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.
“This is not a devastating loss for Mark Turgeon and the Turtles, but it is a bad one.”
So far, the Orioles are not being viewed as a team to fear in the American League.
At 22-3 overall and 10-2 in the conference play, the Terps have posted a gaudy record.
The Carolina Panthers and Denver Broncos will meet on Sunday at Levi’s Stadium to determine the kings of the NFL world for the 2015 season.
Led by Melo Trimble’s 20 points and Diamond Stone’s double-double, the Terps emerged with a 70-65 triumph for their 20th win of the season.
Maryland held Jarrod Uthoff to only two baskets and out-rebounded the Hawkeyes as they earned themselves a quality 74-68 victory.
Maryland has grabbed only 180 offensive boards and they average 9.0 per game.
Given the uncertain state of the starting rotation, the Baltimore Orioles may need all of the offensive firepower they can get.
