Have you given up on the Orioles being a playoff contender in 2017?


Recommended Posts

I looked over the last few years of standings to see how many teams went from .500ish on July 1st to the playoffs. Of course, most playoff teams are already at or near the top of the standings by July. In 2015 the Mets and Rangers were both just 40-39 on July 1 but ended up winning their divisions. The last team I found to go from under .500 on July 1 to the playoffs was the Dodgers in 2013 who went 38-43 in the first half and then somehow won 92 games. That team was 47-47 at the All-Star break, then 72-50 by mid-August.
