    We're actually going to give up 2 players for him??

    Why?

    I'm usually one to preach against over-reacting, but this is a really puzzling move. What is the point?

    I was actually just thinking the same thing! Is it too late to get him back? He may have been slower than a three-toed sloth, but at least the deals he made had some logical backing. UGH!!!

    You guys aren't seeing DD's master plan. Eveland is super BFFs with Fielder and now we're going to get Prince for, like, 4/80. Wait for it.

    He still has Peter's ear .... We could have had Clark in the rule 5 ....But we added another ex-Cub Flaherty. (Another guy not worth the $50,000 it will cost when they cut him in April.)

    It looks like we will give up Henry and Miclat in the TT deal. I am afraid to see what we give up for Eveland as the non-PTBNL. The PTBNL could be based on performance to some degree as well. My best guess is that we are not going to be happy with the pitcher that we gave up for him. All of these low key moves has me thinking that we are saving some money for a big strike.

    Britt i think has lost her mind or DD and her are a little too close because there is no way dana eveland helps us at all, he is the reincarnation of Brian Buress, lance cormier, garret olson ... im just at a loss for words on what actually goes through the minds of the orioles front office

    According to Connolly, the minor league pitcher is Jarrett Martin.

    Honestly, what did everyone expect? When a team is not willing to part with:
    - Core players
    - Young pitchers other than Tillman, Bergy, Berken
    - The 3 or 4 legitimate prospects in the minors

    Sure ain't going to get much in return.
