I understand there's an expiration on the slot money. But, the O's are definitely going to sign someone with the money, right? Even if it's not a premium level guy, I'd really like for them to at least use it, even on random international players if necessary.
I have no idea who anyone's contact is, but I'd be very leery of any reports of inside information on this situation. From what I've heard the silence and lack of people in on this is out of character with the Orioles.
Again, I'm not disparaging any reports, just that we should take EVERYTHING with a grain of salt until the dust settles.
The Angelos' are a secretive bunch...and national reporters can barely be bothered with the Orioles. Makes for a very quiet process. I hope they have made progress. We need some news to discuss. The Mesa brothers and Manny's antics are very old.
