Ervin Santana could have an impact. He could. But if he agrees to terms here, the Orioles will have spent over $70 million this off-season and added over $33 million to the 2014 payroll.
Glenn is excited about the 2014 Orioles’ season. The Birds have the bats to keep up with any team in the AL East and the pitching isn’t looking too bad either.
It seemed like yesterday when fans and sports talk radio hosts (me included) were talking about the lack of off-season moves by the Baltimore Orioles.
Prior to this, I thought the off-season was a disaster, an F. They needed to upgrade the rotation, get a DH, fill holes and hopefully upgrade LF and 2B, plus try top extend Davis and/or Wieters.
Catcher Matt Wieters and the Baltimore Orioles avoided salary arbitration by agreeing to a $7.7 million, one-year contract, a raise of $2.2 million.
It is hard to determine Matt Wieters value. Because he had a down year offensively in many categories, he won’t be worth as much in the trade market.
The Gold Glove winners will be announced tomorrow night at 8pm on ESPN 2. Six Orioles have eared their chance to receive this prestigious award.
Orioles GM Dan Duquette joined Ed & Steve to talk about the plan for the Orioles off-season.
A Tuesday night, 3-2, 10-inning defeat to the Blue Jays, their sixth-straight loss, mathematically eliminated the Birds from postseason competition.
Miguel Gonzalez pitched seven innings of two-hit ball, Matt Wieters homered and drove in two runs, and the Baltimore Orioles beat the Toronto Blue Jays 3-2 on Thursday night.
It has been tough to see what has happened to the Orioles, right in the mix with plenty of opportunities, and a complete inability to capitalize.
On a night in which they committed three errors, their starting pitcher walked six in five innings and they went 0 for 6 with runners in scoring position, the Baltimore Orioles still managed to earn a monumental 3-2 victory over the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park.
