Odds & Ends: Orioles, Padres, Theriot

Here are some links on an understandably slow Thanksgiving night…

  • Baltimore GM Andy MacPhail tells Steve Melewski of MASN Sports that the Orioles are willing to offer a big contract under the right circumstances.  MacPhail points out that the club offered $140MM to Mark Teixeira as evidence that they are willing to spend.  Given their recent history, do you believe him?
  • The Padres are keeping close watch on first round draft pick Donavan Tate, writes Bill Center of the San Diego Union-Tribune.  The third overall pick is recovering after undergoing sports hernia surgery in October.
  • Despite plans to shift Ryan Theriot from shortstop to second base, Cubs GM Jim Hendry tells Paul Sullivan of the Chicago Tribune that he has faith in the soon-to-be 30-year-old.  Theriot has been told to prepare for a shift to the other side of the bag to make room for Starlin CastroRecently it has been reported that the Cubs are interested in Mets second baseman Luis Castillo.
