Derrek Lee, 2011 Topps Chrome #148
If you should find yourself feeling antsy over the Orioles' quiet offseason to date, just remember: it's better to stand pat than to make moves just for the sake of cosmetic improvement. Otherwise, you might end up paying Derrek Lee $7.25 million to wheeze out a .246/.302/.404 batting line with 41 RBI for a 93-loss team, only to flip him at the trade deadline for a non-prospect. If you're not convinced, look upon the free agents that CSN Baltimore's Rich Dubroff suggests as fits for the Birds and despair.
I can remember playing with baseball cards as a toddler, but I actually started collecting them when I was ten. Now I'm an adult looking for an outlet to talk about my hobby without receiving blank stares in return. You can contact me thusly.
