We have heard countless times from Buck Showalter over the past month that no mater what the current wild card or division standings may look like, his club still has its eyes set on catching New York. Many may laugh that thought off as surely none of us would have written in the Orioles as the division [...]

“Every game there’s a different star, that’s the magic of Orioles baseball!” Nick Markakis twice came up with the bases loaded, and twice failed to deliver a single run. Adam Jones was 0-for-4 on the night. The team left eight runners on base. No matter. The O’s have Lew Ford and Nate McLouth! That’s right, [...]

Earlier this afternoon, the Orioles completed a waiver wire trade with the Arizona Diamondbacks to send Joe Saunders to Baltimore for relief pitcher Matt Lindstrom. Lets break this trade down. Joe Saunders is coming to town to fill the fifth rotation spot previously held by Tommy Hunter. Hunter has an ERA of nearly 6 (5.95), [...]

Your browser does not support iframes. On Friday night in Baltimore, Chris Davis bashed three home runs to help the Orioles beat the Toronto Blue Jays, 6-4. That feat is extremely impressive in itself, as Davis set new career highs in home runs (23) and RBI (64), with still well over a month to play [...]

The Orioles kick off a seven game home stand tonight that will have the Toronto Blue Jays and Chicago White Sox in town for three- and four-game series respectively. The Orioles have fared well against the Blue Jays this season going 5-4 including a three game sweep at home against the rival AL East club. While the [...]

The Detroit Tigers had won 16 of their last 19 contests at Comerica Park going into the start of the three-game weekend series with the Orioles this past weekend. After a 5-3 win on Friday night, Jim Leyland’s team had run that streak to 17-of-20, and had pulled even with the Birds in the American [...]

Hat tip to Dan Steinberg at DC Sports Bog for this one. My fantasy football draft party is this Sunday. I’m already dreading going to the store and picking up posterboard to make that damn draft board for the seventh straight year or whatever it is (stop being a cheapskate and just buy one, I [...]

Just as they’ve done all season, the Orioles once again made their living on the back of the long ball last night, using home runs to take the first game of the three-game set from the Boston Red Sox. Omar Quintanila got things started in the bottom of the third with a solo shot off [...]

Despite playing in only four games, Manny Machado’s production during that short stretch was enough to earn him American League Player of the Week honors (sharing the award with Boston’s Adrian Gonzalez). In his four games, the O’s young third baseman went 6-for-16 with three home runs, one triple, one double, five runs scored and [...]

The following is a guest post from Mike Randall at The Boh Pen, who was kind enough to let us re-post this very timely piece he wrote over the weekend.  If there is one thing fans of anything Baltimore hate, it’s when Pittsburgh does something better than us. It’s worth pointing out that attendance from [...]
