Baltimore Orioles

They are the only team to stay undefeated throughout the start of the new season by winning their fifth game. It is the third time in franchise history that the team has begun with the same record and in the two previous occasions, they have gone on to play for the World Series crown (in 1970 the O's won and in 1944 they lost). In the Wild Card Era (since 1994), 14 clubs have had the exact same start, 8 of which advanced on to the postseason, 4 of which went on to the Fall Classic, and only 1 team, won it all (Kansas City last year, who won their first 7 contests).

Extra: Minnesota Twins have started off the season on a poor note, losing their first 6 games. Only three teams in the Major Leagues have recovered from a negative record like that to go on and reach the postseason.
