Koji

Games like tonight make you wonder how good this team would be if we had an owner that was willing to open the pocket book and would outbid his AL East rival the Red Sox for Koji Uehara. Koji or Strop? For Peter the answer is simple. Strop he costs us less money.

Koji has pitched 30 innings. I really dont think anyone guessed that he would be 4 million dollars more valuable than Pedro. Especially after watching Pete in the WBC. Sometimes you err. BTW. Welcome to the board.

Strop didn't really blow it tonight though. Markakis and Hunter did. Markakis misplayed Encarnacions fly ball, which shouldve been the 3rd out, and then Lind hits a really good pitch out for a 2 run homer. Then Hunter gives up a 2 run homer to Kawasaki.

I agree that we need to replace Strop with another good reliever, but I don't really blame him for tonight. It just wasnt our game. The Jays are hot right now and every thing seems to be going their way. We are still a much better team though. Once their pitching goes back to its regular ****** self, they won't be anything to worry about.

Relief pitching wasn't really an area of need in the offseason why would DD spend time trying to get more relievers? Tommy Hunter has stepped in an been just as good as Koji would have been. I am 100% certain that even if the O's signed Uehara then Strop would still be on the team.

Based on Strop's performance at the end of last season bullpen help should have been looked at as a need.

O's 7-6 loss at TOR is 12th time O's have scored 5 or more runs in a defeat. By far the most among AL contenders. #pitching

Koji would have helped this team immensely. Peter wouldn't pay him.

Koji would have helped. Peter needs to put some of his millions/billions back into the team.

I've never been a fan of PGA, but I don't blame him for not signing Koji. That's on DD. IMO, DD didn't want to sink 4 mil or multi years, which may have nabbed him, into Koj. I think it was a mistake. It especially hurts because Koji's pitching well for BOS.

I have no inside information, but I think PGA thinks DD spends the Orioles money wisely so he would have given him money for Koji, DD just want it.
