Orioles-Angels series preview: Welcome to the 2024 season

The Orioles have a new owner. They have a new ace. Their roster is packed with more young talent than O’s fans have seen in a long, long time, and expectations are sky high for the 2024 season. Today, their journey of 162 games — and hopefully many more — begins at Camden Yards against the Los Angeles Angels.

This marks the Orioles’ first time opening a season at home since 2018, the last year of the Buck Showalter/Dan Duquette era. That game went well enough — with starter Dylan Bundy throwing seven shutout innings and Adam Jones bashing a walkoff homer in the 11th to beat the Twins — but the rest of the season sure didn’t, turning into a 115-loss disaster that cost Showalter and Duquette their jobs.
