Orioles-Royals Preview

A six-game losing streak dropped the Baltimore Orioles several spots in the wild-card race. Back-to-back wins against the team with the best record in the AL would at least take some of the sting out of that. Baltimore tries to send the Kansas City Royals to rare consecutive home losses Thursday in the conclusion of this four-game series. Mired in their longest skid of the season...

Perpetually Looping Video: Chris Davis vs. All Capitalism

“Was it Karl Marx,” one might ask drunkenly at a party, “or Baltimore Orioles first baseman Chris Davis who memorably declared that ‘The production of too many useful things results in too many useless people’?” The answer, technically: Karl Marx, in his text Economic and Philosophic Manuscripts of 1844. The answer, metaphorically: Chris Davis, actually, by means of...

Twins hope youth can fuel turnaround, beginning in Baltimore

The Twins swept a series from the Orioles back on July 6-8, playing some of their best baseball of the 2015 campaign. Alas, that series seems like a distant memory after Minnesota (59-61) endured three straight setbacks in Yankee Stadium earlier this week. But the Twins are presented with another opportunity to improve their faint playoff pulse over the next four days, in Baltimore...

The Orioles’ playoff potential is strong

Last year the Orioles won the AL East division with 96 wins. They continued their success by sweeping the Tigers in the AL Division Series. Things were looking great.

Billy does it again: A's Burns robs Orioles' Davis of booming homer

The Oakland Athletics had another forgettable day at the office Monday, losing to the Baltimore Orioles to cap a four-game sweep at Camden Yards. It wasn't without one major highlight, however: center fielder Billy Burns, pressed into duty after outfielder Sam Fuld was ejected from the game, committed another play of all-out theft at the expense of Orioles slugger Chris Davis.

Chris Davis’ Incredible Feat of Strength

Hitting a home run in Major League Baseball requires a considerable amount strength. It’s probably fair to presume, however that, having previously hit 53 of them in a single season, Chris Davis is in the upper reaches of physical strength among MLB players. Of Davis’ 190 career home runs, likely none has displayed that strength more clearly than the one he hit this weekend to...

Caleb Joseph an underrated part of Orioles’ success

Since the All-Star break, Chris Davis is batting .336 with 15 home runs, 37 RBI, and a 1.208 OPS. For the Baltimore Orioles the explosion of Davis back to his 2013 production levels has been a godsend. Davis, however, is not the only Oriole having an outstanding second half.

Ranking The Chris Davis Mustache Vs. Other All-Time Orioles Greats

Daily DraftKings Picks: Monday, Aug 10

As usual, Monday offers us a short slate of games, which gives us limited options in DFS. The day boasts two of the game’s best pitchers — Chris Sale and Johnny Cueto — but I won’t pick either despite “pay for aces” being one of my core DFS tenets. Instead, I’ll pay for a second tier starter pitching like and ace, plus one of the high-upside stacks I tend to feature...

Chris Davis an MVP candidate?

At this point, it seems like the highest form of sacrilege to suggest that anyone other than Mike Trout has an outside shot at winning the American League MVP award, but bear with me. Chris Davis, who has been about as hot as anyone over the past 15 games, has a legitimate chance to be in the hunt for the award just a year removed from a truly terrible 2014 season. It may be a slim...
