    Kris Benson Out For The Season
    The big news today courtesy of Ken Rosenthal is that Orioles starter Kris Benson is out for the season because of a rotator cuff tear. It's a bummer for Benson, as it may result in his $7.5MM option for '08 being declined.

    The injury leaves the Orioles scrambling to find a starter who can provide 180 innings of 4.90 ball in the AL East. Rodrigo Lopez might've been that guy; Hayden Penn probably isn't ready to do that yet. The team will probably bring in a veteran replacement. Rosenthal mentions Steve Trachsel as the most likely, as well as Mark Redman and Ron Villone. Villone last started in 2004.


    Like to see the Reds sign Redman for 3 milion and trade Milton to Baltimore for prospects..

    well its nice to dream..

    Milton's flyball tendencies in Baltimore might qualify him as a WMD.

    Milton is like that fruitcake that sits on the table alongside the good food at Christmas time. You can't give it away.

    i really doubt that Villone is physically capable of pitching even 100 innings in the Majors (let alone 180) at this junction of his career. though it would be hillarious to see the O's put that kind of faith in him.

    The O's already signed Trachsel as Benson's replacement. Kriv didn't move fast enough to dump Milton.

    Wow, I read it as Bronson too, even though I had already heard about Bensen.

    The Orioles would take Milton Berle before Eric Milton.
