The Kickoff

On Orioles pitcher Adam Loewen

In August and September, he was 5-3 and pitched to a 4.50 ERA. If he can do that over the course of the full season (and I think he'll need to reduce the walks to do so), he will give the O's a legit 1-2 combo with [Erik] Bedard.

I think Loewen has a legitimate shot at being a 15-game winner this year, though he may only top out at 10.

I like the idea that he's taking it seriously (unlike guys like [Sidney] Ponson), and I like the fact that he rises to the occasion.
