I think even if it all seems to be clicking for him he is probably the candidate that most needs to go down. This way he makes sure everything is fixed and not just pitching in a groove and gain confidence by dominating AAA hitters for a month or so. I think the race is between Britton and SJohnson. Matusz is still in there, then JA...I am one who still believes in him. I think going down is the best for him to maximize is potential. I still believe that he will be a big part of 2013 and beyond.

All of these guys (Including Tillman) have had ample time to learn how to get through an inning. If that means being sightly more hittable and hoping for your defense to make a play then so be it. But this nonsense of being at 100 pitches come the 5th inning has to stop. (Please note I didn't research that last statement, but it sure seems accurate)

I would love to cut bait with Arrieta. To my thinking, he is just a major distraction in trying to assemble a quality pitching staff. No question, he has ability but doesn't know what to do with it when the chips are down. Guys like that break your heart every time IMHO
Sorry but I sincerely hope Arrieta is moved this offseason. This guy has killed us at key moments this year. Time to drop anchor and let that ship sail
Please get Arrieta off this ballclub!!!!
Arrieta is terrible. Hopefully his time ends soon in Baltimore. Time for a change
Arrieta (along with Matusz) will be useful pieces in someone else's organization next year. Tired of waiting for potential. Just give my more Joe Saunders types!!!!!
