Incredibly, though not surprisingly, the O's braintrust has decided to go with a 6-man rotation for the time being, with Hayden Penn making the start Sunday against the A's. From today's Sun
With Penn joining the club, the Orioles will go with a six-man rotation with Rodrigo Lopez 's start being pushed back to Monday. Perlozzo said the rotation will be re-evaluated after Thursday's day off.
"We're going to have to make a decision," Perlozzo said. "We're going to be going four or five days [where guys will be throwing] with seven days' rest. I don't particularly like it. We're already on this nine-day road trip and Erik Bedard is going to pitch one time. It's not something I'd plan."
Gee, Sam. There is a way to avoid all of the irregularity with pitchers' rest. We could put our self-proclaimed Cy Young candidate Rodrigo Lopez in the 'pen.
It almost doesn't seem worth it to get mad any more.
