There are two distinct and plausible possibilities, and I'm not entirely sure which carries more truth: Have the Orioles given us a glimpse into their true character over the past couple of weeks? Or will the next couple of weeks provide a more accurate depiction of what this year's team is really like?
Don't look now, but the Orioles are showing promise. Hottest teams in baseball: the Boston Red Sox, the Houston Astros, A-Rod and the Orioles. With last night's 5-2 win, the Orioles have won seven of their past eight games.
