Ranking the 70-win teams
10. Baltimore Orioles (74-55): The Orioles, like the Blue Jays, have six players with double digit home runs, including Nelson Cruz, who has 34 home runs. But their best hitters right now are bench players Delmon Young, who’s hitting .311 and Steve Pearce, who is hitting .289 with 15 home runs. But if the Orioles don’t hit home runs, they could be more vulnerable than they appear. The starting pitching certainly gets overlooked with all five starters having an ERA in the threes. Ubaldo Jimenez’ ERA is 4.74, but they don’t need to use him.
