Ben and Sam banter about Gabe Kapler and Chris Tillman, then discuss the Orioles` dilemma about whether to let GM Dan Duquette leave (with help from The Good Wife).
Chris Tillman is an uninspiring fantasy player that you usually settle on rather than covet on draft day. In 2015, some might expect a breakout from Tillman for a variety of reasons:
He’s going into his age 27-season
This will be his third full season in the majors
He had a truly stunning second half last year
In fact, take out the month of May and Tillman was damn good the...
The Baltimore Orioles and starting pitcher Chris Tillman have mutual interest in a contract extension, according to a report by Roch Kubatko of Masn Sports.
“There are a few candidates for that,” GM Dan Duquette added. “We haven’t spent much time on that, but contract discussion is always a good time to explore that.”
Tillman is arbitration-eligible for the first time this...
The Orioles and starting pitcher Chris Tillman have mutual interest in a contract extension.
Tillman, 26, is arbitration eligible for the first time this winter. He will not be able to hit free agency until 2018 but tht has not stopped the two sides from expressing interest in a contract extension after the right hander has gone over the 200 innings mark in each of the last two...
Baltimore Orioles fans have been dealt two large blows in the past week, losing free agent outfielders Nelson Cruz and Nick Markakis to the Seattle Mariners and Atlanta Braves, respectively. These two core members of the 2014 Orioles team, which won the AL East and advanced to the ALCS, both chose to go elsewhere for a more lucrative paycheck.
The loss of two players of high caliber—Cruz...
The AL East was expected to be a dogfight between the Yankees, Red Sox and Rays this year. Instead, the Baltimore Orioles shocked them all and ran away with the division. So how exactly did they go about making everyone look so stupid for overlooking them?
Preseason Prediction: The Orioles face a pretty tall task if they’re going to contend for an AL East division title. They...

Chris Tillman‘s 2014 has a pretty great storyline. Approaching the end of July, Tillman had an average ERA and below-average peripherals, with 51 walks to go with 83 strikeouts. That’s not at all what the Orioles were looking for, and then all of a sudden Tillman turned his year around. Over the dozen starts he […]

The Baltimore Orioles' starting rotation isn't exactly littered with household names, but it certainly has gotten the job done for the AL East champs.
Chris Tillman has been the staff's workhorse, which is one reason why manager Buck Showalter will give him the nod when the postseason begins.

Sometimes you just need a little help from your friends. The Baltimore Orioles found that out last night as they clinched home-field advantage with a Chicago White Sox win over the Detroit Tigers. While the Orioles have exceeded expectations this season on their own, the White Sox secured that games one, two, and five of the ALDS will be played at Camden Yards.
After clinching the...

The Sox will send Rubby de la Rosa (4-7, 4.31 ERA) to the mound tonight against Orioles ace Chris Tillman (12-5, 3.29 ERA).

A pair of former Yankees come through in the ninth to break hearts again.
Hiroki Kuroda took the mound looking to keep the slimmest of hopes alive for the Yankees. After a very easy first inning, the Yankees offense would have a flash of power. Against Chris Tillman, Martin Prado would hit a home run just out of the reach of Alejandro De...
