Hello Camden Chatters! The Winter Meetings continue on and the rumors are flying fast and furious out of National Harbor. The Orioles haven't actually done anything, not like the rival Red Sox who yesterday traded for Chris Sale. No!
The Orioles seem to be wasting their time on Mark Trumbo, but they've also started talking to Chris Tillman about an extension, and Dan Duquette took some time of out of his day to tell Jose Bautista that nobody likes him.
What news will come out of the meetings today? Nobody can say, but be sure it keep checking back here as we'll be keeping you abreast of all important goings on. Not that the Orioles will actually do anything, because you know.
