Baltimore Orioles (Miguel Gonzalez) -120
Something is definitively wrong with the Baltimore bullpen right now, and we aren’t so sure how to put our finger on it. The team was beaten once again in a game that it should have won, this time allowing the game-winning runs in the 10th inning on Monday night to the Yankees. Now, the pen is sure to be getting in plenty of work once again in this game, knowing that RHP Miguel Gonzalez is making his first start since going on the disabled list back on May 3rd. Gonzalez does have decent splits this year, but any time that we’re talking about a pitcher that had a blister on his thumb, we are concerned. We aren’t all that wild over RHP Phil Hughes either, but at least we know what we’re getting with Hughes. He has a 5.88 ERA this season, an ERA that has only risen over the course of his last three starts when he has posted an 8.16 ERA. However, the righty knows that he has the ability to come up with some good outings, and if he can just get off to a decent start, he did have four straight very good outings before getting rocked in his last two efforts. If Hughes can turn this into a bullpen game, we like our chances by backing the Bronx Bombers, even on the road against the struggling Orioles.
