On the Orioles' bullpen

Hitters don't hit, so the games are always close. This causes [Sam] Perlozzo to overreact to the slightest sign of fatigue in the starter, which causes him to go to the bullpen earlier than he should. Then the process repeats with each reliever and the tired bullpen is now very hittable.

At this point, I would expect them to finish dead last because they have virtually no starting pitching and a bullpen that is pretty worn out.

Is the bullpen tired, or did they just decide to mail this one in?
