Glaring Difference In Comparing Orioles to Angels and Yankees!

Forget about the offense comparison, I just cannot get over how extreme the difference is between the Angels/Yankees starting pitching and bullpen to the Orioles. A lot of discussion is floated around here on a daily basis about the Orioles becoming competitive in the AL East but if you just look at the difference that exists between true WS contenders in the Angels and Yankees and how their starting pitching and bullpen performs and you can see the Orioles are not even in the same zip code when it comes to talent and performance. I seriously doubt even one Oriole BP pitcher would even make either team's roster for example. Anyone who actually thinks the Orioles could possibly compete with either of these teams next season is living in Fantasy Land. You could combine the best position players, starters, and bullpen between the Orioles and Toronto and still not realistically compete with either team next year.

In that case we should have kept George! :eek:

I agree he was the only member of the Orioles pen who would even make a roster of a playoff team, and he was their best. That just shows how sorry the talent is on the current Orioles team. I think McPhail has tons of work remaining and I think he needs to move faster if he ever expects to make any significant headway in actually improving this team. I just don't see it as happening. When you see teams like the Yankee and Angels the Orioles realistically seem more like a high grade Triple A team in comparison, with their bullpen more like a double A pen.

Wait a minute, wait a minute, wait a minute -- are you telling me that the team with the 3rd worst record in baseball this year, the team that almost lost 100 games isn't as good as the last two teams standing in the American League?! :eek:

Ladies and gentlemen, I think OldFan may have uncovered an ugly truth here.

Really what a shocking truth revealed. The Yankees and Angels are better than the Orioles. Must have taken weeks of analysis to figure that out - or a two second look at the standings after 162 games.

There are a BUNCH of folks on this board that believe we will go to the World Series next year with the staff that we have. They believe everyone will magically "get better" next year.

Look at any team that finished with 85+ wins and you'll see how much work still needs to be done on a team with a GM that doesn't believe in spending money and in a league that doesn't have a salary cap.

We are about 55% to where we need to be.

I doubt anyone ACTUALLY believes that we will win the WS next season
