The Baltimore Orioles still have some work to do before spring training

If the season were to start next week the starting players in the field would be:

C-Matt Wieters
1B-Michael Aubrey/Ty Wigginton
2B-Brian Roberts
SS-Cesar Izturis
3B-Garrett Atkins
LF-Nolan Reimold
CF-Adam Jones
RF-Nick Markakis
DH Luke Scott

While I think the Orioles would score a lot of runs with this line-up I’m just not too comfortable with the platoon at 1B. I would consider bringing in a affordable veteran like Hank Blalock, Carlos Delgado or Russell Branyan. If I couldn’t sign one of those guys I would try to get into the trade market. If that failed I would try to go back and sign a player like Miguel Tejada or Joe Crede with the idea of shifting Garrett Atkins over to 1B. If none of those options worked I think I would just go with Aubrey and Wigginton.
