A reason for negatism? in Orioles Talk Posted December 1, 2006 The six players we traded in 2000 in no way constituted a rebuild. We traded the likes of Will Clark, BJ Surhoff, Harold Baines, Charles Johnson, Mike Timlin and Mike Bordick. These guys were all either in the latter stages of their careers, or in the last year of their contracts, or in the case of Timlin, wasn't pitching very well. None of these guys was close in value to a Miguel Tejada now. I agree none of these guys had the value of a Tejada, but I don't see how you can say that wasn't a rebuild. We traded our starting C, 1B, SS, LF and DH and our closer. The return we got was pitiful. What I remember most is that we didn't due good due diligence and ended up with an Atlanta pitching prospect with a torn labrum and a Mets pitcher who was 5 years older than we thought.
