Segue. Speaking of bullpens, the Orioles currently have the best bullpen ERA in the majors at just 1.88. Wait, what? Let me just re-check that...The BALTIMORE ORIOLES have the best bullpen ERA in the majors—at 1.88.
Luis Ayala, Jim Johnson and Matt Lindstrom have combined for 29.1 scoreless innings out of the bullpen. Pedro Strop and Darren O'Day have let up runs, but not many. They have each looked pretty solid. Troy Patton hasn't been as great, but he's been valuable. Kevin Gregg has been the one weakness, but Buck understands that and just hasn't used him that often.
On the other side of the coin, the Red Sox have the worst bullpen in the majors, with a staggering 6.34 ERA. Alfredo Aceves took over as closer when Andrew Bailey got hurt and he has been awful. He has saved five of seven, but has more earned runs than innings pitched and a WHIP of 2.00. Mark Melancon and Vicente Padilla left other organizations to come to Boston, but the Red Sox may want to send them back.
