Some dude at Fox Sports: Look for O's to start moving veterans

I haven't the first clue who Jon Paul Morosi is, but he wrote an article over at Fox Sports stating that certain Oriole veterans are on the trading block.  Selected highlights:

Several teams have already inquired about left-handed hitters Aubrey Huff and Luke Scott, an industry executive said Saturday.

Huff will probably be moved before the July 31 non-waiver deadline, because he's in the final year of a contract that pays him $8 million this year. (He doesn't have a no-trade provision, either.) Scott is a less obvious trade candidate, because he's not scheduled to be a free agent until after the 2012 season.

The Reds, Giants, Tigers and Braves — each of whom would like to add power at one corner position or another — are among the teams that could match up well in trade talks with the Orioles.

I suppose the Orioles have real options this time.  Huff is a good arbitration candidate because even if he accepts it he's on a year to year basis.  His declining OPS really isn't all that shocking as 2008 was an outlier.  Nonetheless, perhaps we can get something useful for him.

Scott's another matter, really.  Scott does have value, though in an ideal world he could play first to add some versatility to his game...I'd like LF to be occupied by Reimold and Pie going forward, so Scott's value to us is more as a DH.

Not listed in the article but someone who should definitely be traded is Danys Baez.  Hopefully we can deal him before he turns into a pumpkin, as is his destiny.

The Orioles are desperate for young corner IF prospects to join Snyder.
