Roch around the clock


The Kickoff

May 03, 2006|By ROCH KUBATKO

Let's take a look at that bullpen. Sendy Rleal, Kurt Birkins, Julio Manon. That's exactly how I imagined it last winter. And we must not forget that Cory Morris, Chris Britton and Eddy Rodriguez passed through.

I know many of you were willing to hold open the door for Jim Brower on his way out. I can't say that I blame you, given his results. But do you really feel better about this unit with Birkins and Manon in the fold? If so, that speaks volumes about this bullpen. Anyone can be anointed a savior.

Maybe the Orioles catch lightening in a bottle. Let's hope somebody catches something when they're in the game.
