agreed.

It's starting to look pathetic.  And I'm an eternal Orioles dreamer.

Nothing would please me more than another AL East team picking him up:



Rays sign Balfour so you'll get to keep a close eye on his progress.

2 years 12 million dollars.  You know when the Rays are outspending you, you have money spending issues.

Oakland agreeing to pay JJ wasn't sign enough for you?

The Orioles offered him $14M before the physical.

Then they got buyers remorse and backed out.  It is not like the Orioles have signed anyone else other than minor league type guys.  The rumor is the Orioles are interested in Rodney.  I guess because no one else is interested in him.  Typical bad Oriole signing.

Jonah Keri on the O's

The MASN discussion was a fantastic one, BTW.

Good read.  Keri was just on the local CBS sports radio show in Baltimore.  He's got a book coming out next year on the Expos - was a lifelong fan.

Looks like some of these asking prices for starting pitching - Arroyo, Burnett, Jimenez - are decreasing now.  Maybe Duquette knows what he's doing after all.

yeah I never liked that guy.  And Angelos never liked a pitcher making 7 million a year.

There's no way Ervin Santana's elbow passes an Orioles physical.  Don't even bother...

Some speculation here, but it's believable. The Balfour Effect on the Missed Arroyo Signing
