DateQuestionAnswer
2009-02-10 14:00:00 (link to chat)It seems like the Orioles have been pitching-prospect heavy for years, but nothing ever comes of it. This year there's Troy Patton, Jake Arrieta, and Chris Tillman. Is there any reason for hope or do we have to wait for 2010 and Brian Matusz?
(Gunpuddy from Nashville, TN)
There's every reason for hope. Even if we set aside Matt Wieters--which we shouldn't--this should be the most interesting Orioles team in years. Adam Jones, Felix Pie, a real shortstop... that's going to be a good defensive team. The pitching should be a bit better to boot, although I guess the really interesting question isn't whether or not they have talent, it's whether or not Dave Trembley's the skipper who can sort it out and use it to good effect. Lurching from one in-season replacement to the next is no way to operate, but Trembley's track record hasn't moved in any particular direction, and on a team that needs to be serious about how it creates situations for its young pitching to succeed, we're going to have to see something here and now. (Christina Kahrl)
2008-03-28 14:00:00 (link to chat)How does Troy Patton's injury affect his longterm projection? He was being labeled as a potential #3, but a safe bet to reach his ceiling. Does this still hold?
(O's fan from San Francisco)
The combination of Patton's limited upside and a shoulder injury effectively renders him a zero until further notice. That's harsh, I know, but he's off the radar until 2010, in my opinion. (Joe Sheehan)
