Wednesday Bird Droppings

USA Today Sports

Winter Meetings? Whatever. What do you think about 80's movies and Trance music?

Somewhat active day yesterday. Haren to the Nats. Boston continues to spend their war chest on older platoon bats. The Marlins ship Yuni Escobar off to the Rays and could be looking at a team payroll in the $20m range. All the while Zach Greinke and Josh Hamilton keep waiting out the market.

And the O's? Well, the O's have stuck to the sidelines for the most part. A few meetings, trade speculation, but no concrete offers. Let the links shine some light on the status of our Birds.

If the O's are going to give up their 1st round pick, I'd rather it be to sign Swisher than LaRoche.

Today is the Birthday of a number of old-timey O's. Billy Shindle, Frank Bowerman, and Dick Cogan. Also born today, Gary Roenicke.
