Baltimore Orioles 2009 Season Preview

Leading up to the start of the 2009 Regular Season, Diamond Hoggers will preview each of MLB’s 30 teams. Today’s team is the Baltimore Orioles. This preview completes our full run of MLB’s 30 teams.

You know this is that one review we’ve been dreading to write. We’ve made it through 29 other MLB teams this spring and it’s been an enjoyable exercise for the most part. We like doing these reviews because it forces us to learn about the other teams in the league and we pick up tidbits that we normally would have missed. A key acquisition here, a new position battle there. It’s really good for the die hard baseball fan to do.

Then you get to the Baltimore Orioles. Orioles fans, go out and hang yourself from the birch tree in your backyard. Besides living in a repulsive, STD rampant city; your MLB team is not even relevant in any way shape or form.

Owner Peter Angelos is cancer to his own franchise. Nick Markakis is a nice player. You’d better hope that Matt Wieters is going to come up and be a nice player. Even if he is, look at that division you’re in. Christ you would have better luck in an ass kicking contest with no legs.

We’re not gonna go any further then that. That’s all we’ll cover for this team. The closer George Sherrill is so shitty most people spell his surname like the female name Sherrol. He’s shitty. So have fun this year Orioles. You make it easier on everyone else in the league who’s having a rough year. Always you do.
