Orioles Sign Danys Baez For $19 Million

Three years, $19 million.

Again, trade the relievers. Even in this ridiculous market, I can't see how Baez is worth half this much. He's coming off a bad year, and he hasn't had good ratios since 2003. I can't figure this one out - it can't be closer mystique, since Baez blew nine of 16 save opportunities with the Dodgers last year. It can't be that Baez is good, because he isn't. The best that I can figure is that this is a really weird market, and the Orioles are a really poorly run team.
