Don't look now, but it looks like the Orioles actually made a lopsided trade... in their favor!
I've liked Kris Benson for years. I won't remind anyone that he had his lowest strikeout rate of his career last year, which is often a sign that ineffectiveness will reign. But I'm hopeful. A rotation of Benson, Lopez, Bedard, Cabrera, and Chen isn't too bad. They still need a #1, but I'd take almost any of them as my #2.
Unfortunately, it looks pretty clear that Toronto has passed Baltimore by with their aggressive off-season. But I like this move. We shall see.
