OriolesREACH providing donations for every stream/download of “Don’t Miss the Magic”

Inspiration comes in many forms. It came in the form of Hyun Soo Kim’s bat in the ninth inning last Wednesday in Toronto, which lifted the Orioles to a 3-2 comeback win over the Blue Jays. It came in the form of Kevin Gausman’s right arm on Sunday, as the young pitcher brilliantly shut down the Yankees in a 5-2 win in the Bronx. And ... read more

Matthew Taylor: A prescient preseason prediction for the O’s

It’s that time of year when Orioles fans look back on preseason projections and scoff at experts who predicted lots of losing in Baltimore. You might find yourself thinking, “Can you believe they actually wrote that?” as you recall that the Orioles were supposed to be a last-place bunch in the American League East this season.

Dillon Atkinson: Ramos’ injury opens the door for Wieters

In very unfortunate news for the player and team, Nationals catcher Wilson Ramos is out for the remainder of 2016 with a torn ACL. Ramos, 29, was having the best year of his career in 2016, which is his contract year.

And Mychal Givens started his minor league career as a shortstop, converting into a pitcher just three years ago. Brad Brach’s ... read more
