Can Koji go past 6 innings tonight? Probably not. As Koji Steps on the mound tonight at world famous Land Shark Stadium in front of what will be a sold out ruckus crowd (Yea right but I digress). Saying that there is going to be more than 10 thousand fans at the game tonight is like saying Koji will pitch past the 6th inning.
Anyway about tonight’s game Huff and Markakis should be back in the lineup tonight which will hopefully propel the orioles to get some more run support. If the decision were up to me I would put LUUUUKE in left field, but I am fine with Riemold just not Pie. By all means they are not facing a future CY young winner in Andrew Miller who is 2 and 3 with a 4.56 era. The good thing about Koji is he seems to be pretty reliable, although his record does not indicate it. You can normally depend on him to give you 5 or 6 good innings and then leave it up to the bullpen. This should be a winnable game but that is why you play the game. I will leave in saying Koji belongs in the bullpen.
