Three weeks into the 2016 Major League Baseball season, the Baltimore Orioles hold the early advantage in the AL East.
The last two American League Eastern Division champs will renew acquaintances this week in Baltimore.
Early in 2016, they have beaten teams in different ways. The starting pitching has been solid and the bullpen has been strong.
Right-hander Yovani Gallardo will make his regular season debut as a member of the Orioles on Wednesday night against Minnesota in game two of the series at Camden Yards.
If the Orioles are going to have any chance of continuing this run of success and being a contender in the American League, the starting pitching will have to be better than it was in 2015.
The two players who hold the key for the 2016-17 Maryland Terps are Melo Trimble and Robert Carter Jr.
Reports out of Florida say that Bundy is fully healthy for the first time in a couple of years.
The 2016 NCAA Tournament is upon us and that means it’s time for predictions.
Expectations were through the roof heading into the 2015-16 season for Head Coach Mark Turgeon and the Terps.
Through three exhibition games in Florida, the hurlers really haven’t done much to alleviate the concerns.
To make that happen, Maryland has to improve on the glass, value the basketball and improve what has recently become a leaky defense.
Unless the other members of the Orioles rotation step up their performance, the Gallardo acquisition will not have much effect on the American League East standings in 2016.
