This July 31 is no different, as Baltimore Orioles superstar Manny Machado will likely be in a new uniform by the end of the month. Where he will end up is tough to say, but a few teams...

The Manny Machado era could have been even better for the Orioles

It’s nearly time for the Baltimore faithful to say goodbye to their talented shortstop.

Manny Machado’s time as a Baltimore Oriole is almost over. Everyone knows it. Reporters are indicating that trade discussions are entering their finals stages, Machado was removed from Sunday’s game as “a precaution” and the MASN broadcast crew told him “good luck” at the conclusion of their most recent post-game interview. It appears that the 26-year-old’s start at the All-Star Game later...

Orioles beat Rangers 6-5 in what may be last game for Machado, Britton, others

Machado homered, Britton got the save and Jones had a three-run double. Ah, it was like old times again.

The Orioles capped off the first half of the 2018 season with a 6-5 series-clinching victory over the Texas Rangers at Camden Yards on Sunday in what may prove to be the swan song for several of the team’s high-profile players.

Things did not begin very well for Orioles spot starter Miguel Castro. Following three consecutive walks to kick-off the game, Castro struck out Rougned Odor,...

Orioles pull Machado mid-game, sparking rampant speculation

Sunday’s game between the Texas Rangers and Baltimore Orioles featured a rain delay. After the delay, Baltimore shortstop Manny Machado was pulled from the game. Normally, a mid-July game between two last-place teams wouldn’t draw much attention in the social media world. But given how constant Machado trade rumors have been and that the most recent reports have indicated that a deal is close, this move did not go ignored. Ultimately, though, this was just a precautionary measure. With...

Orioles minors recap 7/15: Cedric Mullins keeps being awesome

Only one of the Orioles top five affiliates was a winner on Saturday night. Outfielders Cedric Mullins and Ryan McKenna still had good games for themselves.

Gwinnett (Braves) 4, Norfolk Tides 3

Let’s start with the good news: Cedric Mullins was 2-5 with a double and has OPSed over .800 in 38 games since getting promoted to the Tides. If Adam Jones gets traded, he could be the Orioles center fielder for the rest of the season. I’d be sad if Jones got traded, but it would be exciting to...

Orioles score just one run, still somehow beat Rangers

The Orioles’ offense was again mostly quiet, but the Birds’ pitching staff picked up the slack with a five-pitcher shutout.

The Orioles are quite bad. This we know. For the majority of the season, they have been bad at hitting, pitching, and fielding alike.

Once in a while, though, one of those facets comes through with a gem, temporarily outweighing the badness of the other two. Tonight was one of those nights, as the O’s pitching staff delivered its fifth shutout of the season to...

Adam Jones on potential post-Orioles future: 'it’s my family’s decision'

Given his status as a pending free agent, center fielder Adam Jones is an obvious trade candidate for an Orioles team with no hope of competing this season. However, as a 10-and-5 player (10 years of MLB service time, five in a row with the same team), Jones would be able to block a trade anywhere. The 32-year-old spoke about his future Friday, saying (via Roch Kubatko of MASNsports.com) that “it’s my family’s decision.” Jones noted that back when he signed his $85.5M extension...
