It still feels like the MLB season has just started, but in truth we're coming to the point at which trade rumors begin flying over the web as players fly to new cities to call "home."
The Baltimore Orioles have been hovering just above .500 for the last few weeks, and the team can't seem to string together a good winning stretch.
When teams struggle to put winning streaks together, the problem is usually the pitching rotation, and the Orioles are no exception to that rule.
If the O's want to compete this season, they may need to acquire a starting pitcher (or two) from outside the organization with the hope that said pitcher(s) can provide the stability the team so desperately needs.
It's a bit too early for rumors to mean much, but it's always fun to take a look at them anyway while trying to piece together ones that make sense for the teams involved.
