Wednesday Bird Droppings: Where Chris Tillman is probably coming back

Just a few days until the Winter Meetings start where maybe something will happen!

MLB: Baltimore Orioles at Texas Rangers Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

Happy hump day, Camden Chatters! We are now 111 days from Opening Day and four days from the start of Winter Meetings at Disney World. I wouldn’t hate to see a picture of Dan Duquette with Mickey Mouse, but surely he’ll be too busy wheeling and dealing for such shenanigans.

Why the Orioles should trade Mark Trumbo - The Baltimore Wire
I don't really think there is any argument as to WHY he should be traded. But that doesn't mean it will happen.

If you're a Mike Mussina fan, this is a nice long read for you.

I certainly hope so.

The Orioles aren't going to sign any marquee free agents. But they could sign these guys and possibly improve (except Jose Bautista, he's toast).

More talk about Tillman - School of Roch
If Tillman is really going to get $10 million as MLBTR suggests, then I wish him well in his future, non-Orioles endeavors.

Is today your birthday? Happy birthday! You have three Orioles birthday buddies, but probably only one that you’ve heard of. Mr. Larry Sheets turns 58 years old today. Sheets spent six seasons in the 1980s with the Orioles, his best being 1987 when he posted a .921 OPS. He now owns a batting cage/laser tag/mini golf joint out in Westminster, so stop by and wish him a happy birthday if you’re in the area.

Also celebrating today are Mike Parrott, who appeared in three games for the 1977 Orioles, and Jeff Schneider, whose 11 games out of the bullpen in 1981 make up his entire big league career.

On this day in 2010 the Orioles traded for Mark Reynolds, the home run hitting sunflower seed lover from the Arizona Diamondbacks.
