At this point, that's all the Orioles are. What these numbers tell us isn't that the Orioles have captured some magical skill set that allows them to evade expectations, but instead that their true talent level is worse than the standings suggest. Of course that doesn't mean we, as fans, should enjoy it any less.

That statistic indicates they they WERE a very bad defensive team, but does not mean they are one NOW.
