The Baltimore Orioles returned to baseball prominence last season, which is a very good thing for baseball. Finishing the 2012 campaign with a 93-69 record for second place in the American League East, the Orioles went on to claim one of the two Wild Card spots in the American League. They went on to face the New York Yankees in the American League Division Series, where they lost an intense five-game series. In 2013, the Orioles look to take their success one step further and aim for a World Series birth, which would be their first since 1983.
