  1. With $26 million left on the remaining two years of his contract, Mark Trumbo surely would be difficult to move, and the Orioles might have to eat some of the money. But should they try to trade him for a starting pitcher? https://www.pressboxonline.com/2017/10/26/will-mark-trumbo-be-back-with-the-orioles-in-2018
  2. Even at 42, R.A. Dickey was an innings-eater in 2017, something the Orioles desperately need. More from Rich Dubroff: https://www.pressboxonline.com/2017/10/25/could-the-orioles-sign-rhp-ra-dickey

  8. Dan Connolly says Dan Duquette is going to find starting pitching any way he can, but the most logical route is to trade for it -- and trades can easily blow up on you, too. https://www.pressboxonline.com/2017/10/16/to-improve-starting-pitching-orioles-must-be-willing-to-make-a-trade

  12. After watching the Orioles' young players get a chance during September, Jim Henneman says he learned two things: 1) The Orioles seem to have finally developed some position players with promise; and 2) collectively, they aren't ready for delivery to the big leagues as a package. https://www.pressboxonline.com/2017/10/04/orioles-young-players-show-promise-but-not-all-are-ready-for-big-leagues-just-yet
  13. Dan Duquette on what's next for the Baltimore Orioles: "We've got to rebuild our starting rotation. I still think that [Kevin] Gausman can be an elite pitcher in the league. We'll have to find some starters beyond that." More: https://www.pressboxonline.com/2017/10/02/for-2017-orioles-problems-began-with-pitching
  14. In 2013, the Orioles led the major leagues in defense, committing a record-low 54 errors (one every three games). This season, the Orioles have made 94 errors in 157 games and are in the middle of the pack in defense. Buck Showalter: "I think we've taken a step back defensively, really the last year or two in some places. I think we need to get that back in order, especially with a pitching staff that doesn't strike out that many people." More: https://www.pressboxonline.com/2017/09/26/buck-showalter-says-orioles-need-to-tighten-up-defense
  15. Former Orioles pitcher Ross Grimsley: ""If you're serious about contending and getting deep into the playoffs, you're going to have to get starting pitching. And right now, in the organization, I don't see anybody that's ready to step up next year." https://www.pressboxonline.com/2017/09/25/ross-grimsley-orioles-are-two-starting-pitchers-away-from-contending-in-al-east
