    So yeah, the 2011 Orioles haven't hit rock bottom yet

    Simon, Orioles end skid with 6-5 win

    Guerrero lands on disabled list

    Promising Strop trying to find spot in Orioles' crowded bullpen
    Orioles right-hander Pedro Strop knows he exceeded all expectations when he joined the club last September. He also knows that goes only so far this spring — when the hard-throwing reliever is basically pitching for his Orioles life. The 26-year-...

    Orioles' bats remain quiet in 3-1 loss to Nats before sellout crowd
