Penn to start Tuesday

From ESPN:

RHP Hayden Penn will be brought up from the minors to start Tuesday for Baltimore at Seattle. RHP Julio Manon was optioned to Triple-A Ottawa.

The future starts now, kids.

I guess it’s Chen to the pen and they’re hoping that Lopez will slap it back together somehow soon. Adios Julio Manon, maybe we’ll see you again later this season. But after last night…alittle time in AAA might be good for ALL of us.
At this point, I hope Cabrera gets back soon and we can have 4 out 5 starters who give us a chance to win every time they pitch. Chen and Lopez seem to be the extra guy for the other team whenever they pitch.

by the way, today’s loss ties us with Tampa Bay in the AL East cellar.
I’m not complaining though. Given the pitching, the injuries, the runners left on base, the walks, and the bullpen….20-24 is mighty good considering.

Maybe Brian Roberts will play in Seattle….I hope.

I neglected to mention that I finished reading “Black and Blue.”
It’s a great book. It spends equal time on both the Orioles and the Dodgers.
One of the best researched baseball books you’ll read.
