The beginning of a new season has the O’s hoping that they can continue their new founding success. With the disappointment of losing to the Royals in the ALCS last year, they have new high expectations of competing for the AL crown this year. The O’s continued their new found philosophy of not spending high dollars on free agents
Through the first week of the season, the O’s ended it with a 3-3 record, taking 2 from Tampa and only 1 from Toronto.
Thankfully, all teams in the AL East have the same record at 3-3. Leading the offense for the O’s in the first week of the season was that name all of the fans like to say “ALLLEHANDAROOO” (Alejandro) De Aza”. Through the first week, he is sporting a .368/.429/.579 stat line. Leading the way for the pitchers is that of Chris Tillman who defeated the Ray’s in his first start of the season. He only allowed 1 run on 5 hits. The next 7 days are still against the AL East with 3 games against New York at home and 3 games against Boston at Boston.
