O’s stand pat

So Manny_goes_to_the_Dodgers, the Red Sox gets Jason Bay, and the Pirates get 4 players.

Ken_Griffey_Jr_goes_to_the_White_Sox.

and that was pretty much it. The O’s didn’t do any trades. Andy_MacPhail said that the offers just weren’t there.

“This is my judgment. I might be right and I might be wrong. My judgment is we’ll have a larger field to choose from later on for players that are attractive. I suspect that we should have names that are going to be attractive to other teams.”

All of that means, wait til the offseason for any trades. I think we’ll see a trade or two happen in August. Jay Payton might be swapped for a C prospect. Jamie Walker, Kevin Millar, or Ramon Hernandez could slip through waivers. In order for those trades to happen, somebody on some other team goes down with an injury or some team making a playoff push needs someone for the bench. I wish there could have been a trade today but thats not in the cards. I’m hoping MacPhail laid some groundwork today for the offseason.
