The catastrophe? Or the contender?

How long will some of the ERA’s you mentioned last vs the competition we face? I can see Means and Cobb do well. The rest we would be lucky to have one of 3 pitch ok. 

That's very possible.   Stay tuned.

Thing is they will need Means and Cobb to chew up innings. Even with the expanded rosters the staff will not hold up. 

15 games left until trade deadline.

The problem with the starting pitching is any or all of them could implode at any time. With Means dealing with health concerns, there are no reliable starters. It would not be shocking for ANY of them at ANY time to go out and give up 7 runs over 3 innings.

With the ball the pitchers are playing with that is true of almost every pitcher in the league.

You don't think Means is healthy?

Not sure. I haven't been able to watch every game but didn't he have some health issues this year?

Yes, but he came but throwing 95 mph.  Then he left the team because his father died.

I think there are 3 phases left of the season. 

Who are we -16 games ends month 

WAS -2

TOR-3

BOS-4

@TB -3

@Tor -4

Hold on for life -12 games 

NYM-2

NYY-4

@NYM-2

@NYY-4

Sprint to finish  -13 games 

ATL-3

TB-4

@Bos-3

@Tor-3

You could combine the first 2 games we play Mets in first phase but that also ends month and trade deadline.

Although that is correct, I don’t see any logic to continuing to throw guys onto the mound when we have better in the wings, who are ready for the big leagues. Akin, Kremer, Lowther And possibly Zimmerman, are the names that I keep going back to as being ready for the season.

I didn't realize the ball made really good pitchers and journeymen with 5.50 ERAs basically the same thing.  I guess that's how the O's have started so well.

The Buffalo Blue Jays?  Of course we are.

I don't think the O's are better than the Rays.
