This is the second weekend in a row we have an entire post dedicated to Orioles moves and rumors, which is a good thing if you like movement for the sake of it. And if you're into deckchair-moving and exercises in futility, the Orioles might just be your team. BUT! If/when one or several of these moves pay off, let's not act like it was a brilliant vision by the front office, but instead recognize just how bad that FO would have to be if none of these pay off (/trollface).

Here's the latest out of the O's camp:

  • Thoughts on Kim - Britt Ghiroli
    "A league source confirmed that the Orioles had signed Kim without going through the proper channels mandated by MLB. The Korean Baseball Organization complained, and rightly so, that that the matter must go directly through MLB and were angered because they claim they were not informed of the Orioles’ talks with Kim until he signed. So, they do have grounds to be upset."
  • 40-man maneuvering - Roch Kubatko
    "You know there have been a lot of changes when third baseman Josh Bell enters the debate over which player will be removed to make room for the next addition. Wasn't he considered one of the organization's top prospects following the George Sherrill trade? Now he's on the bubble."
