O's: Garland in play

The Orioles were thought to have some interest in free agent pitcher Jon Garland, and the word floating around today is that they are one of three teams making a serious attempt to sign him. Garland was offered arbitration and is a Type-B free agent, which means the Angels get a sandwich draft pick if he signs elsewhere.

If the Orioles make him a priority, it might be an indication that they have given up on any realistic chance of signing A.J. Burnett, since it seems unlikely they would commit the money to sign both.
