Orioles acquire Julio Lugo?

This is making its round through the intertubes and I'm just confused.

Julio Lugo hasn't been a solid player in...his career.  Sure, there are concerns with Brian Roberts' back, Robert Andio as a viable option at second, or Ty Wigginton taking over if Roberts needs some time to recover, but Julio Lugo?

If this is an April Fools Day prank I'm going to be pissed, but even Buster Olney is reporting it on Twitter so there seems to be some legitamacy to it.

Hell, if Roberts is going to need some time, put Justin Turner at second for a few weeks, then send him back down.

Not to mention that Lugo has a large contract that the Red Sox threw at him a few years ago.  Does that contract come onto the books for the Os or are they off the hook?  What will Andy MacPhail have to send to the Cardinals to complete the deal?  I'm a little too heated about this.
