Story | Dec 15, 2012 | 5:00 AMI talked to a major league scout Friday whose territory is strictly the American League East and whose opinion I really respect. He’s always been pretty spot on with his assessments, so I was curious as to what he thought about what has happened with this division since the postseason ended. I’m going to warn you, Orioles fans, he’s not sold on your club. In fact, if rosters were set today, the scout said he’d predict that the Orioles finish fourth in the AL East in 2013,...
By Eduardo A. Encina , The Baltimore SunStory | Dec 17, 2012 | 6:52 AMNow that the Blue Jays continue to load up this offseason – agreeing to acquire NL Cy Young award winner R.A. Dickey from the Mets pending signing him to an extension – I’m continuing to get questions about why the Orioles are being so quiet. The Red Sox have upgraded with a plethora of signings. The Rays dealt starter James Shields to get one of the top prospects in the game in Wil Myers to boost their anemic lineup. And the Blue Jays are showing there’s no concern of a fiscal...
Peter SchmuckColumn | Mar 30, 2013 | 4:17 PMIf the Orioles are to get back to the playoffs this year, they are going to have to climb over another mountain of national skepticism. They are going to have to prove that they can make up the difference when the gods of statistical probability insist that they lose an extra-inning game once in a while. They are going to have to win more four-run games to make up for the inevitably lower percentage of one-run victories they can depend upon after last year's otherworldly performance in close quarters....
Kevin CowherdColumn | Mar 31, 2013 | 4:24 PMLet's agree that the Orioles are saying all the right things as they get ready for Tuesday's season opener against the Tampa Bay Rays. They're saying last year's 93 wins were no fluke. They're saying they're hungrier than ever after finishing second in the American League East and making the playoffs for the first time since 1997. They're saying all this talk about "regressing to the mean" is hogwash and they'll be better than ever with all their experience and with Brian Roberts and Nolan Reimold...
Story | Mar 31, 2013 | 4:42 PMSARASOTA, Fla. — For most of the past two decades, the American League East has been considered the toughest division in baseball, primarily because it contained the sport's two financial behemoths, the New York Yankees and the Boston Red Sox. Each year since the wild-card spot was created in 1995, one of those two has made the playoffs. Eight times in those 17 years they've done it together. Ever so slightly, though, things have been shifting in the AL East. In 2008, the low-budget Tampa...
By Eduardo A. Encina , The Baltimore SunStory | Apr 1, 2013 | 5:29 PMST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Before Jason Hammel could become an Opening Day starter, he had to revisit his simpler days of pitching. Before the crowds, before the expectations, before worrying about his career and where he fit in, he needed to go back to the time when the game was free of distractions, when baseball wasn't much more complicated that throwing a ball through a tire in his backyard as a kid. The 30-year-old right-hander will start the Orioles' regular-season opener Tuesday afternoon...
Story | Apr 2, 2013 | 7:12 AMIt seems like only a few days ago that the Orioles were playing the Tampa Bay Rays with second place on the line. Oh, wait a minute, that really was only a few days ago, but the Orioles were trying to hold onto second place in the Grapefruit League standings. It actually seems like about six months since the O’s were here in Florida playing the final regular-season series of the year with their first playoff berth in 15 years hanging in the balance. So it begins again. When 2012 Cy Young Award...
