League worst .117 BA
Club ace Dylan Bundy is on his way to winning the CY Young after being tied for the league lead in ERA.
Cashner and Gausman are the new Miley and Ubaldo.
The Orioles’ offense is gonna be the worst in the league. Only one home run from the club and one of five teams to not score double digits (second-worst in the league with 5). Only 11 hits, totaling last in the league. One of these was a bunt against the shift that ruffled some feathers. All hope is lost sell now.
