This Orioles squad obiously isn't a playoff team, and really isn't that close yet.
However I think that we win way more games then a lot of people thing we do this year. I think we very realistically could win 70+ games this year. Our lineup with Mancini, Alberto, Hayes, Santander, Mountcastle, etc will be better then last years roster was. The key obviously will be pitching. I just don't see how the pitching can possibly be any worse then last year. Crazy excited to watch the prospects coming up and competing this year.
I’d guess that by today they’re being pretty competitive. They used to have 1-2 intrasquad games right before the ST games started. They don’t seem to be doing that this year but I’d still assume the pitchers are at full go, more or less.
Just wanted to give everyone a heads up, the O's have released a couple hundred Opening Day tickets starting at $35 plus fees.
There are plenty of other unsold tickets that are visible to season plan holders, but only a couple hundred are available publicly for now.
In the time it took me to type this, all the $35 tickets were sold, I can't imagine the secondary market for Opening Day to be that strong, but someone out there must think there is money to be made.
