The winter meetings are coming up, and while it is a time when some free agents find new homes, it is mainly an opportunity for GMs to talk with each other about trades.
At last year's meetings, many big trades occurred, with Adrian Gonzalez, Shaun Marcum and Jason Bartlett switching teams. Andy MacPhail managed to bring home an entirely new left side of the Orioles infield with deals for Mark Reynolds and J.J. Hardy.
This year's market could be just as fruitful for the Orioles. Many names have surfaced as being available, including what seems to be most of the pitching staff that Theo Epstein inherited on the Cubs. The Orioles' main targets will likely be starting pitching and third base, but Dan Duquette may also be looking for an extra outfielder as well.
Here are five players the Orioles should look to trade for at this year's winter meetings in Dallas.
