Orioles are Flying High With Their Off-Season Moves

Is it just me or are the Orioles making some decent moves to improve their team? I mean I know they are big splashes like CC, AJ, or Teix but they are making some small partially under the radar, bargain moves. From signing Uehara to trading for Pie (not real pie,it’s actually pronounced Felix Pe-a) the Orioles are making some nice moves to improve their team, similar to the Red Sox. The Orioles also signed Gregg Zaun, to have as a backup if Wieters isn’t ready, and traded for Ryan Freel which should give them some more outfield depth. Nick Markakis is also really close to agreeing to a 6 year deal worth about 65 million and with that the Orioles are locking up one of their key young players. The Orioles signed Mark Hendrickson earlier this offseason and he should fit nicely into their rotation. The Orioles have a nice little power tandem with Huff and Markakis and a proven base stealer in Roberts, but they might need at least one more pitcher to hlp this team garner some inprovement in the tough division they’re playing in known as the AL East. They could go for a bargain like Josh Fogg or Livan Hernandez, or rekindle talks with the White Sox about Gavin Floyd for Brian Roberts. Either way, it’s good to know that the Orioles are doing something to help improve their team.
