Patience and more patience please

A wise man once said, “All we need is just a little patience.” OK, so maybe that man was Axl Rose and he isn’t necessarily wise, but he does have a point. Besides, have we not learned anything from Tim Tebow? Let’s start thinking positively people!

With the Winter Meetings come and gone, I can imagine the Orioles meetings went something like the beginning of the movie Major League, “I haven’t heard of half these guys and the ones I do know are way past their prime. Most of these guys never had a prime.”

The Orioles declined to offer a contract to slugger Luke Scott, who was going into his option year. He’s probably not gone for good though—if he comes down in price, he’s likely to be back.

It’s true, the big name the Orioles acquired at the Winter Meetings was left handed pitcher Dana Eveland. Eveland is a 28-year-old pitcher with a career 5.52 ERA (stop me if you’ve heard this before) to go along with his career record of 19-24. His one full year as a starter came in 2008 while with the Oakland Athletics where he finished up 9-9 with a 4.34 ERA. Last year with the Los Angeles Dodgers, Eveland made only five starts and went 3-2 with a 3.03 ERA. Maybe there’s something there, but…

For the Orioles, signing a big name like Albert Pujols or Prince Fielder isn’t going to help any. If anything it’ll give the O’s fans a false sense of hope, kind of like bringing in Vladimir Guerrero. Sure, right now the Los Angeles Angels have one of the best first basemen to ever play the game, but Pujols will be 32 in January and they signed him for the next 10 years. I give him four good years before they are stuck with his declining skills and ridiculous salary for the last six years. Have fun LA!

Prince Fielder is a big hitting first baseman, but he will likely sign a huge contract of at least $20 million per year—which will pay for a lot of all-you-can-eat buffets for the portly first baseman. Given he’s a vegan, I’m concerned he’s 275 pounds. Yes he’s only 27, but his weight is a serious concern.

Signing a Pujols or Fielder would suck up the little money Dan Duquette is allotted to spend on free agents, and one area where the Orioles seriously need help is pitching. Last year they finished dead last in ERA, which is something neither Pujols nor Fielder can help with.

The Orioles would not have found a playoff berth with the material available at this year’s Winter Meetings, and we need to accept that.

Duquette is doing what he can, and Axl had it right. We do need just a little patience because this team is a bit screwed up right now and Duquette needs to sort it all out. Which he will. Yes, it’s been forever since there has been a .500 team at Camden Yards, but Duquette will take some more advice from Axl and will “…take it slow, and it’ll work itself out fine.” Let’s give him the time he needs.
