Um, shouldn't they be?
Well the O's are pretty crappy, but unless the pitcher they are receiving in the Tejada deal is any good, they got hosed. I look at the O's and their best players are Bedard, Markakis, Roberts and Tejada. Maybe I forgot an arm, but if they deal all 3, they are left with Markakis and prospects. I guess they should rebuild, but can't they rebuild and keep a Bedard? The O's are a dreadful franchise. Whatever its the O's its not like they are going to make the playoffs. The O's, D-Rays and Blue Jays are really stuck behind the big money of the Yanks and Sox. Maybe the Yanks and Sox should just have their own division, LOL. Though the Tribe is still better than both unless of course the Sox get Santana.

Like its been said Bedard isn't going to re-sign. So if you dont trade him you lose him for nothing. Tejada is a good trade piece that is clearly past his prime. Lets just say the orioles aren't going to win a championship with tejada in the lineup. I was surprised by the roberts talk but if he brings back pie or hill i would be very happy. Keep in mind the orioles drafted Wieter in the most recent draft so moving ramon hernandez is not completely out of the question...
For the first time in my lifetime I feel like the orioles actually have some direction to their time. For years now they have been stuck in a "are we rebuilding or not zone". At least at this point the Os are looking to make some good moves. I'm also pretty optimistic that the orioles haven't rushed into a deal. They seem to really be trying to get the most for their players
