An exciting new reality lies beneath the recent shock-and-awe offseason campaign unleashed by the now glitz-and-glamour Toronto Blue Jays. This reality is that the AL East has become a banyan of dynamic starting pitching unlike any other MLB division. 

Collectively, rotations in the AL East are ripe with a healthy mixture of youth, ironclad talent and battle-tested experience. The same also boasts a nice combo of crafty aces, dominant fireballers and left and right-handed workhorses.

Consequently, more than any time in recent history the AL East is truly an intriguing force. This division is driven by tangible statistics and intangible traits that make it nearly impossible to predict what team will be crowned AL East champion in 2013.  

Perhaps the most enigmatic rotation in the AL East is the Baltimore Orioles. Fresh from a 93-69 record (and first postseason berth in 15 years) in 2012, Baltimore looks to concrete a rotation that can be described as a patchwork of unproven journeymen.  

This slideshow reveals how the Orioles’ rotation stacks up against the rest of the teams in the AL East.
