Maybe Leo Mazzone forgot all his notes in Atlanta. Because the Orioles pitchers are horrendous. No team in baseball has allowed more runs than the O's. In fact, they have allowed 20 more runs than the D-Rays, who are 2nd on that list. Nothing quite as bad as leading the bigs in runs allowed.
The other day I saw the boxscore where O's pitchers walked 12 Royals--and actually still won the game. They threw 202 pitches and only 103 were for strikes. What's going on there?
Mazzone's arrival has not set off a boost in the production of their starting pitchers. Rodrigo Lopez is 1-6, 7.86. Cabrera and Chen have been brutal. Benson and Bedard have been decent. But where is the Mazzone Magic? Who has he had made better?
