I like this deal as long as Trumbo is primarily a DH/1B and plays fewer than 30 games a year in the outfield.

He will play more than that this year. If he is healthy.

You have a good point, though I wouldn't say Hardy had a career year before he got his contract.  

I wouldn't say Hardy has been a bad contract despite his 2015 season.

Except that its severely overpaying for a DH who doesn't really get on base. Might as well let Trumbo play RF, if you're paying him $13M per year.

40 million or less for Mark Trumbo is a hell of a deal. He would have received a lot bigger contract in year's past. A three year contract is also not going to hurt the Orioles. The Orioles are not going to resign Manny and they probably also won't resign Zach Britton. They had some money they could spend. 40 million dollars in MLB is like a dollar to an ordinary person. Very cheap deal. Give me a Trumbomb baby!

Severely overpaying?

They are paying him to be worth about 1.5 WAR per season over the next three years. I don't think that is an unrealistic target for him to hit.

I don't either.  I also do not expect him to be as good as last year at the plate.
