Orioles a darkhorse for beltre?

According to Buster Olney, the Orioles are a darkhorse for 3B Adrien Beltre. This would make a world of sense. Mark Reynolds can shift over to 1st, his average 3B defense should play extremely well at 1st. Beltre fits right in at 3rd and plays gold glove caliber defense. Not a bad lineup if u ask me.

2B-Brian Roberts
CF-Adam Jones
RF-Nick Markakis
3B-Adrien Beltre
DH-Luke Scott
C-Matt Weiters
1B-Mark Reynolds
LF-Felix Pie
SS-JJ Hardy

Bench-
OF- Nolan Riemold
C/1B- Jake fox
MI-Robert Andino
3B/DH- Josh Bell

Beltre had the Orioles on his "not favorite list", but told officals that he will not totally rule them out. What I was told Beltre would only be intrested as a fall back option and limit it to one year, but he wants to exhaust all options first. If it came to one year deals, he would be marketing it to the Rangers, Angels, and Athletics.

I get the appeal of this guy, however, personally, I don't want anyone here who doesn't want to be here. I also undrestand that with a one year contract, there is a better chance he will perform in order to look at the bigger and better deal a year from now. I'll pass on this one.
