To quote Roy "Tin Cup" McAvoy, "perfection is unattainable," so somebody in the bullpen had to blink over the weekend. Turned out to be Tommy Hunter (pictured), who gave up three runs in Saturday night's victory over the Rangers. To quote just about anybody who knows anything about baseball, if you're going to give up three runs out of the bullpen, be sure and do it in a game in which your team jumped out to a 7-0 lead. The Orioles required only six innings of relief during the three games in Texas and the 4.50 ERA is deceptive.
