    And so goes another piece of the Kearns/Lopez trade of 2006...

    I love this trade by the Orioles. A solid shortstop in return for a 28 year old reliever who hasn't pitched in the major leagues in three years and a 24 year old starter who spent last year in High-A. Hardy is an above average defender at SS and a .700+ OPS bat with the potential to be more. The move from Target Field to Camden Yards should benefit him. I was really hoping the Reds would acquire him.
    I miss Adam Dunn.

    Another pair of relievers for some quality talent. I swear, we could be getting Reyes for Ondrusek and Joseph if Walt would just pick up the phone.

    I love what the O's have done this offseason. They needed some decent talent to add to their youngsters and few veterans and they should be a better team next year with Reynolds and Hardy. Hope they can find a first baseman soon because that's their last big piece of the puzzle.

    Hardy is arb-eligble and made $5.1M last year. This was not a "baseball move" for the Twins. It was two relievers and five million bucks.

    Hardy likely wasn't ever an option for the Reds as well given what we're hearing about being up against it budget-wise.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    Looks like Hardy settled for $5.85MM
