The Baltimore Orioles have had a hard time -- at a glance -- landing an impact bat on both the free agent and trade market.
Spring training is just around the corner for the Birds, and as the weeks go by, fans are wondering:
"When will we finally get a middle-of-the-order guy?"
"What is this team doing? Why have we not gotten anyone yet?"
With Mark Reynolds and his power now in Cleveland, who can fill his spot with the Baltimore Orioles?
An intriguing option for the Orioles to bolster the middle of their lineup perhaps would be Michael Morse, who is currently signed with the Washington Nationals.
Morse, 30, is a 6-foot-5, 230-pound man whose looks resemble an NFL or college tight end than your conventional baseball player.

In an effort to avoid arbitration, the Orioles sign Nolan Reimold to a one-year contract.
Although Michael Bourn is one of the top free agents available this winter, he remains unsigned. The problem lies in the fact that the Atlanta Braves made him a qualifying offer before he hit free agency. Any team who chooses to sign him would have to compensate the Braves with draft picks. That is part of why the Baltimore Orioles have no interest.
The other reason, according...
It was reported yesterday that the Baltimore Orioles made a run at Arizona Diamondbacks outfielder Justin Upton in an effort to add the
impact bat they’ve been seeking throughout the offseason. Talks appear to have
fallen through, and the Orioles have once again turned their attention to
