Let second-half baseball begin!
Even though the Orioles were off for just a few days, for many fans, it seemed like much longer. Granted, with five Orioles being named to the American League All-Star team, it may not have seemed like such a long break given the black and orange at Citi Field.
Before we officially begin the second half of the season, we're looking back at the first few months. Holding a 53-43 record and in the middle of a very tight AL East race, the Orioles have surprised some people, especially in regards to numbers from Manny Machado and Chris Davis.
As we head off to watch the Orioles play the Rangers, we want to know: How would you rate the Orioles' season thus far? Have they exceeded your expectations? Overall, how would you grade their season? We have the answers to these questions from some fans below in our latest edition of "Yard Talk," but we also want to know what you think!
Weigh in with your grade for the Birds in the comments below.
