Manny Machado Could be Permanent Solution as Orioles’ Leadoff Hitter

In a stroke of pure Buck Showalter genius, Manny Machado batted out of the leadoff spot in the Baltimore Orioles’ lineup last night in their 4-0 win over the Tampa Bay Rays. Machado went 0-for-3, but did score a run after a walk. Showalter has made a habit of using players in his leadoff slot who do not possess the typical top-of-the-order speed like Nick Markakis for most of...

Orioles close gates; fans still find a way to show up

Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports I had no idea what to expect as I made the fifteen minute drive from my house in Catonsville, Maryland to my home away from home, Oriole Park at Camden Yards.

Manny Machado Is Still A Human Vacuum Cleaner With A Howitzer Arm

From last night, via FTW, adding to the Manny Machado collection: Your browser does not support iframes. Brilliant. Though MLB really shouldn’t be tacking 15-second commercials onto the front end of five-second highlights.

Baltimore Orioles making race for the AL Pennant more than just a two-team battle

It’s never safe to make presumptions—especially in the realm of sports prognostications. So when it was determined that the Oakland A’s and Detroit Tigers have become virtual locks to hook up in the American League Championship Series following their respective pre-trade deadline deals in order to bolster already-stellar starting pitching rotations, we were all setting ourselves...

WATCH: Manny Machado makes unreal throw from third

Manny Machado has great range and a powerful arm, and he displayed both during Wednesday night’s game against the Los Angeles Angels. Angels first baseman Albert Pujols hit a ball down the third base line, forcing Machado to field it in foul territory. The Orioles star immediately turned and fired toward first base. His throw got to the bag in plenty of time for the out, and for...

WATCH: Manny Machado lets go of bat, benches clear

Baltimore Orioles third baseman Manny Machado has had a bit of a tempter against the Oakland A’s. Last night he was slamming the bat at the plate after being struck out, and today in a 10-0 game, Oakland A’s pitcher Fernando Abad threw an inside fastball and brushed him back. After the next pitch, Machado swung extremely late and let go of the bat, which flew all the way out...
