With that farm system it wouldn't be short term.

Saw this when we signed Endy, im very interested in what is said about Angle and infield, is this just a rumour?

'What it does do, however, is add another veteran player and give manager Buck Showalter some flexibility in using both Reimold and Chavez. The departure of the left-handed-hitting Felix Pie, who signed a Minor League with the Indians this winter, left the Orioles without a true backup for Jones. Speedy outfielder Matt Angle, who bats left-handed and plays center field, debuted last season -- though the organization wanted him to get infield work this winter, hinting at perhaps a position change or more of a utility role.'

I think it's pretty clear they want Angle to get more seasoning in the minors. He could certainly use it too. It's a 1yr deal so it's not as if they are blocking him from anything.

What scares me is that the only way that Dan Duquette may have been able to get his job is to tell Peter Angelos what he wanted to hear. To wit: we DON'T need to rebuild again.

WRONG!
