When the AL and NL broke into divisions, the Orioles dominated the new AL East. In the first three years of division play (1969-71), Weaver's Orioles finished first three times, winning 109, 108, and 101 games. Baltimore went 9-0 in the first three AL Championship Series. They finished first five times in the first six years of the AL East. The advent of free agency hit Baltimore hard in the '70's, but the Orioles stayed aloft on the strength of their farm system. They won 88 or more games in every nonstrike season between 1968-83.

BALTIMORE ORIOLES - The Boston Globe A little Oriole pride. The article itself is great, but the very first comment following it is also a must-read.
