Health and the starting pitching growth are the two biggest keys for the Orioles success this season.

These are two of the toughest things to gauge because players make take a step back instead of a step forward. The projected 25 man roster includes alot of guys that have injury concerns, but history dictates the lineup is vastly improved.
Overall, this is still the best 25 man roster the Orioles have collected since winter of 2003, on paper.
Does the WAR translate? It is the reason they play the game on the field and not on paper. I feel the team can break the hump, if all of the right pieces fall on the board. It is still a big "IF" though.
