Using relief pitchers in the rotation

Recommended Posts

Although the 5th-7th pitchers in the bullpen have not be great, they are Cy Young caliber compared to our starters. Why not go 3 innings with each of them through 6 innings and if still in the game use the front of the bullpen? If we are blown out, we have Miley and Jimenez and maybe the others to blow it out more instead of starting out that way.

It would also give us a chance for pitchers like Bleier to see what they could do. Since the season is clearly shot, we could see perhaps Aquino, Ynoa as well. They can't be worse than what we are seeing now.

A 12-man bullpen with no starters sound pretty good.

As cumberbundy said, it couldn't be worse.

I've been arguing for something like this for a few weeks now. What do they have to lose? Nothing. I would occasionally lead with my big guns.

Tampa crushed us a bullpen starter earlier in the year.

It seems to me that the logical place the game will be in 15 years is no starters.

Forget starting the game off with relievers.   The idea is to avoid Tillman, Jimenez, and Miley altogether.    The O's are getting close to the point where they should maybe try stretching Bleier out (I think Wildcard already mentioned this) and taking a look at Lucas Long or just about anyone else with a pulse in the minors.
