This weekend, the Orioles start a long, ten-game road trip, and their first stop is in Toronto, Canada, as they face the Blue Jays.
It's a three-game set up north, and with the Orioles now 3-3, plus mired in a three-game skid, they hope to get things back in order.
The Jays are 4-2 and are atop the American League East along with the Tampa Bay Rays. A small group of experts are pegging Toronto as a team that has an outside chance at the playoffs, but not likely.
However, they have a lot of young talent and are definitely on the rise within the division. It will be intriguing to watch them throughout the season and see where they end up.
Tonight, Tommy Hunter - who pitched very well in his first outing of the season - squares off against Brandon Morrow on the mound.
The Baltimore Orioles could easily be 5-1 or 4-2; however, the New York Yankees swept the Orioles this week. They were very much in game two and three of the series; alas, the Orioles didn't help out their si...

AROUND THE WEB
You read it right.
In the bottom of the ninth inning on Saturday with the Jays down two runs and Endy Chavez seeing his first action of the game as a defensive replacement, a Toronto fan tossed a potato at the left fielder, causing a brief stoppage in play.
Must be a Canadian thing.
Chavez jogged the vegetable into third base umpire Jim Wolf who couldn’t help but to laugh.
An interesting screenshot emerged of Orioles’ second baseman Robert Andino’s facial expression through the years with the franchise, and it appears he finally discovered the team he plays for.
I can only imagine the horrified look we’d see if he played for the Mets.
Jackie Robinson Day will be celebrated throughout the majors on Sunday, and two young African-American outfielders have a special tribute planned. Adam Jones of the Orioles and Jason Heyward of the Braves plan to wear the cleats pictured above to honor the man who broke MLB’s color barrier.
Heyward tweeted that the cleats are the Nike Griffey Jr. Swingman model spikes. He also...
Baltimore Orioles first base coach Wayne Kirby was caught on camera playing with bubble gum containers in the dugout during a rain delay before Wednesday night's game at Camden Yards against the New York Yankees.

Kirby took two containers of Dubble Bubble gum, which still had gum in them, and held them up to his ears like an elephant...
Ah, there’s nothing like a good 'ol slugfest.
After being swept by the Yankees this week, the Orioles turned it on last night at the plate and beat the Toronto Blue Jays, 7-5, to start their three game series. There were seven home runs in the game on Friday night, but Baltimore’s offense turned it on late and the bullpen closed it out.
The Jays have owned the Orioles over...
Despite starting out hot, sweeping the Minnesota Twins, the Baltimore Orioles followed that series up with getting swept at home by the New York Yankees. Much like 2011 where the O's started 6-1, things are sure to return back to normal and the team will settle into last place soon enough, something the players, like (noted Red Sox killer) Robert Andino seems all too aware of...
The New York Yankees have always proven to be a pain-in-the-you-know-what for the Baltimore Orioles over the years, and last night was no exception.
For the second consecutive game, both teams went into extra innings; however, once again, the Yankees emerged victorious as they defeated the Orioles, 6-4, in ten innings.
After starting 3-0, Baltimore is now 3-3. We as fans can feel...
News and notes on Adam Jones, Dylan Bundy and more.
Note the moment: The Baltimore Orioles lead the AL East.How often can you say that?The Sox remain in the cellar, but only two games separate all the teams. Which means this moment will most likely be short-lived. But never say never, I guess.
The Orioles are off to a solid 4-3 start. At the beginning of the year if you told me that the Orioles would have that record, I would take it and be happy. however, getting swept by the Yankees in heartbreaking fashion after sweeping the Twins definitely stung. The Orioles needed that win against Toronto in Toronto last night for a couple reasons. They needed to halt an early three...
