The Orioles blew great opportunities to put together a real dynasty in the 1970s and become the MLB team of the 1970s.  Yes, they won two World Series from 1966-71 and won three American League Championships and four AL Eastern Championships from 1966-73.  They could easily have accomplished so much more but instead they lost the 1969 World Series to the New York Mets, an inferior team even with their great pitching.  They then did not play up to their capabilities against the Pirates in the 1971 World Series.
