    I am glad that the O’s decided not to rush Pie back to the parent club.

    From what Samuel said earlier today, this is a short term call up (unless, of course, he was “lights out”). Bell, himself, knows that he is not quite ready for the majors.

    Since everyone is basically on the same page, it seems to be a win-win. Pie gets a bit of time to get in physical and baseball playing shape. Bell gets some big league experience and some valuable information to help him in his inevitable call up in September and/or next April. And, the fans can get some more interest over the next few days or weeks.

    Well Zach Britton got a taste of the bigs tonight. 6 innings, 3 harmless hits, no walks, 11 groundouts and 4 K’s. Turn the 4-0 lead over to the bullpen in the 7th and sorry, Tides lose 7-5. At least now he knows how Brian and the other starters feel one step up.
