Default How Good Are the 2023 Baltimore Orioles ???

o


I believe that the question of whether or not the 2023 Baltimore Orioles are for real has been answered ........ the question is, HOW REAL are these 2023 Birds ???


They are almost unquestionably as good as last year's solid, 83-79 team, who had a winning season in spite of being in the best division in baseball AND having had to play an unbalanced schedule in which almost half of their games (76) were against those intra-division rivals.


But are the Orioles about as good as last year's team, which would make them about an 86 or 87-win team with the easier, balanced schedule ???


Are the Orioles a little better than last year's team, which would make them about an 89 or 90-win team, and have them sitting on the playoff bubble ???


Or are the Orioles about a 94 or 95-win team, which would make them a bona-fide contender for an American League championship ???


Stayed tuned to find out, and buckle up and get ready to have some fun with these Birds ...... at the very least, they have made things interesting with their "style" of victories, more than half of which (14 out of 25) have been the come-from behind variety.

(STRANGE, BUT TRUE)



The first Orioles-Yankee game that I ever went to was at Yankee Stadium, in 1977. ) The score of that game was 14-2, in favor of the Yankees.

Hope you saw the homer run derby, the kid with the Os hit them from both sides of the plate. Wow

In 76 Plate Appearances with the New York Yankees this season, l Aaron Hicks l OPS'd .524 ...... in 187 Plate Appearances with the Baltimore Orioles this season, Aaron Hicks has OPS'd .860. The proverbial icing on this cake for the Birds is the fact that the Yankees are paying Hicks $10.3 Million for this season, while the Orioles are paying him $480,000.

A good faith move on the part of the Orioles ...... their star relief pitcher will be out for the entire 2024 season and part of the 2025 season, yet they still signed him to an extension for more money than they had to give him.

In the regular season, the Orioles did better than I thought, winning 101 games and the AL East title.

In the post-season, the Texas Rangers thoroughly kicked their asses.
