Orioles minor league recap 5/25: Delmarva continues their run of excellence

Every Orioles affiliate won on Friday night, except for the Norfolk Tides.

Bowie Baysox 3, Erie SeaWolves 1

Shortstop Mason McCoy stayed hot at the plate for Bowie, going 3-for-5 with an RBI from the leadoff spot to raise his average to .397. Austin Hays started in right field and batted third, going 1-for-4 with a walk, an RBI, three strikeouts and a stolen base. First baseman Preston Palmeiro went 3-for-4 but is still hitting under .200. Catcher Martin Cervenka hit his second home run of...

Saturday’s Bird Droppings: Where the Orioles can’t stop losing

It’s been more than a week since the Orioles last won a baseball game.

Good morning, Birdland!

It’s been more than a week since the Orioles last won a game. That’s a long time. The earth keeps spinning, and things change. Here what has happened since the O’s last earned a win:

-Game of Thrones ended.

-People have freaked out over the ending of Game of Thrones.

-The Golden State Warriors qualified for the NBA Finals.

-The new live action Aladdin movie was released.

-The British Prime...

Orioles live by the home run, die by the home run, succumb to Rockies in the ninth, 8-6.

The team’s trip west kicked off with a lot of offense, a decent start by John Means, and yet another bullpen collapse in the late innings.

Q: What happens when two bad pitching staffs meet up at Coors Field?

A: (You know this one…) Dongs. Dongs. And more dongs. Seven, to be exact. These two teams lead their respective leagues in home runs allowed, and though the Rockies aren’t chasing history like the O’s, both lineups were hacking like lumberjacks today.

In the battle of bad...

Orioles move Dan Straily to bullpen

Righty Dan Straily is being shifted into the bullpen, the Orioles informed reporters including Roch Kubatko of MASNsports.com (via Twitter). It isn’t yet known who’ll step into his spot in the rotation. This move wasn’t hard to see coming. The O’s added Straily for a low price at the outset of the year, with the idea that he’d help solidify the rotation. Unfortunately, that has just not happened. While the 30-year-old has been a sturdy rotation piece for several years now, he has...

Friday night Orioles game thread: vs Rockies, 8:40

Fresh off a sweep at home, Baltimore looks for the magic formula to keep the ball in the yard at homer-happy Coors Field.

The O’s head west to face the Rockies coming off a 1-9 skid over their last ten games. At 15-35, they’re now a season-worst 17.5 games back of first in the AL East. If you’ve been living under a rock, well, I congratulate you. This was a great week to sit out.

The idea of the historically homer-prone O’s trying to stop the barrage at Coors Field, of all places,...

Brandon Hyde says that Keon Broxton will get a long look in center for Orioles

DENVER-Keon Broxton, who the Orioles acquired from the New York Mets on Wednesday, is batting sixth and playing center field on Friday night. Broxton had been designated for assignment by the Mets, for whom he hit .143 in 34 games and traded for $500,000 in International Bonus Slot money. His reaction was ‘just pure joy.  I was excited just getting an opportunity to come out here and do what I love to do. I’m just ready to go. I can’t wait for tonight, for the game to start. Get back...

Orioles 2017 draft review: In search of the next good starting rotation

The Orioles starting rotation has not been very good for several seasons. Maybe some 2017 draftees can help them.

For several seasons now, the Orioles have had a very bad starting rotation. This was not a fresh problem that only cropped up in 2018, the last year of Dan Duquette’s tenure in charge of this team. They were bad in 2017 and in 2016 as well. The grand rebuilding plan of Mike Elias did not involve trying to fix this problem with new players at the MLB level for 2019, so here we...

Orioles pitcher Andrew Cashner will consider sitting out if he’s traded

Andrew Cashner could be the most likely trade candidate on a Baltimore Orioles team that is rebuilding and once again nowhere near contention, and the right-hander does not have a no-trade clause. That does not, however, mean he is ready to accept playing for his sixth team in 10 MLB seasons. Despite the Orioles having just 15 wins, Cashner told Dan Connolly of The Athletic this week that he is extremely happy in Baltimore. So happy, in fact, that he is not ruling out sitting out the rest of...

Orioles-Rockies series preview: The O’s face an unfamiliar foe

The Orioles kick off their interleague schedule with their first trip to Coors Field in 15 years.

Man, I sure am tired of the Orioles giving up so many home runs. Well, maybe they’ll have more luck in their next destination... (checks notes) ... COORS FIELD?? Aw, crap.

Yes, the O’s, already on pace to demolish all records for homer-allowing, now have to play three games in one of the most infamously homer-friendly ballparks in the majors. Welcome to Colorado.

The Orioles have played only...

A guide for the forlorn: how to root for the Orioles right now

It’s a really tough time to be an Orioles fan. So here are some survival tips harvested from the experts.

SURGEON GENERAL’S WARNING: Rooting for a losing sports team may be hazardous to your health. It can raise your risk of depression and heart attacks, make you more likely to eat fatty foods or commit violent acts, and it may also lower your testosterone (uh, guess I can deal).

There’s losing, and then there’s losing. As an Orioles fan, this has been one the worst weeks I can...

Orioles minor league recap 5/24: Delmarva rolls while Frederick works overtime

Keys rally to prevail in extras and Shorebirds win going away, but Tides fall in Norfolk.

Durham (Rays) 9, Norfolk Tides 5

A 5-4 game turned in the Bulls’ favor when Durham scored two runs in the fifth and then two more in the sixth to take a 9-4 lead.

It was a tough game team-wise, but there were a few highlights. Cedric Mullins hit his third home run, a solo shot in the ninth inning, and outfielder DJ Stewart went 2-for-3 and is now batting .307. Ryan Mountcastle went 2-for-5 and his...

Friday Bird Droppings: Where nothing is going right for the Orioles

The Orioles got swept at home by the Yankees and have 15 wins in their first 50 games. Just 112 more to go!

Good morning, Camden Chatters.

Aren’t you so glad the Orioles got to come home for the last four games? Their disastrous series against the Yankees included a game in which they blew a ninth-inning lead, a game in which they gave up 11 runs, a game in which they gave up five homers, and then — in the piece de resistance yesterday afternoon — an unsightly defeat in which they...

Orioles lose to Yankees, water is wet

The Pope is Catholic, a bear does his business in the woods, etc.

I believe it was the wise philosopher Thanos who once said, “I am inevitable.”

Even he wasn’t as inevitable as an Orioles loss to the Yankees this afternoon, a result that was seemingly etched in stone long before either team took the field.

This isn’t even a competition. The Yankees can always deliver the big hit, or the clutch RBI, while the Orioles always manage to do exactly the wrong thing at exactly the wrong...

Orioles exploring market for rotation depth

Although the Orioles are predictably at the bottom of the AL East as they embark on the first full season of their rebuild, the team’s front office is also looking at various ways to add some starting pitching depth, writes MASNsports.com’s Roch Kubatko. Alex Cobb and Nate Karns were recently moved to the 60-day injured list, while right-hander Dan Straily and David Hess have been hit particularly hard, leaving the club particularly thin at the moment. Despite the struggles of Straily...

Thursday afternoon Orioles game thread: vs. Yankees, 12:35

The O’s have to play the Yankees again. Well, here goes nothing.

I have good news for you, folks. After today, the Orioles don’t have to play the Yankees for three months.

I think all of us are more than ready for a break from those pinstriped ruffians, who have won eight games in a row over the Orioles, including all six at Camden Yards this year. We’re especially tired of seeing Gleyber Torres and Gary Sanchez, who have combined for 19 home runs against the O’s this year. Torres...

Orioles 2016 draft review: Still waiting for Austin Hays

Three years later, there are three 2016 Orioles draft picks still worth having hopes for.

Some day, the Orioles are going to be good again. I take this as an article of faith even after the current series against the Yankees might understandably make people feel like this ongoing disaster will never end. This latest O’s dark era will be over sooner if the Dan Duquette-drafted holdovers can become useful players for the Orioles.

Yesterday, I wrote about the 2015 draft and whether it might...
