One more thing I'm thankful for this holiday season. Radhames Liz is going to get a chance to prove himself with another organization. Liz was plucked off waivers by the San Diego Padres this afternoon. I don't know if he'll be getting a break in the standings next season, but at least the weather will be better.
The Orioles now have a space open in the 40-man roster, which I suppose could mean somebody is headed this way, or could just mean they are clearing some room in case they take somebody in the Rule 5 draft.
The O's also announced that left-hander Chris Waters has cleared waivers and been outrighted to the Triple-A roster, so there's still a chance he'll turn up on the Orioles roster at some point in the future.
