@JoeTrezz
July 27, 2022

BALTIMORE -- For a rebuilding team like the Orioles, so many dreams are pinned on the MLB Draft. And so many of those dreams get tied up in team’s top picks, who historically result in disproportionate amounts of future value compared to other picks in the Draft. In this area,

@JoeTrezz
December 1, 2021

Over the first half of their nearly seven-decade history, the Orioles came to be known more for their pitching prowess than their position players. They had six American League Cy Young Award winners from 1969-1980, including four in a six-year stretch to close out that decade. So it makes sense

@JoeTrezz
December 1, 2021

When many people think of orioles, a group of New World birds in the blackbird family, one of the first associations they make is baseball. The next is probably Baltimore.

@JoeTrezz
December 1, 2021

Who wore it best? Uniforms have always been a reason we love baseball, with the numbers on the back, specifically, always serving as a way to connect with the players wearing them. Whether they’re randomly assigned or strategically acquired, numbers can become intrinsically tied to a player’s identity, sometimes as

Orioles' all-time retired numbers

December 1, 2021

BALTIMORE -- The Orioles have been quick to identify franchise-changing talent. And the six numbers they've retired reflect that, as the O's deserve some credit for putting these uniforms on ice at Camden Yards. Yes, being a surefire Hall of Famer is a tall task, but these half-dozen numbers (along

@JoeTrezz
