Cal Ripken Jr.
It took 15 years, but the Orioles managed to return to the playoffs last season after finishing just two games out of first place in the American League East. The trip marked Baltimore's first since 1997, a full year before Cal Ripken Jr. ended his famous 2,632-game streak.
But which team was better? Instead of choosing just one or the other, we are giving you the chance to draft your "fantasy" team comprised of players from both squads.
Please note, not all the players from each season are included; those chosen were picked for either extensive postseason or regular season play. Only a few players are shown for each pitching staff, but treat them as including all available players.
