Not Orioles related but...color commentary guys on broadcasts with no ties to the team has always struck me as being weird.

I just turned on the Angels/A's game and Mark Gubicza is doing the color commentary for the Angels broadcast team.  I remember him from his days as a Kansas City Royal.  Looked up his stats, he finished his career in Anaheim in 1997 with two games pitched and a 25.07 ERA.  So he's got the smallest of ties to the team but I'm pretty sure most everyone remembers him from his days in KC.

Other ones that come to mind:  when the Orioles had Buck Martinez doing the color commentary for 5 or 6 years, despite having no tie to this franchise. 

Ken Singleton, Yankees broadcasts.  No ties there whatsoever.  

Hawk Harrelson, while not a color commentator, is a former player and has no ties to the White Sox from his playing days.  Go figure, the biggest homer behind the mic also has no ties to the team he calls games for/roots for.

 

Here's a tie:
