2005 was the stuff of legends man. They should make a movie about that season. 

Aren’t there already enough horror movies released these days?

That season was a complete kick to the crotch and I wanted to fast forward to the end by mid August.

It was a heck of a lot better than 2000-2009.  2012 was a truly great year, and 2014 wasn't bad, either. And hopefully we look back at '19 as the year we finally got on track to having a top-to-bottom modern organization for the first time since the 1970s.

I’m hoping that in 5 years I’ll look back and say 2017-18 were worth it because that collapse forced us to totally remake the organization into the winner we are today.   But right now I’m in the “hope” phase.

90's.   Camden Yards opens in 1992, 89-73 third place finish.   Averaged well over 3m in attendance throughout the decade, leading  MLB.  Highest payroll with top players wanting to play in OPACY.  Ripken Sep 6 1995.  Playoffs 96-97. Five of the ten years winning record but should have been more if it weren't for two pitching coaches - Phil Regan and Ray Miller managing the team - 95, 98, 99 + run differentials (95 +64!) and managed to finish 71-73, 79-83 and 78-84 respectively.   Strike impacted 1994 and 1995, Ripken "saved" baseball.   Amazing crowds every night, the newest and best stadium in baseball, in sports, so much was lost in the 2000-2010 decade that followed.

1966-1983....Orioles with best record in all of MLB for those years...no better era possible. 

 

And for the MOMENT of the decade...easy for me.   And one of the top alltime moments in Os history.

Great thread and info. 

Kind of surprising how middle of the road some of the individual bests were. Hard to believe Alberto has the highest BA of the decade.

Great thread, always fun to look back on a decade and get some perspective.  Interesting/cool that three of the major contributors - Davis, Jones, and Tillman - were acquired when the Orioles were "sellers."  Hoping some of the pieces we got at the 2018 trade off (Kremer, Diaz, Bannon, Zimmermann, Tate(?)) can be on this list at the end of 2029.

Andino in 2011 has to rank somewhere up there as well, even though it was a losing season.

2010-19: 755-865

TOTAL: 5,311-5,169

 

Prior Baltimore teams deemed Major League, or almost in the case of the National Association:

1872-74 (including both the NA Canaries and the 0-6 Marylands): 78-85

1882-89: 403-519

1890-99: 730-530

1901-02: 118-153

1914-15 (Federal League Terrapins): 131-177

Total of 1329-1287.

I would love to post the comprehensive records of the 1903-53 minor league Orioles, but bb-ref doesn't help much there.  I think those records may be in Baseball in Baltimore the First 100 Years by James Bready, which I have at home.  I'm guessing the 1920s IL Orioles had a better record than the 1970s Orioles.

Ranked by decade winning percentages (none counting ties):

1970s: .590
1890s: .579
1960s: .566
1980s: .5125
1990s: .5119
1870s: .479
2010s: .466
1950s: .439
1880s: .437
1900s: .435
2000s: .434

Grand total of all Baltimore MLB teams: 6640-6456 (.507)

Wikipedia was my friend:

(Still looking for records of the 1903-09 EL Orioles)

1910s EL/IL Orioles: 737-582 (.559)
Add in the Federal League Terrapins and they were 868-759 (.533)

1920s IL Orioles went 1035-621 (.625).  They were over 100 wins from 1920-1926.

1930s: 776-757 (.506)

1940s: 719-813 (.469)

1950-53: 306-306 (.500)

I really didn't start following the O's daily until '89.  So in that context, the 90's and 10's are the main comparison. 

90's for overall W/L were far better, Camden was the best ticket in baseball, and Ripken was the toast of baseball.

10's were probably more exciting, coming out of a long dormant period, some incredibly memorable games (Andino walk-off, Ripken statue game, Wild Card, Game #2 '12 ALDS, Delmon double), and being able to follow some sure fire future Orioles HOFers like Jones.

Overall, I can't complain too much about the 10's.  We had our ups and downs for sure.  But 3-4 playoff appearances a decade, i'll take that.  Hopefully some of them end in a parade in the 20's.

By my count (which is probably off by a trivial amount), 256 players wore the Black and Orange at some point during the decade: 127 position players and 129 pitchers.    The highest number in a single season was 58, in 2019.    That included the highest number of pitchers, 34, excluding the four position players who also took the mound last season.    The largest number of position players was 28, in 2018.   The lowest in a single season was 44, and unsurprisingly, that was in 2014.    The O’s only used 20 pitchers that year, the low for the decade, and only 7 pitchers started a game (including TJ McFarland, who made one spot start).     The fewest position players used was 21, in 2016.

Of the 256 players who got into a game for the Orioles this decade, only 64 played in 100+ games -- 43 position players and 21 pitchers.   Of those, only 26 played in 200+ games  -- 19 position players and 7 pitchers.   Here's that honor roll (WAR in parenthesis):

Jones 1362 (26.9)

Davis 1135 (14.8)

Hardy 889 (16.1)

Machado 860 (31.0)

Wieters 786 (16.6)

Markakis 739 (8.6)

Schoop 635 (11.5)

Mancini 462 (5.9)

Flaherty 452 (1.6)

Trumbo 407 (1.4)

Joseph 402 (4.5)

Britton 397 (11.0)

O'Day 391 (11.5)

Reimold 347 (-0.2)

Rickard 317 (1.2)

Pearce 291 (6.8)

Reynolds 290 (1.0)

Brach 288 (6.1)

Givens 284 (6.4)

Andino 282 (3.0)

Matusz 272 (1.6)

J. Johnson 240 (6.9)

Hunter 224 (3.3)

Villar 216 (5.3)

Nunez 211 (2.4)

McLouth 201 (2.8)

The 200 game threshold isn't really fair to starting pitchers, so here's a list of total starts for every pitcher who started 50+ games for the O's this decade.   There aren't a lot of them.

Tillman 193 (8.9)

Gausman 150 (10.4)

Chen 117 (9.8)

Jimenez 104 (0.5)

Bundy 103 (6.9)

Gonzalez 95 (7.5)

Guthrie 64 (6.2)

Arrieta 63 (0.1)

Matusz 61 (1.6)

* WAR includes relief appearances

    • Yellow is the only one you know for certain ends well. 
    • It's nuts how good we were in 2014 without Machado, Davis and Wieters. We still lose if the McClouth home run is called fair I think it was fine to use Ubaldo there, but Buck should have had a quicker hook It's down to Machado and Keeping Cruz over Davis. I think you have to believe we're World Series champions with Machado in 2014 to make that choice, and I can't say for sure that we would have been. I think I have to go with keeping Cruz over Davis, because it might have prevented the 2016 Ubaldo fiasco since Davis was awful in that game and Cruz might have scored us an extra run. Also, it would have been better for the teams long-term flexibility and could have helped the rebuild since we'd likely have been able to ship Cruz out for some good prospects
    • Boy that's hard. Machado might cause us to win a World Series. Would have liked to have Weiters and Davis that postseason. We definitely would have won then I believe
    • Mejia is essentially Richie Martin.  I do like the idea of picking up Robertson and/or Adeiny Hechavarria. Going into camp with Martin, Valaika, Sanchez, Ruiz, Urias, and one or both of Robertson/Hechavarria should get us through the season.  We also have Stevie Wilkerson back in AAA,  and I suppose Bannon and McCoy are of that age of do or die; so they could get a shot. If the O's can spend 40 million over 4 years on the Korean SS Kim and spread the cash 3, 7, 10, 20 to alleviate the bill while we shed Cobb and Davis (would back loading it be attractive to a FA since Covid my cut into salaries again?).  I think its a good gamble because we are starting to build enough young SS depth in the system, yet it probably won't be truly developed for another 3 to 5 years.  When Kim's contract would be up, we would hopefully have a couple options ready in AAA/AA ready to go. Signing Kim would allow use to take a chance at being competitive in 2022 and 2023 while we wait for the our next star SS to develop for the long haul. If they go big and sign Kim, I would go with Sanchez at 2B and let Valaika, Ruiz, Martin, and Urias battle it out for 3B and a utility role or two.  You could still sign one of Robertson/Hechavarria to come in for that roster battle.  In the end, if you could space out Kim's contract, the next two seasons could still be fairly cost effective.  You are taking the risk on years 3 and 4.  If Kim ends up flopping that 20 million in year 4 would be a bummer, but at least the last few years of Davis and Cobb have softened that potential blow a little bit.  If we strike gold on Kim and our young pitching and position players start blossoming, it could get exciting by next season, which would be 2 years early based on my initial predictions with the rebuild.
    • I dont know about you all, but watching the stars of my youth playing out their careers while being an embarrassment to the game is absolutely heartbreaking to me.  I like how football does contracts with a portion being guaranteed and a portion, typically the last year or two not guaranteed.  Football contracts are typically much shorter.  I think it’s partially steroid related, but these baseball players seems to hit a cliff in their low 30s now.  Obviously this isn’t true for all players, but these massive contracts seem terrible for the game.     any thoughts on how to make baseball contracts better? The obvious answer would be to not give out foolish contracts, but that always happens as gms are understandably short sighted.  
    • Another gem.   Love hearing these stories of how it was in the old days.     https://blogs.fangraphs.com/a-conversation-with-1960s-slugger-jim-gentile-part-one/ https://blogs.fangraphs.com/a-conversation-with-1960s-slugger-jim-gentile-part-two/
