Everybody is viewing tonight's start by Rich Hill and tomorrow night's start by Jason Berken as a direct competition for the spot remaining in the rotation when Chris Tillman moves up for Wednesday night's game.

If that's the case, my money is on Hill. He's due for another last-gasp solid performance against the decimated Kansas City Royals lineup tonight, and optioning Berken back to Norfolk is the path of least resistance for the O's front office.

Former Orioles pitcher Bruce Chen goes for the Royals tonight, and it's always hard to root against Bruce, who is a great guy who probably had his career handicapped by an inability to fit into Leo Mazzone's pitching profile.

Radio, radio: Tune in at six for Sportsline when Stan White and Rob Burnett join me in the first half-hour to talk about the opening of Ravens training camp today. Gerry Sandusky will pop in during the second half of the show. Tomorrow night, my guest will be quarterback Joe Flacco.
