With the Orioles in last place they have a little more than a month to straighten themselves out or they might conduct a firesale for the ages. They have a lot of trading chips that would appeal big-time for contending teams. Corey Patterson, Jay Payton, Kevin Millar, John Gibbons, Steve Trachsel, Danys Baez, Chad Bradford, Jamie Walker and Scott Williamson could all be had for a decent prospect each. But the cutting could go much deeper than that and involve players like Miguel Tejada, Melvin Mora, Aubrey Huff and Ramon Hernandez. Owner Peter Angelos has spent a lot of money on the payroll this season and he has to be disgusted by the team’s performance so far. After all, they are behind the Tampa Bay Devil Rays in the American League East! A major firesale is on the horizon unless the Orioles get hot soon.
