Today we start off with the Baltimore Orioles

The Orioles have a new logo (or old technically) and a new general manger. New GM Dan Duquette is looking to make the O’s a contender once again. It’s going to be a very difficult task though as the O’s are nowhere near competing in the powerhouse AL East. The Orioles have a decent offensive lineup and will be looking to guys like Nick Markakis and Matt Wieters to lead the team’s offensive charge. The big question though is their young pitching staff which in 2011 was very inconsistent. Guys like Brian Matuz, Zach Britton, and Jake Arietta are all 3 going to be able to perform consistently and effectively if the O’s want to have any chance in the AL East.

 

Overall The Orioles may surprise some people if they can stay healthy, but I see the Orioles once again at the bottom of the AL East in 2012.
