Should Orioles Target Mariners Outfielder Seth Smith?

If the Os are going to add an outfielder, would be a RHH.

I might be missing something, but having watched this team all year I just don't see the need for another outfielder unless you are talking about a 5th tpye guy. Pitching is our obvious need.

We could play Trumbo primarily as a DH let Alvarez PH and play Smith in RF. Smith's bat much better v RHP than Alvarez, and defense better than Trumbo.

The difference between Smith and Alvarez is marginal he has better average but Alvarez hits for more power and he is hitting the ball well now. Smith looked great against us but he is an average player. There is no point giving up a prospect or two for a marginal upgrade. Upton fits better because of the speed defense and being right handed.

Smith v RHP .843 OPS Alvarez .816. Smith 11 HR 43 RBI, Alvarez 12 HR 31 RBI.

That is a marginal difference he has a slight higher OPS because he has a higher average. Pedro has more homers and the RBI's per at bat are about the same. Smith has more at bats vs right handers. If the moves was just a trade Pedro for Smith i do it but I don't give up a prospect or two for Smith to get little advantage. I want a right hander that can hit lefties as that is a bigger need. Steve Pearce would be a better move and we now Buck likes him.

Yes we need an OF'er to take over RF, move Trumbo to DH and get whatever we can for Pedro

We can't continue to give away games like last night

Why don't you ever post while the team is winning? Then when a player makes

an error and team loses then here you come. The O's are 17 games over .500.

What can be gotten for Pedro? He can't field, so which of the AL playoff contenders are desperate for two months of a left-handed DH?
