Baltimore Orioles: Lack of pitching depth mocked by rival fans
In what should not come as much of a surprise, the sad state of the Baltimore Orioles rotation is being mocked by fans of opposing teams.
In fact, a New York Yankees fan with a blog is looking forward to facing the Baltimore Orioles pitching (or lack thereof) in 2018.
In an editorial blog on Pinstripe Alley, Yankees fan Kento Mizuno enthusiastic went on and on about how enjoyable it will be for fans like him to face the pitching in Birdland. Of course, a blog post like his shows how irritating Yankees fans actually are.
And it shows that the Orioles aren’t the only team with a frozen solid Hot Stove. The Yankees haven’t done much since signing Giancarlo Stanton and re-signing CC Sabathia. (Sadly, it’s more than the Orioles have done).
Two guys isn’t enough
But, Mizuno isn’t wrong as the big boppers on the Yankees squad will most likely have some serious fun against the pitching rotation that he described as:
"“Dylan Bundy, Kevin Gausman, and some dudes they found off Craigslist.”"
Honestly, he’s not that far off.
The Orioles front office has got to do better and field a team that is worth watching. The odds are good that Camden Yards will be filled with fans from nearby teams as they come to watch their favorite players tee off on those guys “off Craigslist.”

Fish or cut bait
February is closing in quickly. It appears that Bundy and Gausman will be joined in the rotation by Miguel Castro and mystery players. This is not good news. It would be better news to hear that the Orioles have decided to rebuild than to even try to consider the team contending with the rest of AL East.
Stuck in limbo
The Orioles seem to be stuck in no man’s land. Yes, the team has a few outstanding players like Manny Machado, Jonathan Schoop, and Adam Jones. But why put them on a team that trots out mystery pitchers on a daily basis? What good does that do for men who should be playing on teams that have front offices dedicated to delivering a quality team hell-bent on winning? Nothing at all.

It comes as no surprise that rival teams’ fans are chomping at the bit to see their teams take on the Orioles in 2018. It shouldn’t take much for those opposing teams to get wins. It’s like Oprah will be living at Camden Yards in 2018 screaming “Everybody gets a win!” to all of the visiting teams.
