This year, Dan Duquette promised to be proactive and he delivered on that promise with the pre-winter meetings deal for Mark Trumbo, who probably isn't going to make anyone forget Chris Davis if the Orioles lose the bidding war for this year's team MVP but would be a reasonable facsimile under the circumstances.
The Texas Rangers are not the homer-happy club that they were during their glory years a few seasons ago, ranking fifth of 15 American League teams this year.

But the timing was perfect for the Orioles, who scored two runs through monsoon-like rain in the bottom of the sixth, then held on following a two-hour, 14-minute rain delay for a 4-3 win over the Los Angeles Angels that was completed just 10 minutes before midnight.
With the opportunity to end their three-city, 11-game West Coast road trip with a series win in Anaheim, the Orioles overcame an early two-run deficit to beat the Angels 8-4 on Sunday afternoon at Angel Stadium.
