Five moves to bring the Norfolk Five to Baltimore

The Orioles’ big league squad has an offense problem right now. The Norfolk Tides have a potential solution.

After all, the Orioles are coming off a series against Kansas City and Pittsburgh where they combined to hit .199 while hitting .170 with runners in scoring position. While the batting average isn’t good, the O’s performance with runners on second and/or third is the particularly worrying trend. After all, the O’s are the team that led MLB with a .287 average with runners in scoring position last year.

If the Orioles bats are living under a storm cloud right now, Norfolk’s lineup is in the midst of the most vibrant patch of sunshine.
