It's remarkable that they've been able to hang in first place for so long with such a bad rotation (only the Twins have a worse rotation ERA in the AL), but that's a testament to a powerful offense, great bullpen and the wizardry of Buck Showalter.

They've played 47 games at home (33-14) and 40 on the road (18-22). Having seven more road games moving forward could well cost them their two-game lead, but it's hard to bet against Buck Showalter.

The Blue Jays in the rearview mirror in the AL East seem to be getting awfully big and worrisome, eh?

The Orioles have hit 54 home runs in June, which is only one short of the MLB record (A's, 1996). Given that there are still two games left in June and this team is almost laughably powerful, I like the O's chances.

When you have your "best closer in baseball" arguments, don't leave Zach Britton out. He is nasty and is now in his third season of elite-level production.

I realize I talk a lot about Manny Machado, but I refuse to slow down until he's mentioned in the same breath as the likes of Bryce Harper and Mike Trout. My latest attempt? Manny is on pace to hit .307/.375/.606 with 64 doubles and 44 home runs. He's 23 years old. He's one of baseball's best defenders. This is ridiculous.

Is there enough being said about Mark Trumbo's season at the plate? Probably not. He leads the majors with 20 homers, sure, but he's hitting .299 with a .351 on-base percentage compared to career marks of .250 and .300, respectively, heading into the season. He's made himself a much more complete hitter.

They started 7-0, followed with a 9-12 stretch, won seven more in a row and have gone 5-10 since. It's getting about time for another seven-gamer, no? Look like they're gonna need those to stay in the race.

Polar opposite of last season, it doesn't appear that there will be any top-tier arms available via trade this coming July. That's too bad, because the Orioles could use one. They could be scary with that power and bullpen if there was a frontline ace in a postseason series in front of Chris Tillman and Kevin Gausman.

Two different seven-game winning streaks before the mid-point of May (yes, their seventh win in the second streak came on May 14) is amazing. That's 14-0 cleared before even thinking of the other 23 games (through Tuesday).
