Future Free Agent Push For Orioles

Peter Schmuck and Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun talked to Orioles owner Peter Angelos:

Orioles owner  Peter Angelos confirmed the Orioles are planning to make a significant free-agent push when the team gets within range of contending for a playoff berth next winter or in advance of the 2011 season.

The AL East may be even more competitive in the near future.  Perhaps in the 2009-10 offseason the Orioles will consider a pitcher like John Lackey or even a slugger like Matt Holliday.  The 2009-10 free agent market is flush with outfielders, which is already a strength of the Orioles.  The 2010-11 market may boast names such as Carlos Pena, J.J. Hardy, Roy Halladay, and Brandon Webb.
