Obviously, the baseball world was in shock yesterday with the untimely deaths of Yordano Ventura and Andy Marte and the Super Bowl seems to take up lot of air/space in the sporting press over late January/early February, but that's okay...there's not a whole lot going on in Birdland right now.

It probably WON'T surprise you that the Mark Trumbo deal is absent from this list, but I honestly was surprised the O's went with Welington Castillo.

The O's reunited with Miguel Tejada on this day in 2010 and inked Wilson Betemit in 2012. On this day in 2014, the Rays signed Grant Balfour after the Orioles had nixed a deal on the grounds of a failed physical. Worked out pretty well for the O's.
