Orioles quiet at the deadline
July 31, 2008Posted by on
So far the Orioles have made no moves before the July 31st trade deadline. Whispers from the warehouse are that they won’t make any moves for the waiver deadline, but will attempt to make some moves before the “real” deadline on August 31st. The O’s have some players that they might be able to move in August (like Millar, Payton, and/or R. Hernandez), but they probably will not net the big return that a July 31st or offseason trade would. I suppose that the O’s will probably be active during the offseason again, so it isn’t anything to get all upset about. Andy MacPhail is in it for the long haul, I guess I’d just prefer that he were picking off some more prospects right now to keep it fresh in my mind.
