Part of the education of a big-league manager is learning when to say when. At the moment John Oates is getting a crash course from the Orioles' starting pitchers.Handling a pitching staff sometimes requires sacrificing somebody's earned run average to preserve a few arms. Unfortunately for Oates and the Orioles the practice has become almost standard procedure.Working with a bullpen that has pitched more innings (220) than any other in the American League, Oates is finding out there is no effective relief for consistently ineffective starters.
