I think he should resign based simply on the fact that I am not sure there is enough in the Orioles farm system to acquire a power bat (if free agency fails) and a quality SP. Since Baltimore is not high on any free agent's list of destinations - use some pieces to get the power bat that they desperately need, resign Izturis, and make a run at a starter like de la Rosa.
I think Wiggy needs to re-sign as the utility guy, and NOTHING MORE THAN THAT. His average gets on my nerves when he is an every day guy. Especially when the power fell out, he was practically useless.
Izzy will be re-signed because our money will be spent on 1B/3B. Or even go for a Uribe-type who can play all over.
Speaking of De La Rosa, check out the latest thread on him. I wrote about how he was a speculated FA looked at by the O's.
