It’s almost Christmas time here for us baseball fans. While the Orioles seem to have made some progress during the Winter Meetings and in the past few weeks in filling in some holes on the roster – now, it seems that things have gone eerily quiet.
During the past month, the Orioles got a new third baseman, shortstop, a reliever and some potential bench help; however, the team is still looking for a first baseman.
As we all know, the Orioles have been after Adam LaRoche and according to sources has been offered a three-year pact. The only problem is that the first baseman has not agreed to a deal – yet.
Maybe he’s on vacation, or might be using the Orioles to leverage another deal.
Or, he just might not be into playing for the Orioles. It does take two sides to come to an agreement.
LaRoche might do some damage at Camden Yards with the short right field porch, and won’t emberass you at first.
However, if you look at LaRoche’s numbers, I don’t think he’s all that great.
