Like I said, the Os had a nice year last year. That doesn't put them in the 'especially against' category - let's see if they can put together TWO decent years before we promote them. :-) the Yankees were 13-5 against the Orioles he two prior years BTW.
As for better than last year, they seem to be largely the same team as that which ended the year, with that big run to get them to that big +7 run differential (after being negative most of the year)... A lot of people think last year was a fluke for them - I'm willing to be convinces otherwise, but I'm skeptical.
