Matthew Taylor: Remembering 1974, when the O's went on an historic streak

Last Friday, the Nationals' scoreless innings streak by starters ended at 48 innings when the Phillies' Cody Asche laced an RBI double against Max Scherzer. It was the longest scoreless inning streak in franchise history and the second-longest streak in baseball history to the 1974 Orioles. Two days later, the Orioles shut out the Cleveland Indians in both games of a doubleheader. The last time ... read more

Orioles' Travis Snider meets his biggest fan from Thailand

A pinch-hit grand slam in 2013 by then-Pittsburgh Pirate Travis Snider gave the Bucs a 5-3 lead over the Cubs. Beyond helping the Pirates eventually win 5-4, Snider's home run also had a much bigger, long-term effect: the birth of his superfan. Nine-year-old Wyatt Anthony said he called the grand slam right before it happened, and the big knock was what made Snider his favorite ... read more

Zach Wilt: Reacting to O's decision to DFA Delmon Young

For weeks, we have speculated. But on Wednesday afternoon, the tough decision was finally made. Dan Duquette opted to designate Delmon Young for assignment and added reliever Tyler Wilson to the Orioles roster. Unlike previous seasons, the Orioles roster is filled with players who are out of options, which forced the club to part with a guy who slashed .270/.289/.339 for them this season. Like ... read more

Hollis, 28, is an Eastern Shore resident and was chosen as the Contestant of the Game after entering non-winning Baseball Bucks scratch-offs into his My Lottery ... read more

Domenic Vadala: Playing roster roulette with the Orioles

Barring a trade or injury, the Orioles are probably going to have to risk losing at least one player this week by designating them for assignment. If they opt not to option Jonathan Schoop to the minors to continue his rehab, they'll potentially have to DFA a second player at some point. This is never easy, both from a personal and a business standpoint. The ... read more

Matt Kremnitzer: Is it time to dump Norris from the rotation?

The Orioles both receive and deserve credit for constantly working and reworking the fringes of the roster. They are again seeing the benefits of minor league signings like Chaz Roe, Chris Parmelee and Nolan Reimold, with the main goal being to eliminate the presence of bad players on the 25-man roster. Doing so can certainly be useful. If the O's are going to continue in ... read more
