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...

BALTIMORE — You may hear “Nick Hundley vs. Kansas City Royals baserunners” is a key matchup within the American League Championship Series.
That is an oversimplification.
The truth is that the Baltimore Orioles, as a group, will be charged with controlling the Royals’ speed on the bases — not merely Hundley, who manager Buck Showalter said probably will start behind the...
