10_Caw_RavensOrioles_news.jpg


Baltimore is wrapped up in Orioles Magic with the Birds about to take on the Royals in the American League Championship Series.

That includes us here at the Under Armour Performance Center.

So I thought it would be fun to draw some comparisons between players on the Orioles Ravens rosters.

Here are my 17 Ravens and their Orioles equals (be sure to suggest your own in the comments below):

OLB Terrell Suggs is CF Adam Jones
The personality and mouths of their respective teams, they play with a swagger and like to have a good time.

OG Marshal Yanda is RF Nick Markakis
Tight-lipped, business-like veterans who care only about one thing: winning.

Take a look back through the history of the Ravens and Orioles flying together. Go O's!

QB Joe Flacco is SP Chris Tillman**
The aces, leaders of the staff.

WR Steve Smith is DH Nelson CruzFree-agent signings that worked out in a big way and have been critical to their teams' success.

OLB C.J. Mosley is SP Kevin Gausman
Two young studs who are relied upon to produce in big-time situations.

OLB Pernell McPhee is OF Delmon Young
Super-subs, these guys are extremely productive coming off the bench.

RB Justin Forsett is 1B Steve Pearce
Veterans who bounced around between teams for a little bit before landing and excelling in Baltimore.

WR Torrey Smith is SS J.J. HardyFan favorites who are in some ways the heart of the team.

K Justin Tucker is CL Zach Britton
The clutch finishers.

OC Jeremy Zuttah is RP Andrew Miller
Under-the-radar additions who are paying big dividends in a less-than-sexy role.

TE Owen Daniels is C Nick Hundley
Veteran additions who are now being thrust into larger roles due to an injury to the starter.

RT Rick Wagner is SP Miguel Gonzalez
They just go about their business, and do it well despite the lack of fanfare.

CB Jimmy Smith is SP Bud Norris
Young players with a bit of moxie who are having a career year.

FB Kyle Juszczyk is RP Darren O'Day
Their names are fun to chant.

WR Jacoby Jones is 1B Chris Davis
Home run hitters who don't always have a good average, but they can explode at any time.

S Matt Elam is IF Ryan Flaherty
They play all over the field.

CB Lardarius Webb is 3B Manny Machado
Provide excellent defense, but both have struggled with injuries.
