Rock n' Rollioles

Get it? Leo Mazzone rocks a lot and he just joined the Orioles pitching staff? My goal in life is to write those creative headlines at ESPN.com. I still can't get over their brilliant word play with Cadillac Williams.

Anyway, has an assistant coach changing teams ever been as significant as Mazzone's switch in any sport. I've read this could end the Braves' string of division titles, bring good pitching free agents to Baltimore, and improve the entire Oriole staff.

Bobby Cox is a great manager no matter what happens for the rest of his career, but it will be interesting to see how he does without Mazzone.

both Mazzone and Cox are amazing. Baltimore has a young staff. It should be interesting to see how the AL East plays out. Both the Yanks and Sox having an ageing pitching staff and maybe Baltimore can take them over in the next couple of years.
As for next year, the Braves will still win the NL East. I will say this every year until someone beats them.
