Jeff Zrebiec of the Sun reported on Tuesday that the Orioles have renewed talks with first baseman Derrek Lee after their discussions with Adam LaRoche seemed to have stalled.

It’s unclear whether that is because LaRoche is reportedly seeking a three-year deal while the Orioles would prefer not giving him three guaranteed years, or LaRoche simply has better, more lucrative offers, and doesn’t want to play in Baltimore.

Either way, the renewed talks this week with Lee’s agent, Casey Lee, would appear to indicate that the Orioles aren’t as confident as they once were in signing LaRoche.

Would you like to see the O’s get back in the mix for LaRoche or go after Lee?
