So who do you guy's believe will be the Sunday SP?

I think it would be a great time to give Tilly an extra day off and let Mike Wright show what he's got!

What do you guys think?

I would love to see Wright pitching on Sunday honestly. It's a long season, next man up.
All indications are Tillman on normal rest. Wouldn't mind Wright though but he hasn't pitched in 7 Or 8 days. Don't want him to get in trouble early and tax the bullpen.

It will be Tillman. Unless Bud has a miracle recovery. Wright is emergency man. Angels with Trout and Pujols are probably not a great place to test him out.

The Angels might be the best team with which to test a young arm since they have the 2nd lowest run production in the AL. It's probably better to keep him in a long relief role and see if Tillman can get on track though.

Then why have him up if you're afraid to have him start VS Elite players? His first pro strikeout was Mark Texeira a few years back. It's a win win for the ball club, bullpen hasn't been worked much at all the past couple games, hopefully Ubaldo turns in a good finish tonight!

Not afraid of anything. Not experimenting. He will get in a game when it is appropriate. You have him up because you might need him.

He's up to replace the guy who never pitched and seems to be adjusting to his new role perfectly.

    • We’ll always have the no-hitter…
    • Do we know what his velocity was today? I know he doesn't light up the gun but was he at his normal? 
    • Longterm he’s probably that missing RH SU/MR that we’ve been looking for since the Fuji trade.  It’s probably Suarez vs Ramírez vs Tate for 1-2 bullpen spots. Wells and one of Irvin/Means could be in the bullpen mix as well.  Depth is good to have. I wouldn’t sleep on Ramirez either. Elias has shown a knack from adding relievers through trade or waivers. 
    • There's not a single high level prospect on the team he pitched against tonight and even the one out he got was crushed
    • Let’s tap the brakes on his move to the bullpen. His stuff plays and he can get outs. Best of all, he doesn’t walk anyone. He challenges hitters and gets weak contact. With our defense, I’d rather him give up the occasional double or flared hit to the outfield than to see walks. Keep him in the starting rotation until he proves he doesn’t belong. Wells and Irvin both have experience in the pen and frankly for Irvin, though I love him, has a real tough time throwing strikes at times.    anyway, let’s see what the old dog can do.
    • I could see Suarez sticking in a bullpen role long term with the movement on his fastball. Also he might be able to throw a 2 to 3 more MPH harder not having to worry about trying to pitch six innings. The Orioles have done a good job finding pitchers who weren't expected to do much in recent years and it would be cool if Suarez is another find.
    • I mean, heres where we really find out if Holliday is cut out for the majors and if he has the character to fight through major adversity right off the bat right?  Saw a good point that there was a guy previously that started 4 of 55, and that was ole #8.  Mike Trout didnt get his batting average up to .200 until May 31st of his first season.  Ideal? Absolutely not.  But when the franchises all-time hits leader started with the same slump its something to pay attention to.
