Interesting to note that the Reds' pitcher, Tom Parrott, batted 7th. He pitched 41 games in '94, but also played 28 games in the field. He OPS'd .853, which was good but only a bit higher than the league average in what was an exceptionally high scoring season.
In 129 games the Orioles scored 1171 runs, or just over nine a game. To put that into context, the Rockies' worst pitching season was 1999, when they allowed 1028 runs in 162 games, or 6.3 per game. And they've never scored 1000 in a season.
The Orioles will have no issues with the 40 man as most of their players don't belong on it in the first place. So if you lose a player big deal by putting him through the 40 man it is no big deal. And you can put guys on the 45 day IL easily enough. The season is only 60 games. So if anyone gets injured 45 day IL here they come.
