It's time to go back to a seven man pen

I'm about ready to blow up the whole damn thing.

This bullpen might need it soon. At some point, Hart and or Givens might need to be sent down to give them a break.

 

Blieir and Asher are likely gone after the game, especially if Ubaldo has to go in. 

 

I assume at least Edwin Jackson is added. Plus Ynoa.

I'll gleefully take pretty much anyone who throws with their right hand against this Tigers team.

I can't believe they won that game.  Got home from work just in time to see Givens walk the bases loaded and Brach give up the dinger, turned it right off and headed to the gym.  Great win.  

All that said, dear sweet lord the O's need to add some pitchers to the roster.  I don't even care if they have talent so long as they can throw strikes.  Seems like we're spotting the other team five to six base runners per game w/ the walk.  Enough already.

Kim is on the team but Buck rarely uses him.  If he's not going to be used he's just taking up space on the roster which we could bring up an extra arm to reinforce the bullpen.

Maybe I am in the minority, but I  don't think that the Norfolk Express works very well. We need some stability in the pen. I remember) Logan Verrett doing very well a week or so ago.  His reward? Down to the minors, bring someone else up. If nothing else,  travel is tiring. I don't know how they travel between Norfolk and Baltimore  (or from whatever opposing team city). Airlines? Has anyone been on a commercial jet recently, with those tiny shrinking seats, even in 1st class? Or do they use a private plane? Even that can be tiring. If pitchers constantly have to go back and forth on the Norfolk Express  they won't be in the best of shape when they are called to pitch. We need to have a 7 man bullpen.

They fly Delta Airlines on a chartered Orioles flight (with a special meal plan) usually.

I think when they need a guy in a hurry from Norfolk to an away city, they put them on the next available flight out, and they probably get business class, not first class.

And most Delta jets have  those tiny, reconfigured seats. Pitchers tend  to be tall,   so they will have problems fitting in, even in 1st/business class.  This will be true even in a chartered jet.

I like the express. I have very little emotional ties to any of them. Some f the guys just are not that good.

    • That is up to Mullins.   He is on the 40 man roster.  He will be in ST.   If he hits well  at Norfolk then he could be promoted to the O's.
    • He should’ve. Probably would’ve lashed it for a double. 
    • I'll take a crack .....Harvey has a 97mph + fastball that's deemed plus and a plus curveball and Hader. Hader has a low 90s fastball with a lot of movement. The reason he's been so successful is that his slider drastically improved from 2017 to 2018 in regards to his control.
    • Agreed ...but he looked much better the last start as well.
    • Ponies Stave Off Baysox, 4-3 Ripken records first Double-A home run.   BOWIE, Md. – Andres Gimenez drove in the go-ahead run in the eighth inning to lead the Binghamton Rumble Ponies to a 4-3 win over the Bowie Baysox in front of 2,236 at Prince George's Stadium Tuesday night.   Bowie (39-20) jumped out to a quick lead with a run in the first inning. A double and a flared single put runners on the corners for Carlos Perez, who beat out a potential double play to drive in Ryan McKenna on a fielder's choice.    Binghamton (26-36) tied the game on a bases-loaded walk in the second inning and took a 2-1 lead on a throwing error from Perez in the third inning. The hosts, however, answered in the bottom half of the third.   RHP Zach Lee had retired nine in a row until Jesse Valentin flared a single to shallow right-center field. One pitch later, Ryan Ripken lined a missile off the top of the right field billboards for his first career Double-A home run and a 3-2 lead.    Gimenez launched his seventh home run of the season to right-center field to immediately re-tie the game in the fifth inning, and then put the guests ahead with a RBI single in the eighth inning off reliever Zach Muckenhirn.    The Baysox and Rumble Ponies conclude their season series Wednesday afternoon at 12:05 p.m., when RHP Cody Sedlock (1-1, 2.95 ERA) seeks his second straight win against RHP Tommy Wilson (4-5, 4.57 ERA) during Summer Camp Day at the ballpark.
