We are now in September.
The MLB regular season has just one month remaining and then it's off to the playoffs. The Baltimore Orioles currently hold a 9.5-game lead in the AL East and are looking to surpass the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim for the best record in baseball.
With the AL East all but locked up, O's fans are anxiously awaiting the home team's second playoff appearance in the last three seasons. Until that point, though, it's about chasing down the top record in baseball and not letting their division rivals anywhere near the top of the division.
So, let's take an early peek at which players the Orioles could target come the offseason. Keep in mind that this is all speculation and not backed by any substantial rumors.
