It's a little difficult to remember now, but the Orioles were once one of the best teams in baseball. The franchise that had the worst pitching in 2011 once had the best rotation in the majors, one that is still considered to be one of the best of all time.
The Orioles today are miserable. Baltimore hasn't seen a winning season in the last 14 years, and fans have been poached by the up-and-coming Washington Nationals. Although the team as a whole is poor, the Orioles do still have some stars in Matt Wieters and Adam Jones.
Looking at the past greatness, it's intriguing to think where these current Orioles will stand in the history of the organization. Who will I be able to tell my children about, just like my dad taught me of Brooks, Frank Robinson and the great Jim Palmer?
Here are the all-time greats for the Orioles, position by position. I've chosen each player based on single season statistics instead of career totals to make things a little more interesting.
