Losing with Liz

The Orioles announced their rotation for the Detroit series that follows the break: Garrett Olson, Jeremy Guthrie, Daniel Cabrera and Brian Burres.

We won't be seeing Radhames Liz again for a little while. Try not to miss him too much.

Liz has allowed 12 earned runs in his last two starts covering six innings. His ERA jumped from 5.94 to 7.57 tonight. Ten of the 16 batters he faced reached base. He had nothing.

So what exactly are the Orioles supposed to do with him? Manager Dave Trembley vowed to keep running him out there, but that was before the wheels fell off. You have to be careful not to destroy his confidence.

The eight earned runs that he allowed tied for the second-most by an Orioles pitcher this season (our friend Steve Trachsel gave up nine against Tampa Bay).
