Ex-Twin Turned Oriole
Posted 04 March 2014 - 01:30 PM
I want to create a list of the past 2-3 years, with the expectation that my fellow posters contribute ones I miss. Should be fun and won't be long before we have a full 25 man roster!

Scott Erickson in JR's best trade ever!!!
I took a look at the details of that trade. Kimera Bartee was added to it, late in the 1995 season. Apparently the Twins then left Bartee off their 40-man. Guess who took him in the Rule 5 draft that winter? Those same Orioles. And then what did Baltimore do with him? They exposed him to waivers that next spring and the Tigers took him.
Stay classy, Baltimore.
That's a long time ago. But these recent roster moves almost makes it sound like there is bad blood between the franchises for some reason.

And they claimed Willingham at the deadline last year.
Yep. Which is why I was hopeful that the Twins might have been/might still be able to work out a deal to unlock an infielder or pitching prospect from the O's. Notwithstanding the signing of Cruz, the O's still desperately need a RH DH bat.
