I'm pretty busy tonight so I'll make a roster later. But I could just say the '69 Orioles! Who I've heard many, many players on that team say was the best of them all. 109 wins...

But it's favorite players... and tailored to today's roster. Not a 7 man bench and 4 relievers, or whatever it was back then. 4 starters doing 300 innings...

A relative term but I have the O's replay on, into the 9th inning. Don't know who wins... Rolling cigarettes, and there's an EXPLOSION of youboob vids I want to watch tonight! I have 9 tabs open. Plus I have to get up in 5 hours for early work on Saturday.

Don't feel bad, my grandfather is still working and he could respond to this thread with "Manager: Jack Dunn".

I’ve only been following the Orioles since 2012, so I can’t contribute much, but my OF is Mclouth Jones Markakis, without a doubt.

Okay this is fun:

Position Players

C: Chris Hoiles: Long live the 1996 Ultimate Grand Slam.

1B: Rafael Palmeiro: Eddie was traded when I was one so I didn't really get to experience him and my username is a reference to how excited I was when we had Ripken-Alomar-Palmeiro as what I thought would be our Tinker-Evers-Chance in the 1995 offseason.

2B) Roberto Alomar: As I said, I was thrilled when we signed him from the Blue Jays in the 1995 offseason.

3B) Manny Machado: So fun to watch on defense. If only he had been healthy for the 2014 playoffs.

SS) Cal Ripken: He was my first favorite player as a kid.

LF: Brady Anderson: Named my childhood dog after him the year he hit 50!

CF: Adam Jones: The trade for him started the nice run we had from 2012-2016.

RF: Nick Markakis: Just a steady guy and easy guy to root for.

DH: Harold Baines: Doesn't belong in the HoF IMO but he was always a consistent hitter and I liked that he was from St. Michaels, Maryland near where we would cross the Bay Bridge.


Melvin Mora: Stood out on many otherwise forgettable teams. Crazy to think his quins are all grown up now and graduating high school like my youngest brother is.

Jonathan Schoop: Just loved his infectious smile and joy. Glad he's rebounding nicely with Minnesota this year and hopefully into a nice contract.

B.J Surhoff: Just did a little bit of everything and he too was part of the 1995 Offseason.

Matt Wieters: Saw his first home run at OPACY with my brothers and Dad. 


SP1: Mike Mussina: I was heartbroken and angry when he left for NYY but there was no Orioles pitcher I liked watching more.

SP2: Erik Bedard: Like Mora, he stood out on some bad teams and he was the piece that help start the 2012-16 revival.

SP3: Chris Tillman: I always had a soft spot for Tillman since he was the first Oriole to be younger than me and I was glad that he overcame some initial hiccups to be a servicable starter for a few years.

SP4: Scott Erickson: He wasn't as good as I remembered him but he was a big part of my childhood.

SP5: Wei Yin Chen: Our first major international signing:

CL: Zach Britton: That sinker and no Orioles closer was better in his prime.

SU: Jim Johnson: I always liked Jim since I got to see his debut when he was a starter. He got rocked hard but it was a fun game to watch.

RP: Arthur Rhodes: Not a star but always a good arm out of the pen

RP: Alan Mills: I'll always remember the Strawberry punch and it's nice that he is still with the organization.

RP: Darren O'Day: I was a submarine pitcher in LL and I loved chanting O'Day, O'Day, O'Day at games.

RP: Andrew Miller: Brach-Miller-Britton were almost a game over bullpen in the late summer and early fall of 2014. A pity that team didn't win the Pennant. Probably my favorite Orioles team ever.

Manager: Buck Showalter: I give the edge to Buck over Davey since he was here longer and he gave me winning Orioles baseball as an adult. The Davey two years were great but they were short and the team was filled with guys closer to my parents age than my age. Plus since I watched the pressers with Buck, I got to know Buck more than I did Davey I felt. 

GM: Pat Gillick:  Helped build the mid 90's teams that I breathed and died with. It was only a couple years but what a couple years those were for a 9 and 10 year old.
