We can not trade Guthrie. If the O's are having a difficult tiime finding 4 good start, how on earth are they going to find 5??? Yes we have some prospects at Bowie and Fredrick but we have had so many pitchers look that good at AA and even AAA such as our all of starter who are not named Guthrie. The only starting pitchers that sseems to have panned out is Bedard and Mussina. If we get another outfielder and have the best young outfield in Major leagues but what difference does it make if we have lousy start pitching such as we have now.
Surprisingly, the O's have consistently scored runs this year. It has been poor pitching and careless base running that have killed us this year. We cannot trade Guthrie - we need to add starters around him. Yes we do have glaring holes, but trading your best pitcher without an equivalent replacement is not the answer.
because pitchers arms get hurt real quick
because he will get us a ss plus 2 solid players
because we are nowhere and going nowhere fast
because 1 decent pitcher does not mean squat
break it all the way down
I love guthrie too but who cares if we lose 90 or 105
we need talent galore
