Series Preview: Orioles (60-64) vs. A’s (54-70)

Wade Miley of the Orioles pitches.
After failing to capitalize on a prime opportunity versus the Angels over the weekend, the Orioles will now look to recover in a hurry and try to build some momentum versus the lowly Oakland A’s over the next three nights. For the Orioles, time is running out for them to state their case for a playoff spot in October. A favorable three-game set versus the second-worst team in the AL must translate to at least two wins in the back pocket, if not all three. It doesn’t help that Boston […]

Week in Review: Opportunities Squandered

Kevin Gausman walks off the mound as an Angels player rounds the bases after a HR.
Right off of the heels of a disheartening tenure on the West Coast, the Orioles had a prime chance to make up for it in a massive way but failed to seize the opportunity this weekend versus the Angels. A series win would have been not only massive for the team morale coming into a lengthy stand at home, but a chance to cut into a 2.5-game deficit for the final playoff spot in the AL has come and gone. Instead, the Orioles now stand at four games out of […]

Series Preview: Orioles (59-62) vs. Angels (62-59)

Manny Machado and Mike Trout sie-by-side.
After capping off a topsy-turvy trip on the West Coast by dropping two out of three in Seattle, the Orioles will be looking to recover and bounce back from a bruising blow in the form of a 4-6 road trip over the weekend against the Los Angeles Angels. On the sunny side of things, the Orioles will now dig in and try to rack up a haul of crucial wins at home. They’ll be playing in the friendly confines of Camden Yards for sixteen of the next nineteen contests. Winning […]

Series Preview: Orioles (58-60) @ Mariners (59-60)

A shot of Safeco Field in Seattle.
After dropping a series in Anaheim before splitting a four-game set versus the Athletics in Oakland, the Orioles will now head to Seattle to take on the Mariners to conclude their three-legged, ten-game tour through the West Coast. And to say it is a crucial three-game set on the Orioles remaining schedule would be an understatement. The Orioles (58-60) are just a half a game behind the Rays for third place in the AL East and trail the Angels by only 2.5-games for the second and final wild card spot […]

Week in Review: Treading Pacific Water

The Orioles' Tim Beckham.
Just as it seemed as if the Orioles were set to break on through to the other side… another week has passed, and it still hasn’t happened…yet. But make no mistake about it: these Orioles are geared up for the home stretch, and they’re not going down without a fight. After taking just one of three in Anaheim, the Orioles bounced back to split the four-game set in Oakland over the weekend. While a 3-4 record over the first seven games of their ten-game swing out on the West Coast […]

Series Preview: Orioles (53-54) vs. Tigers (49-57)

Kevin Gausman & Justin Verlander side-by-side pitching photos.
After making their intentions known with an amazing three-game sweep of the red-hot Royals, the Orioles will look to keep the good times rolling over a four-game set against the Detroit Tigers before hitting the West Coast. Just like that, folks. These Orioles are making a lot of noise outside, and thanks to a five-game winning tear, they’re about to start banging on the door. If they can stay in top form, they’ll be more like unwelcome guests that arrived just in time to crash the party. No team in […]

Series Preview: Orioles (50-54) vs. Royals (55-48)

Dylan Bundy finishes his pitching motion.
After rallying last weekend in Arlington to keep their playoff aspirations alive, the Orioles will now look to keep the positive energy flowing during their upcoming three-game set versus the holders of the second wild card spot in the AL, the Kansas City Royals. For a team that is trying to claw their way back into a playoff spot, they can’t afford to go backwards against the club that they are currently trying to track down. The Orioles’ upcoming seven-game home stand will be their biggest home stand of the […]

Week in Review: Fighting to the Trade Deadline

Baltimore Orioles CF Adam Jones flies high over the wall to rob a home run.
Another week has come and gone here in Birdland, and guess what? The Birds are still alive. If you don’t believe it, all you have to do is look at the standings. Crazy, right? After losing a monumental series down in Tampa before getting drubbed 8-2 in the series opener over in Arlington, the Orioles very well could have been down for the count. The hope was dwindling, and a massive road trip was turning into a disaster in a hurry. Not so fast. Instead, these Orioles had another idea […]

Series Preview: Orioles (48-53) @ Rangers (49-52)

Chris Tillman of the Baltimore Orioles pitches.
After taking just one of three in Tampa, the Orioles will be looking to end their road trip on a high note during a three-night stay in Arlington before returning home to kick off a seven-game home stand versus Kansas City and Detroit. With the Orioles still on the outside looking in, every single series remaining on the schedule holds a crucial meaning. They can’t afford to drop games and series like they did earlier this week, and with the majority of the teams in playoff contention gaining momentum as […]

Series Preview: Orioles (47-51) @ Rays (51-48)

Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, FL.
After keeping their playoff hopes alive over a ten-game home stand to kick off the second half of their campaign, the Orioles will now look to keep the good vibes flowing over a six-game, two-legged road trip. The upcoming road trip will undoubtedly represent the most important six-game stretch away from home of the season for the Orioles. Not only will they start out with a three-game set versus the current co-holders of the second wild card spot in the form of the Tampa Bay Rays, they’ll then travel to […]

Week in Review: Heart’s Still Beating

Chris Davis rounds the bases with Rougned Odor in the background.
After getting crushed by the Cubs to start the second half, it would have been easy for the Orioles to throw in the towel on the 2017 season and give in to the pressure of a looming rebuild… Not just yet. The Orioles had other plans in mind, as evidenced by their impressive four-game sweep of the Rangers. They also held their own against the AL-leading Astros as well, starting with a furious comeback that fell just short on Friday and a hard-fought 9-7 victory on Sunday to avoid the […]

Series Preview: Orioles (46-49) vs. Astros (63-32)

The Astros' Jose Altuve watches after swinging.
After bursting back to life with a four-game sweep of the Rangers, the Orioles will look to keep the good vibes flowing over the weekend versus the Houston Astros. The Orioles will also be looking to conclude their ten-game home stand on a high note before hitting the road for a six-game road swing. While they looked to be in vintage form over their current four-game win streak, they’ll have their work cut out in replicating that form against the AL’s best and the second-best team in the bigs this […]

Series Preview: Orioles (42-49) vs. Rangers (45-46)

Cole Hamels of the Rangers sets to pitch.
After getting swept and embarrassed by the Cubs in their own house over the weekend, the Orioles will be looking to shrug it off and quickly bounce back over their upcoming four-game set versus the Texas Rangers this week. Quite frankly, their season and the fate of this current Orioles squad depends on it. No pressure, but it’s time to put up or shut up if they want to remain in the hunt for a wild card spot down the stretch. The Orioles (42-49) will start the week nine games […]

Week(end) in Review: Mid-July Massacre

A Cubs player watches the ball sail at Oriole Park at Camden Yards.
If there were still any of you out there who were as optimistic about our chances of turning it around in the second half as I was, you’re probably pretty bummed on this dreary Monday morning. Bummed doesn’t begin to do it justice. More along the lines of gutted, hopeless and heartbroken. The feeling is like when you catch your girlfriend cheating on you with your best friend three days in a row while “Black” by Pearl Jam, “Where did you sleep last night” by Nirvana and “Nutshell” by Alice […]

Series Preview: Orioles (42-46) vs. Cubs (43-45)

cubs pitcher winded back before throwing pitch
After (hopefully) recharging their batteries over the last four days, the Orioles will look to come out of the break swinging this weekend versus the reigning World Champion Chicago Cubs. While the All-Star Break was fun, it’s time to get down to business. The Orioles might not have to climb Mount Everest to get back in the fight, but they’re certainly down on the score cards. The time for error has come and gone, and it’ll take a total team effort to get to the promise land. However, their current […]

O’s First-Half Report Card: Pitchers

Now that we’ve graded out the hitters on the squad, let’s hand out the grades for the Orioles pitching staff. Grading out the hitters was pretty fun. This will be….less fun? Yeah, let’s go with that. Let’s rip the band-aid off and get to it! Dylan Bundy Bundy hit the 2017 season with hurricane force and ended the month of April with a 3-1 record and a sparkling 1.65 ERA over five starts. He followed up by posting a solid 3-2 record and a 3.92 ERA over six starts in […]

O’s First-Half Report Card: Position Players

Mark Trumbo of the Orioles follows through on a swing.
Now that we’ve graded out the main four components of the team, it’s time to hand out the report cards for each cog in the Orioles machine. We’ll jump right into it and start out with the positional players. For a lot of them, the numbers as a whole don’t look so bad. However, consistency has evaded almost everyone on this list, so that factor played a part in the grading process. If they can just hit top form and stay there, a lot of C’s and C+’s could easily […]

Orioles First-Half Report Card

Buck Showalter scowls from the dugout.
After winning the final two games of the first half in Minnesota, the Orioles have hit the break at 42-46 and 7.5-games behind the Boston Red Sox for first place in the AL East. After starting out the season with an MLB-best 22-10 record, things have not gone exactly as planned and the Orioles have taken their fair share of bumps and bruises along the way. However, the Orioles are just four games out of the playoff picture…and there are still 74 games left to play. Even if you doubt […]

Week in Review: Staying Alive

Adam Jones rounds the bases after a HR in Minnesota.
After going through the whole business week without a win, the Orioles finally snapped out of their losing slumber by picking up two huge wins and a series split in Minneapolis over the weekend before hitting the All-Star Break. On the other hand, it kind of sucks to have to park the bus for the next four days just as the Orioles were starting to break on through to the other side. That’s how it goes sometimes, and while I’m sure the coaches and players will enjoy their time off […]

Series Preview: Orioles (40-44) @ Twins (43-41)

Manny Machado signals to Adam Jones after his game-winning hit.
After getting battered and bruised in Milwaukee over the last three days, the Orioles will look to hit the erase button and try to pick up some much-needed momentum over the next four days in Minneapolis before the All-Star Break. The toughest thing to swallow is the fact that the Orioles looked to be on the mend at the end of June, only to see their hard work undone in a matter of three soul-crushing days. As a result, the Orioles (40-44) will head into the Twin Cities at a […]
