Drives home the point that we should have made a stronger effort to re-sign Saunders. I know he has had an up and down season but with this offense he would probably be 4-0 right now 8-)

What part of "he wasn't going to sign here for just one year" are you not willing to accept?

I wanted him too; but I thought it was a bad idea to give him more than one year guaranteed then, and I still do. It seems to get lost in the background, but we have control over Jurrjens through 2014. He may end up being a better pitcher than Saunders and not cost anymore next year.

Saunders in 2013:
- 5.25 ERA
- 4.82 FIP
- 3.5 K/9

Road: 12.51 ERA
Home: 0.81 ERA

Yeah, it's too bad we didn't re-sign Saunders.

Would be nice if Matt could get an RBI here.

Both him and Jones are in the top 5 in the AL.

Nice job by Tommy Hunter. O's still in command 6-2.

Just imagine what our record would be this year if we had last year's starting pitching.
