Found May 04, 2012 on RedSoxLife:
It should be good news, for the wobbly Sox, that the Orioles are coming to town. But it isn't.The Orioles are second in the AL East, with a 16-9 record. Tonight's starter, Wei-Yin Chen, is 2-0 with 19 strikeouts in 24 innings pitched.It would be great news, for all of baseball, if the Orioles resurged. Baltimore has had tough times, but it is a great baseball, town, and there aren't many of those left. Who wouldn't want to see the Orioles make a run? I just hope the Sox run a little further.And I really hope this series doesn't provoke High Anxiety.

Wieters is a rock and a rockstar

How do you live up to nicknames that compare you to the reigning MVP, or better yet, to Jesus? The short answer: you don't. A year ago, Matt Wieters was considered a disappointment. By July, he was an All-Star. Now, in the first week of May 2012, with the Orioles near the top of the American League East, Wieters is being tabbed as the best catcher in baseball by many...

Will the Orioles Finish This Season Above .500?

Don't look now, but the Baltimore Orioles are pretty good. At least, so far. Heading into this weekend's series against the Red Sox, the O's are riding high. They've won eight of their last 10 games, including two of three at Yankee Stadium, and are coming to Boston with a bit of a pep in their step. Whether or not they can keep up it up remains to be seen. The last...

Is the Yanks-Orioles Rivalry Back?

After beating the Yankees last night, the Orioles are now 16-9 and a game behind Tampa in the AL East. The team that most pundits picked to finish a distant last has a better record than the Yanks on May 3rd. To date, they are hands down the biggest surprise of the 2012 baseball season. Of course, its early as we have seen many teams look like champs in April; even the Orioles. Back...

Reimold on DL...

This is too bad for Nolan Reimold and the Orioles... Orioles place Reimold on 15-day disabled list The Orioles today announced that they have placed OF NOLAN REIMOLD on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to May 1, with a herniated disc and recalled CA LUIS EXPOSITO from Triple-A Norfolk.

Orioles bringing back Tejada?

The Orioles may be bringing back a familiar face. It looks like they are giving an opportunity to Miguel Tejada, their former star.

Sox Lose In Extras To Orioles 6-4

Cody Ross tripled and ended up scoring on a passed ball by Ronny Paulino. Baltimore got the run back in the top of the 3rd on a lead-off home run by Mark Reynolds off...

Arrieta pitches gem; Orioles take two out three from Yankees, Wada

The Baltimore Orioles this season have continued to amaze me. We all know their next few weeks are going to be tough, but so far they are continuing to roll. Last night, they defeated the New York Yankees, 6-0, in the Bronx. Jake Arrieta perhaps threw his best game as an Oriole, going eight shutout innings, striking out nine and stifling a tough New York lineup. Matt Wieters hit...

Game 27: Orioles 8, Red Sox 2

Game one of this series, the O's went into Fenway and had to face Jon Lester - that usually seems like an auto-loss. Especially when the Birds fell behind. But no, they battled back - a Wieters' triple, Mark Reynolds' first home run of the year (plus a double and a walk), three walks and a hit from Wilson Betemit - and the bullpen pitched 8 scoreless innings as the Orioles...
