This is not a slight against Miguel, but I hope the Orioles have five SPs that are better than him next year. It would be quite a rotation. He really gets the best out of his talent but he needs to be more efficient with his pitches, just like several other of our young pitchers. You would like to see them pitching into the Seventh Inning or longer consistently. Our bullpen was great this year but that's not something you can count on every year. By taking the strain off of them by having the rotation average 6+ innings or better a game you reduce the need for long men and allow some of the nastier guys to go just an inning at a time, once or twice a week.

Not many people had much faith in the 3 of them so I don't get what you mean.
He doesn't seem to get rattled and isn't afraid to challenge hitters. Wouldn't it be nice to say that about Arrieta?

He has great poise and solid command with his fastball. Hitters just don't hit him. He deserves every shot to be in the rotation next year.
I want five pitchers that can go seven or more innings all the time.
