2012 season preview: Baltimore Orioles

2011 was another year of "more of the same" for the Baltimore Orioles. It was the team's 14th straight season under .500, and fifth straight under 70 wins. That futility has led to six straight top ten picks in the June draft, giving the team such players as superstar catcher Matt Wieters, enigmatic starter Brian Matusz, and a pair of top 100 prospects in Dylan Bundy...

The Orioles starters had a 5.39 ERA last year, which helped deep six their solid team OPS of .729. Baltimore also had some terrible defense, most of which came at the hands of Reynolds over at third base. If Baltimore's rotation can cut a run...

Spring Training: The Phils lose 1-0 to the Orioles on a solo home run.

The Phils’ spring training record even up at four-four as they lose 1-0 to the Orioles on a solo home run. In the fourth, Chris Davis breaks up a 0-0 tie with a lead-off solo home run, his first home run of the spring, giving the Orioles a 1-0 lead. That would end up being the only score as neither team would be able to mount up much of an offense. Joe Blanton received a no-decision...

Orioles Sign 18 to Contracts; Yoenis Cespedes' Huge Day

Rays Thank Robert Andino for Game-Winning Hit Against Red Sox With Standing Ovation Before Spring Training At-Bat

Orioles infielder Robert Andino only hit .263 last season, but he still gave the Red Sox fits, especially on the last day of the season. Andino was the guy who delivered the two-out, ninth-inning RBI single in the season finale to cap off a Baltimore rally, allowing the Tampa Bay Rays to then secure the American League wild card moments later. Although the Rays weren't able to...

The Relentless March

This is March in Baltimore. Sixty degrees one day, thirty the next for no apparent reason. Being in education we are in the long period of uninterrupted time between President's Day and Spring Break that just makes the kids antsy and uncooperative. Daylight Savings time means we all start getting up in the darkness again, just as soon as we were all enjoying the sunshine but...
