Orioles Trade Scenarios: Potential Moves for Baltimore to Make at Deadline

The surprising, AL East first-place Baltimore Orioles (31-24) have been one of the more exciting teams around the league so far this season as we have seen young stars emerge to show us a bit of the Birds' future.

However, if they want to stay atop the tough American League East, they need to make an addition or two to their roster.

It’s no surprise that the Orioles have struggled over the last 14 seasons, and one of their major problems over that dreadful stretch has been their starting rotation. They always seem to have high hopes and expectations entering the season, and fans are always filled with disappointment as notable pitchers fail to help the Orioles win.

For example, Sidney Ponson, Kevin Millwood and Kris Benson all come to mind when thinking about past veteran starters who were supposed to lead the Orioles to winning seasons.

So far this year, the Birds’ offense and bullpen have been their driving force, and as long as they continue to perform well, they will stay afloat; however, if they want to have a shot at the division this year, they need to pick up an experienced starter and improve their defense immensely.
