8. A complete stable of pitchers

Who said starting pitching wins games? Through Monday, the Orioles sit at a comfortable 42-35, tied for second in the always-competitive AL East and just on the cusp of a wild card spot. And they've done all this with the second-worst pitching in the MLB, posting a team ERA of 4.55 (Houston is last with a team ERA of 4.64). Oh yeah, and the O's pitchers have allowed a whopping 108 home runs through 77 games, 12 more than any other MLB team. So won't it be nice when two crucial pieces of the O's pitching stable return in top prospect Dylan Bundy (above) and left-hander, Wei-Yin Chen? It has been mentioned that Chen could return as early as the beginning of July, while a timetable has yet to be set for Bundy's return.
