*If we are getting Lugo for next to nothing, who is paying his salary? The Red Sox. The Cardinals, like the Orioles, paid Lugo league minimum, which is currently $400,000. He's owed $9 million this season, and he has a $9 million vesting option for 2011 that's unreachable because he hasn't compiled the necessary plate appearances since 2007. Boston is on the hook for all of Lugo's 2010 salary, which should -- at the very least -- make O's fans smile.Britt's Bird Watch: Lugo Trade: What does it mean for the Os?
