MacPhail: Angelos hasn’t nixed a trade

From the Sun

Orioles owner Peter Angelos didn’t veto a proposed trade that would have sent ace pitcher Erik Bedard to the Seattle Mariners for a package headed by young outfielder Adam Jones, team president Andy MacPhail said today.

Asked if Angelos was responsible for nixing a deal, MacPhail responded, “No.” He wouldn’t elaborate further or provide details on why the talks appear to have hit a snag.

I tend to believe MacPhail. He really doesn’t like talking to the press apparently. Over the past few days, I’ve grown to realize that his operating method is not a quick moving style but rather a deliberate, calucated though frustrating slowpaced method. That said, I’d rather have him hold out and get the right deal done slowly rather than make a quick trade that’s not a good one.

We’ve had to ‘done deal’ trades that haven’t happened yet but still could.
