Yes, yes, but he’s better than the last ‘ace’ they signed.

Hey, every ace can’t be expected to make the playoff roster

O's have won every game in which they've scored at least four runs. Maybe they need the guy they are already paying to be Superman to perform at least as well as Clark Kent.

Guy only works every 5th start.  I'm not sure what kind of miracle you guys are expecting.

He's Alex Cobb.  He's not Clayton Kershaw, Chris Sale or Max Scherzer.  

Yes but he makes the rotation much better.

I'm expecting about a 111 ERA+, and that will feel pretty amazing I would think.

I guess your definition of much better and my definition of much better are two different things.  

Yes, he makes it better.  Demonstrably so, I'm not sure.

You’re kidding, right?     

Cobb: 3.50 ERA (111 ERA+)

Wright: 5.94 ERA (72 ERA+)

That’s not demonstrably better?    That is a huge upgrade.

How much impact does that one upgrade have on the quality of the entire rotation?

Probably lower the overall ERA of the rotation by .4 runs a game, I’d estimate.    And probably lower the innings pitched by the bullpen by 20 or so.

With Cobb I guess 30 innings.
