Orioles fans focus on drastic turnaround that continues

The Baltimore Orioles have recently begun to focus on the international market and made a big leap forward in the player development department last year, especially on the pitching side.

These are two of the reasons that may explain one of the most incredible turnarounds in recent American sports history.

The Orioles went from 52 wins in 2021 to 83 (!) in 2022.

That’s a difference of 31 games year over year which is really hard to believe and 100% worth celebrating.

After a few years there, the Orioles finally came out of the AL basement and actually fought for a playoff spot.

They didn’t, but it was really refreshing and encouraging to see them participating in this campaign.

The best is yet to come.

“The Orioles’ road to the 2023 World Series begins…NOW!!!!!” Orioles blogger Matt Kremnitzer tweeted.

That’s 100% true: the road to the Fall Classic, or to success to speak in more general terms, will depend on what the franchise does in the offseason.

They need to bring talent to really compete and have a good chance of making the playoffs.

Kremnitzer said in replies that he tweets the same phrase every year, but hasn’t felt this optimistic in years.

The Orioles have a ton of controllable young talent ready for MLB in Adley Rutschman, Austin Hays, Felix Bautista, Dean Kremer, Keegan Akin, Spenser Watkins, Ryan Mountcastle, Gunnar Henderson and many more.

After many years in obscurity, it’s time for them to shine.

If the Orioles make a few hard-hitting free agent additions or a really relevant trade for an established star, watch out.
