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.
