If DD said this, I'm guessing no one has even asked about them.

If you recall when DD was hired the one thing he said and I'm paraphrasing here, that he wished he would of been more accessible and more forthright with the media.

Now I don't follow every word he says, but I'm pretty sure he's been honoring those words. If talks about the O's pitchers are heating up, I have no doubt until proven otherwise that they are.

It's only a matter of time before something happens with the collection of pitchers the O's have. They are not as bad as people try to make them out to be.

I just wish we would make any kind of move at this point

Short cited thinking like this destroys organizations. I sincerely hope we don't "just make any kind of move at this point" or just make a move to make a move. I understand we are anxious but I believe it is unlikely that the FA market is where we make a splash this year and we should obviously be thorough and patient in any trades we make. Right moves at the right price. This organization cannot afford to simply make moves to make moves because 1) our limited payroll and 2) our lack of organizational depth.

"We are making progress. We want to sign another outfielder by the end of the week and we're hopeful that we can get something done with a couple of the people we've talked to. Right now we are more focused on trying to find a hitter for our club and most of our efforts the next few days will be towards that. We are going to look to add another bat to the lineup and there is a possibility that bat could be at first base. Or if we added another outfielder, some of the people we currently have on the roster could see time at first base but I think we have to give that a little bit more time and see what the composition of the team is before we decide what we are going to do. We do have Steve Pearce who can play first base capably, so that is a starting point and we have to let the rest of the offseason play out because I'm confident we can add some other players. We're encouraged because we've got a lot of interest in our young pitching from other teams in the industry and that just validates what we thought, that we have some good young pitchers on our staff and some that are on the horizon, breaking into the big leagues in Bundy and Gausman. There is a lot of interest in those young pitchers."

Not if we are going to improve the middle of our order. Reimhold may have all the potential in the world but he is an unproven injury prone player... Who's you backup plan

Well, if this "Reimhold" cat doesn't pan out, I'd take my chances with Nolan Reimold in left! ;)

Sorry for being "that guy" but if you're gonna bash a player, then at least spell his name right!

Why are things so slow then?

Because the O's overvalue their guys, and other teams overvalue theirs too.

I'm sure other teams are interested in guy's like Arrieta/Matusz/Britton/Johnson. As buy low type guy's. Example: The O's want Butler. They think a package of Matusz and Johnson is enough. KC is thinking Bundy. However, KC is interested in those other two, for guys in their own system that are expendable.

Bottom line, outside of Bundy and maybe Tillman, no one is going to give up a proven player for our guys. DD is now going to find that out, and already has to some degree. No farm to use in trades and no money to spend? Wonder how long DD will "tough" this gig out?
