8 Baltimore Orioles on the Verge of Historic Achievements

Chris Davis and Manny Machado have finally arrived at the half-way point of what could turn out to be two of the most amazing seasons in baseball history.

The common Orioles fan might be under the illusion that they're the only ones, but they'd be wrong in that assumption. In fact, there are several other members of this year's Baltimore squad who are on the verge of making their own history.

Yes, Davis and Machado get all the attention, and deservedly so. But how much love is thrown Matt Wieters way?

Yes, he narrowly missed out on his third consecutive All-Star appearance, but he's still putting together a pretty fine season both at the plate and behind it.

And what about Chris Tillman?

Yes, his performance Sunday wasn't the most impressive, but he still has 10 wins at the All-Star break. I dare an O's fan to name the last Baltimore pitcher to accomplish that!

And J.J. Hardy?

For Pete's sake, Hardy is one of the most underrated shortstops in the game today, and maybe ever. He deserves all the attention afforded to a man making his second All-Star appearance and then some.

So, without snubbing our noses at what Davis and Machado have accomplished, let's take a moment to appreciate the historic achievements that these players are about to accomplish.
