10. They're road-tested

In the still-young 2012 season, the Orioles have already faced a few two really tough road trips, facing off against AL East foes the Boston Red Sox, the New York Yankees and the Toronto Blue Jays, and heading to Los Angeles for a series against the Angels, a team many consider one of the best in the American League. And they've done more than held their own; they've dominated, including the first sweep of the Red Sox in Fenway Park since 1994. The Birds are 15-6 on the road this year, putting them almost halfway to their win total on the road in 2011, when they went a lousy 30-51.
