The final thing I want to look at is their competition. The Orioles have not exactly played the top tier offenses so far. The teams they have played and their statistics:
Looking at the above statistics, it is possible to determine that majority of the teams they have face are league average or worse so far on offense.The only team that could been said has clearly been an offensive force is the Yankees. Otherwise they have yet to face another dominant offensive club. Of course these statistics are flawed, as these teams could very well end the season as productive lineups. However, as of April, they are all average or worse. Thus, it is probably not much of a reach saying that this might be a part of the reason the Orioles' pitching staff has been so successful. Obviously the staff needs to get some credit for helping towards making these offenses' average, but regardless it should be remembered that they were swept against the only "true" top tier team (at least so far this season).
The upcoming schedule should provide us with a plethora of new ideas towards how good this pitching staff truly is. Maybe the Orioles can surprise a few people.
