It happens every spring

The main optimism I see is the Red Sox won't be making much of an effort this season.  That should help the team. 

Shrug.    First of all, I doubt Boston will be that bad.    Second, I think Toronto will be better than they were last year.    Third, no matter how good New York is, we figure to do better than going 2-17 against them and being outscored 151-83.

Idk. If they time it right Cole could go 5-0 just against us. 
 

My optimistic thought is that we have a pretty solid lineup. Even after losing Villar, and holding Mountcastle back. 
 

Ruiz is a sleeper to have a good year.

I'm really looking forward to this spring. I think there's a TON of interesting things to follow: 

  • do we see improvements from Davis, Mullins, and Hess based on their varying approaches to offseason work? (weight gain, 2 week intensive work with hitting instructor, the Means P3 program, respectively)
  • do we see the return of Chance "I mostly only crush in ST and AAA" Sisco?
  • how does Adley look?
  • two Rule 5 pitchers with legit shots at the rotation/bullpen, one of whom is a big spin rate guy
  • a new quality SS
  • middle infield battle: Urias/Urena/Martin/Herrera
  • actual pitching prosects: Lowther/Akin/Wells/Zimmermann
  • actual position player prospects: Mountcastle/Diaz/Bannon/McKenna

This looks super fun if you ask me.

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.
