Orioles Acquire Dana Eveland

The Orioles acquired lefty Dana Eveland from the Dodgers, tweets Jon Paul Morosi of FOX Sports.  The Orioles will give up a 22-year-old lefty Jarret Martin and outfielder Tyler Henson, announced the team.

Eveland, 28, will be arbitration eligible for the first time in 2012.  He posted a 3.03 ERA in 29 2/3 innings for the Dodgers this year, tossing another 154 frames in Triple-A.  Executive vice president of baseball operations Dan Duquette said in a statement, "We think Dana is a qualified Major League pitcher who won 15 games last year between Albuquerque and Los AngelesHe provides depth and can compete for a starting spot on our roster in 2012."

So this was the trade the Orioles were expected to announce today and rumored at last night. Its tough to be an Orioles fan.

Could be worse.  You could be in Pittsburg.

I don’t know, the Pirates have long since accepted their lot in life. I think when you get to the point where your big trade announcement is acquiring Dana Eveland, you’ve hit rock bottom.

Pittsburg signed Erik Bedard.  Think I would rather have him than Eveland.

Lets just all agree to disagree, and agree on the sadness of having to argue over who is worse off when these are their top deals.  No one wins here.

You would rather have Eveland than Bedard?  Only one of those is a pitcher who can pitch in the Al East.

I never said that.  What good are either of them going to do you?  Bedard will only give you up to 5 innings for half the season if you’re lucky.

Eveland may let up more runs in the 10 innings he pitches than Bedard will in his entire season.

Exactly.  Pick your poison.  Someone who’s going to lose for you or someone who’s going to lose for you.  One does it faster, the other costs you more.

I would rather be a Pirate fan right now than an Oriole fan

I can interchange those two names right now and makes no difference.  At least O’s fans have had something decent to watch in the last few decades.  What have Pirates fan had to rave about since Bonds left?

I mean as of right now, and moving forward, I would rather be a Pirate fan.

Even still.  I see nothing to rave about.  If there’s one thing we can learn from these two teams is not to get hope up.  If they want me to believe they’re going to turn things around, make it happen first.  Until then, it’s the same old story year in and year out.

I have to admit though, that this headline is still pretty damn funny every time I read it after what we’ve seen today already.

You really lose either way.  The Pirates at least don’t have to play in the Al Beast.

As an Orioles fan at the (literal) exact center of a triangle between Baltimore and Pittsburgh and Washington. I can assure you that both the Pirates and Orioles are equally pathetic. The Nationals will win a WS long before either.

Stop the presses!!! Take the Pujols headline down! Now this is a story!

Curious to see how the rest of the AL East responds to this blockbuster.

Albert who!? Eveland in the hizzzouse!

3 years 8 months ago

Boo what? Is he really going to be a starter next year?  We really don’t have enough to trade for someone of consequence?

3 years 8 months ago

So we traded for an arb eligible starter why?

wow, the orioles are aware he can’t hack it in the AL East though right?

3 years 8 months ago

is he aware the O’s can’t hack it in the AL East? (coming from an O’s fan)

3 years 8 months ago

I’ve said it before: the O’s just love former Jays pitchers, don’t they?

Mikey Roederer

I really think this is a good pick up for Baltimore..He slides into their rotation easily and should be good for at least 175 innings. Sucks to have to come right after the Albert signing though, Baltimore could’ve made a huge splash and nobody would have noticed

PJaysW

for reals?

*I* could slide into that rotation easily.

And I’m black and orange throughout, Balmer raised.

Easily?

He’s thrown 175 MLB innings exactly zero times since his “breakout” year with Oakland in 2008.

I really hate this team.

O’s better only be sending PTBNL, cash, or (preferably) Duquette to LA on this.

3 years 8 months ago

Duquette is awful, I’m so glad he has hit the ground stumbling.

Because in Baltimore, pitching is for the birds?

Angels get Pujols and Wilson. Orioles get Eveland. Guess that’s why the Orioles are who they are.
