    It’s frustrating that the O’s can’t keep fans in the loop, when all we have to look forward to is a guy like Arrieta for the future. Just another piece of work MacPhail is phailing at.

      Exactly. When we heard that Arrieta was scratched we think he’s going to be called up to the start for the Orioles, but no. He’s scratched and could be used in a bullpen role with the Orioles…

    Everyone wants him to replace Atkins on the roster for now, find a replacement for Atkins later or by trade. It is sad that they can’t even keep there players in the loop. Good way to piss off the players off.

      We don’t need Atkins, the decision to sign him was awful. Any way we can get Arrieta up here would be a plus.

    I dont see why a minor leaguer who’s never thrown a pitch in the majors needs to be in the loop of the inner workings of a big league organization. He should be pitching when they tell him to pitch and not worrying about everything else. These players worry too much about what their roles are and what the front office is doing rather then just playing baseball. Just my opinion

      I agree. These kids only need to think about the work they are putting in at the minor league level. When they reach the majors, that’s when they should start thinking about the majors. You need to take baseball one day at a time.
