It wouldn't surprise me to see Edwin Jackson making that April 15 start.

Good article. No doubt this is DD's specialty.  He has done  very good job of bolstering the AA/AAA pitching depth with these moves.  Some of these guys may pan out to the big club as well.  Nice to have other options other than Mike Wright and Joe Gunkle.

The Orioles have the tenth highest payroll in MLB. How can that be cheap?

How about Davis, O'Day, Trumbo and Hardy?

You have to admit he's been mostly successful in his transactions. The Orioles have been a whole lot better since he became GM.

Jettisoning Gonzo was a very peculiar move.  I still haven't figured that one out yet.

It saved them $5M. For what it's worth, every beat reporter said that was the single reason for releasing him.

Dumpy should only be allowed to find position players. His record with pitching is brutal, outside of Chen and Gonzales in his first year as GM.

I think part of it is a culmination of things that were outside his control coming into place. Don't underestimate Buck's involvement, either.

 

His smaller moves have been OK. He's hit on more than a few.

Let's see, his teams have won more than any other in the AL since he arrived, and its common knowledge that Angelos isn't the easiest owner for whom to work. Suffice it to say I like our dumpster more than most.

Don't forget Brach, who was literally stolen from the Padres.

It just isn't very impressive to me when the feather in his cap as far as pitching is concerned is one good reliever in four years. It's even worse when you consider how many good pitchers he traded away, and how horrible his free agent acquisitions have been.

Who did he trade away that was good in an Os uniform
