The Baltimore Orioles had a season to remember in 2022.
After years of losing and no hope, they managed to finish with a positive record of 83-79.
They have one of the best and deepest pools of prospects in MLB, and lots of impact players on their MLB roster.
In other words, while they might not have enough to win the World Series yet, they will be playoff contenders; and why not dream after that?
Everybody is excited for Orioles baseball in the spring, for the first time since 2017.

Quite literally, the Orioles are “ready to roll,” like that ball that found its way from Camden Yards to their spring training complex.
Fans are eager to see the Orioles compete with the best of the best in the American League East division.
Making the postseason would be a huge win for the O’s, and they have a great chance of doing that.
They have Adley Rutschman leading the way, they have the best prospect in baseball in Gunnar Henderson, they have Austin Hays, Cedric Mullins, Dean Kremer, Felix Bautista, and more help on the way.
They play in perhaps the toughest division in the sport, having to deal with the New York Yankees, the Toronto Blue Jays, the Tampa Bay Rays, and the Boston Red Sox.
It’s impressive that two or three of those teams will likely be left out of the postseason while being better than most of the American League.
If Baltimore can develop a strong pitcher or two besides Grayson Rodriguez – or acquire one before the deadline – the league should watch out.
They could be a couple of impact players away from challenging for bigger things.NEXT: Former MLB Star Reminisces Over Classic WBC Moment
