They might have a match in the Dodgers, who could trade a starting pitcher for Gibbons. The Dodgers have targeted Larry Bigbie instead, however, offering up Odalis Perez or Kazuhisa Ishii in return."
Typical Dodgers. Going after the inferior player.....
I'd trade Ishii for either one if I were the Dodgers.

No, they don't. Yes, the Oriole's pitching staff does not have a lot of "veteran presence" and has its weaknesses. But regardless of what they do, the Orioles have no hope of contending this year, so they should really just focus on learning what they can about their young players and identifying a core for the future.
And, in the longer term....
The Orioles have outstanding pitching prospects on the roster and in the minors, including Ainsworth, Riley, John Maine, Adam Loewen, and John Stephens, as a start. On the other hand, they have almost NO hitting prospects.
Trading Gibbons addresses a short-term problem by taking away part of their long-term solution. It's a stupid, short-sighted move that they ought to avoid.
