To anyone who thought that the Orioles overpaid for the services of Vlad Guerrero this season, Jeff Flecter of AOL Fanhouse debunked that theory in a tweet he posted on Monday.

Flecter reports that the Texas Rangers made Vlad Guerrero a condition offer worth $8 million, if they would have traded Michael Young. The report explains why Baltimore bumped their offer from $4 million to $8 million to finalize the deal.

Though it’s just batting practice, Vlad reportedly put on a show yesterday in Sarasota. Hopefully he’ll be bringing that show with him to Camden Yards in 2011.
