Originally written on Oriole Post  |  Last updated 11/2/14
With about five to six weeks before pitchers and catchers report to the various camps of the 30 MLB franchises in both Florida and Arizona, most teams are into the home stretch of the winter. As we as fans know, the Orioles at glance have not done much with retooling  their roster. Now, we are still in early January and there's more to be done by Dan Duquette along with the front office; however, the consensus among most fans is that the franchise doesn't want to spend money. Now, the Orioles will dole out a bunch of money to players due to raises, arbitration and contract stipulations as the Baltimore Sun's Peter Schmuck noted in article; therefore, the team may stand pat with their starting pitching (res. Chris Tillman and the growth of Dylan Bundy and Kevin Gausman) and the impressive core of everyday guys. However, it seems that the Orioles have to do more. One would think after an impressive and unexpected playoff run, they would do a lot more. I've been a blogger for a long time covering this team, but I have had season tickets of some form since 2003. For the first time in a very, very long time I'm truly anticipating the start of 2013 season; however, as a paying customer I'd like to see more happen. I'd like to see the team act in a more bold fashion, but not be reckless and give away draft picks in order to get free agents. As I've said before, I have full confidence in Duquette and the front office to put the best Oriole team possible on the field. The team may still need a bat, and perhaps another arm (however, it may not be as important now). How do you all feel about the off-season so far? Do you think Baltimore has done enough -- or does more need to happen?
