Okay, we were wrong. In this week’s edition of our podcast, Birds On The Wire, we discussed the MLB Winter Meetings and the Orioles roll in trades. We decided that it might be too early for the Birds to make some moves.
Today the Baltimore Orioles announced they would be sending some cash and Chris Ray to the Texas Rangers for starting pitcher Kevin Millwood. Though the deal is not yet official, it could be announced as early as this evening.
Great move for the O’s in my opinion. Millwood is a reliable innings eater at 34 years old and went 13-10with a 3.67 ERA last season. Chris Ray has been injury prone and incredibly inconsistent.
Another great move by Andy MacPhail. Keep ’em coming.
