I'd guess that they will still sign someone like Brault in addition to the Lyle's signing.
I don't care for the signing, but if he can pitch to a shade over 5 ERA and 170-180 innings he'd be an ace in Baltimore.
I don't get this at all. Seems like 7M should buy a better pitcher for a year. Lyles is the kind of guy you sign right before spring training starts. Obviously they see something they think they can fix, I sure hope they're right.
