Baseball Blogs Weigh In: Jenkins, Twins, Eveland

On this date 11 years ago, Orioles lefty Jesse Orosco set the Major League record for career relief appearances when he came into the 8th inning of a game against the Yankees to face Tino Martinez and Paul O'Neill. It was his 1,051st career appearance, surpassing Kent Tekulve's record. The then-42-year-old Orosco went on to pitch another four years after setting the mark, and retired with 1,252 career appearances, 74 more than anyone else.

Im gonna take a wild guess and here and assume Medlen is going back to the BP because next Wednesday is Medlen’s scheduled start. Thanks again Braves for keeping the wrong people (Lowe and KK) and putting a guy who deserves to be playing back in the pen. This isn’t anything new. Look how long it took Prado to become a full time starter. It took an injury and him hitting like .380 when he got regular playing time for him to stick there. As much as I appreciate all that Cox has done in ATL, the last few seasons his decisions have been quite ridiculous.
