So, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch the Cardinals signed Kyle Lohse to a one year deal. I guess he meant it when he said the American League was like arena baseball. He had no desire to come out to Baltimore with his mediocre history and the toughest division in baseball. I don't know, I'm fine with this. But where does this leave the Orioles' staff?
What happens if Loewen's injury keeps him out for more than a month? Which pitcher this spring have proved capable of being on a major league team? With Penn already down in Sarasota, that removes him from the picture leaving Burres, Olson, Albers, Leicester, and Liz to fill one, possibly two spots in the rotation.
Personally, I'm all about Liz, Olson, and Albers. They've been to the big show before and done fairly to reasonably well in the majors. With Liz and Olson's progress this spring, I'm thinking they could take a spot in the rotation with Albers and Burres taking over as long men.
