Although the Baltimore Orioles’ season came to a crashing halt after C.C. Sabathia outpitched Jason Hammel in Game 5 of the ALDS a couple of weeks ago, this year was still a giant success for the team.

For the first time since 1997, the Birds finished with a winning record and advanced to the playoffs. As an Oriole fan, I was just hoping for a winning season. A playoff run was too much to ask for, I thought.

Well, behind mastermind skipper Buck Showalter, the Orioles were able to pull off one of the biggest surprises in all of baseball (arguably, right up there with the Oakland A’s magical season).

Fans are not only hoping, but now expecting a strong team for years to come since they have young talent bursting at the seams. However, Showalter’s contract is up at the end of the year.

That could spell trouble for the Birds if they do not re-sign him in the near future.

Check out these five reasons why the Baltimore Orioles need to extend Showalter ASAP.
