They've had fast starts off and on for the last several years. They will burn out. Too many good teams in that division. Im a huge ripen fan, so I've always had a soft spot for them, but I don't expect much. The Yanks, Six, Rays and even toronto make it a nightmare for them.

Lifelong O's fan here. The last 14 years have been very rough. I'll be thrilled with a .500+ season :lol:
Like luvmeZ28 said, they've started strong in the past only fall quickly into last place. This year however... they finally have decent pitching and the bats to back it up! I think the season (as in good/bad) will be decided in the next few weeks.

They will definitely take some wins away from the other jokers in the division. Them and the blue jays both could make that an interesting race this year.

I lost interest since Ripken retired due to Angelos but its nice to see them off to a nice start. They seem to fizzle later in the year and its a tough division for sure.

Ive been a orioles fan all my life living right outside of Baltimore and playing baseball.
With that being said they have started off hot before and burnout quickly. The bullpen has improved the most though from past seasons so we will see if they can keep it up.

The Orioles are cool. As a little kid they were my favorite team. Broke my heart when they lost the '69 series to the Mets.
