"An insider over at the Orioles Hangout message board says the Orioles will trade a starting pitcher soon. Could be Erik Bedard, Rodrigo Lopez, or Hayden Penn. Speculation is that the Orioles would love to swap a starter for a power hitter now that they've added Kris Benson. I know some Oriole fans are clamoring for Adam Dunn, and at the very least we know the Reds will be more open to trading with O'Brien gone.
"Speaking of Adam Dunn, a source tells me that the Reds have been talking to the Dodgers about him. Derek Lowe or Brad Penny may be involved. He also tells me that Boston could send Brandon Moss to Cincy along with Matt Clement. It would be part of a three-way deal where Austin Kearns and Moss land in Cleveland. I think Coco Crisp would then end up in Boston. Yeah, I just confused myself, but maybe you can sort that one out.
"Someone told me that a Griffey to the Braves rumor was floating around last week. I'm not sure where it originated, but it would be a nice fit in my opinion. Plus, the Braves would have the ammo to get it done."
