The Orioles are going to sign Randy Wolf

Jon Heyman reports that the Orioles are going to sign Randy Wolf.

No, he’s not likely to help — he has a 5.69 ERA and 96/45 K/BB ratio over 142 1/3 innings this year while leading the league in hits allowed — but an arm’s an arm, right? Plus, he’s virtually free.

I woulda thought that the O’s would take another go-around with Erik Bedard now that he’s available, but I guess he’s too much of the devil they know at this point.

    The “an arm’s an arm” strategy has pretty much gotten us to the point we are at right now, so we may keep on using it.

    And on the plus side they can resurrect the Wolf Pack. Baltimore isn’t too far from Philly is it?

      It feels like a billion years ago when he was a Phillie.

    This Yankee fan can’t wait to face this years version of Wolf.

      Where do you hit in the lineup?

    Figured Randy would land on his feet after the Crew let him go. Randy can still be pretty damn good, the only problem being when Randy is bad he takes your team completley out of the game.

      sounds like our starters this year.. check out that run differential baby.. we either win by 1 or lose by 7

        Yeah that’ll do it.

    Really pulling for him. Everyone I’ve talked with connected to the Crew who knows him just raves about his character, personality, and leadership. Hope he does well, would love to see the O’s in the post season. A lot of exciting young ballplayers, a great manager, and outstanding fans.

    At this point depth is depth but he’s a high upside player just having a rough stint don’t know where he fits with hammel coming back and the addition of Saunders but solid depth move and if he gets back to form great pick up for the postseason run and maybe next yr
