I don't have any concern about them coughing up the division, but I do have concern about the defense being compromised without Manny Machado in the the postseason.
Adam Jones has 101 strikeouts against 15 walks and he's still a great offensive weapon. He's a good illustration of how quality offensive players don't all have to be alike.
I'm worried about Manny Machado. He was really locked in, hitting .347/.387/.569 with eight doubles and eight homers in his past 36 starts. Good thing that silly "demotion" talk never came to fruition and I would hate to see him derailed for a while with another knee injury. Such an exciting young player.
How much better is Zach Britton than Jim Johnson and Grant Balfour this season? Fun storyline.
Can teams make a statement in July? I'm not sure. If so, the Orioles absolutely made one on that grueling West coast trip. I hear you loud and clear, O's.
Off to a 3-2 start on the toughest road trip of the year, even after a rare ninth-inning meltdown in the first game. Gee, who would've thought a Buck Showalter managed team would have some mental toughness (please note dripping sarcasm)?
Time to show us your mettle, O's. The start of the second half is a 10-game road trip to square off against the A's, Angels and Mariners.
Arbitrary endpoint goodness: Manny Machado is hitting .338/.361/.550 with five doubles and four homers in his last 19 games.
Steve Pearce is a revelation this season. Doesn't Buck Showalter have a great knack for always seeming to get at least one of these unexpected seasons from a veteran?
The organization's ability to develop frontline arms is a definite weakness, and it certainly doesn't help perception when a guy with the talent level of Kevin Gausman gets demoted to the minors just after he's starting to "get it" at the big-league level.
