Brittany Ghiroli covers the Orioles for MLB.com
Brittany joined Ed & Steve to talk about the Orioles moves this off-season.
Steve asked Brittany about Dan Duquette’s talk about the Orioles payroll could go to $100 million dollars. Brittany said it’s very surprising considering that the O’s have done nothing so far this off-season. Brittany believes the O’s will go out and make 1 more signing for their rotation.
Steve also asked who do you think the Orioles will actually spend money on. Brittany said she thinks it will be Bronson Arroyo, they like his veteran leadership and how he’s “been there, done that.” Brittany also mentioned a couple of other pitchers who the Orioles may go after.
Ed asked why are the Orioles physicals different than other teams. Brittany said a lot of it has to do with the O’s being burned in the past and how they don’t mess around now when trying to agree on big money contracts.
