    Man — if the Orioles are good, we are all going to be pulling egg off of our collective faces for at least three months. Like dozens of eggs…

      Yeah, that's true, but that's the thing about odds. Sometimes that 1 in 100 chance (or whatever it is) comes up. It doesn't mean we weren't smart for thinking otherwise. There are a lot of questions with their pitching staff, and they won't have the same level of success in one-run games. Unless both come together, along with near star seasons from at least two of their four big players (Markakis, Wieters, Machado, and Jones) to push 90 wins.

    There's just too much that's going to have to happen for the Orioles to have a repeat. I think the offense is mostly for real. Some of the better hitters even suffered from BABIP death last year… but the pitching has too many holes to take seriously at this point and yeah… one run games..

    Your use of the term margin for error is completely wrong. The riskier your investments are, the smaller the margin of error is. Look it up.
