JTrea81 Posted August 18, 2009 Share Posted August 18, 2009 When you're talking about trading our pitching for Adrian Gonzalez I'd say it's very pertinent...Any 1st grader could tell you that if a team gives up the most Earned Runs in all of baseball, has the highest Batting Average against, and has the highest team ERA, there is zero chance that they will compete...not even an all star team could post enough runs to overcome that deficit. Do you realize what this means?How on earth could trading away the pitching, the solution to our bottom dwelling, the worst statistical category of the Orioles, be the answer to the reason why we don't compete? The thought is so asinine it makes me sick. ...as is the fact that you consider the two unrelated. Because there is a chance that our pitching will not reach its potential and it's better to trade those arms now while they still have maximum trade value. Gonzalez is also one of the best fielding 1B men in MLB so he actually helps the pitching by generating offense and providing good defense. The rotation can also survive without Tillman if we sign a good FA starter. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
