Chris Davis should move back to first base for the Baltimore Orioles

On June 26th the Baltimore Orioles moved Chris Davis to right field after a recent call up of Chris Parmelee due to some injuries in the corner outfield positions and some mediocre production as well.

Lesson learned: Minor leaguer hits HR but misses plate

BALTIMORE (AP) When a player hits a home run, there's really only one overriding rule when running the bases: Touch `em all. Elier Levya of the Class A Delmarva Shorebirds failed to do so after hitting a clutch home run Sunday, and his mistake proved costly in a 5-4 loss. Levya hit the ball over the wall in the ninth inning to apparently give visiting Delmarva a 5-4 lead over Augusta...

Remembering Andy MacPhail’s time in Baltimore

Earlier this week, a friend of mine who follows the Philadelphia Phillies asked me how excited he should be about the team’s addition of Andy MacPhail to its front office staff. Very, I told him.

Baltimore Orioles trade rumors: On the block

With trade season looming, the Baltimore Orioles will most likely be buyers instead of sellers. But with every action comes an opposite reaction. If the Os wish to snag a skilled player at the trade deadline, they must be willing to give something up and certain players on the current Baltimore roster are more likely to be involved in these trades than others. The first player that...

Baltimore Orioles trade rumors: Cole Hamels edition

Over the past few seasons the media has highlighted the concern that the Baltimore Orioles lack an ace on the starting staff. Buck Showalter has ignored these claims and kept a balanced staff with solid but not great pitchers.

The Baltimore Orioles season can best be described as a car stuck in the mud spinning its tires, going neither forward or backwards.

The usually potent offensive has had periods of inactivity and the pitching has been decent but not great. But have no fear Orioles fans, there is still...
