The Orioles Will Finish 45-117
Despite being on pace to finish 49-113, it’s hard to believe the Orioles will finish with a higher record than last season.
Not because the team is worse, but due to the daunting schedule they face in the second half. The remainder of July features a ten-game home-stand against the American League wild card leading Tampa Bay Rays Rays, the red hot Washington Nationals and defending world champion Boston Red Sox. Then the team will head west to take on the Arizona Diamondbacks, Los Angeles Angels and San Diego Padres.
In August the Orioles will play series against the New York Yankees and Houston Astros at home and then have to visit the Yankees in the Bronx the Red Sox at Fenway, host the Rays and travel to D.C. to take on the Nationals.
The season’s final month see’s a three-game set against the MLB best Los Angeles Dodgers and more action with the Rays and Red Sox.
It’s a brutal schedule that’s going to be very tough for the rebuilding Orioles to handle.
