Tuesday Morning’s Crabs and Beer

March 17, 2009 | Glenn Clark

Your Orioles rotation will be Jeremy Guthrie, Koji Uehara, Adam Eaton, Hayden Penn, and Brian Bass.

I’d ALMOST bet money on it.

I’m not to torn up about Radhames Liz not being a part of the rotation. If this rebuilding plan DOES somehow work out; Liz’s future would be in the bullpen anyway. I don’t think Liz can pitch any more than I think Adam Eaton can pitch; they’re both terrible.

This is the problem with deciding that you have no desire to win and you’re just willing to throw anyone out on the mound. Adam Eaton is a guy no one wanted and he might well be the #2 starter if Uehara isn’t healthy.

Not that Uehara is much of a #2 starter anyway.
