Imagine how frustrated the front office is right now, believing it had a deal in place for Jon Garland, before the White Sox decided that it would be swell if the Orioles threw in Erik Bedard. Pass. And believing it had an agreement to swap Jorge Julio for Kris Benson before the Mets decided, hey, why not include Adam Loewen, too? Pass. Trust me, folks, the Orioles are extremely active in trade talks, more so than past years, according to some industry types, but they're not eager to be fleeced.
