Dating back to September 2017, the Baltimore Orioles offense has been quite offensive.
A few seasons ago the Baltimore Orioles had one of the best offenses in the game. But it seems like something is going on. They’ve been struggling to score runs. The good thing is that it’s still early on in the season that they have time to get things fixed.
What factors could be causing the Baltimore Orioles to have problems on offense? The first factor could be the weather. The team was scoring a lot of runs in spring training, but now that they are playing in the cold, most of the bats have gone extremely cold.
Trey Mancini seems to be the only Orioles player who is consistently making solid contact and getting hits when not being robbed.

The second factor in the Orioles offensive struggles is Scott Coolbaugh. Normally when a team’s offense struggles the blame is put on the hitting coach. Maybe it’s time for the Orioles to make a change and light a spark in the team.
Buck Showalter has been changing the lineup around and it seems like putting Trey Mancini at leadoff is paying off. Everyone else is struggling.
We all thought Jonathon Schoop was going to follow up his monster 2017 season with an even better 2018 season, but that isn’t the case so far. He definitely needs to move down in the order until he gets things together.
Hopefully, the offense will turn it around once the weather gets warmer, but the weather shouldn’t be used as an excuse for the struggles as most teams have had to deal with the cold weather to begin the season.
