Should at least be a better arm for the team than Tyler Wilson.

 

I mean....go look at what Wilson did when he first came up....here

Yeah the O's past is littered with guys who did well in their first start and then turned into a pumpkin. I liked what I saw from him though. And he had a good September last year. Maybe there's something there. Gotta be better than Ubaldo.
I never had friends later on like the ones I had when I was twelve. Jesus, does anyone?

Don't think the expectations for him should change based on what we saw today.  If he can give you the occasional spot start, that's great. Tillman is on track to return in early May... if he can give you a couple of solid starts until then, great.

If he's exceeding expectations by the time Tillman returns, and Jimenez continues to struggle... that would be interesting.

I know what Wilson did I just like Asher's profile better if they're in similar roles. Not saying hand him a rotation spot or anything.

So does Asher remain in Birdland after today's start?

 

The Baltimore Wire's Brian Pinter gives his insights on Alec Asher. 

 

Will Asher stick around in Birdland?

Chris Waters, Dave Borkowski come to mind.

Chris Waters...

 

That's exactly who I was thinking of, but I couldn't remember his name. Probably for the best.
