Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun has a slew of Orioles rumors for us this morning.
A trade has been discussed that would send Hayden Penn and Brian Roberts to Atlanta for Marcus Giles and Adam LaRoche. The Orioles love Roberts, though, so it’s a long shot. The Braves are pushing for him. Tim Hudson could be part of a package as well.
Zrebiec calls the O’s a long shot for Luis Gonzalez with something near a one-year, $7MM offer. Rosenthal calls it the best offer, though Gonzo may not accept it because of geographical preference.
A Miguel Tejada possibility is raised. It’s also mentioned that the Mariners want Erik Bedard for Richie Sexson. Shooting for the stars I guess.
The Orioles like the idea of importing Rocco Baldelli, but would hesitate to send both Adam Loewen and Chris Ray to Tampa Bay.
