Earlier last week, we looked at the potential starting lineup and rotation of the Baltimore Orioles in 2023, a time when we should see the new wave of talent that Mike Elias has been promising us.
The Orioles came into the 2021 season with the knowledge of a rebuild still in progress. Our pitching was supposed to find a little bit of stability with John Means, Dean Kremer, and Keegan Akin covering three spots in the rotation, but what about the other spots?
It’s the Battle of the Birds part two! The Orioles traveled up to the make shift home of the Toronto Blue Jays, currently playing in Buffalo, for a four-game series this past weekend.
The Orioles had the chance to host the Blue Jays for the first time this season. After a very tough fought series, the O’s eventually dropped this three-game set, one that could be deemed as a home run derby for the Orioles.
Another series down, another collection of woes for the Orioles. This four-game set in Cleveland was one any Oriole fan would love to forget.
The last time the Orioles played the Indians, the offense looked like they could beat the 1970 Orioles starting rotation with four 20-game winners. In the five games since that series, the Oriole offense has only put up 18 runs combined.
The Orioles headed into this three-game series tied for the league’s worst record with the team they were set to face, the Minnesota Twins. Now, the O’s officially have the worst record in the majors.
Finally, the Orioles played someone in the A.L. East other than the Red Sox or Yankees. The Tampa Bay Rays came to town for a three-game set, their first three meetings this season.
The Yankees came into Baltimore to reek havoc on the Birds, and they did just that. Well, in the first two games at least.
The Orioles had a chance to break even after a successful road trip. However, the Boston Red Sox and their A.L.-East-leading record stood in the way in this four-game home stand for the Birds.
The Orioles continue their road trip out west, following an impressive series win against a very good Oakland Athletics team. Now with three games against the Mariners next on the schedule, the Orioles have a good chance to make this a very successful road trip.
The Yankees came to visit Camden Yards for the first time this season, and it was a hard fought series for the O’s, who came away with two separate one-run victories in this set.
After an opening series sweep of the Boston Red Sox, the Orioles headed south for a showdown with Gerrit Cole and the New York Yankees.
After a clean sweep in Boston, the Orioles head to the Bronx for a three-game set against “The Evil Empire”, the New York Yankees.
O’, happy Monday! Our favorite day of the week is back, and so is Monday Thoughts on The Baltimore Battery. The Orioles have their first of two off days this spring, creating a perfect time for some O’s talk!
Hello, Birdland! The Baltimore Battery’s Monday Thoughts column is back! Going into the 2021 season, we will deliver weekly news and updates, as well as insight on what we think the Orioles should be doing on and off the field. Basically, anything that interests us, we’ll talk about it!
The 2020 MLB season was one we have never experienced before, and as fans and players alike, we hope it’s one we never see again. However, baseball was still played, and here at The Baltimore Battery, we have come to give readers an extensive breakdown of the 2020 Baltimore Orioles’ season!
Coming into the four-game series against the New York Yankees, the Orioles sat at 16-20 and had lost their last 18 to the Evil Empire. After trading away Mychal Givens, Miguel Castro and Tommy Milone, the Orioles pitching staff was looking much different.
Up next on The Baltimore Battery Prospect Profiles Countdown is right-handed pitcher, Dean Kremer.
In order to avoid the Rule 5 draft on December 12, the Orioles have selected the contracts of Ryan Mountcastle, Keegan Akin, Dean Kremer, and Ryan McKenna.
