American League East

November 30, 1990|By Peter Schmuck


Wish list: The Orioles spent October trying to get a head start on a major trade, but their search continues for a run-producing outfielder, a left-handed starter and a left-handed reliever.

Trade bait: There is a surplus of right-handed starting pitching, and it will increase if the club succeeds in signing left-hander Matt Young. The Orioles also figure to shop one or more of their young outfielders and could be talked out of third baseman Craig Worthington for a quality run-producer.

Rumor mill: The Orioles could make a play for Cleveland outfielder Cory Snyder -- who has expressed a desire to play in Baltimore -- or try to strike a deal with the California Angels, who are trying to move Dante Bichette and Devon White.

If Christmas comes early: Boston Red Sox GM Lou Gorman will call the Orioles back and tell them that Mike Greenwell is available -- and affordable.
