2012 Fantasy Baseball: Zach Britton & The Baltimore Orioles Starting Rotation Preview

Zach Britton (credits below) Nothing seems to change in O-Town each year we discuss the starting pitching rotation. Good young talent filled with question marks and mediocrity is the norm in Baltimore. This year Jeremy Guthrie will lead the pack as the team's ace but how things shape up behind him still remains to be seen. I honestly can not find a pitcher in this rotation worth...

Oriole Rotation Projected to Improve

It is no secret to the long-suffering Oriole fan that a major factor in all the losing of late has been due to the team trotting out the most wretched pitching staff in the league for most of the past 14 seasons. Indeed, the team's collected hurlers have been unable to post a team ERA that ranked above 13th in the 14 team American League over the past four seasons. Could that...

Teams Should Watch the Orioles Roster (Another Option in the Mets Bench Search)

There was a post on MLB Trade Rumors this week that explains how interesting of a position the Orioles are in. The article just lists 11 players on the Mets 40 man roster, who are now out of Options, yet are all pretty much competing for spots on the 25 man roster.

Barring a last minute change, the Orioles are expected to go to arbitration hearings with starter Jeremy Guthrie and swingman Brad Bergesen -- which would be the first time the club has met with the three-person, independent panel since before the 2006 season.

Some Orioles notes on Manny, roster additions, Larish, Guthrie

The Orioles maintain some interest in slugger Manny Ramirez and have had internal conversations, but there are plenty of issues that would have to be rectified before the club would make a decision on whether to even offer him a contract.

Duquette's risky plan

Dan Duquette has a plan. It is not the plan that many wanted. Prince Fielder is not part of that plan, neither is trading Adam Jones or Jeremy Guthrie. No, but Duquette has a plan. And it is very risky. Looking at the moves Duquette has made this offseason I think it is pretty clear, he still believes in the talent that is on this roster. I made this comment at fanfest: "If...
