    It's time for the Orioles to put Ubaldo Jimenez in the bullpen

  • For the Orioles, the American League East is suddenly there for the taking

    Suddenly, it seems like it's all right there for the taking, and everyone — the Orioles, their fans and maybe even their closest competition — senses the leaves are going to turn orange and black in the fall. The Orioles moved to six games...

    As club prepares to honor its past, the Oriole Way reigns again
    On the final day of the 1991 season, the Orioles and their fans said goodbye to Memorial Stadium with an emotional celebration of everyone and everything that forged the bond between Baltimore and its beloved baseball team. There really wasn't a dry eye...

    Orioles continue to win, but offense needs to wake up soon

    Jacobs: Cespedes Fills Many Needs
    BOSTON — Boston already has Big Papi. So let's call Yoenis Cespedes the Big Need. The Red Sox needed power, especially right-handed pop. Cespedes had 17 home runs in Oakland in 2014. The entire Red Sox outfield has 14. It is a historical anemia...

    Maybe everyone was just too optimistic about the Orioles
    Maybe everybody just expected too much after the Orioles went on that free-agent spending spree in spring training and opened the season with such promise. The Las Vegas sports books picked the Orioles as barely a .500 team before the season, and a...

    Stop offering Samardzija money, OK, Theo?
    It's not that Jeff Samardzija would turn down $85 million from the Cubs, it's why would the Cubs offer him even that much? As an employee for the company that holds a 5 percent stake in the Chicago National League Ball Club, I need to know how stupid...

    Orioles' road to success this season has taken some strange turns
    The Orioles have spent a modest fraction of the 2014 season at the top of the American League East standings, but give them credit for great timing. They moved into first place by percentage points Thursday night and took sole possession of the division...
  • In ailing AL East, Orioles need to get wins while the getting is good

    It has become fairly obvious that the team that makes the playoffs out of the American League East — and there probably will be only one — will be the team that best weathers what has been a division race influenced by an unusual amount of...
  • When grading Orioles, it's finally time to judge them on current status

    When grading Orioles, it's finally time to judge them on current status
    Let's be honest. The hardest thing about evaluating the Orioles organization at the nonmathematical halfway point in the 2014 season is trying to do that without depending on the two most obvious measuring sticks. It would be easy to simply look at...
  • Sox playing well enough to make a deal

    While you were sleeping last night, and while you were sleeping through this Chicago baseball season, the White Sox became watchable. Or maybe it was while watching the Blackhawks, but whatever, the Sox not only won’t make you throw battery acid...
