David Price as an Oriole is not only impossible, its dumb

Let me explain.. If I was Tampa and Baltimore asked for a trade including Price, I would ask for either Bundy or Gausman, AND someone project-able like Jonathon Schoop. If this happened, we would only have Price for one or two years for at least the $15M he's getting in arbitration from the Rays. When Price would become a free agent after those one or two years, there is zero chance that we keep him. If we did get Price, we would lose one of our four other starters, and possibly our second basemen(Schoop). This would leave us with holes at SP, 2B, LF, and DH. As a fellow Orioles fan, I would rather deal with what have and accept what the front office has done for us so far(Weeks, Webb, and now Balfour), and go after another bat to fill a couple of those holes.

With Price

Wieters - C

Davis - 1B

Weeks/Flaherty- 2B

Machado - 3B

Hardy - SS

Pearce/Neimold - LF

Jones - CF

Markakis - RF

Pearce/Reimold - DH

Price/Tillman/Chen/Gonzalez/Norris - SP


Without Price

Wieters - C

Davis - 1B

Schoop - 2B

Machado - 3B

Hardy - SS

SHIN SOO CHOO/NELSON CRUZ - LF

Jones - CF

Markakis - RF

LUKE SCOTT - DH

Tillman/Chen/Gonzalez/Norris/Gausman/Bundy/Britton/Matusz - SP

The O's could definitely afford Luke Scott, possibly for almost nothing. And I wouldn't mind having him back in the lineup... He brings life into the clubhouse and provides some big time pop at the back end of our lineup. As for Choo or Nelson Cruz, GO BIG OR GO HOME. I would love to see one of these two locked up for the Orioles for the next three or four years.

As always,

Go O's
