You don't want Fielder. He has boras as his agent which means it is 99.9% certain that he will try to explore the free agent market and only go to the highest bidder. Either that, or you will have to give him a Ryan Howard like contract of 25mil per year for 6-7 years.

I'm really bored since it is 9:51am and there is nothing to do and I decided to look up Hernandez as a starter vs Hernandez as a reliever.

As a starter he was 1-5, 5.31era, 28bb, and 27K in 42 1/3 innings. As a reliever he was 7-3, 3.16era, 14bb, and 45K in 37 innings. He is only 25 years old and is throwing 98+ out of the bullpen.

There is no way I'm trading him for a 1 year shortstop unless that shortstop is named Jose Reyes (and Hernandez would just be one of 3 or 4 players in an offer to the Mets).

Im feeling the same. He is just too good to be giving away for a decent upgrade at SS.

News out of NPBTracker. The O's WILL pursure Tsuyoshi Nishioka.

Nice to see they are at least making a play at Nishioka. Who knows if it is legit and they are bidding to win or bidding to maybe pressure Minnesota or Tampa Bay.

I would be in shock if we were the winning bid.

E: I see we are talking with Koji which is a great thing. He was excellent as a closer and we could really use him in the back end of the bullpen next season.

The Orioles have had multiple conversations with the representatitve of closer Koji Uehara, who has interest in returning to Baltimore at the right price. It would surprise me, however, if the Orioles would be willing to offer him a two-year deal. If another team is willing to extend Uehara a guaranteed two-year offer, I'd be surprised if he's back in an Orioles' uniform in 2011. Either way, Uehara appears to be at the top of the Orioles' list of their own free agents that they want to resign.

I'm pretty happy they are at least attempting to make a play for Nishioka . I could honestly see them winning the post bid (there is always room for the usual lmaO disappointment.)

Pls sum Koji. No more then 2 years 2-4 mil per though.

Rowell, 22, has played three consecutive seasons at Single-A Frederick, showing few signs that he’s near major league ready. He hit .275 with 11 homers and 61 RBIs in 117 games in 2010, and if he stays in the organization as expected, he’ll likely get his long-awaited promotion to Double-A Bowie in 2011.

Britton, the organization’s top pitching prospect and its minor league Pitcher of the Year last year, went 7-3 with a 2.48 ERA in 15 starts at Bowie and then 3-4 with a 2.98 ERA in 12 starts with Triple-A Norfolk. Though it’s unlikely that the 22-year-old starts the 2011 campaign in the Orioles’ rotation, it would be surprising if he didn’t make his big league debut at some point during the season.

The other additions to the 40-man roster are first baseman Joe Mahoney and outfielder Matt Angle. Mahoney, 23, was named the organization’s minor league Player of the Year after hitting .307 and tallying 18 homers and 78 RBIs in 124 combined games at Single-A and Double-A.

Angle, 25, whose best tools are his speed and defense, hit .383 in 14 games for Bowie before moving up to Norfolk, where he batted .260 with one homer and 24 RBIs. He’ll likely return to Norfolk for another season.

Minor leaguers who have been in the organization for four or five years, depending on their age when they signed, and have yet to be put on the 40-man roster are eligible to be selected in the Rule 5 draft.

The list of Orioles minor leaguers who are eligible to be drafted Dec. 9 on the final day of baseball’s winter meetings includes infielders Ryan Adams and Brandon Waring; outfielder Tyler Henson; starting pitcher Steve Johnson (St. Paul’s); and relievers Pedro Beato, Brandon Cooney, Pat Egan and Wynn Pelzer.

With the three additions today, the Orioles’ 40-man roster stands at 35.


Glad they added those 3 obviously. Wondering why Pelzer was left off though.

I could see Waring and Pelzer taken in Rule 5 Draft.

If you are taken in the rule 5 draft don't you have to stay on the major league roster of the team that selected you? Waring nor Pelzer are close to ready for any major league action much like Steve Johnson last year when the Giants (maybe it was the Dodgers if not the Giants) selected him and he came back before the season started. I actually wouldn't care if we lost any players in the rule 5 draft none of them have any type of big league future. Waring may turn into a decent power option as a pinch hitter in the NL and Pelzer might end up being a mediocre bullpen arm but like I said neither are ready so there is no risk.

I wouldn't care if they gave Uehara 10mil over the next 2 years he was great out of the bullpen and can be our closer for the next 2 years. If Hernandez forces his way as closer Uehara is a great option in the 7th and 8th inning.

Our bullpen is actually very solid with Hernandez, Uehara, and Berken. Gonzalez is a wild card as is Jim Johnson but when they are both on they are great too. Hopefully they don't sign Hendrickson again and let VandenHurk or Patton be the long reliever.

my honest AL EAST predictions for next season

1. NYY
2. BOS - WC
3. BAL
4. TB
5. TOR

hopefully baltimore becomes the sleeper of that division because i had picked them to take 3rd this season.
