The Orioles haven't made the playoffs in 12 years since 1997 and not a winning year since!! It's been tough and even embarrasing at some points to be an Orioles fan since then, but we still love and support our team no matter what, when is it going to end though? We have all the tools to become a great organization, with Jones, Markakis, Roberts, Johnson, Ray, and even Pie (who has all the tools to be great even though he's not preforming now), and then the prospects: Wieters, Tilman, Arietta, Matusz, Erbe, Reimold, Patton, Hernandez, and Bergesen leading the way. Man, does the future look bright with these kids coming up and young stars like Jones and Markakis who are already probable allstars! But how long until we truely turn into a serious contender? And is it possible with Angelos behind the wheel? Thank god McPhail came along and gave the O's hope once again!!
