Andy MacPhail for President!

The rumors are true; the Orioles today acquired P Rich Hill from the Cubs for the infamous Player To Be Named Later. The player will depend on how well Hill pitches this year. Hill was out of options so the Cubs had to move him on the cheap to make room on their 40-man roster. This is  yet another low-risk, high-return move by MacPhail who continues to make all the right moves (except for the Bradford for Cash deal last year to the Rays). Anyways, a 1-2-3 of Guthrie, Uehara, and Hill really doesn’t sound that bad to me…here’s a link to the story.

  1. The fact is MacPhail is turning the Baltimore Orioles into Chicago Cubs East with Pie, Cherry (I think), and now Hill. And prior (no pun intended) to that, you had Patterson over there.

    Hill, when good, is really good. When not doing well, that’s another story. When are we getting Brian Roberts???

  2. You are correct that we have a ‘special’ relationship with the Cubs. Moore and Rocky Cherry came over from Chicago in the Trachsel deal; but Cherry is now with the Mets. The funny thing is that last year the Cubs wouldn’t deal Pie or Hill to us in a package that included Roberts and now we have them both for next to nothing! Roberts will be extended by the O’s for 4 years once O. Hud signs….Sorry!
