I have to wonder if the team is even going to try and ink anything this off season or wait till next off season?
What kind of money and length will we be looking at with these two players? I'm thinking Wieters on the open market would get 5/$50. Davis provided he puts up numbers somewhere in between his '12 & '13 seasons would get 6/ $110.......
Let me know if I'm far off on the projected salaries.
Do the Orioles value one over the other? Sign both, trade one....? Keep in mind there are no real 1b prospects in our system. Chance sisco is still in the lower levels....

Why not try moving one or both of these guys and have a team that could compete in baseball's toughest division for 5 years with a payroll the team can actually handle? Our current team isn't brimming with talent with either player. One or the other could fetch a return in talent that would put them over the top.
