Jake Arrieta Coming to Baltimore on Thursday?

Saw this on Twitter this morning from BMOREBrian:

According to Jake Arrieta's Facebook, he's starting tomorrow night vs the Yankees. #Orioles

For the rest of the season, this is great news. Giving a bunch of starts to the trio of Brian Matusz, Chris Tillman and Jake Arrieta for the rest of 2010 is the best recipe for the Orioles' long term prospects, especially since 2010 is a lost season.

 But against (arguably) the best team in baseball? Wouldn't Saturday against the Mets lineup have made for a better debut for a rookie? Or did Arrieta ask for this?

Happy to see Jake in Baltimore...there's nothing left for him to prove in the International League...but he's going to get lit up on Thursday. Bank on it.
