Does this news push an extension for JJ Hardy?
Does Flaherty/Valencia share third base duties if Manny is unable to go?
Does Schoop get pushed before he is ready for the show?
Do the Orioles look for a Trade/Free Agent as an insurance policy?
So many questions at a position we thought was filled for the near future.
Roberts is likely resigned because of a weak free agent market and weak farm system.
Hardy should absolutely be resigned. However, is he open to sliding over to 3B in two years?
As for Schoop, I know he's enough power to be tantalizing for some at 2B. But the team needs a guy that gets on base at every position. We need to attack opposing starting pitchers in an attempt to run up pitch counts. Not siting with our fingers crossed for a 2 or 3 run home run.
