The Baltimore Orioles could be nearing a big firesale

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.

    I agree the Orioles need to dump alot of players off this team and start from scratch again. The pitching has shown some promise, that is the starting pitching. (Bedard, Guthrie, and I still Like Cabrera etc…)Lets get some young prospects and see if we could turn this around in the future.

    I agree with you. I think you have to add Burres to the young pitchers that are keepers. The Orioles will need to get young position players because the older guys just aren’t producing right now.
