I’ll keep this one short, since I know it’s one of a million posts out there just like it. I’ve voiced my appreciation for Adam Jones quite a bit over the years, even naming him my favorite Oriole. Yes, he finally passed Eric Davis, mainly due to his social activism and general boyish love of […]Read more
SOTBSports: Should the Orioles Bring Back Adam Jones?
The Baltimore Orioles are a rebuilding team, at least for the next few years. There’s no way around it. They need to restock, rebuild, and—in some ways—re-learn the way that they play baseball and conduct baseball business. They will probably struggle the next couple of years and may not be all that great. I’ll still […]Read more
We Need to Accept that the Orioles Need to Blow Up This Year’s Squad
Let me rant for a bit. Now, let me preface this rant by saying I grew up when the Orioles sucked. I mean, “worse than even this year” sucked. I was born during the tail end of the 1988 season, I had my first kiss when Mike Hargrove was the manager, and I lost my […]Read more
SOTBSports: Can The @Orioles Maintain This Current Run?
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. The offense has struggled, but the defense and pitching have been atrocious. Sure, Manny’s struggled at the plate and the team’s lost Zach Britton and Chris Tillman (to name a couple […]Read more
