I know some of you are frustrated that the Orioles aren’t appearing in rumors. President of baseball operations Andy MacPhail is very, very close to the vest and keep in mind it’s still early. The majority of moves won’t happen until after the Winter Meetings, which are Dec. 6-9 in Orlando. The O’s are calling agents and getting in touch with players, according to manager Buck Showalter, Andy’s been working the phones ever since the FA period started last weekend. So, now we wait for the Hot Stove to heat up a little bit.
In the meantime I’ve been awful at posting pictures this season like I wanted to, so here are a few from the ALCS games in Texas. Enjoy.
