I just didn't see the point of trading away a consensus top 75 prospect for two months of a guy they really didn't need at a position that really has a very limited impact on the game. With a stronger farm system, it might have been understandable but the Orioles had a very thin, top heavy farm system. To thin it out even more for a rental reliever was always going to be a mistake. 

How many chances considering what I brought up will we have? Miller dominated for us. 

Here is the thing. If we were Boston or NY many of the trades Dan made never happen because we would have signed some FA to fill the gap. No International spending while you are winning makes it extremely difficult to build a strong system. 

I get the other side of the argument. I really do.

With no evidence, I have often mused that during the regular season the difference maker is often the quality of the 4th and 5th guys.

Hard to name many fifth starters who were good. Atlanta in the 90's...

I think unless you have a dominant top 3 it is hard to just give away a game every 5th time out.

I think he has "isn't a major league pitcher anymore".

Seriously.  I don't think it is fixable.  He had all offseason to figure something out, this is what we got.

I don't disagree.

That is crazy! I wonder what is the record.

They don't have to be good, just better than the other guy's 5th starter and keep you in more games than their guy.

Even then, who would keep running Tillman out every fifth game? Even if you had Gibson, Seaver and Palmer...
