Orioles: Walker hammered again
Jamie Walker came on in the eighth inning and gave up a pair of home runs, and it's got to be getting harder and harder for Andy MacPhail to justify keeping him on the roster, especially while Wilfrido Perez continues to pitch well at Bowie (1.61 ERA in 19 appearances).
He didn't lose the game. The Orioles were down 5-1 when he came in and really weren't getting much done offensively, but if they want to be competitive on a daily basis, they'll need a left-handed specialist who can get left-handed hitters out. Right now, Walker does not appear to be that guy and doesn't look like he's going to suddenly figure things out.
I'm curious to see if the front office considers this an urgent matter.
