Orioles - Acquired Pie
Baltimore Orioles - Acquired OF Felix Pie from the Chicago Cubs for P Garrett Olson and P Henry Williamson.
And so the saga ends. After years of rumors linking Pie with every player the Cubs were interested in trading for, he gets cashed in for Garrett Olson, whose mediocre fastball as gotten clubbed in the majors when it’s anywhere near home plate.
The Cubs shouldn’t really get too much blame for not playing Pie. He hasn’t hit well at all when he’s played and he’s showed little forward progress. Where they take blame is waiting for the league to think him a huge disappointment instead of trading him when there were some teams that believed otherwise. Olson will almost certainly be in the minors at the start of the season, though I guess they’ll make a show of giving him a shot in spring training.
For the Orioles, while Pie’s not likely to end up a good player, there’s still a chance and the team is in a position to hold open auditions, whereas the Cubs aren’t. In an ideal world, the O’s would be looking to trade Huff seriously now, but with a number of quality players still available in the market at below-usual prices, they probably couldn’t get much for Huff.
