As expected 2019 has been a miserable season for the Baltimore Orioles. However, there’s still plenty of reasons to tune in to each game. Here are five reasons why.
The Baltimore Orioles finished 47-115 in 2018. In 2019 (21-50) they’re on pace to finish with the exact same record as they have shown little to no improvement.
Though expected, it’s a dark time to be an Oriole fan. Visiting fans flock Camden Yards with the Orioles fans in attendance left quiet, there hasn’t been a series victory to celebrate in nearly two months, and more trades of productive players are incoming.
Despite all this, there’s plenty of reasons to keep watching the 2019 Baltimore Orioles play.
Let’s look at five reasons why starting with nearly everyone’s favorite current Oriole.
Enjoy Watching Trey Mancini In an Orioles Uniform
Trey Mancini has been a pleasure to watch in Birdland over the last few seasons, but 2019 has been the best of them all for the O’s slugger. Mancini has posted all-star numbers as he’s batting .310 with 16 home runs so far this season.
However at age 27 and being a member of an Orioles team likely still five or more years away from being contenders there’s a good chance Mike Elias and company trade Mancini.
With Mancini being on a team friendly deal and with several years left on his contract he’d bring back a large prospect haul, and if offered the right deal the Orioles will probably take it.
Thus, enjoy having Mancini in white and orange while you can. He may be in a different uniform come the end of July.
