I agree. Cashner is an inexpensive, low risk addition, if he's placed in the #4 spot. And if Tillman is the #5, no problem. Any other configuration of the rotation would reduce the Cashner signing to the category of, "the O's continue to go the cheap route"

If memory serves (no guarantee these days) Wright had finally found his niche as a long reliever before his injury last year. Resurfacing him as a possible starter defies logic.

The rule 5 pitchers we picked up from the Yankees are interesting, but clearly a long shot as starters compared to signing just one established #2 or even a top #3.

Maybe it's a pipe dream, but if our hitters didn't think the only way to win because of sub-par pitching was to hit a bases empty 3-run HR, perhaps the offense would be more consistent too if the SP was at least adequate.

He looks really good.  Looks like a pitcher now and not just a hard thrower like I remember from his days in SD. May have figured it out.
