  1. Yep, I agree. The Orioles have consistently held onto their pitching prospects the past 20 years hoping they would pan out, and consistently they (pitchers) haven't. My guess is it all stems from the Glenn Davis trade when the Orioles parted ways with two pitching prospects, who went on to have great (Schilling) and good (Harnisch) careers along with Steve Finley. It seems like after this, even though it was a different ownership regime, the team felt trigger shy about trading away their pitching prospects. But, I agree at age 27 Arrieta is no longer a prospect.
  2. Now that Strop is gone, what am I going to do with all my crooked hats?
  3. Unfortunately Ferguson Jenkins doesn't pitch anymore.
  4. Interestingly, Feldman has better overall stats this year than Hammel. I'm not too big on #1 starter vs. #2 starter, etc. since they all pitch every 5 days and with off days and rain outs, usually your #1 starter doesn't face the other team's #1 starter, so I don't really look at Feldman coming in here and being labeled as a top of the rotation guy (which he isn't). However, #1, #2, etc. is key in the post season since you can typically set your rotations the way you want it.
  5. I guess National league pitchers typically have shorter outings/innings per start. Look at it this way, Feldman will help the major league team this year. Arrieta & Strop were unlikely to do the same.
  6. I deleted mine too. Overall I'm happy with the trade.
  7. I like it too!
