With about 10 or so days to go before the first workout for the Orioles, they've invited a few more guys to camp. Veteran outfielder Randy Winn, 34-year-old right-hander Ryan Drese and righty prospect Wynn Pelzer were invited to Spring Training as non-roster invitees.
And yes, we are still waiting on a decision from Vladmir Guerrero. Although I'd like to see what he could as a fan in the Orioles lineup -- I'd really prefer the Orioles to focus on the future and see what Pie/Reimold can do in the outfield.
Obviously, baseball general managers have a lot of trepidation with signing a-wrong-side-of-30-DH with bad knees, plus an inability to play a position.
Some of the other Oriole bloggers at FanFest really wanted him, others didn't. As it is, he's stil a free agent and if someone really wanted him by now, he would have a team.
As someone from Camden Chat told me on the Twitter the other day, "Vlad just really, really doesn't want to play in Baltimore. It's pretty obvious."
