Owners meeting next week in Florida.

Do you expect any Orioles news to be discussed?

Perhaps the Nationals will press for a resolution of the MASN dispute.

I wouldn't expect much FA news (though Boras and all the other big agencies will be there), but the groundwork for trades could be laid, and if the Orioles have interest in guys like Kendrick or Butler, we might hear about it.

Roch, Britt and Co. will be sniffing around trying to make news. DD will throw out a bone or two shrouded in mystery which have nothing to do with actual happenings behind the scenes. So yes and no…..

In each of the last two offseasons, it felt like DD had much higher expectations going into winter meetings (post Thanksgiving) than he was able to pull off.
I'd be pretty shocked if there's big news about the O's in these meetings, but I wouldn't be shocked if the real substantive rumors, and maybe a move or two, start percolating next week.

We won't hear any Orioles news of note. If Duquette is asked to comment it will be along the lines of "doing due diligence and laying the groundwork for future discussions..."

And then Buck will be reached for comment to add. "I LIKE our guys. No disrespect to other players around the league, but we like our guys in the system and will give them the chance to show us what they've got."
And just for kicks, we'll get the occasional JTrea post, "Orioles rumored to be trading for Albert Pujols."
