I don’t think the Orioles make the playoffs this year but they’re certainly capable of doing so. And if they do make it they’ll probably actually use Zach Britton this year and thus could do some ‘Royals-style’ damage. A team that can compete is laughably, laughably better off than the Rockies btw. I don’t understand dying on this hill that the Orioles are not a good team. They’re absolutely a better team then the Rays.
