If a starter is too expensive, I'd like to make a move for a good bullpen arm or two though-say in double-A who could make it up here later this yr. or next yr.We could need another closer soon.

How much did Saunders cost last year? Basically nothing. And he clearly upgraded the staff.
It's just wrong to suggest that the only viable upgrades will be expensive, or that anything affordable won't be worth acquiring. As is the case every year, there will be plenty of available veterans at the deadline that would improve the team. If the Orioles continue winning at their current clip, they should be in the market to upgrade the team. Any of the players from the bottom two sections of osforlife's list would improve the Orioles rotation.

I've read the same thing from several different sources. I think the Phillies were serious but DD wasn't crazy.
