A look back and ahead

Happy New Year’s Day! It’s always a slow time for baseball news around the holidays, but the calendar flip also means Spring Training is just around the corner.

It’s always weird to see the end of one year, and I took one final look back at the 2014 season with this piece on five storylines that shaped the O’s playoff run.

Of course, the focus is now on this year and how Baltimore will stack up in 2015. Like every other club in baseball, the Orioles have some lingering issues on January 1. I look at their top 10 questions heading into camp here.

Two of the biggest questions, in my opinion, is the season that Chris Davis has along with how soon the O’s get Manny Machado and Matt Wieters back healthy and productive. But you can make a case for a number of the questions being crucial to the success of this season.

Finally, thanks to all who followed along on Orioles.com, this blog, Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. Here’s to a great 2015.

Hi and thanks for the updates, even though they are slowing down a little now. Any news on the day the Os pitchers/catchers report this year?
