God I hope not. While the run at .500 has been nice the Orioles are NOT a playoff team this year, and trading away quality prospects for a rental would be idiotic. The recent losing streak is the best thing for this team, as hopefully they will sell off every piece with any value who isnt in the long term plans. Millar, Huff, Walker/Bradford/Sherrill, Payton, Ramon should all be headed out of town, and maybe MM and Roberts if the price is right. They've got some very nice young talent in the farm system (finally) but not enough to start traded them off for quick fixes.
Arrietta, Tillman and Weiters are all probably going to be up by the ASB next year, and guys like Spoone and Reimold could be up in September this year.
