If the O's end up with Rodney and one of Arroyo/Burnett over the next three weeks, then I'll be fine with this offseason. Not completely satisfied, but I'll be moderately happy with it.

It works for me. I don't think DD would quit then tho. He's always looking thinking looking.

Always looking for BP Depth. If he has a good year it could make a BIG difference. If not, then he should still be ok for us. And two years is not that long. I want a really good bullpen.

Given our starting pitching is mediocre, we NEED a really good bullpen to compete for the division.

Should be a interesting negotiations. Rodney wants 10m/yr. The O's will not pay him more than the 6M that Balfour got. Rodney made 2.5M last year. Rodney wants a 2 year contract. That is what Balfour, Mujica and Benoit got. DD can't offer more than one year guaranteed because he knows he will not get two years passed the team doctors.

Apparently no one else wants Rodney. The O's need an experienced closer badly but the O's are stubborn and cheap enough to go with in-house relievers. Negotiation should be tons of fun.
