I am like everybody else, excited about what Kevin Gausman has to offer on Thursday night.

We saw with Manny Machado last year that a player can get called up from Bowie, and have a positive impact.

That said, this is not what the Orioles wanted to happen. They wanted Gausman to get more seasoning in the minors, and probably do some time in Norfolk too. So, while this is an endorsement of Gausman’s abilities, it is also and indictment of others in the organization.

Jake Arrieta is on the ballclub, and the Orioles passed on him. Zach Britton is supposed to be a great prospect, but his stay up here was short. Steve Johnson only got one start. Jair Jurrjens was quickly dispatched.

Now, some of these guys will be back, but the fact that the Orioles were willing to speed up the clock on Gausman tells you what they think of some of their other players as well.
