So rather than addressing their suspect pitching staff or superstar-less lineup card, the club is improving the its duds.
For instance, the team's mascot, the venerable oriole, will be getting a makeover. According to the Balitmore Sun, the new bird "looks more like a traditional oriole with its head tilted upward and it feathers more outstretched and a more pronounced head, chest and neck area. The bird's feet are also more perched rather than flat."
The biggest change to the Orioles' uniforms is coming to the team's road jersey:
"'Baltimore' will be across the front of the gray jerseys in orange and outlined in black and in lettering very similar to how 'Orioles' is scripted on the home jerseys. The Maryland flag patch on the left sleeve will be surrounded by the text 'Orioles baseball.' On the right sleeve, the 'Orioles' script, which stretches across the home jerseys, will be written in smaller form. The uniform pants will also include orange striping."
This way, when you're watching your home team put the hurt on the orange birds, you'll know exactly which city's fans to feel sorry for. Baltimore.
All of this, of course, begs the question: If you put lipstick on an oriole, will Danys Baez still be 0-6 with a 6.44 ERA in 53 appearances?
