Johnny Cueto has a 1.31 ERA, Troy Tulowitzki has a .400 batting average, Charlie Blackmon has a .359 batting average. Meanwhile, Wade Miley has a 5.14 ERA, and RA Dickey has a 5.01 ERA. Should their teams demote them? Who cares what they've done in previous years?


I'll end this now and won't post again about the starters and how they CAN'T go deep into games. Truth is in what Roch reported. You don't see it, but it's a trend for the Orioles.

Oh by the way, the ERA's of Miley and Dickey is better than Gonzalez and Jimenez. You may want to try to dig a little deeper.

Well I wrong about Britton but was right about Gonzalez. MASN has Gonzalez to the pen temporarily.

If this move actually is temporary, I get it. Tillman might have an injury and Norris might get suspended. If this move is not temporary, I'm puzzled. Gonzalez, who just threw a gem by the way, has a 3.40 ERA after the first start. He's averaged over six innings per start in his career with the Orioles. No reason to put him in the bullpen.

Patton is now a free agent.

He shouldn't hold his breath waiting for a call from the Orioles.
