I would reckon his newfound "control" is really just that his strikes aren't getting blasted into the upper decks nearly as much in Korea.
But good for him, I'm glad he's still pitching and getting to do his thing. He's probably a lot happier these days.
Its will be a lot easier for the O's to add a quality FA bat than a quality FA pitcher IMO
Nationals market is much bigger than the O's market. On a normal business day you can't even get to Camden Yards from Northern Virginia for a 7 pm game unless you are willing to spend 2 plus hours in bumper to bumper traffic. Believe me, I have tried. Its a major deterrent. And its exhausting.
Baltimore is mid market team, as the Nationals are.
If the Orioles had a strong team, and was that one piece away, then I see them being bale to add 6/155, hell, they added Davis, didnt they. While it was money foolishly spent, it was spent.
I see Elias wanting to build this team for the long haul, and once they get a solid core going, then spend the money for quality FAs to complete the roster.
