We all know that the Orioles had an amazing year in 2012.
Despite an offseason that should be filled with promise, I’m rather frustrated at the development of the team so far. The Orioles did go ahead a sign some minor league talent, mainly outfielder Chris Dickerson, who has had some decent numbers in part-time; however, the big moves that were thought were coming probably aren’t.
We all get his method of operation. He wants to sign ‘value’ or the ‘low-risk, high-reward’ players out there. It worked last year along with the various moves made between the major and minor league rosters.
It’s been rather confounding seeing some of the acquisitions and moves made so far. For the most part, they’ve been making my head scratch. With the Super Bowl this weekend, and gamblers looking at Super Bowl 47 odds, fans are too putting their bets together for the Orioles in 2013.
I’ve been asking all winter this question: can the Orioles repeat what they did again last year?
