As always, I’ll try to keep this one short. The Baltimore Orioles have rattled off six wins in a row and look more and more like a playoff-caliber team with each outing (we’re looking at you, Dylan Bundy of one-hit ball last night). Maybe it’s because Jonathan Schoop is playing at a level previously unseen […]Read more
This Is (Probably) Not Fine, Birdland
I’ll keep this one short-ish and possibly pretty rant-y. Since last week’s possible panic post, the Orioles have played .500 ball, going 4-4 through last night’s 5-1 loss to the Indians. That’s not all that bad. It’s not that great, but it’s not all that bad, either. That is, until you realize that two of those losses came […]Read more
This (May Not) Be Fine, Birdland
The Orioles have lost 22 of their last 31 games, some of those after being completely shellacked. This is after starting the season 22-10.

This is especially true since I spoke on the Orioles doing the opposite not too long ago. But, I’m in the mindset that the Orioles, especially if they’re in a win-now […]Read more
Speed on the Beat Talks The Orioles’ Opening Day Win
The Orioles open the 2017 season with a dramatic 3-2 win in extra innings versus their bitter rival, the Toronto Blue Jays. After having a bit of a pitcher’s duel through the first 9, Mark Trumbo decided to keep calm and go jumbo in the bottom of the 11th inning. I was on my way […]Read more
