For the Orioles, it has been an amazing start to the season. However, have the real Birds – at least, from what we have known the last 14 years – finally shown up?
The first six weeks were something to behold, as they looked like contenders and took the baseball world by storm; however, in the last eight days, the Orioles have gone 2-6, and the starting pitching – which had been a hallmark – has started to suffer a little.
Should we as fans start to worry? Have the good times stopped rolling for the Birds?
Not to say that the Orioles are in eminent trouble; alas, the past week has not looked good for the,. Could there be some fraying of the pitching staff – who knows? In addition, they have had issues with pushing runs across, especially with runners in scoring position.
It's still early and we should not push the panic button, but fans are starting to get a little antsy.

Wieters received his first career ejection for arguing balls and strikes with Eddings during Toronto's three-run fifth inning, removing his mask and yelling at Eddings after Rajai Davis grounded an RBI single to...
It looks like after the loss on Monday night, the Orioles decided to make some moves. As I thought, the Orioles would demote Tommy Hunter today; however, they also sent Xavier Avery back to Triple-A after scuffling pretty badly as of late.
Endy Chavez is back from the disabled list.
Although Avery did well his first week up in Baltimore and his sample size doesn't indicate...
One of the major complaints about the Stars and Stripes hats is they don’t match the uniforms. Well, the Orioles changed their uniform to match the hat (well not really, they changed their uniform to match the shirt they were giving away to match the hat). The new Baltimore Uniform for at least Memorial Day looks like this:
Online there is no word if a portion of these uniform...
Baltimore Orioles general manager Dan Duquette said Sunday the team's signing of outfielder Adam Jones to a long-term deal says how much it is committed to building a winner. "We're telling Oriole fans we're committed to this player, we're committed to putting a winning team on the field and we're committing to providing hope to rebuilding our fan base...
During last night's Baltimore Orioles/Kansas City Royals game, Orioles first baseman Chris Davis lost his bat into the stands in the fifth inning and had it returned by the fan who caught it.
Later in the game, Davis was at the plate with his returned bat and slugged a home run into right field much to the delight of the fan who returned it:

The Baltimore Orioles have hit a bit of a rough patch.
Facing the struggling Toronto Blue Jays might help them get back on track.
The visiting Orioles look to avoid matching a season high with their third straight loss Monday night by handing the Blue Jays a sixth consecutive defeat.
Baltimore (29-19) held a two-game lead atop the AL East on May 19 while riding a five-game winning...

Dan Szymborski, Fangraphs.com12:05 Comment From Dauer With Power Still a lot of deep-engine work left to do to turn the O's into a winning franchise, but Dan Duquette's got a winning team now. What do you want to see him do at the deadline?12:06 Dan Szymborski: I expect the O's to be a bit off the pace by that point, hopefully pressure from the brainuntrustworthy upstairs...
Adam Jones is ecstatic about one particular baseball transaction during the last week.
No, it’s not his six-year, $85.5 million extension with the Baltimore Orioles.
It was the Detroit Tigers’ decision to call up outfielder Quintin Berry, Jones’ best friend since they were 5 years old and attending Webster Elementary School in San Diego. The two are so close that Jones is the...
As I’m writing this, the Dodgers and Orioles are both in first place, with neither team expected to make a major splash in the off-season (though our very own Thomas Wayne did predict a major improvement for the O’s this season.
The Orioles currently sit at 29-19 (though they’re losing to the Blue Jays as I write). The bats have been there, with 5 regulars posting OPS+’s...
