Sunday Bird Droppings

Kim Klement-US PRESSWIRE

All the day's Orioles news. And in this case, that isn't much.

Despite whispers, dont expect Orioles to make a run at Kinsler - baltimoresun.com
"While Ian Kinsler would fit well into Duquette’s offensive philosophy -- he has a career .350 on-base percentage – he’s coming off a down season in which his home runs (19), RBIs (72) and stolen bases (21) [decreased]. Kinsler is also coming off a season in which he made 18 errors, the most of any AL second baseman."

Steve Melewski: What is O's priority? Upgrade the pitching or the offense?
"Despite the fact that the Orioles scored just 10 runs and hit only .187 in the American League Division Series against the Yankees, I don't buy the argument that the series exposed the offense as an O's weakness."

Need a fix? Here’s what’s happening in the winter leagues (AL East) - Through The Fence Baseball
"Alexi Casilla — The Orioles newest addition is looking to earn a roster spot by playing in the Dominican League this winter. In only 28 at-bats, Casilla has eight hits, three of them triples." Zelous Wheeler and Jonathan Schoop get some stat love, too.
