Spring Training is less than a month away! Let us keep you company until the first pitcher-and-catcher workouts on Feb. 18 with a team-by-team countdown of reasons to get excited for the 2016 MLB season. Today: The Baltimore Orioles.

Life can be hard, no one denies that. We all have dreams and goals, like finally finishing that novel or somehow founding a 12-month baseball league in a magical land of endless summer.

But don't forget that MLB is here to help. We've given you motivational posters based on quotes by Zack Greinke  and Marcus Stroman … but what if you want your inspiration to be less about amazing hair and more about a granite-faced gravitas that only Mount Rushmore and a certain Beltway manager can provide?

Yes, Buck Showalter is here to help you live your best life. Remember, these are all things that he's actually said. He can be genuinely encouraging:
