Baltimore Orioles may have help waiting in the wings

It’s been an up-and-down season for the Baltimore Orioles. There’s no denying that fact. At 58-56, the team has struggled to break loose from the clutches of the .500 level. Thanks to a myriad of factors — inconsistent offensive production, spotty starting pitching, injuries, and just plain old bad luck — the Orioles are nowhere close to duplicating 2014’s 96-win season...

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. Chris Tillman, previously thought of as the ace of the team’s pitching staff, was a dreadful 0-5 over the course of the month. Rookie pitcher Mike Wright was one of the lone bright spots for the team during May, as he went 2-1 with an...

Orioles’ development of Wright and Wilson looks good

Normally, starting two rookie pitchers with a combined total of two Major League starts in a double header is a recipe for two tallies in the loss column. That would be the case for most teams, but after years of struggling to develop Major League ready starting pitching, the Baltimore Orioles appear to finally have developed a pair of starters who can be competent pieces in a big...

After Saturday’s win, I commented on how the Angels had won five in a row but done so in an uninspiring way: This is the part where everyone calls me a pessimist, but this is one of the least confidence inspiring 5-game winning streaks ever, no? — Garrett Wilson (@Garrett_MWAH) May 17, 2015 I fully expected to get shouted down, but I wasn’t.
