Will poor old Kevin Millwood ever win a game?

Written by on May 4, 2010 in Orioles - 5 Comments

There’s been a lot of talk about what the Orioles have been doing wrong so far this year, but there hasn’t been much talk on what they could do to turn this season around.

What do you think the Orioles can do (with existing resources) to get things going in the right direction? Is there no hope? The Baltimore Guide wants to hear YOUR opinion!

Each week The Baltimore Guide poses a question about the Orioles that we’ve deemed to be just enough to get your discussions off the ground. Feel free to join in and enlighten us with your O’s knowledge.

Will poor old Kevin Millwood ever win a game?

Since the Orioles swept Red Sox Nation last weekend, have we proved once and for all that steamed crabs are better than boiled lobstah?

This week’s topic: If you were Dave Trembley, what the heck would you do till the All-Star break when you might get Roberts and Pie back?

    Just pulled a stat showing Millwood’s numbers vs. the Seattle Mariners…. not so good. For his career, he has an 8-12 record against Seattle with an ERA of 5.05. Hopefully he can shake past memories and get his first win already.

    Not kidding, Andy, unfortunately. McDonald did the standup color for the Tuesday, May 4, game against the Yankees. Let’s just hope that MASN couldn’t find anyone else!

    Doesn’t seem likely.

    Millwood should get a win against in one of his next two starts. He pitches against Minnesota but then comes back home to face Seattle, who is actually hitting worse than the O’s (.233 team average for the Mariners). The Mariners are barely scoring over 3 runs per game, so as long as the O’s can improve upon the 2.7 runs per game they give Millwood, he should get a win soon. He kind of reminds me of Jim Abbott circa 1992 when about had a dismal record of 7-15 but his ERA was 2.77.

    As for question 2, nobody likes the Red Sox.

    And I hope you’re joking about Ben McDonald. The only things he should be commenting on are what it’s like to be a first round bust and being tall.

    Somebody, anybody, please tell me that MASN isn’t thinking of using Ben McDonald, of all people, as a regular commentator.
