Mel started by talking about Chris Tillman and how he can be so great one night and then come back and be awful the next night. Mel summed it up in two words “that’s baseball” and that match-ups can make guys look like world beaters than terrible even inside of the same game.
Mel then talked about how over worked the bullpen has been and how it may make a guy like Brad Brach who pitched great for the Orioles last night get sent down to triple A tonight. And Mel talked about the pay scale and how much it drops from big league pay to triple A wages.
Mel also talked about what it will take for the Orioles to be able to keep nelson Cruz.
