Every offseason, each one of the 30 MLB teams loses players to trades and free agency, and gains fresh faces.
Teams enter the winter with a shopping list; a plan. Whether these teams are able to acquire the players they want is an entirely different matter.
The Baltimore Orioles have a plan for the 2012 offseason, although GM Dan Duquette (pictured; right) had yet to lay it out for the media to grab a hold of.
More than likely, the team plans on attacking this offseason just like the last one: build from within, add quality depth, and continue to grow the young players.
However, there are undoubtedly some free agents the O's would love to have for the right price. Taking a look at the best possible fits for the Orioles, there are some reasonable and unreasonable expectations.
The following list includes the players the Orioles would love to have, but aren't necessarily going to get. Some of these guys are direct targets of the team, while others are players the O's would sign should the player come to the team on the team's terms.
Regardless, all of these players would be welcomed additions to the O's roster.
