O’s Interested In Delmon Young, Jack Cust, Mark Reynolds

Billy McMillon is available.

The Orioles have some interest in adding both Delmon Young and Jack Cust on minor league deals, according to Roch Kubatko of MASNsports.com. Each player will be at the Orioles’ minicamp tomorrow to see if there’s a potential fit on a non-roster deal, according to Kubatko. Baltimore also has some interest in a reunion with Mark Reynolds, though nothing is hot on that front for now, according to Kubatko (All links to Twitter).

Too interested.

What's Larry Sheets up to these days? Ken Gerhart? Pete Stanicek? Al Flippin' Pardo????
   4. jmurph Posted: January 13, 2014 at 03:45 PM (#4637985)
O's interested in competing, but not so much so that it would require spending more money on better baseball players.
   5. Barry`s_Lazy_Boy Posted: January 13, 2014 at 03:47 PM (#4637988)
Jeremy Giambi would listen if they called.
   6. Crispix reaches boiling point with lackluster play Posted: January 13, 2014 at 03:47 PM (#4637989)
O's Interested in Calvin Pickering, Marcus Giles, Larry Bigbie
   7. Shooty Is Disappointed With His Midstream Urine Posted: January 13, 2014 at 03:50 PM (#4637992)
Is Sam Horn still alive?
   8. Davo's Favorite Tacos Are Moose Tacos Posted: January 13, 2014 at 03:55 PM (#4637995)
Surely Mike Jacobs, Dan Johnson or Mike Hessman would pick up the phone if Baltimore called.
   9. Curse of the Andino Posted: January 13, 2014 at 03:59 PM (#4637996)
O's interested in Randy Milligan, Mickey Tettleton and Dwight Evans.

That said, there really ain't that much out there (please, not Delmon Young.)
   10. JJ1986 Posted: January 13, 2014 at 04:02 PM (#4638001)
O's interested in Julio Borbon, Chih–Hsien Chiang, Nolan Reimold.
   11. Nasty Nate Posted: January 13, 2014 at 04:02 PM (#4638002)
Maybe I'm missing some backlash out there, but it seems like the Orioles have somehow escaped being called out for their low payroll ways. Even inefficiently attained, an extra $20-30 million in talent would have been huge for them the past 2 years, and probably for 2014.
   12. RoyalsRetro (AG#1F) Posted: January 13, 2014 at 04:05 PM (#4638004)
O's interested in Shelley Duncan, Chris Shelton, Josh Fields.

Am I playing this game correctly?
   13. AROM Posted: January 13, 2014 at 04:05 PM (#4638007)
O's interested in Randy Milligan, Mickey Tettleton and Dwight Evans.


The last one would be nice, if only to get him back on the HOF ballot in 6 years.
   14. AROM Posted: January 13, 2014 at 04:07 PM (#4638010)
Boog Powell is already at the ballpark. Just sign him up.
   15. RoyalsRetro (AG#1F) Posted: January 13, 2014 at 04:08 PM (#4638012)
Pete Stanicek?


Pete Stanicek at the Disco!
   16. zonk Posted: January 13, 2014 at 04:09 PM (#4638013)
This is fun!

O's interested in Craig Monroe, Marcus Thames, Julio Zuleta
   17. Squash Posted: January 13, 2014 at 04:10 PM (#4638014)
Is this is repost from 2007?
   18. EddieA Posted: January 13, 2014 at 04:12 PM (#4638015)
O's interested in Rafael Palmeiro and Barry Bonds.
   19. Jose Molina wants a nickname like "A-Rod" Posted: January 13, 2014 at 04:16 PM (#4638021)
O's considering adding Josh Phelps and Roberto Pentaigne.
   20. Fernigal McGunnigle has become a merry hat Posted: January 13, 2014 at 04:16 PM (#4638023)
Surely Mike Jacobs, Dan Johnson or Mike Hessman would pick up the phone if Baltimore called.

Those three have combined for 947 professional home runs -- Hessman 409, Johnson 277, Jacobs 261. Better even than Cust (330), and Reynolds (270), and Young (162).
   21. Swedish Chef Posted: January 13, 2014 at 04:22 PM (#4638027)
I didn't think this thread was from 2014 when I saw it in the sidebar.

What are they-bloggers or something?

Now I could see the O's being interested in exhuming Paul Blair-Angelos seems like a Pro Undead man to me

O's interested in Logan Morrison, Dustin Ackley, Justin Smoak.

Failing that Jason Bay, Mike Morse, Endy Chavez, and Casper Wells might be enticed with the right shiny offer.

This seemed funny to me when I started. Now, as a Mariners fan, I just want to sit down and cry.

Pretty sure I have an old Baseball America copy with Dressendorfer and Van Poppel and a third guy on the cover - Scott Chiamparino maybe?

Bingo - well, actually combine all 3 posts -- it was 4 guys... Dave Zancanaro was the 4th -- the cover was "Four Aces" -- as the A's had 4 first round picks that year (1990). IIRC, they all fell on the board due to signability issues.
   63. RoyalsRetro (AG#1F) Posted: January 14, 2014 at 10:03 AM (#4638486)
I think that cover is where the phrase TINSTAAPP came from.

I'm so sick of the Orioles being interested in Chris Truby and Albert Belle.
   67. escabeche Posted: January 14, 2014 at 10:22 AM (#4638517)
For an O's fan, the painful thing about this thread is how many of the players jokingly referred to actually WERE considered or even signed by the Orioles at some point.
   68. It's a shame about Athletic Supporter Posted: January 14, 2014 at 11:08 AM (#4638592)

   70. John Northey Posted: January 14, 2014 at 09:57 PM (#4639167)
Sign Roger Clemens and Barry Bonds. That would make for a very entertaining season no matter the result and keep those 2 from being on the HOF ballot for years thus saving us from a lot of headaches at HOF time. Then there would be just McGwire & Sosa left, while Sheffield is on next ballot and Manny coming on two years after that with I-Rod. Hey, it would be a bit of a break at least as I figure Sheffield will be in the sub 10% range with McGwire and Sosa fighting to stay on the ballot.

REAL LIFE UPDATE:

On January 14th, the Orioles signed Delmon Young.

Yesterday, they signed Jack Cust.

And today, do you know who they signed? Why, they signed Matt Laporta, that's who.
   72. Good cripple hitter Posted: February 07, 2014 at 02:00 PM (#4653316)
I hope LaPorta manages to get back into the majors, just so he can inspire another rant like the meltdown that happened when he was on the Indians:

"That can't be a triple! That can't be a triple! It can't be a triple! That's an error on LaPorta! I don't care what anybody says, that's an error on LaPorta! Turning around like this, he's like in my swivel chair here!"

Say what you will about Jack Cust but 500 hits and 105 HR spread over a very mediocre 10 year career netted him about $1M more than I made in a 45 year career selling software to F500 and federal clients.

Good luck Delmon and Jack; milk that cow for all she's worth!
