Rumors are circulating that the Orioles and Marlins are talking about possible trades. The names that are being brought up are Hanley Ramirez, Carlos Lee, Josh Johnson, Ricky Nolasco and Randy Choate.

Now it’s believed that the Orioles are looking for a possible third baseman and starting pitching help. If they were to make a move for Hanley Ramirez or Josh Johnson, you would think that Manny Machado would be included in a deal like that. I’m not ready to give up on Machado yet, although I do like what the O’s would get in return but I’m not ready to pull the trigger on that one.

I’m very curious to see what moves Dan Duquette makes.
