Well, they are kind of stuck in between. There is no reason for Gyorko to play at AAA and if they think he can play 3B for them for the next 6 years it makes much more sense to trade Headley this off-season than to trade Gyorko.

I wish the Orioles could get stuck in between an elite player and an elite prospect lol.

Headley is going to cost a lot. I would love him but at what price?? Assuming it's Arrieta, Matusz and Schoop, would you do that??? And shift Manny and JJ to SS and 2B respectively?? 8-)

I would but most probably wouldn't. I don't know about shifting JJ to 2B though, seems like a waste of his defensive talent. I'd try and trade him if we got Headley.
