I was just looking at some numbers for the bullpen. They are incredible.
Take out Patton and Gregg, and Johnson, Lindstrom, Ayala, O'Day and Strop have combined to pitch 56 innings while allowing just 4 Earned Runs - a 0.64 ERA. Now take Strop out - the other 4 have pitched 43 innings and given up just 1 earned run - a 0.20 ERA! O'Day's 1 earned run is the only one they've given up.
Obviously it's not going to last, but all of these guys are pitching really, really well. If the O's starters can just go 5 or 6, this team will be in a lot of games. The offense is still deficient, so I think there are going to be a lot of tense nailbiters, but the Orioles are going to be in a lot of games this year if these guys keep it up.
