Isn't the real problem the fact that Hyde is only having them face three batter each? We need guys who can get anyone out and last more than 3 freakin' batters. The O's are tired and the relievers are not just mostly ineffective, but I think they are also losing confidence. I agree with the poster(s) who believe we won't go far into the playoffs. I just don't think we have the quality arms to get us through tough, high leverage situations in a playoff atmosphere.
The player association doesn't want another owner doing everything on the cheap. They would rather have another White Sox/Angels team with a bloated payroll and mediocre record than another Tampa type team.
Gunnar Henderson hasn't faltered at all, he's got a 999 OPS in the last 15 games and a 908 OPS in September....Our pitchers will be just fine after they get 5 days rest at the end of the year before we start the division series
The WS is already played to late in the season, it's not a cold weather sport so why play the most important games in November....Expand the roster and play true doubleheaders so they can schedule more off days and have the WS end by the middle of October....
