At the time of this writing, the Baltimore Orioles are just one game out of first place in the AL East, behind the New York Yankees and Tampa Bay Rays. And so far this season, the Orioles aren't very used to being anywhere but first in their division.
If the Orioles want to maintain their high standing, multiple things, of course, need to go right for them, just as they would need to for any team.
Earlier in the season, certain things were being executed upon that helped them dominate. But over the last few weeks, their level of play has fallen off, and it's a wonder that they're still eight games over the .500 mark.
Should the Orioles make sure they better themselves in even just a few of the following areas, this team could end up being for real instead of fading off as the season progresses.
