Ken Rosenthal thinks it's happening... Dave Cameron thinks it won't happen.

Roch is on the side, it's not happening:

If Hardy isn't the starting shortstop on opening day, you'll have to wave smelling salts in front of my nose. Well, one of you. Let's not overdo it.

Alright well time for me to find a site to wager on Hardy to be traded. It's always the Mush's that never see it coming.

O's have at least made contact about Ike Davis per mlbtr. He could be part of a DH platoon with Valencia.

The Astros, Orioles, Rays, Brewers and Rockies all have checked in on Mets first baseman Ike Davis, despite his awful 2013 campaign, according to Heyman. In the case of Milwaukee, however, they may prefer re-signing Corey Hart instead.

Wow ...he's a .210-.215 ish hitter over 800 abs over the past 2 season. I Say NNNNOOOO Thanks!!!!

Low .300 OBP ...again no ...if the Os really are interested we are in for another offseason of major disappointment.

Like you said, Davis would be a good left-handed part of a DH platoon. The problem is that you don't want to give up much for a guy with no defensive value who also needs to be platooned as strictly as possible. If other teams are valuing Ike Davis as a full time player and a 1B option, I would imagine they would be willing to give up more in return that the Orioles. If for some reason a market doesn't develop for Davis and the Orioles are able to get him for a price that is consistent with acquiring a platoon DH coming off of a down season, then I am all for it. Ike has a career .356 OBP vs. RHP. Even in a down year like 2013, he still ended up with a .326 OBP overall which would have been third on the Orioles (among players with at least as many at bats). If the power jumps back up towards his career norms (and I'd sort of expect to given his age and everything else) he would definitely be an upgrade at DH.

Patton, Steve Johnson, Zach Britton one of those, starting with Patton to get it done.

First I have heard that. I read somewhere that Kazmir was not even on the O's wish list.

It was Roch earlier this week:

As for Kazmir, who turns 30 in January, he shocked the world by winning 10 games and posting a 4.04 ERA in 29 starts for the Indians this season. He was a finalist for the American League's Comeback Player of the Year Award that went to Yankees closer Mariano Rivera.

From what I've heard, the Orioles aren't likely to pursue him. There doesn't seem to be a whole lot of interest.

Kazmir has pitched 200 innings once in his career, back in 2007 with the Devil Rays (their nickname changed the following season.) He averaged fewer than six innings per start this year. Not the workhorse that the Orioles need for their rotation.

MLBTradeRumors predicted that Kazmir will sign a two-year, $16 million contract. It won't be with the Orioles.

I'll believe Roch over a non-Orioles writer.

I think its pretty safe bet that Hardy will be the starting shortstop on this team next year.

The baseball reporters are just trolling stuff out there, since there isn't much real news happening.
