This morning, the Orioles traded pitcher Jeremy Guthrie to the Colorado Rockies. Guthrie was engaged in arbitration hearings with the club, where he had reportedly submitted a salary number of over $10 million. According to the same report, the O’s submitted a number of 7.25 million; rather than try to bridge the gap, they shipped the veteran right-hander to Colorado.
This afternoon, I asked people's feelings on the Jeremy Guthrie trade on Twitter, and from what I got, people hate it. I'm a bit confused why this trade happened now (despite Guthrie's arbitration hearing) and what the team got in return.

Former Met Endy Chavez turns 34 today. I was told that Endy at one time made a catch that some call the best catch in post season history. Of course I would agree since I was at the game. The roar of that
Right-hander Jeremy Guthrie has been the cornerstone of the Orioles' starting rotation for the past few years, which is probably not saying a whole lot, but you still have to give him credit for going out there and taking one -- or 17, in the case of 2011 -- for the team. He was a good soldier and he is a pretty good pitcher, but he's in a better place now.
