Baltimore Orioles trade rumors: On the block

With trade season looming, the Baltimore Orioles will most likely be buyers instead of sellers. But with every action comes an opposite reaction. If the Os wish to snag a skilled player at the trade deadline, they must be willing to give something up and certain players on the current Baltimore roster are more likely to be involved in these trades than others. The first player that...

The club has already scored 81 runs in the season’s third month after scoring only 95 runs the entire month of May. Part of that offensive resurgence...

J.J. Hardy and Steve Pearce Have Major Handshake Issues

It’s been a rough first 44 games for the Orioles’ J.J. Hardy and Steve Pearce. Combined, both players combine for a WAR of just 0.2 (via FanGraphs) and seven home runs, which probably isn’t what Orioles were hoping for when Nelson Cruz packed up his boomstick and jetted over to Seattle. However, what’s even more concerning is that the duo’s struggles have apparently followed...

The Baltimore Orioles Need Clarity in the Outfield

Entering the 2015 season, the most worrisome position — make that two positions — for Baltimore Orioles fans were the corner outfield spots. That’s to be expected when the club loses a 40-home run bat in Nelson Cruz and a franchise cornerstone in Nick Markakis. Unlike most Orioles fans, however, I remained pretty positive when looking at the Orioles’ outfield options to replace...

Doing the Little Things Helping the Orioles Win

The Baltimore Orioles have won two games in a row and inched their way back to one game below .500. The last two victories, however, have not come easy. On Thursday, the Orioles took a 5-4 win from the Seattle Mariners with an eighth inning run. Last night’s 8-5 win over the Miami Marlins was more difficult than the final score would indicate, as the Orioles dug their way out of...

The Potential New J.D. Martinez

As far as health is concerned, the Orioles have had something of a middle-infield catastrophe, with injuries to J.J. Hardy, Ryan Flaherty, and Jonathan Schoop. Injuries sometimes force teams to do creative things, and what we saw Buck Showalter do was push Steve Pearce to second base on the fly. Pearce had never played the […]

Daily DraftKings Picks: Wednesday, May 13

Tuesday’s lineup was assigned a Risk Rating of 7, and the results back that up. C.J. Wilson did exactly as I expected, but the boom-or-bust lineup had a collection of boom and bust performances. Josh Harrison and Bryce Harper boomed. Steve Pearce and Jung-ho Kang busted. The rest were pretty average. Jake Arrieta was awesome. Overall this lineup got a min cash in the GPPs in which...
