    I think the O’s starting pitching might be a little better than 5th. They could surprise ya this year.

      I’d agree. A lot depends on the two young guys taking another step. Tillman’s health and whether Ubaldo Jimenez can have a year where he is solid throughout are key, too.

      Could be, but they’ll need Gausman and Bundy to become the top-of-the-rotation guys the Orioles thought they’d be (Gausman is nearly there already). They’ll also need Tillman to be back by May rather than July.
