The Orioles need Jeremy Guthrie to pick up tonight where Brad Bergesen left off on Sunday and go deep into the series opener against Mike Pelfrey the New York Mets, but it's anybody's guess whether that will happen.

We'll just have to wait and see which Jeremy Guthrie shows up. He has been struggling with his command and consistency, even as he appears to be throwing harder than he was in late April and early May.

This has been a difficult year for Guts, and I believe that has something to do with being forced into the No. 1 starter role by default. He is a nice pitcher when his head is on straight, but he hasn't established himself as an ace and he hasn't really gotten the opportunity to grow into that level of responsibility. That has to play with your head a bit, and it seems to be doing just that.

Radio, radio: Join me tonight at six on WBAL (1090 AM). We'll preview the series between the Orioles and Mets and also talk about today's activity at Ravens camp. Jamison Hensley will join me to discuss the possibility of the Ravens acquiring disgruntled receiver Brandon Marshall from the Denver Broncos.
