Orioles should advance further in the playoffs than LA, according to a Dodgers analyst

Two clubs that have consistently placed highly in their divisional standings all season are debatable as to how far they will advance in the playoffs in 2023, even though they are almost certain to qualify.

The young movement has fully established itself in Baltimore in a huge way, even without playoff baseball because they still had their old LA friend Manny Machado.

The Orioles have finally received some national attention for the first time in years as they reach 90 wins for the first time since their mid-2010s playoff core.

The AL East leaders returned in a big manner in 2023, led by promising young players like Adley Rustchman, Gunnar Henderson, and others.

Although the American League appears to be significantly more formidable than the National League this season, one of the main causes of this disparity has been how excellent the top two teams in the National League have been.

The major league-leading Atlanta Braves have already clinched a playoff position, but the Dodgers, who have continued their consistent dominance year after year, aren’t far behind.

The NL West leaders in Los Angeles are well on their way to another division title with just a few games left to secure another championship, despite concerns about their consistency to finish the season.

The Orioles, who will be playing in the postseason for the first time in many years, will be an intriguing example to see if the old cliché about experience holding true in October is true.

In the event that this adage is accurate, the Dodgers could swiftly disprove Russo’s prediction.
