3. A full season of Manny Machado at third base
Who said it was hard to play in the major leagues? Well, Manny Machado sure made it look relatively easy as he joined the Orioles last season in the middle of a playoff race. In 51 games during the regular season, Machado batted .262 with seven home runs and 26 RBIs. He struggled a bit in the playoffs against the New York Yankees, going 2-for-16 (.125), but he hit a home run in the Game 3 loss at Yankee Stadium. It'll be interesting to see what he does for an encore in his first full season in the major leagues.
