Dugout Digest – welcome to Orioles Day


Next up in our season preview series…the Baltimore Orioles, who followed up a playoff berth in 2012 with a respectable, yet disappointing, 85 win season in 2013. The Orioles had one of those offseasons that started off really slow, but blossomed later on as prices began to fall.

Yesterday was Blue Jays Day at TOC, and heeeeere’s your recap.
