Did the Red Sox trade set a precedent this offseason? Should the Orioles be dangling Zach Britton? Over the weekend, there was talk that the Rays are listening on Jake McGee and Brad Boxberger. I wonder what this does to the market for Darren O'Day. The Red Sox were rumored to be one of the lead suitors for the beloved submariner, but it's hard to imagine that they'd trade two top 100 prospects for a late inning reliever and then commit multiple years and possibly up to $10 million a year for another. For what it's worth, Craig Kimbrel is slated to make $37 million over the remainder of his contract.

Good Darren O'day anecdote.

On this day in 1961, the Orioles traded Harry Chiti, father of Dom, and others for Johnny Temple.

A couple problem children that were not long for Birdland have birthdays today. Fernando Cabrera,who was never able to harness his stuff at the major league level, turns 34 today. A reserve middle infielder who shall remain nameless turns 40. Pete Rose, Jr., Buster Narum and Harry Chiti are also November 16 babies.
