What Must Be Done

Written by: Peter Coolbaugh

To achieve respectable status in the near future, here is what Andy McPhail and Dave Trembley should do in the next few days to right the ship.

1) Make trades and get rid of the dead weight. This includes Huff.

2) Dump Rich Hill ASAP. Same goes for Baez.

3) Send Berken back to the minors. Albers may need to go down too.

4) With Tillman arriving, check out who is next in line and get them ready to arrive in the majors soon.

5) Put Koji in the bullpen if/when he ever returns to form.

6) Let Markakis bat 4th. That seems to work very well.

7) Fine players for base running and fielding mistakes

8) Trade/sign a new 1B and 3B in near future or have one brought up. I love Melvin but he has reached the end of his rope offensively.

As a fan, my enthusiasm is basically gone. We look tired, old, and sometimes just downright stupid. I demand changes that are swift and will produce results. Unless the Orioles like having 7K people a night at a place that holds 48K, they will get their act together soon.
