Cedric Mullins Is Reminding Us Of Past MLBbros That Have Led The Orioles To Playoffs

There are few teams in baseball who have been hotter than the Baltimore Orioles since the All-Star break. Led by MLBbro Cedric “CM Storm” Mullins, heading into Tuesday night, Baltimore is 12-6 since the break and only a half game back in the AL Wild card despite trading Trey Mancini and All-Star closer Jorge Lopez. 

Baltimore is currently locked in a three-game set with another Wild Card hopeful, the Toronto Blue Jays, and our MLBbro Mullins made sure his squad got off on the right foot to kick off this series.

On Tuesday, Mullins went 2-for-4 with a double and one run scored in his return to the leadoff spot after spending some time batting eight. Following his 30/30 season, Mullins continues to hit fastballs and get on base. Coming into Wednesday night, Mullins was batting .299 against fastballs and hit five of his nine homers against the pitch. 

Now the Os haven’t sniffed the playoffs since their 2016 Wild Card game appearance, but for one of the most historic franchises in MLB history, this return to relevance is much needed. 

Much like Mullins with this current bunch of Orioles, whenever the playoffs are within reach in Baltimore there’s an MLBbro doing some of the heavy lifting.

Let’s take a look at some notable bros who have led Baltimore to the playoffs.

Frank Robinson


Any list involving the Orioles would be invalid without the inclusion of this legend. Mr. Robinson was one of two men in the history of this franchise to play, coach and manage. His versatility as a person could only be matched at the plate, where Frank won two MVPs and a Triple Crown for Baltimore. 1966 was one hell of a year for Frank and the O’s, as he took home the regular season MVP, The Triple Crown AND the World Series MVP Trophy.

Eddie Murray



One of the greatest first baseman in MLB history, “Steady Eddie” is one of seven players with 3,000 hits and 500 homers. Murray was an All-Star seven times in 12 seasons for Baltimore, a run that included five top-5 MVP finishes and a World Series Trophy in 1983. Eddie’s 1983 season saw him hit .306 with 33 homers and 111 RBI in the regular season, arguably the best year of his career. 

Adam Jones



A member of the last Baltimore squad to have an opportunity to make the playoffs in 2016, Adam Jones was quietly one of the best Orioles of all time. A five-time All-Star and four-time Gold Glove winner in his 11 years with the squad, Adam ranks top five all-time in hits, runs, RBI, home runs, total bases and extra base hits.
