The only person on ESPN that still refuses to give them any credit at all and acknowledge them as a contender at this point is Keith Law.
I haven't listened to Baseball Today podcast this week yet (I usually wait til Thursday and then listen to them all at work) but last week Karabell and Law got into a somewhat heated debate about the O's. Then, the next day when Law wasn't on Karabell pretty much said he doesn't care about their run differential and he is now a believer and they would be in his top 10 power rankings.
Keith Law isn't as anti-Orioles as many think IMO. He has an act and the fact, he has supporters and detractors is why he is so successful I believe. I'd take what he says with a grain of salt.
