Baltimore Orioles: Top ten pitchers in franchise history

1 of 11

A look at the Baltimore Orioles’ top ten pitchers in their history.

When you look at the history of the Baltimore Orioles, it’s full of great pitchers – such as the great Jim Palmer. Without a doubt he’s the greatest pitcher that the franchise has ever seen, and possibly ever will see. Palmer’s a pitcher that might come around once in several generations for a team.

However the fact is that the franchise has had other great pitchers, and plenty of them at that. So I thought it might be fun to take a look through the history of the team and see which ones might qualify for a “top ten” of sorts. For what it’s worth, these pitchers are in no particular order, and they’re based almost entirely on my opinion!

And why might that be? Well, I’m the one writing the piece! Needless to say, the other three twenty-game winners in 1971 will be represented here, and maybe even a surprise or two. Who knows…but let’s get started!
