2011 was a year to forget for the Baltimore Orioles | Orioles Locker
The Baltimore Orioles spent some money last winter in an effort to compete in the A.L. East in 2011, but it just didn’t work out. The Orioles finished up with a 69-93 record as they finished last in the A.L. East, 28 games behind the Yankees. Here are some things that stood out in 2011. 

In the playoffs, there will now be three games five as both the Cardinals and Diamondbacks won last night. Game five between the Tigers and Yankees will happen tonight and the NL teams play tomorrow. Stories from the playoffs:

Diamondbacks 10, Brewers 6: On the Road Again. - AZ Snake Pit
Two days ago, Arizona was done. Dead. Gone. History. An absolute afterthought of the post-season, lost amid a frenzy of coverage on the Yankees, Matt Moore, Sabathia vs. Verlander, the indestructible Phillies rotation, and Beast Mode. 48 hours later, Arizona has evened their series against the Brewers at two games apiece and will head back to Milwaukee for Game Five after scoring 18 runs in their offense's last 16 innings.

Blink: Cardinals 5, Phillies 3 - The Good Phight
If there's reason for hope, it's that Chris Carpenter will be opposed by his former Blue Jays teammate and good friend Roy Halladay.
