Tuesday Morning’s Crabs and Beer

May 12, 2009 | Glenn Clark

If Luke Scott does head to the DL, I would imagine Oscar Salazar will be the guy to get called up. The Orioles are not ready to commit to Nolan Reimold, so the call-up wouldn’t really make that much sense.

I also get the feeling tonight might be Mark Hendrickson’s final twirl in the rotation, at least for now. Rich Hill is ready to do; although I’m not exactly certain what a healthy Rich Hill even gives the Birds.

Let’s see what everyone else has to say…..
