Power Rankings
Chris Davis only has the same number of home runs as Madison Bumgarner and Gio Gonzalez have. Then again, he only has one fewer than the Royals.
Chris Tillman: Ace.
I love their power, but I still don't like that starting rotation at all. No, not even Chris Tillman (as an ace? Nope) or Ubaldo Jimenez -- who needs to be good for longer than 12 starts to make me love him.
Crush. Freaking. Davis.
Preseason Ranking: 13. Their unsustainable record in one-run games last year helped them to the playoffs. This year their 17-28 mark in one-run games will keep them out.
Task for the offseason: Frontline starting pitching. What they have just isn't enough in the mighty AL East. Unfortunately, the best the free-agent class has to offer are Matt Garza, Hiroki Kuroda and Ervin Santana.
Yes, the Orioles do end up with a winning record but don't make the playoffs. Chris Davis ends with 55-plus homers, but doesn't get to 60.
They love to swing with power. The Orioles rank first in the majors in homers (by 18), while sitting 26th in strikeouts and 28th in walks. Wow.
Danger zone. The Orioles have dropped six of their past eight. AL playoff race is too tough for that to happen.
