If there is one thing that has plagued the Orioles in 2011, it has been the pitching.
Baltimore ranks dead last in the majors in team ERA at 4.83. The next closest team is the Kansas City Royals at 4.52. It's clear that if the Orioles want any chance of competing at any point in the future, they are going to have to make some drastic changes to the staff.
Realistically, I wouldn't expect the Orioles to do much more than to add one veteran starter and a veteran reliever to help guide the young staff.
The Orioles have the fewest quality starts at 55, which shows that they clearly need someone that can pitch deep into the games because the bullpen is overused.
As the Orioles attempt to pitch their way to a strong finish and avoid 100 losses, here is a look at what the Baltimore Orioles pitching staff could look like when they break camp in 2012.
