San Francisco Giants v Toronto Blue Jays

Dickey Face!

Well now here’s some nonsense.

With key starters Wei-Yin Chen and Miguel Gonzalez hurting, the Baltimore Orioles, according to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports, seem to have taken the opportunity to notice out that they can’t keep winning games on smoke, mirrors, a decent lineup and a ridiculous bullpen forever– right? RIGHT????– and could probably use finding some kind of top-of-the-rotation help.

This seems a simple enough observation, but getting there is going to be another matter for the O’s, especially since Heyman informs us that GM Jim Duquette has apparently been “telling teams that top Orioles pitching prospects Kevin Gausman and Dylan Bundy are absolutely and understandably untouchable.”

Uh… yeah… pretty sure the O’s conversation about any team’s ace-calibre pitcher that doesn’t start with either Gausman or Bundy is going to go over like a Jon Heyman-shaped lead balloon, but why the hell should that stop anyone from indulging ridiculously in speculation, eh?
