Although the Baltimore Orioles don’t have a record as good as most fans would hope, it’s still very respectable and they’re still very much in the race for the AL East. There hasn’t been one constant for them the entire season.

It has either been the hitting or the pitching. Sometimes the pitchers get hot and just go seven straight starts allowing three runs or less and sometimes they go seven straight starts allowing six runs or more. It’s the same situation with the hitting. Sometimes they have a string of five games where they score seven runs and hit four home runs in each game and sometimes they can’t even buy a hit. You just really don’t know what you’re going to get.

With all that being said, there have still been a select group of players on the team that have consistently produced throughout the entire season. Although other players will have to start stepping up, the consistent players have been good enough to keep the Orioles over .500 the entire season.
