The Baltimore Orioles didn’t come into the season with delusions of grandeur. They knew they were at the beginning of a rebuild. While the season went pretty much as expected, they finished with the second-worst record, there are a few bright spots and things to build on. Let’s take a look at the 2019 Baltimore Orioles.
Hopefully, La Machine thanks me after the end of the season with all the promotion I’ve been giving him. Just like the weather this weekend the man stayed hot. He batted .423 this week and has only been hitless in one game since the end of the all-star break, and 27 of his last 29 games. Continue reading →
The baseball season is a grind. It’s every single day. We will approach DFS the same way and be winners at the end of the season even if we have our hot streaks and slumps.

Hard to believe that only a few years ago, the Orioles had Manny Machado, Chris Davis (when he was good) Adam Jones, and Matt Wieters. This team reached the ALCS in 2014. So how were they this past season? 47-115 and finished dead last in the AL East for the second straight year. This will be a painful process, but let’s take a look at what the Orioles will field this season.
