Chris Davis’ Strikeouts Just Keep on Coming; Should Orioles Be Concerned?

The Major League Baseball single season record for most strikeouts by a hitter is 223, set by Mark Reynolds in 2009. If Chris Davis has anything to say about it, that record will be a distant memory come the final day of the season. The Orioles first baseman, only two years removed from hitting 53 home runs, is on pace for a whopping 272 strikeouts. So far this season, Davis has...

Baltimore Orioles: Starting Rotation Needs to Step up for Birds

Eighteen games into the 2015 season, Baltimore Orioles’ starting pitchers have registered four, count ’em, four quality starts. While there is some debate to the merit of the quality start statistic (to me, it is right up there with the hold in terms of useless baseball stats only used to give agents something to do when trying to pump up a player’s value), there is no denying...

Prospect Watch: Orioles’ Dariel Alvarez

At 26 years old, Orioles’ outfield prospect Dariel Alvarez is somewhat overlooked due to his age. MLB.com did not even list him in the Orioles Top 30 list at the start of the season, but the Cuban outfielder does have the potential to be an important part of the Orioles’ future. When the Orioles signed Alvarez out of Cuba, his bat was viewed as a potential weakness among the...

Fantasy Roundup: Sanchez, Paredes, Carter

Last week I wrote about Aaron Sanchez’s struggles and since I’m a sucker for young pitching I watched his start last night against the Orioles. If you don’t look at the walk column you would say he pitched a pretty good game. However, it’s difficult to ignore the seven walks. In all of his starts fastball command has eluded him, but last night his command was the worst of...

Adam Jones showing why he is the face of the O’s franchise

  Adam Jones & Steve Pearce – Photo Credit – Keith Allison Adam Jones is the undisputed leader of the Baltimore Orioles. There’s no question about it.

Buy Buck Showalter’s Fancy Texas Mansion — $2.95 Million

When I look at Baltimore Orioles manager Buck Showalter, the first thing that pops to mind isn’t usually, “Now that’s a man who looks like he has impeccable taste.” But hey, when you’re making six figures annually for managing a baseball team, you can just hire people to take care of interior decoration. For instance, take a look through the Dallas home Buck currently...

Ryan Lavarnway's Bittersweet Return To Fenway

 (US Presswire)In 2008, the Red Sox selected him in the 6th round out of Yale. He was supposed to be a mainstay behind the plate at Fenway for years—maybe even an heir apparent to Jason Varitek. But things got complicated for Ryan Lavarnway. The offensive potential never materialized and he drifted in the Boston system for years. Other catching prospects moved ahead of him. Finally...
