Jake was just depressed because he wasn't called up after his good games in Norfolk. Emotionally stable that one. We thought we'd get him back on track.

I'm honestly irked that Jake is getting yet another chance after showing no desire to fix his issues.

How many different pitches are we going to see in his 3 inning start?

It is curious that they skipped Britton's start in Norfolk and they aren't calling him up.

They were probably waiting to see if Arrieta was needed in relief today. I have a feeling he will be optioned after tomorrow's game no matter what to add more depth to the bullpen or for Britton on Tuesday. Plus this allows them to leave Gausman in Norfolk.

Can't think of an Oriole pitcher that aggravates me more when watching him. Not even Strop.

Really? As Buck would say. Jake gives up 15 runs in his last two games at AAA and now they are going to start him vs the Tigers. It doesn't have a good sound to it.

If he pitches really well I wonder if he's packaged in a trade with Strop. It could be the two guys with tremendous arms and upside who become emotionally undone when pitching.

Figure them out and win a prize!

The only way this makes any sense to me is that the team isn't sure if Hammel will be able to start on Tuesday. Therefore, they need to hold Britton in reserve for Tuesday. They could have demoted Arietta and called up Britton to make the start tomorrow, but then there wouldn't have been anyone left to start in place of Hammel on Tuesday.

I sure hope this is the reasoning, anyway. They can't honestly believe that Arietta is the best person for the 5th starter job right now.
