Wrapping up the Guthrie trade
Lots of links yesterday, so here’s a quick recap in case you missed anything…
*The full story on the Orioles trade of Jeremy Guthrie to Colorado, in exchange for pitchers Jason Hammel and Matt Lindstrom, can be found here.
*Guthrie took the time to do a farewell phone interview with me and made sure to single out the fans and city of Baltimore. You can find those quotes here. More quotes from executive vice president of baseball operations Dan Duquette, along with Rockies GM Dan O’Dowd, can be found here.
*I got a lot of questions about what to think of the trade from an Orioles’ standpoint and, while I don’t think they got much better, I also don’t think they got much worse. It was more of a lateral move, and I went into more detail explaining some of the reasoning for it here.
