Updated:

The storybook days of the Baltimore Orioles' consistency for success seem like a distant memory. Baltimore's 25-35 record in the shortened 60-game 2020 season was on pace to replicate a third straight dubious distinction of losing more than 100 baseball games. The Orioles are beginning to string together a streak of worst or close to worst records in baseball. These recent results have been a huge disappointment for Orioles' fans. Baltimore actually made modest improvements between 2019 and 2020. The Orioles' team batting average ranked a little better, and the pitching staff's ERA dropped dramatically. However, these improvements were only good enough to turn a 100-plus loss team into one that didn't hit the dubious century mark for regular season failures. Baltimore fans do have at least one positive to hang their hopes on.

The Orioles have the second youngest average age for batters, plus the sixth youngest average age on their pitching staff. The young bats in Baltimore became slightly more efficient at pushing runs across the plate. However, to crawl out of the cellar in the very difficult AL East may be a very difficult challenge ahead of such a young team. There is hope for success in the future for the Orioles, but it doesn't appear that future will be anytime soon.
