The Baltimore Orioles used to be one of the most respected and storied franchises in all of baseball—back in the ‘60s, ‘70s and early ‘80s. But something changed along the way.

Starting pitching used to be the key to the Birds’ success. They prided themselves on strong pitching from Hall of Fame RHP Jim Palmer, Mike Flanagan, Tippy Martinez, Mike Cuellar, Dave McNally, and the list can go on and on.

Plus, they were led by one of the best minds in the game, good ole Earl Weaver. Now, Buck Showalter has righted the ship, at least for one season, and he’s tried to bring back the winning tradition to Baltimore.

The success for any team starts with its starting rotation, and the Orioles will have a strong front five come next spring.

Check out these five reasons why the Orioles will own the AL East for the foreseeable future.
