Week of 12-15-14


The 1971 Baltimore Orioles team was exceptional, as all four of their starting pitchers won at least 20 games each. The Orioles finished the 1971 season with a record of 101-57, but lost to the Pittsburgh Pirates in Game 7 of the World Series. The 4 pitchers on the O’s squad to win at least 20 games each were Mike Cuellar (20-9), Pat Dobson (20-8), Jim Palmer (20-9), and Dave McNally (21-5). But the pitching was not the only dominance that this O’s team presented, as their offensive lineup consisted of Brooks Robinson, Davey Johnson, Paul Blair, and Frank Robinson. Their manager Earl Weaver led this remarkable team to hit a total of 158 homers and put up an ERA of 2.99. This helped the O’s dominate the AL East division, winning it by 12 games over the second place Tigers. They then went on to sweep the A’s 3-0 in the ALCS, but it was a different story in the WS, as they failed to win game 7 resulting in a 2-1 loss. This 1971 O’s team will always be remembered, as it is arguably one of the best seasons/teams of all time.
