The Orioles have drifted so far off the back burner they’re off the stove. That said, tip of the cap to Jeremy Guthrie.

He was sitting there at 6-17, and with 4 or 5 starts left, staring 20 losses in the face.  Not only did he say he wouldn’t beg out of the lineup if he got to 19 losses (and if I was Buck I would never put him out there with a chance at 20), but he actually said he was focused on winning those 4 games to get to double digits in wins.

Since then, he’s rattled off two tremendous starts.  Big deal that he’s 8-17? No.  Big deal that he has that kind of an attitude? To me, yes.  I kind of hope the Orioles trade Guthrie, not to give up on him, but he deserves the opportunity to play for a winner.

    You get the shovel of wisdom….. Guthre is PAID to pitch ALL SEASON if he is healthy….. If he is worried about loosing games PITCH BETTER… THROW MORE STRIKEOUTS….. As I said on Facebook ‘ When Ed Norris was in the police dept. and if the crime rate went up …did he take time off????? I dont think so…. BAM!!!!
