Well I'm not sure 7.5-8 per 2-3 years?

I'm not big on guys you can't count on to be available. I think we have that problem with JJ.

Because of his injury history I doubt he gets that much, and for more than a year. He would be a good buy low compliment to Pearce IMO. Jaso might be better, or maybe both. For Davis' 25 M you could get Zobrist, Morneau, Pearce, and Jaso.

Fowler will have a QO attached, most likely. Maybe even Zobrist gets a QO. What's not that much? Fowler's probably good for 4 or 5 years at at least 10M per year. Zobrist turns 35 next May but I bet he gets a 3/30M or better deal.

Jaso should be cheap and short term. Morneau will be short term. Span could go either way but I don't think he'll have a QO attached either. Three good targets except that Morneau's had concussion problems for years now. Buyer beware. Risky.

What's your alternative?

Alternative to what? I think Span, Jaso, and Morneau are possible targets but Morneau and Span are question marks healthwise. In order to keep payroll down and not be committed to long term contracts, I've mentioned Reddick, Lind, and Brandon Moss all as possible trade targets. Each has one year left to FA.

I thought Lind was a FA.

The best the Orioles could do at trade deadline when they were obviously trying to improve was Parra. Do you really think we have enough to trade for these guys? My question would be ...What's changed?

Zobrist can't get a QO.

No disrespect but your dreamin' ! The exodus will continue will Chen, Davis, Wieters, and perhaps O'Day.

The will be replaced by AAAA players, reclamation project, and perhaps a minor trade for a guy like Snider or De Aza. I have no such proof that the Orioles will spend.

I predict our payroll will drop to $10 million dollars in 3 years when Jones contract is up.

If revenue stays flat and payroll goes down, ownership earns more profits. That's the reason to own a business, increased profits. Orioles are a successful business. That's all that matters.

A lesser product means fewer people will pay their hard earned money to see it. Invest in the quality and you will improve customer interest. Let your best power hitter, best starting pitcher, and best noncloser RP leave and replace them with cheap options that are 99.99% likely to perform considerably is worse mean inferior product and loss of interest. Pretty simple IMO!
