So how do you fix the rotation?

So in honor of Tillman raising his ERA to 8.39 the question becomes how do you fix the rotation if you can? 

At AAA Jayson Aquino seems like the only guy who could do something but his ERA is still above 4 and he has iffy stuff.

The only guy I can think of is Lucas Long but he was just put back in the rotation.

So thoughts?

Aquino and Long aren't fixing the rotation. It's putting a band aid on a bullet wound. There is no way to fix the rotation at this point. The only hope is they can get it together and pitch a little closer to their career norms. Tall order.

That's about it. If they don't pitch close to the norms there is no fix.

Well said.  Years of farm system neglect is finally catching up to us.  We either make it with our current rotation, or we don't.

And trading away the few viable arms you did have.  I'm worried Duquette is going to trade in the last few chips in an effort to make the wildcard.

Trade for Scott Feldman. haha.  I hope this is a joke.  

DD will trade Harvey, Sisco, Scott, Mountcastle, Akin, and throw in a 2018 1st round pick for him.  He won't trade Flaherty he said, because he was a rule 5 player.

The only thing that could fix the rotation is a time machine. 

Ha ha I was literally just about to suggest this.

 

Go kidnap Palmer and company name their primes and transport them back to 1997.

 

Our current rotation is totally overwhelmed and outmatched against pretty much everyone.

Angels may be sellers, this guy Bridwell hit 98mph tonight and managed to work around Miley like walks in Ny, no easy task. 

Bridwell? Man, if only the Orioles had someone like him. Though they would probably only use him once or twice in a bullpen spot and then DFA him for a team to pick him up and let him show what he can do as a starter.

Man, good thing the Orioles would never be THAT dumb...

For all the screaming about what a mistake it was to let Bridwell go, he really has not shown much this season.  He's got a 1.448 WHIP in his magnificent 9.2 innings in the bigs this season, so he's been lucky in not giving  up runs.  And in his 40.1 minor league innings this season, he has a combined 5.80 ERA.
