Oakland A’s 2014-15 Team Review

As far as hitting coaches go he has been the "wrecking ball" to many talented teams. He started with the Padres [...]

Baltimore Orioles 2014-15 Team Review

Baltimore Orioles in Trouble without Nelson Cruz? Well the Baltimore Orioles have been a solid hitting ball club the last 2 years Baltimore Orioles have been in the top 10 in hitting. They are a homerun hitting team who are prone to slump a bit throughout the year and have issues with on base percentage. All in all, their power has made up for any weakness's and they were one playoff series away from going to the World Series. The O's hit .256/.422  which ranks them ninth in 2014. They are one of the few teams in the whole league who [...]
