The Orioles stayed at the top of the American League East standings for an extended period on the ability of their starting rotation to get them into the late innings with a chance to win, so it should be no surprise that they can't compete when the starters -- as a group -- no longer are able to that. Brian Matusz has hit a wall. Jake Arrieta (pictured) just seems confused. And both Jason Hammel and Wei-Yin Chen ran aground last week. It wasn't all on the starters last week, but it was almost all bad.
