“The club took the stance that if you file, there’s a trial. We took file-to-trial this year,” he said.

“We were able to resolve six of the nine cases and it looks like we’re going to have to go to arbitration with a couple of them, but we were prepared. We’re not afraid of the process. The Orioles have done well in arbitration. That’s not our first choice. We tried to get a deal with all of the players, but we weren’t successful in this case, and to the extent that we’re at this stage of the season, I expect that we’ll go to trial.”

You need to read more carefully:

The Orioles are 10-1 in hearings since Peter Angelos became majority owner and 8-0 when general counsel H. Russell Smouse handles the cases. However, Smouse isn’t involved this year.

I guess a grand total of $1.2 mm in dispute in the three cases wasn't enough for Smouse to bother with.

He won't go cheaply. I still think it is Granderson. 

 

Well, you were right about Trumbo.  I've always wished Granderson would someday play for us.  This oughta make Jonesy happy, it does me.  If this materializes, now we'd have to trade Kim or Smith for whatever you can get.  That's alright with me.  So, which one?

Joey stays in Norfolk.

I was actually wrong by a couple days on Trumbo. And thought he'd have a vesting option as well. 

Give yourself more credit.  I never doubted ya.  Hey, if Joey goes to Norfolk, who's the platoon partner for Smith or Kim?  Granderson would play every day in RF, wouldn't he?  I suppose you could use Trumbo in LF against LHP.  What would be the point in keeping both Smith and Kim?  So, no Rule 5 guy, but Mancini sticks to DH against the lefties?

It's what I would think. Granderson is not great against lefthanders. Either. But in their careers, Machado, Castillo, Hardy, Jones, Trumbo and Schoop are.

I don't see anything suggesting Brach will be traded. Did I miss something?

Couple means two unless Dan was talking about one of them fancy three person couples the french like.
