The warehouse offices are officially closed today for Christmas Day, one of the only truly inactive days of the hot stove season.
The Orioles still have a roster spot available on the 40-man. I don't expect it to be filled today, unless Santa Claus has some Independent League experience.
So instead, we will take the opportunity to thank you -- the readers -- for following us throughout the year, from the January rumors to spring training throughout a long regular season and, this year, through the postseason.
So on behalf of our team -- myself, Dan Connolly and Peter Schmuck -- we wish you all happy holidays and a fruitful 2013.
Oh, and spring training is just seven weeks away.Copyright © 2014, The Baltimore Sun
