The Orioles need a starter on the bump. With Dylan Bundy currently resting his arm in the hopes that he will be able to avoid going under the knife, they will apparently turn to their other phenom on the hill, Kevin Gausman, Thursday. What should you be thinking about when considering whether Gausman is worth adding to you staff? The Orioles, Rays, Rockies and Nationals are dealing with some issues in their bullpens (I didn't even have the time to discuss the rocky situation that the Dodgers are currently trying to sort out with Kenley Jansen and Brandon League). What will those teams do moving forward in the 9th inning? Up the middle the Rays have a guy who is trending up while the Athletics have a guy that's heading south. We'll discuss.
Turns out Melky Cabrera wasn't the only Bay Area player who has been cheating. Major League Baseball announced Wednesday that Bartolo Colon has been suspended 50 games for PED use ending his 2012 season and possibly his career. Another hurler continues to soldier on pitching very well without the results to show for it. That man is the Phillies' Cliff Lee. Manny Machado – has been been a disappointment? What should you be thinking with Wil Myers? Who is the best saves guy to add off the waiver-wire? Which outfielder – Crisp or DeJesus – looks like a better add at the moment? I've got answers for you in this piece.
Some days you wake up with a plan. Other days you roll out of bed and have a hard time making it to the shower. I had one of those mornings today, so I'm not going to fight it, I'm just going to plow ahead in a haphazard manner and see what kind of trouble I can get into. How does that sound? I'll give some thoughts on A.J. Burnett and the Orioles' bullpen while also getting straight jiggy wit it and just randomly letting the fur fly. And yes, I have no idea what that means either.
