Most Underrated Oriole

Rejoice. We are finally .500. It is refreshing to be .500 almost by Memorial Day weekend. Good times in Birdland. Now time to figure out why we are mediocre (in a good way). Stars have struggled: Luke Scott, Brian Roberts, Nick Markakis, Mark Reynolds, Brad Bergesen, the entire bullpen. And we have sustained injuries: Brian Roberts, JJ Hardy, Brian Matusz, Justin Duchscherer. Now I want to poll birdland, which player has exceeded expectations the most AND gone unnoticed. Obviously there has been a lot of hoopla around Zach Britton and yes he has exceeded any and all expectations. I am specifically looking for an unsung hero type of vote.

stats before today

Adam Jones: 25 runs, 6 homers, 28 RBI's, 5 SB's, .306 AVG, 12 BB, 31 K's

Jake Arrieta: surprising stat I read on ESPN, 8 quality starts, only 8 starters have more this season. 61 IP/11 starts ERA 4.57, 9 HR allowed K:BB 56:27 WHIP 1.31.

Jim Johnson (my boy) 22 appearances WHIP 1.11 ERA 3.21 K:BB 23:5 3HR allowed.

Jeremy always solid Guthrie 60 IP 10 starts (1 bs relief appearance) ERA 3.45 WHIP 1.13 K:BB 36:10

The Showalter effect- good managing=wins?

Zach Britton 65 IP 10 Starts ERA 2.35 WHIP 1.12 K:BB 35/21

Please vote. And let's celebrate mediocrity. WOOO.

This is birdland.
