A lot of big teams have been looking for new general managers this off-season, so it is understandable if the Baltimore Orioles’ search has flown a bit under the radar. But that hasn’t stopped the O’s from aiming high.
According to Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com, the Orioles have requested permission to interview Andrew Friedman.
OK, OK…stop laughing. Yes, yes. We know. Friedman could just about have any job in Major League Baseball, so there is a better chance of the Rays signing Prince Fielder, than there is of Friedman leaving for the O’s.
But let’s be fair. The Orioles wouldn’t be doing their job if they didn’t at least call. Even UCF sends letters to the nation’s best high school football players.

Short piece in USA Today yesterday mentioned the infielder moves that they believe will happen this offseason. The bad news is that they predict the Dodgers won't get Albert Pujols (who will return to St. Louis) nor Prince Fielder (who will end up with the Cubs). The worse news is that according to their chart, we'll end up swapping out Jamey "Admiral Ackbar"...

Wilson, Mark Buehrle, Roy Oswalt, Edwin Jackson and Hiroki Kuroda topped the list of free-agent starters, ...
Even in a class that includes Albert Pujols and Prince Fielder, C.J. Wilson may be the most intriguing free agent of all, simply because of how much his position and circumstance can boost his market value.
The focus remains pitching, but would the Rangers make a run at Albert Pujols or Prince Fielder?
