Roch Around The Clock

Did the Orioles overpay for former Tigers reliever Jamie Walker?

Of course, they did. Three years for approximately $11.5 million? For Jamie Walker? They also did the right thing - not to be confused with the Jaret Wright thing.

Why don't I mind that the Orioles made such an extravagant financial commitment to a left-handed setup man? The answer is simple.

It's not my money.

You want a better bullpen? You want guys willing to play in Baltimore after nine straight losing seasons? It'll cost you.
