Roch and Schmuck both express how much they are surprised by this move.  You can count me in for this as well. 

I know that he had options, but Brad was the only pitcher down there earning his spot in our rotation.  Guthrie pitched like crap in the WBC, but we know what he can do.  Uehara is being given a spot despite not really pitching this spring.  Hill is in a similar spot.

Then we have the out of option boys of Penn and Pauley.  Pauley has been downright awful, but Penn has been decent at times this spring.  They have the Baez experiment still going, and I can't blame them for trying it, but he has only had one, maybe two good outtings this spring among a mountain of bad ones.  The Eaton signing is ridiculous, and I was pissed when I heard about it.  Hendrickson is stuck on this team as well.

So, according to Schmuck, the veterans will be used to fill out the rotation (most likely).  Based on that information, we should be looking for Baez and Eaton to fill out our rotation.

Guthrie, Uehara, Hill, Eaton, Baez.

If this is our rotation to start the year, I may have to tune out the Orioles until someone comes to their senses.
