Hey Dean any word on when Britton will be coming up? After Tillman, Matusz, Arrieta, and Bergensen were roughed up, does that put Britton on a quicker path to make his major league debut? He could use another lefty in the rotation anyway, no? He really can't do any worse than the others.

If Tejada, Wiggington, Scott, etc. are traded, who would be the likely position players to come up? I think Bell would be an obvious answer, but what about Mahoney? Any word on this 6'7 giant that is just crushing the ball?

About the bloggers
A Baltimore native, Dan Connolly has been covering sports for 14 years, and baseball and the Orioles for 10 seasons, including the past six with The Sun. His first year covering baseball on a daily basis was Cal Ripken Jr.'s final season as a player. It's believed that is just a coincidence.

Steve Gould is an assistant sports editor for The Sun, overseeing Orioles coverage. The Columbia native joined The Sun as a sports copy editor in 2006 after graduating from the University of Maryland.

Peter Schmuck has been covering baseball for a lot longer than Steve Gould has been on this earth. He is now a general sports columnist, but has been a beat writer covering three major league teams (the Dodgers, Angels and Orioles) and also spent a decade as the Sun's national baseball writer. If you want more of his insight on the Orioles and other sports issues, check out his personal blog -- The Schmuck Stops Here.
