Going into next season, there's a lot to look forward to. Chicks dig the long ball, and the Orioles are comfortably leading the majors in homers. Chris Davis, with his Major League-best 52 home runs and counting, has gone from tantalizing to terrific. In addition to the big bat, he could earn his first Gold Glove this year and will be hard to ignore in the conversation for MVP. There isn't a first baseman in baseball the Orioles would trade him for, and at 27, he's just heading into his most productive years. Adam Jones, 28, and locked up through 2018, proved the wisdom of the $85.5 million contract extension he signed last year by repeating his breakthrough stats from last season and earning another All-Star trip, his third overall, and second in as many years. With Markakis and McLouth at the corners, the outfield looks solid across the board. There's still that hole at second base, but with Wieters still around for at least another year, catcher is a strength, J.J. Hardy continues to quietly kill it at short, and next year should be the one where Manny Machado really comes into his own. He's already the best fielding third basemen in the game, but expect his solid bat to become a true standout.
