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.
