You probably don’t want to read about the Orioles today. I can’t say that I blame ya. I’m gonna give you some options anyway though, darn it.
Hader was traded to Houston for Bud Norris back in 2013.
Rosenthal stirs the pot again. Gasp. Camden Chat’s Mark Brown has some thoughts on blaming Dan Duquette for a season flying off the rails.
I feel like I should mention this as well:
Take this with a grain of salt with one source and no other conformation, but do not be shocked if Duquette was terminated after the draft.

Even if you put any stock in the above rumor, Duq will at least be around through the draft, which starts today. Jon Meoli has plenty of quotes from DD on what O’s fans should expect.
The O’s hoped to catch lightning in a bottle with Edwin Jackson. They got a turd in a jar.
Baltimore Sports and Life’s Chris Stoner gives about as clear-eyed an assessment on where the O’s are now as you’re likely to find anywhere.
