I know they had plenty of pitching depth, but no move they make comes at a price to the future of the team. The Orioles, for now, should operate like the Rays. However, the Orioles have a huge advantage. Once the O's have put together a competitive team, they have the money to go out and add a superstar as the final piece. Tampa had a huge hole at first base this offseason and two of the biggest 1B superstars were available. If the Orioles had the team Tampa had at that point, they have the money to get one of those guys.
Baltimore should not be trading prospects for guys like Garza. They should be trading guys like Hammel who at this point could probably bring back at least a top 100 prospect and one or two others.
