What is the Orioles biggest need?

I was just wondering what everybody thought the Orioles biggest need was. Obviously the Orioles are off to a good start but have overachieved. The Bullpen has been great and the offense ranks in the top 10 in runs scored. However the starting Pitching has been bad with Hunter and Arrieta being just deplorable for the most par and the offense is getting limited production from several spots.

I initially assumed that the Pitching would hands down be where the O's need to improve and they do but the only starter who seems to have been awful all around is Arrieta and he could be replaced by Zach Britton. However you can never have enough pitching and perhaps You all feel that the Orioles need more Starters and starters like Dempster or Colon should be targeted.

Or perhaps the Orioles biggest need is their offense as Left Field, 3rd base and the DH spot have not been particularly productive areas and it does not seem that the Orioles are interested in handing left field over to Xavier Avery just yet so their are some definite openings. The Orioles have also been linked to Justin Morneau and any number of players would be upgrades over what the Orioles are putting at 3rd right now. Perhaps no though, maybe the offense will sort itself out and they just need to concentrate on Pitching.

Answer the poll and throw out some names.
