Looking to acquire a middle of the rotation starter. (Got it with Garrett Richards!)
Looking to acquire defensive help at the corners. (Partially got it with Casey Kotchman. Love Jose Iglesias! At 2B/SS)
Looking to acquire outfield help. (Succeded tremendously here getting Nava, Bourjous!, and Grichuk)
Willing to trade if the right package arises. (A salary dump of Reynolds came up and he too has been traded.)
The orioles are more than likely done making moves here.
Players from my Major League team who are acquirable
Matt Lindstrom is off the list and has been traded to the Boston Red Sox.
Jim Johnson and Nick Markakis are off the list and have been traded to the Angels.
Jim Thome is off the list and has been traded to the Cleveland Indians.
Mark Reynolds is off the list and has been traded to the Oakland Athletics.
And with that...
I have gutted most of my unnecessary pieces.
Brought in 12 players all 29 years old or younger for my farm system who are making the league minium. Including prospects who can help in the future. And young pieces who will be added to the 25 man roster and can help now.
Trading away 5 players nowhere near 2012 season impacting WAR numbers for my Orioles was something I had to do. Maybe they produce elsewhere. These O's can't beat the really good teams.
Made 4 impactful moves all while keeping within the limits of the 6 million dollar cap I was given to play around with. Getting younger is a rebuild well done in my opinion.
Pretty much done with this deadline. Would need to be wowed to make another move. May ask for more CAP if the situation arises but besides that... I'm going to give this a rest
Still feel free to offer suggestions. I am always willing to listen. This was a fun game idea. I really enjoyed adding young pieces.
Jake Arrieta is off the list and has been traded to the New York Mets
