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
