Can the Orioles Be Like The Rays in '09? No. Have They Improved on Paper? Yes...

Yesterday, the Washington Post's Dave Shenin in a very positive post on the "Baseball Insider" looks at some of the moves the Orioles have made in the off-season, and compares them to the Rays -- who of course won the American League East last season.
