Os sign Marrero, Balfour note

The Orioles signed first baseman Chris Marrero to a Minor League contract, according to a report by Baseball America on Tuesday afternoon.

A right-handed hitter, he was 2-for-16 in eight games with the Nationals last season and hit .270 at Triple-A Syracuse with 11 home runs and 59 RBIs. He played 31 games for the Nationals in 2011, hitting .248 with 10 RBIs, but missed a large chunk of the following season after suffering a hamstring injury in winter ball.

Also, the Orioles have continued interest in free agent Grant Balfour. They have a two-year deal on the table, but the sticking point remains years. He wants three and the O’s haven’t budged, despite reports.

Wow! Another great Duquette signing.

Start printing those playoff tickets!

The O’s are going to need a bigger bench for all the “Quality” players Dandy Duquette likes to hire to appease the Angelos Group[otherwise known as THE CHEAP ONES] Still think Markaikis should be traded if Angelos would allow it.
