The best remaining free agent, now that Prince Fielder is off the market, is starting pitcher Edwin Jackson. Coincidentally enough, both players are represented by Super Agent Scott Boras.
Dan Connolly of The Sun reports that the Orioles would consider offering Jackson a four year deal, but indicates that they are long shots to land him. The Red Sox are reportedly the favorites.
Not because he’s getting a better offer, but because he’d take a one-year deal from Boston or a multi-year deal from Baltimore.

Everyone knows the Orioles have to overspend to bring in free agents. But what do you do when that stops working?
It’s going to be a long season.
