    There are still a couple issues to be resolved, according to sources, though a deal looks extremely likely.

    The Orioles also had been talking to Kendrys Morales, another free agent hitter. Morales had other opportunities, though, including the Mariners and possibly the Pirates.

    Reports suggested Morales was a strong possibility throughout the day Friday, but Orioles decisionmakers were "split" on Cruz vs. Morales, Roch Kubatko of MASN @masnroch reported Friday night. One possible difference is that Cruz may not have had many other alternatives.
    Looks like they're pretty close to an agreement. I've gotta say, if it's Cruz I hope it's cheap and 1-2 years.

    I hope it's a one year deal with a team option or something like that. I wanted Morales. Not real happy about it but I'll hope for the best.

    I might actually puke if this comes to pass.

    At the very least, I'll lose most of my respect for DD.

    I too wanted Morales as he gave us some protection if Davis went down. But I'll trust DD on this one. I suspect it's a two year deal with an option for a third. I do like that a quality organization like Texas has nothing but great things to say about him. Sounds like a quality clubhouse guy as well.

    Lookout 364!

    Could be worse you could be the Yankees where all the PEDs seem to circle around or flock to

    If Roch heard Morales was a "definite no" last night, I wonder why he didn't report it. Seems like that's the thing reporters do, no?

    I have a feeling the Orioles are more interested in Cruz because of the price tag. They can probably get Cruz to take 1-2 years whereas Morales was much less likely to do so outside of a pillow deal, and no way he signs a 1 year deal for less than $10m.

    It is interesting that the cavalry of rosenthal, morosi, et al have not chimed in.
