Orioles: Meetings getting underway

The Winter Meetings officially start tomorrow, but you'll hear some Orioles news late this afternoon after the O's contingent settles into its temporary headquarters at the Anatole Hotel in Dallas.

General manager Dan Duquette will announce some more front office additions and changes, presumably including the appointment of Lee Thomas as one of his special assistants.

Dan Connolly and I will be there to bring you interviews with the new additions and will be in Dallas throughout the meetings to keep you updated on Orioles Insider and Twitter. Should be fun.

For you, not us.

Pete i truly don't know what your work load really is but the last couple of months since the oriole season ended doesn't seem to have burden you to much.

I don't see how the Orioles can make any significant trades to help their ball club when they consider every player they have who is tradeable an untouchable. Other teams are not interested in busts like Bergensen, Tillman, Bell and Snyder. The only thing the Orioles can get for those players is perhaps a bat boy. Besides teams don't have to trade with the Orioles because they can get their best prospects off the waiver wire or in the Rule 5 draft.

Pete, reporting: Baltimore seems to be waiting for domino effect.

This seems to say that once again the O's will just watch the Big Boys get the best of the best and we'll just sign whatever minor leaguers are left for us to put on our major league team (what a joke it is to call the O's a major league team).

Looks like we, Orioles fans, have another 10-15 years of losing seasons to look forward to. How much longer before there is No One coming to the games and Angelos is forced to seel the team to someone who takes our treasure and moves them away?

Another new GM, same damn B.S

About Peter Schmuck
Peter Schmuck wants you to know that, contrary to popular belief, he is more than just a bon vivant, raconteur and collector of blousy flowered shirts. He is a semi-respected journalist who has covered virtually every sport -- except luge, of course – and tackled issues that transcend the mere games people play. If that isn’t enough to qualify him to provide witty, wide-ranging commentary on the sports world ... and the rest of the world, for that matter ... he is an avid reader of history, biography and the classics, as well as a charming blowhard who pops off on both sports and politics on WBAL Radio. That means you can expect a little of everything in The Schmuck Stops Here, but the major focus will be keeping you up to the minute on Baltimore’s major sports teams and themes, whether it’s throwing up the Orioles lineup the minute it’s announced or updating you on the latest sprained ankle in Owings Mills. Oh, and by the way, that’s Mr. Schmuck to you.
