We are days away from baseball’s annual winter meetings – they begin in earnest Monday, though most of us will be getting to Nashville on Sunday.
I expect the Orioles to come away from there with a player or two.
That’s what they did...

Today is the start of the winter meetings in Nashville and you know what that means O’s fans?

By this time next week, Ed Encina and I will be knee-deep in Winter Meetings muck, trying to decipher what’s actually going on in the lobbies, bars and meeting rooms in Nashville.

It may be a good thing the Orioles only face Billy Butler a handful of games each season.
