Baltimore Orioles’ Ubaldo Jimenez Will Have Breakout Performance Against Toronto Blue Jays

Ubaldo Jimenez

When the Baltimore Orioles signed Ubaldo Jimenez to a huge four-year contract worth $50 million this offseason, it was expected he’d pitch more like an ace than a bottom-of-the-rotation starter, but through two starts, that’s not the case.

Baltimore Orioles’ Buck Showalter Needs to Control Undisciplined Team

Buck Showalter

Should there be concern about the Baltimore Orioles? Sure, they had their way with the New York Yankees Tuesday winning 14-5, but they had  – yet again — another day of poor base running and undisciplined play.

Baltimore Orioles: Matt Wieters’ Hot Start Could Signal Breakout Season At The Plate

Matt Wieters

Will 2014 finally be the year that Matt Wieters reaches what some people believe his full potential is?

Bottom of the Order Blues Continue to Doom Baltimore Orioles

Jonathan Schoop

Without Manny Machado and J.J. Hardy in the Baltimore Orioles‘ lineup, Buck Showalter has had to use Steve Lombardozzi, Ryan Flaherty and Jonathan Schoop all at the same time.

The cliché that it’s still early is very […]

Baltimore Orioles Need Bud Norris to Have Quality Start Today to Rest Bullpen

Bud Norris

The problem that people kept bringing up throughout the offseason was that the Baltimore Orioles‘ starting rotation isn’t good enough to compete in the powerhouse that is the American League East.
