For God’s sake Orioles, sign Fielder and try to be relevant for a few minutes. I don’t even like the Orioles, but their organization pains me to watch…

A 48 hour headline on ESPN is worth what, two or three wins?

Maybe the O’s can trade for Carlos Lee?

if houstoun were to trade prospects in order for the os to take lee and his 19 million dollar contract for a year, I’d do it.  you have a potential 2-3 win player, and you could get a prospect out of it.  Considering houstons monetary problems right now I think that they would do it too

Please sign Fielder so he stays out of the AL West. We don’t want his contract, and would not like to face his bat.

Would make a very interesting AL East in the 1B category. A-Gon, Tex and Fielder (Pena, too).

“someone just like him?” seriously, where are you going to find this imaginary guy? not on FA, not through trade when your farm system is pretty pathetic, only international waters is the option left.

I am sure someone in my extended family fits that description. Will Orioles be interested in signing him if he can swing a bat? I doubt by “someone just like him”, DD meant PF’s height and weight.

i know that , but they arent many who match his stats whether they be height and weight or on field production, i was amused by the choice of words used and made a bad pun

They can perhaps recruit someone from the Klumps?

Sandoval might be the closest

Why would the O’s want ANOTHER soon to be dead beat in Carlos Lee?! Look at what happened with Derek Lee, Vlad, and bringing back Miguel Tejada.  They need pitching, THEN a bat. Fielder is a good player, but not what the O’s need.

So getting more run support for our pitching doesn’t help? Riiiiiiiiiiiiiight.
