For the second time in three years, the Orioles will open their home schedule against the Toronto Blue Jays, in a quest to make the postseason for the fourth time in six years. We know the matchup, but just for the sake of this blog, the Orioles are sending Kevin Gausman to the hill, and... Continue Reading →


Opening Day rosters will be set by noon. Here’s what to expect, and how we got here.

The MLB season begins today, as six teams begin their quest for a world championship trophy in October. The remaining 24 teams begin their journey tomorrow. For the Orioles, they are still needing to make their Opening Day roster official. The 25-man roster will need to be set by noon today, and without anything being officially announced...

Chris Tillman to miss at least five starts vs. AL East

Immediately after the Orioles, and their AAA affiliate Norfolk Tides, played to a 3-3 tie at Harbor Park yesterday. Buck Showalter had said that Chris Tillman could start his first game as early as May 2. That would put him on the mound to take on the Boston Red Sox, at Fenway Park. Buck also...

Trey Mancini is ready to contribute after making the Opening Day roster

After years of discussion the future is now

Yesterday, Orioles skipper Buck Showalter confirmed what most us had already assumed. Kevin Gausman will be getting the nod on Opening Day to pitch against the Toronto Blue Jays. This will be Gausman’s first Opening Day start, and after speaking with Roch Kubatko yesterday, you can already sense the excitement coming from the former first-round... Continue Reading →

Joey Rickard’s situation is one of those rare, “good” problems to have

If you're amidst an 0-20 slump, and can't seem to buy a hit, you may have a problem. If you get picked off first base, and haven't been able to read the movement on a fastball, you may have a problem. If you have a pitcher that can't locate his 95-mph fastball, and it rides... Continue Reading →

The fifth spot in the rotation could be narrowed between three candidates

It shouldn't come as a surprise that there is some good competition for that all important fifth spot in the Orioles starting rotation. They won't need a fifth starter until they travel north of the border on April 15 to take on the Blue Jays, but manager Buck Showalter would love to get this thing... Continue Reading →
