Confidence men: The two guys who may hold the key to the Orioles chances of staying alive in the wild card race are still searching for consistency. Jake Arrieta, pictured, has started to rebound after losing six straight decisions in May and early June. Brian Matusz has turned in the other direction, losing his last four decisions after turning in his best performance of the year on June 2. If the two of them could ever get things together at the same time, the Orioles would be in great shape for the second half. Both have too much talent to be a combined 8-18, so you have to wonder whats holding them back.
