Traded

The O's just traded Hayden Penn to the Marlins for one time prospect and backup shortstop Robby Andino. They basically swapped fading prospects, but at least the O's got something. Andino will be the utility man, Chris Gomez was released, and Jolbert Cabrera will be sent to AAA.

Now the O's have to decide who to cut between Adam Eaton and Brian Bass, or potentially Danys Baez. I'm hoping Eaton, but it doesn't really matter all that much to me. Now we get to wait and watch Penn become the next John Maine.

My Dad said me a text about this... sad sad day on my part... who's going to be my favorite player now?? Koji??

I just just become a Seattle fan... isn't that where Olson ended up??

It's true - our luck says that Penn will be essentially Maine by the end of this season. Add this one to your similar players list.

It could be worse....

He could become the next Curt Schilling.
