Stepping up for the AL Wild Card

As mentioned earlier this week and fairly consistently throughout the season, the American League Wild Card race remains the most competitive in all of baseball. Since August 17th, the Yankees, Rangers, Blue Jays, Twins, Orioles, and Angels have all held one spot or the other and while Toronto and New York have played well enough to separate themselves from the pack, all the other...

Baltimore Orioles trade rumors: Nine days until the deadline

The MLB rumor mill has been spinning pretty fast in the last few days, and the Baltimore Orioles are right in the thick of the discussion. It seems likely that the Orioles will be buyers in the coming week, as Dan Duquette looks to improve a team that has looked no better than mediocre in the last month of play.

Fantasy Roundup: Tillman Turning a Corner

Looking at Chris Tillman’s performance this season, it doesn’t seem like there is any reason to consider adding him in just about any format, but his July performance has changed the script to some degree. In the 18.2 innings he’s pitched in the month, he has a 20.0 K-BB% and a 50% ground ball rate. That has resulted in a 1.61 FIP, 2.89 xFIP, and 1.93 ERA. His start Saturday...

Baltimore Orioles trade rumors: Plan of attack

The Baltimore Orioles ended the first half of the season the same way they started it, with a .500 record. The Orioles have been missing the synergy from past seasons and can’t seem to get everything to mesh together at the same time. However, the Orioles have not been playing poorly and are still very much in contention for a playoff spot. Making moves in free agency could provide...

The real cause of Chris Tillman’s struggles

The numbers this season for Baltimore Orioles’ right-hander Chris Tillman are unsightly at best, ugly at worst. Tillman was handed the ball on Opening Day this year, and for good reason. Over the prior three seasons, he had pitched to a 38-16 record. Tillman was as close to an ace as the Orioles had, and he did not disappoint on Opening Day, allowing only one earned run in 6.2...

Baltimore Orioles: The status of the starting rotation

The month of May was not kind to the Baltimore Orioles. They went 13-16, and were just 10-10 during a 20-game stretch that included 17 home games.

Rookie pitcher Mike Wright was one of the lone bright spots for the team during May, as he went 2-1 with an...
