Despite a disappointing Labor Day in which the Orioles got swept in a doubleheader by the Blue Jays, it has been a magical season in Birdland as the team has exceeded everyone’s expectations and sits with a legitimate chance to make a postseason push in September. Coming into Opening Day, Fangraphs projected the O’s had a 0.1% chance to make the postseason and would have a 63-99 record. This seemed weirdly optimistic as the team has not lost less than 100 games in a full season since 2017 and it felt like 2022 would be another putrid season to forget.
Ranking the Most Memorable Baltimore Orioles Team Slogans
However, as you all know, the team has given fans a season to remember regardless of how the last month plays out and the marketing department has responded by giving the team a “Chaos Comin'” slogan for the postseason push. This is an allusion to The Wire which is a Baltimore-based show. In The Wire, one of the main characters, Omar, has a tune that he whistles to indicate that he is coming to rob local drug dealers hence the birth of the well-known one-liner, “Omar’s comin.'” Closer Felix Bautista has adopted the tune that Omar whistles as his entrance music and the team have bought into the local ties as well as the fear factor the “Omar Whistle” brought into the show. “Chaos Comin'” is not the only slogan the O’s have adopted during a playoff run and here I will rank my four favorites.
