#29 on our greatest Orioles countdown is one with us in the present day: Adam Jones, who was the Most Valuable Oriole on the magical 2012 playoff team. That we have years more of his career to look forward to is a nice thing indeed.
Our #33 greatest Oriole is one you may have forgotten or never known about: super-substitute outfielder Merv Rettenmund, who played a key role on the three consecutive American League champion Orioles teams from 1969-71.
The Top 40 Orioles series continues with a recent ex-Oriole, starting pitcher Jeremy Guthrie. While unappreciated by many in his time here, he was a solid presence for years on many teams that had no other good starters.
Our Top 40 Orioles series continues with #39: Gus Triandos, who's perhaps most famous for earning the admiration of a certain fictional Baltimore police officer. He's worth remembering as a player for much more than that.
