Orioles Flying High

Visit "All World All Sports"

-Digger's Daily-

Buck Showalter has re-invented Baltimore Orioles (4-0) baseball. Hustling, pitching, fielding, working counts and having fun. Buck's no nonsense approach is undefeated.

It's been a generation since Baltimore played respectable baseball before showing a glimmer of hope after Showalter took over late in 2010. Baltimore's surrendered a league low 4 runs through four games (1.00 ERA). Their bats have been doing just enough. Once heavy hitters break out the lumber things will get interesting in a hurry.

Just how good this team is remains to be seen. Lineup and defense are solid. All question marks revolve around O's starting rotation. So far so good. Let's see how they fare against Red Sox and Yankees lineups. Orioles first major litmus test is April 12 in the Bronx.
