Buck personifying the attitude of 'Speak softly, but carry a big stick' - Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Not certainly how much it actually matters, but I would have to imagine that having some stability at the pitching coach position would be most beneficial to this club. Of course, I'd rather just have good pitchers, but every little bit will help for the O's.

Congrats to Eduardo Rodriguez and Tim Berry! Also, I wonder if Urrutia's advanced age kept him from being named to this game?

Camden Depot: Making the Orioles a Champion in 2014: Starting Pitchers - Part 2

LF & 2B are two glaring holes at the moment, but I think if the O's want to make the playoffs next season they are going to have to find the most improvement from the starting pitching. Tanaka and Ubaldo are at the top of my wish list, but I'd be quite happy with targeting Dan Haren thru free agency or either of the two mentioned trade candidates.
