Hillary's Vast Right-Wing Cons...
I see the Yankees traded for some good minor league mound talent (latest being Tailion) by sending prospects. Over next couple of years, Orioles mite have some excess among position players that they can use-outfielders particularly. It takes too long to develop their own and so far they have done very little of that.Injuries and poor drafting have left them pretty barren. I'd rather see them try trades instead of laying out tens of millions for lousy free agent pitchers like Ubaldo Jimenez.I do hope they go w/a pitcher w/their top pick next year.The Orioles have had some success w/their top picks (Hall, G-Rod).

I think the problem is, if you trade for high quality pitchers, teams are going to expect a large haul for them. Also, if they are quality, they will have very large salaries. O's aren't going to give out mega, multi year contracts, I don't believe. I think you have to take your chances and draft a bunch of flame throwers and hope for the best.

Okay. We're number 30 in ERA and WHIP. Drafted almost no pitchers. Let's do the math on that approach.
