The question I'm getting most now concerns the Orioles' search for a veteran starter and I'll tell you honestly that I have no idea where that is going. That's clearly been a backburner issue. I know that Andy MacPhail has called plenty of teams to see if they are willing to trade a starter, but I don't have any names for you. As for the free agent market, the Orioles aren't in on Cliff Lee and I've heard nothing about interest in Carl Pavano either. Pavano seems pretty far down the road with other clubs. After them, I can't really find a veteran starter that you can plug into the Opening Day rotation and be comfortable that you have an upgrade over what you had in Kevin Millwood. Doug Davis, Dave Bush and Jeremy Bonderman in the A.L. East? No thanks. I know there is plenty of fan support for signing a pitcher coming off an injury (Jeff Francis, Brandon Webb, Chris Young, Ben Sheets, Rich Harden, Justin Duchscherer to name a few) to a low-risk, incentive-laden deal and I'd have no problem with that. But that isn't an easy sell for the Orioles. Most of those guys want to go somewhere on a one-year deal, prove they are healthy, have a good season and then hit the free agent market after the 2011 season and look for a long-term deal. In other words, they traditionally don't land in hitter's parks and on teams that play the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox nearly 20 times a year.
