    Any Orioles fans want to buy my Adam Jones M's Jersey? Worst sportswear purchase of my life...barely wore the thing before the man was gone..a damn shame.

    Their bullpen is a mess and Johnson is not an MLB calibre closer. Eventually it's going to start costing them games.

    No disrespect keyboarding, but not sure what you mean by this. I wouldn't say they have a great pen but they've been doing pretty well IMO. L10 games... 2.38 ERA, 3.13 xERA, 3.88 FiP, 1.24 WHIP, ratio of 59:20 Gb/Fb. They did get swept by the Yanks and lost 2 in overtime but have won all the other series and is 2-0 vs CWS with 2 more games to go in this series. Johnson also has converted all 5 of his save opps. Granted its still early in the season but not really much to complain about "yet" on their bullpen. Baltimore as a whole has been making me $$ so far. Now that I've said that, watch, later today... bullpen gets shelled. Hunter may get a shot at beating Peavy tomorrow and give Balt the win in this series then Hammel will probably get shelled vs Floyd IMO. Regardless how this turns out, that's my take on Balt. Good luck on your plays bro.

    Not for real.
    Pitching is below average
    Errors in fielding
    Batting is ok
    Very tough division

    They started 8-0 last year and well

    Jim Johnson has great stuff but he must pitch ahead or he is very predictable. That late action high 90's fastball and sinker is pretty nasty

    I am a Yankees Fan but I will bet you they finish higher than the red sox if you feel so strongly about them being bad.

    Oh, and your tag line above your AVI is a bet that is drawing dead 10 games into the season. If you wanna bet that one too lemme know. I'm on the under for even money.

    Giants are drawing rigamortis. Lincecum has a torn UCL and doesnt know it yet. He will have an MRI by the end of the month-

    they arent for real. but they are definitely capable of putting good streaks together. at the end of 2010 when buck showalter came on board they were one of the best teams in baseball.

    Good team, but plays in the toughest division. If pitching performs well, they might surprise many, but playoff spot is most likely out of the question.

    Get rid of Timmay now before he has no value. If you wait you will end up with Jamie Moyer which isnt bad.

    Timmay will be on the DL within his next 5 starts.

    All indications are his elbow is messed up. Not throwing sliders, velocity and command off-

    Bobby Valentine is a cancer. He must be replaced. The booze brothers will tank until the front office has no choice but to get rid of him.

    im a sox fan and i'll take that bet. you must be kidding yourself

    You bring up being a Yankees fan as if it makes you more credible with this call.

    so far their OPS vs Lefties is 2nd best in baseball, they are smashing lefties. only TB better. Tampa #s vs lefties is off the charts.

    I don't see that bullpen keeping them winning as the season progresses. When Kevin Gregg was the potential closer if Johnson struggled out of the gate you know you have problems.

    I do not think they are any better than 75-77 wins in the long run. But that will be more than enough for me.
