Can you elaborate more? I mean they were a 90-win team last season. Why wait until they are a 80 win team?
I do not believe they should not make a move. I just don't want them to make a move for the sake of making a move. Looking at the contracts, what FA signing should the Orioles have made? If there was a good trade out there, I trust that Duquette would have already made it.
I want them to improve as much as anyone but I really don't see what they could have done. They certainly should not do anything out of desperation to just "do something". It's kind of like taking a kid into a store and telling them they can get something. Some kids will buy something because they can, while others may pass because they don't see anything they like.
They were a 90 win team last year, but I think even Buck knows they may have been playing over their heads. If the O's hit 90 wins again this year I think we'll see them make a big move next off-season.
Also, remember, this off season is not over yet.
