SI.com: O's had one of the worst offseasons of any team

John Heyman puts the O's at 25th out of the 30 teams with this little number:

25. Orioles: They got Nick Markakis on a long-term deal, but didn't get any new players to make anyone think there's light at the end of the Fort McHenry Tunnel.

John Heyman, while the team won't necessarily be making waves this season, you're a clueless, clueless man. All in all, this has been a pretty darn good offseason in terms of getting pieces in place to make that next step.

Hopefully the egg on his face at the end of the season will be easily seen.

I find it funny how you all continue to hammer on these guys every offseason when they come out with lists like this and every year, they end up being right.

You all need to grow some thicker skin and pay attention to what has actually happened.

What Heyman said isn't actually false EXCEPT he should have acknowledged a few things:

1) We acquired a couple of low risk/high reward targets that could really pay long term dividends.

2) The Orioles have placed an emphasis on defense and feel that it is undervalued.

Those 2 things should have been mentioned.

Yeah, well...he didn't. And that points to a lack of bothering to do any sort of journalistic legwork. It's a sloppy article.

I would argue that the Blue Jays had a worse offseason than us. I mean they lost their #2 and picked up Millar and Burress and missed the chance to claim Salazar and Moore. (OK that was a joke)

But honestly, who cares. I would say we had a good offseason but if 2009 is the benchmark then I don't know that you could argue with him.
