Should the Orioles close the deal, the White Sox and Tigers will have to look elsewhere for top-notch lefty relievers. Alan Embree, Steve Kline, Darren Oliver, and Mike Stanton may be the best options.
Here’s my 2007 Team Outlook for Baltimore. They’ll probably add more relief help, a starter, and some 1B/LF types. They snagged one possibility today. The O’s would have to increase payroll past $80MM to make it work.
