Predict Chris Tillman's debut pitching line


OK, Orioles fans, the future has arrived at Camden Yards.

Once again in 2009.

There was Brad Bergesen, then Nolan Reimold and Matt Wieters.

Now Chris Tillman, the organization’s top pitching prospect, makes his debut Wednesday night against the Kansas City Royals.

We’ll make this entry short and sweet. What will Tillman’s line be?

Drink chips for the one who is closest to Tillman’s line. Free tab and a spot in the “barstools for legends” section if you nail it right on.

Here’s my guess: Tillman goes 6 2/3 IP, allowing 4 hits, three runs, all earned, 3 walks and 5 strikeouts.

He gets the hard-luck loss because Zack Greinke allows just one run in seven innings.

Still, that would be a tremendous debut. What’s your call?

Daily Think Special: Predict Chris Tillman’s debut line.

After facing Hill and Burken, the Royals finally face a major league ready pitcher who could be a future ace. Hopefully, the O's will be able to play up to their potential and get him a win in his debut. Tillman has been on a roll and should bounce back from his last outing. I am predicting he pitches a shut out in his major league debut and shows us why he belongs. We have been waiting for him to come up all season, and just like Bergensen, should find early success in his career at just 21 years old. Good luck.

He gets the win as the Orioles have 3 to Lead when leaves and the Orioles win 5 to 3.

Trying to be optimistic. Lets not be too hard on him if he doesn't blow them away in his debut. Give him a chance to get his feet wet.

But no decision because he is not allowed to pitch in the 8th and the relievers give it up and we lose 3-1.

Final score:

Balt 8
KC 3 (bullpen gives up last 2)

Chris Tillman pitches a perfect game, striking out all 27 batters on a minimum of 81 pitches. Mora and Huff go 0 for 14 with 10 strikeouts but the O's win 16-0 thanks to the four grand slams home runs hit by Matt Wieters. Afterwards fans say Trembley should be fired for letting Mora and Huff bat 14 times.

WIN

O's 6, Royals 4... Pen gives a scare to Tillman, but he still wins in his MLB Debut, the O's pitchers are 3 for 3 in that category thus far in 09', let's make it 4 for 4.

I'll have one of whatever Michael Ransom is drinking. The only thing he left out was the pitch count, which should equal 81.

Orioles win 3-2 on the strength of HRs by Jones and Markakis. Tillman gets the win, Sherrill the save.

He won't take the hard luck loss because after Greinke limits the O's through 7 innings, the Royals' bullpen will give up 5 runs and won't bother using Soria.

Tillman get's the no decision as the bullpen blows another one and the Orioles are on their way to getting swept by KC.
Second Prediction: If O's do get swept by KC, Trembley gets canned immediately after.

O's lose 6-2 as the ineptitude with men on base continues (if they get runners on vs. Greinke).

No-no Baby!

I have been analyzing this for a while now and I have been carefully looking over the other predictions posted here.

All I can say is that I seriously think that the Nostradamus (listed previously to this one) prediction is right on the money.

Game will be rained out ;-)

He'll get very nervous for nothing and then start in the double header tomorrow. In that game

I predict 12 innings 157 pitches. Trembly leaves him in the whole game because he is TO'd about people complaining about pulling Berken.

He losses because Mora tries to streach a double and get thrown out. Izaturis tries to bunt with no one on and no one out because he is TO'd too and B-Rob just stands up there leaning on the bat and strikes out 4 times.

Orioles score 1 against Greinke, and 1 against KC's bullphen. Cla takes the 8th for the Orioles and Sherril closes it out. Matt Weiters and Nolan Reimold hit a home run. O's win 2-0.

Tillman's line will be as follows......
