There isn't much happening here, but if you're interested in some schadenfreude, I suggest you check out this link.

Orioles owner Peter Angelos didn't veto a proposed trade that would have sent ace pitcher Erik Bedard to the Seattle Mariners for a package headed by young outfielder Adam Jones, team president Andy MacPhail said today.

Asked if Angelos was responsible for nixing a deal, MacPhail responded, "No." He wouldn't elaborate further or provide details on why the talks appear to have hit a snag.

Riiiight. Adam Jones and Chris Tillman would be tremendous acquisitions for the Orioles. One would think that a decade worth of losing seasons and the continued erosion of his fanbase might convince Angelos that he should stay out of these types of decisions, but apparently not.
