Considering shortstop options

The Orioles need to make a change at shortstop for 2011. What are some of their options?


Brewers 1st round pick Dylan Covey does not sign

This was reported earlier today (well, today in Korea, I guess it would last night for those in North America) and I began following and collecting as much information as possible.  Why?  Because...


Bergesen sent to Triple-A

Roch, after receiving a text from Bergesen, has said that he's been sent down to Triple-A. No word on who takes 3E's place in the rotation, but I'm hoping they sent Arrieta up for his first taste...


Orioles acquire Julio Lugo?

This is making its round through the intertubes and I'm just confused. Julio Lugo hasn't been a solid player in...his career.  Sure, there are concerns with Brian Roberts' back, Robert Andio as a...


Corner infield situation

In a deal that makes little sense, the Giants have signed Aubrey Huff to fill in their corner infield "void".  That means they have Juan Uribe, Pablo Sandoval, Mark DeRosa, Huff, and Travis...

Baseball America ranks the Os top 10 prospects, pins Erbe down as a closer by 2013. Solid list all...

Baseball America ranks the Os top 10 prospects, pins Erbe down as a closer by 2013. Solid list all things considered. I prefer John Sickels and his predictions, but that's me.

Is Today the Day for Luuuuuuuuuuke?

Is now the time to trade Luke Scott? With Nolan Reimold a solid option for the DH position and Felix Pie a competent replacement in left, although I wonder who would serve as a forth outfielder,...


Continued Forays in Japan

Last season I was ecstatic to hear that the Orioles were interested in Japanese pitchers Koji Uehara, Kenshin Kawakami, Ryoji Aikawa, and Ryohei Tanaka.  The Os had been lacking in global appeal...


Trading for a True Ace?

For over three years people on this blog have complained that the Orioles have lacked a true ace for years.  At some point two seasons ago, many believed that Jeremy Guthrie might be the closest...


Dan Uggla at 3B/DH

Rumors abound that our beloved Orioles are one of two teams, the Giants being the other, expressly interested in trading for slugging second baseman Dan Uggla.  In the immortal words of Kent...


Closing Time

Jim Johnson has struggled in the closers role, but then again, he hasn't been as solid this season as last and this could all be simply a down year. Flat Breezy is with the Dodgers now and...


Sherrill or Baez to Colorado?

These rumors are getting out of control. Jhoulys Chacin, #1 prospect in the Rockies system, has been pulled from his start at Double-A, and it is now speculated that he is part of a trade.  Tim...


California wants Sherrill

Bill Shaikin of the LA Times is reporting that the Angels are also interested in George Sherrill.  mlbtraderumors's Ben Nicholson-Smith points out that Andy MacPhail is looking for two top...


Wigginton as tradebait?

Jon Paul Morosi of FOX Sports is talking about ways in which the Cinncinati Reds could improve their club with a right-handed hitter and has mentioned Ty Wigginton as a target since they lost out...


Trade Candidates

The youth of tomorrow are here! ...Today! As it stands, the Orioles have some solid veteran pieces to be traded sooner-than-later.  The rotation is eight guys deep and could use some thinning out...


Reading Between the Lines: Freel Wants Out

MASN's Steve Melewski is reporting that Ryan Freel isn't happy with his situation. Freel went on the DL April 21st after getting beaned on a throw to second and was hospitalized with a mild...


Penn to the Marlins

According to Roch and mlbtraderumors.com, the Os are on the verge of trading Hayden Penn to the Marlins for infielder Robert Andino. This isn't the kind of trade most of us were hoping for.  There...


Blocked Prospect - Kyle Blanks

Kyle Blanks seems to be the odd man out as Adrian Gonzalez isn't going anywhere, so what should the Padres do? There's already been some rumblings that the Padres are looking to trade Blanks for...


Out of Option Trade Chips

I'm aware that I and others have posted and talked about this before, but I felt that since Spring Training is fully underway we'd look at it again. At this point the Os have an overwhelming...


Roberts to the Chicago...White Sox?!

Roch is reporting that the Os might be working on a trade with the White Sox for Gavin Floyd and, possibly, another prospect.  This is the kind of deal I've been waiting to hear about.  Something...


A.J. Burnett signs with the Janks

So, mlbtraderumors has posted that the Yankees have signed A.J. Burnett to a "five-year, $82.5MM" contract.  This was to be expected, really.  The Yankees needed to continue to build, by throwing...


The state of the shortstop

Tom Verducci of SI.com posted a pretty fantastic commentary on the current state of shortstops in baseball. What it really boils down to is that the day of the heavy hitting shortstop is over. ...


Outside the box thinking: shortstop

So, Tim Dierkes from mlbtraderumors.com has made his predictions for free agent destinations this offseason.  It's a fine list.  As I skimmed it, looking for whom he thought the Orioles would...


Thanks, Loe-dawg

So, Andy MacPhail expexts Adam Loewen to sign with the Toronto Blue Jays... "I think Toronto is going to sign him," said MacPhail. "I don't know if it's a done deal, but I've been led to believe...


Off-season trade targets

Well, it's that time again.  Time for us to pontificate on whom the Front Office will go after, creating wildly unrealistic trade scenarios, and ballyhoo free agent signings the likes of Teixeira...


Mark Teixeira Traded To Angels

He's been traded for Casey Kotchman and another player, possibly Stephen Marek as mentioned by Lyle Spencer of mlb.com. So, what does this mean for Tex this off season?  Does he resign with the...


Horseface drinks for the Brew Crew now

So, it seems the Brewers are about to sign Jay Gibbons to a minor league deal.  He'll begin in Double- or Triple-A and try to work his way up.  The Sun has the story. He always seemed like such a...


Some trade ideas

Since the All-Star break began I've been mulling over possible trade ideas and these are they...them. With Takashi Saito about to hit the DL with an elbow ligament sprain, the Dodgers are going to...


Cintron to the DL, 'Shoes' called up

Well, that idea didn't last long. Roch is reporting that Cintron has been placed on the DL and Freddie 'Shoes' Bynum's contract has been purchased. This is kind of cruel.  Bynum was just...


Should we reaquire Bedard? ...HA!

Jayson Stark had this to say: Aceless in Seattle? Bill Bavasi got booted in Seattle as much for what he wouldn't do (fire his manager, trade his Opening Day starter) as for anything he did do....
