Yep, it's burnt us big time thus far. Pena and Dukes were called up way too early and it's showing. Young looks like crap so far but it's only been 1 game.

Yes but he has looked bad.

Pena should be outright released.  He won't get anything in a trade, and he is just terrible. 
I almost wish we could get Fruto back from the D'backs. 

Two nice plays by Dukes.

Peña should be sent down to AAA and forced to stay there until September. That's what he needs.

That's pretty much game.  No way we are getting anything off of Sherrill. 

He's not that good. He's pitched well, but he's hardly untouchable.

Dukes is going to hit a HR in this game.

It may or may not contribute to a winning effort, but that's just my gut feeling.

Great outing by Chico.

Shame we can't score any runs off of a bunch of mediocre pitchers.

We couldn't get anything off of Mike Pelphrey.  Sherrill will look like Nolan Ryan to us.

Chico looks great out of the bullpen.

:lol:

Sherill's been clutch. With the youth on the O's staff, he's been just what we needed.

I'm going to the game tomorrow night. If Wily Mo, Lastings and Dukes are all starting I'll be pissed.

This has been a pretty great game so far. Entertaining, at least. Gotta hit Albers here. He's got some sick stuff, but he will hang some.

Huh? I've been close to turning this crap off a few times.

If we don't score 2 here it's over.

I keep hoping for that every AB. But he watches all of the pitches he should kill and he swings at the crap. :?

you are a different breed than everyone else. losing by 2 runs to you is like losing by 10 for us.  anything less than perfection is the most embarassing performance you've ever seen.

Losing by 2 runs is pretty much equal to losing by 10 with our offense. no joke

Good memory! Yep...I'll be behind the Nats on-deck circle, about 20 rows back.
