How good are the 2012 Baltimore Orioles?

They haven’t been this good since 2005 — pre-collapse of course. As Joe Papparotto on Twitter points out, the Orioles are 14 games over the .500 mark for the first time since June 21, 2005 when they were 42-28.

That means that they’re currently playing their best baseball all season. Watch out, AL East.

The O’s finished 74-88 in 2005. They’re just four wins away from surpassing that mark with 34 games left.
