Monday Bird Droppings: The Orioles, and everyone else, head to the Winter Meetings

Are Mark Trumbo and Pedro Alvarez destined to leave Birdland?

Adam Hunger-USA TODAY Sports

Didn't take too long for the Winter Meetings rumor mill to get cooking. You've probably seen rumors about Mark Trumbo and Welington Castillo here in the last few days. Dan Duquette made additional news on the Trumbo front in a radio appearance Sunday. He also had some, in my view, unwelcome comments regarding Manny Machado. So, yeah...

Duquette: Orioles have made Trumbo multiple contract offers | I mean, we know how this ends, right?

...and I wish him well except for at least 19 dates in 2017.
