AL East Preview: Baltimore Orioles

We kick off our preview of all 30 MLB teams with the Baltimore Orioles, who I predict will finish fifth in the AL East. The Orioles are a good team with a lot of talent, but they do not have enough to compete with the Yankees or the Red Sox and they will barely compete with the Rays.

Keep an Eye On: Adam Jones, of

In 132 games last year, Jones batted .270 with nine homers and 57 RBIs. Expect his production to increase.
