Can the Orioles really commit to Wei-Yin Chen long-term?

Left-handed starting pitchers do not grow on trees, especially ones that can be counted on for 30 or more mostly consistent starts per season. For the past four seasons, that’s exactly what Wei-Yin Chen has been for the Baltimore Orioles — a capable, fairly durable left-handed starter. Chen is not going to wow anyone, as his arsenal does not feature a blazing fastball or a devastating...

Manny Machado should not be moved again from his natural position

Manny Machado was drafted by the Baltimore Orioles to play shortstop. Picked third overall in 2010 behind a guy named Bryce Harper, Machado was set to join Cal Ripken among baseball’s best offensive shortstops. If there was ever a place for the legacy of the power-hitting, tall shortstop to be carried on, it was in Baltimore. Machado was a shortstop in the minor leagues, and he...

The Orioles’ frustrating season

It wasn’t supposed to be this way for the Orioles. After a second trip to the postseason in three years, one in which they got about one-sixth of a season from Matt Wieters and half a season from Manny Machado, making the playoffs in back-to-back seasons for the first time since 1996-1997 was the clear goal. It hasn’t happened that way. The team recently dropped six straight...

For the Baltmore Orioles, it was fun while it lasted

The Orioles were not a team of destiny a season ago. They were just really damn good.    Ninety-six wins is evidence enough, but a club that's able to run away with a perennially close AL East—with Manny Machado, Matt Wieters and Chris Davis all absent during the grind of September and October—is certainly one to be respected.  Had it not been for a historically...

You could be forgiven if you haven’t heard of Jonathan Schoop. But after what he did Wednesday night, you might want to get familiar with the Baltimore Orioles’ second baseman. During an 8-5 win over the Kansas City Royals, Schoop took Johnny Cueto deep, and when we say deep, we mean deep. In the top of the fourth, the 23-year-old Curocaoan turned around a 1-2 fastball and deposited...
