Oh Man, Ohman is Good

Nearly 2 months through the 2010 season and lefty Will Ohman has yet to surrender a run. The 32 year old reliever was sitting on the scrap heap of free agents most of the offseason until the Baltimore Orioles swooped in and rescued him from unemployment by signing him to a minor league deal in mid-February. A league leading 24 appearances and nary a run...sure seems like a solid investment. Mix in 15 k in 14.2 ip with 7 holds and you're looking at a surefire trade deadline target, because Lord knows the O's are already out of it. Left-handed batters are only hitting .188 against him with a piddling .508 OPS. Bet the Phillies, Yankees, Red Sox, or many other contenders wished they'd have inked him instead.

Its great to see a glimer of hope from the draft in Baltimore. The Orioles have been really bad for so long can they ever hope to turn it around?

I hope they can turn it around. They have a beautiful stadium, and long tradition of winning, and a great city that will back them if they are competitive again.
