Orioles Notes: Prospects, Johnson, Hole-Filling Free Agents

You know it's almost time for a baseball extravaganza when Orioles fans are preemptively talking themselves off of cliffs, lowering expectations, and making a bunch of Charlie Brown *sighing* noises. Let's check in:

  • Free Agent Hole-Fillers, Not Seat Fillers - Baltimore Sun
    "That said, I’m sure the Orioles will sign at least one free agent before the offseason ends – they usually get several, though rarely do they land a big one. And that’s expected to be the case this winter too, a couple hole-fillers but no seat-fillers."
  • Orioles’ top affiliate will have a new manager in 2012 -
    "Johnson, 55, was the manager of Triple-A Pawtucket, the Red Sox top affiliate, from 2005 to 2009 and led the PawSox to a playoff berth in 2008. He first joined the Boston organization as a minor-league manager in 2000 – while new Orioles’ executive vice president Dan Duquette was GM of the Red Sox."
