I think your Cubs bias might be showing a bit Eli. Pie and Hill are going to get their shots, and I hope they do as well as you predict. I'd be really surprised, however, if Pie's numbers are anywhere near Adam Jones' by the end of the season.

And Hill is such a wildcard, just about anything could happen. He could bubble up to become the Orioles' #1 or 2 starter, or he could throw eight balls in spring training, sit down on the rubber and have a good cry. You've thrown a dart into the middle of that spectrum, so I have to conceed that your predictions are possible, but I still think they're optimistic.

This team is gonna need a LOT of help to escape the AL East basement.

Wow! What do you think is gonna be the split between him and Zaun?

Wieters will start in Triple-A barring a serious injury of Zaun. They will likely keep him in Triple-A until his "super-two" expires, giving the Orioles an extra year to keep him (assuming he is playing well in Triple-A). If that happens, I believe Wieters could play 110-120 games, with Zaun playing the rest.
