What moves do you HONESTLY expect the Orioles will make this offseason?

I think the O's big signing this offseason will be Victor Martinez to a 3 year, $39m deal to play 1B full time. I do think there will be at least 1 trade to bring in a full-time player, maybe a 3B, maybe a SP.

But something tells me Victor Martinez is on this team's radar and I'm not sure that it's a good thing. It certainly wouldn't be at that contract.

There is a lot of decent 1B available, I have little doubt we pick up one of them.

I see an outside chance of trading for Reynolds but more likely we pick up one of the FA 3B like Uribe.

There is a good chance of bringing back Koji, if not we pick up another reliever.

Veteran starter.

Roch brought it up a few days ago.


Interesting, and thanks. Still sounds like fantasy rumor at this point, but if Reynolds could be had for bullpen arms, I'd be all for it. If guys like Arrieta, Bergesen or Tillman entered the D-Backs' discourse, though...no thanks.

    • There are a few problems. One, Scott has regressed big time. He can't make shots at all. Young has a bit too, although he had a big game against Penn State. Those two need to score a lot if this team wants to do anything.  The team has zero depth. None of the freshmen have looked that good. Kaiser finally made some big shots tonight, but has struggled mightily. Same thing with Harris-Smith, he has struggled big time. We are counting on those two being impact players right away, and it doesn't look like they are. Lamothe doesn't get any playing time. There is no one off the bench that is good. Batchelor sort of sucks. Losing Martinez and Hart hurt a lot, they both brought energy and scoring. Long brings a little, but his game is limited. The good news is the season is still young. The losses against Davidson and UAB were bad without a doubt. Aside from that they don't have any bad losses. If they had lost against Penn State at home, which they almost did, that would have been trouble.  Julian Reese looks to have improved a lot, I will say that. He is not good at the free throw line, but he is a monster rebounder and can score around the hoop. Finally, 3 point shooting- they suck. Like really bad. Willard needs to recruit some shooters badly. If the freshmen improve and Scott finds his game, this team will get better. But I don't have any large hopes for this year. If they make the tournament as an 8-10 that would be a small miracle. 
    • Let us have our fun and hope for the worst possible outcome.   Soto was DRS  -4 and OAA -9 playing LF last year.  We can only hope it gets even worse in NY.   Surprisingly, his 35 homers show an expected home run total of only 27 if playing all games in Yankee Stadium.   In old Yankee stadium they used to call LCF Death Valley.  I guess it’s still kind of big out there.   Good luck in NY, Juan.  NOT!
    • It's still a great trade and the Yankees have deep enough pockets to replenish their pitching with FAs. It doesn't reak of desperation at all to me. Literally every team should have been calling the Padres about Soto when they put him on the market because players "that good" are rarely ever available. 
    • Back the truck up for Elias and Sig. 
    • It’s like the Yankees have a crystal ball with a look into their future with Soto and Stanton on the same roster.
