the Orioles' Playoff Rotation

Things are coming down to the wire, leaving Buck Showalter with some decisions to make as to how to utilize his pitching staff: The Orioles have clinched a play-off spot. Wow. That feels a little weird to write after the last 14 years (especially given expectations going into this season), but it's true. The team is guaranteed at least a Wild Card spot, and given the...

Orioles Injury News: Nick Markakis, Jason Hammel

While the Baltimore Orioles have guaranteed their spot in the postseason, their playoff roster continues to take shape. Baltimore received some good and bad news yesterday regarding two of their injured players; right fielder Nick Markakis and right-hander Jason Hammel. The Orioles announced that the pins in Markakis’ thumb won’t be removed for another week. The 28-year...

Orioles headed to Texas for play-in game

The Orioles had their best season since 1997, but the finish left something to be desired in Baltimore. Like a home playoff game, for example. Entering the season's final series in Tampa Bay, Baltimore held its own fate, with the potential for at least one postseason game at Oriole Park at Camden Yards. But after Evan Longoria homered three times, the Orioles boarded a...

Let’s Go O’s! On to the playoffs!

The last time our Baltimore Orioles clinched a playoff berth I was 4 years old. This is new territory for myself as well as the generation that was “lost” in close to a decade and a half of consecutive losing seasons. But that’s all in the past now – we are losers no more, we are playoff starved no more. But this ride doesnt feel like its coming to an end anytime soon. We...

Orioles rekindle city's love of baseball

After the most eventful Sunday in recent Baltimore Orioles history -- an emergency landing in Jacksonville, Fla., followed by the mathematical clinching of their first postseason berth in 15 years -- star center fielder Adam Jones sought context. "I didn't know we were going to be as good as we were," Jones said, in a quiet moment at his locker Monday afternoon. "...

Orioles fans finally taste success

Seconds after the Orioles clinched a postseason berth Sunday night, I stared at my phone, waiting for the inevitable. My brother-in-law, Brian, bombarding me with text messages and demanding that I fulfill a promise to apologize to him in print if the Orioles made the playoffs. "It should probably start with, 'My brother-in-law is a genius,'" Brian said. "...

Orioles Injury News: Jason Hammel Available for Playoffs

The Baltimore Orioles announced that right-hander Jason Hammel will be available to start a potential American League Division series opener this weekend, reports Eduardo Encina of the Baltimore Sun: "It feels as good as it's going to feel until the season's over," Hammel said before Tuesday's game against the Tampa Bay Rays. "I'm not thinking about...

Updated version of “Orioles Magic”

Some local Baltimore artists and fans decided it was time to update the Orioles Magic song. What do you think, Birds fans? I certainly enjoy the video, but I think I prefer the retro, silly, classic lyrics and song style. Here’s the old one to compare.

Orioles hope to trade wild card for AL East flag

It's been a zany, unpredictable season for the Baltimore Orioles, so perhaps it's only fitting that the magical moment when they clinched a playoff berth occurred while they were on a chartered flight forced to land short of its destination. Instead of spraying each other with champagne - the intended celebration earlier Sunday - the players exchanged handshakes. And that...

O's GM connected to former tormentor

Friday in Texas, the Baltimore Orioles will play their first postseason game in 15 years. The 2012 season has been one of rebirth for the franchise, a fresh start after 14 consecutive years with a losing record. But there's a link between the team's current architect and a tormenter from Octobers past. Yes, Jeffrey Maier played for Orioles general manager Dan Duquette....

Rays' Hellickson to start against Orioles

The Baltimore Orioles have done just about all they can to stay in contention for the AL East title. Their efforts still may not be enough, but being home for the wild-card game isn't the worst consolation. With a division title still a possibility, the Orioles hope to win their regular-season finale Wednesday night against the Tampa Bay Rays and at least secure home-field...

Deion Sanders takes batting practice with the Baltimore Orioles (Pictures)

For those of you who forgot, NFL legend Deion Sanders played Major League Baseball with the Atlanta Braves and the Cincinnati Reds. Last week, "Neon Deion" got the chance to take some batting practice with the Baltimore Orioles since Orioles manager Buck Showalter coached Deion when he was in the minor leagues with the Yankees.
