Coming into the season the starting pitching was a bit in question, I actually liked all our starters but they have had their ups and downs.  The Baltimore Orioles for the most part have had six starters this season which is unlike the past few seasons in which it seemed like the Orioles rotation was …

Beating Yu Darwish and now the first-place Birds

It’s easy to forget that well-traveled Joe Saunders pitched a big game for Baltimore in 2012. It was the strange one-game playoff game in 2012.

One great playoff game: And the bad Manny

It’s October 10, 1973. And frankly the Birds of Baltimore had their backs to the wall. Powerful Oakland (with Reggie Jackson) were up two games to one in a best of five AL championship series. And the clinching game for Oakland saw the A’s chase O’s ace Jim Palmer with a three-run third inning. Roy …

A 27-run loss to Texas; And Orioles/Texas series review

The most amazing thing is the Orioles took a 3-0 lead to the fourth inning. It was a night game at Camden Yards. Texas was in town on this late August date. It didn’t really all that much anyway. The O’s were 17 games back of first place and Texas was 18 games out in …
