What are Westburg, and Henderson doing at Bowie?
I'm thinking the total salary is somewhere around $145M +/- (haven't really looked at possible arb numbers).
That can be a .500 or better team.
Do I think the Orioles are signing 6 FA's? No... but I do think it's time to go out and spend beyond signings on the fringe of the roster.
