We have less than a week now until the non-waiver trade deadline. As Buck Showalter says about trade talk, "[it's] good for the fans and that's the bottom line. They like it. It keeps them engaged. " OK, so let's get engaged -- and no you don't have to have a few shots at the bar and drop to a knee for that. I'm allowing you to pick one guy who is rumored to be on the trade block and add him to the Orioles' 25-man roster. You don't even have to tell me who you are giving up to get him (though that makes it more interesting.

Desperate times apparently call for harsh measures inside the Pittsburgh Steelers' locker room, a once-vibrant place where fun and games not involving football have now been outlawed. With his team winless through four games and in last place in the AFC North, Steelers coach Mike Tomlin took the unusual step of banning pool, table tennis and shuffleboard at work. Previously, only veteran players were allowed to play. Earlier this season, older players said the games were off-limits to rookies until they first earned their stripes on the field.

After adding starting pitcher Scott Feldman and reliever Francisco Rodriguez this month, the Orioles have filled two needs before July 31's non-waiver trade deadline, but that doesn't mean they aren't still looking. One of the Orioles top scouts has been in Seattle this week watching the Mariners and the Minnesota Twins. Minnesota's former MVP Justin Morneau is on the trade block, and so may be several Mariners' hitters including Raul Ibanez and Kendrys Morales. Seattle slugger Mike Morse, whom the Orioles have liked for years, is currently rehabbing from a quadriceps injury in Triple-A.

The Orioles have had two consistent starters this season: Jason HammelandWei-Yin Chen. The other three spots have been anything but reliable. At times, Brian Matusz, Jake Arrieta and Tommy Hunter have been good. Other times, they've been way south of good. The positive news is that injuries have not hit the Orioles' rotation. The above-mentioned five have made 72 of the club's 73 starts. The other one was started by long reliever Dana Eveland. The bad news is that Jake Arrieta (3-9, 5.55 ERA in 16 starts)

The Orioles have traded the club's most accomplished starter, right-hander Jeremy Guthrie, to the Colorado Rockies. The Orioles received pitchers Jason Hammel and Matt Lindstrom from Colorado. It's believed the Orioles discussed a third player with the Rockies but eventually settled on Hammel and Lindstrom. Guthrie, 32, had spent the past five seasons with the Orioles, had started Opening Day three times and was again expected to pitch the club's opener April 6. But he was to be a free agent at the end of the season and had been rumored to be on the trade block for more than a year.

Yes, now we can assume Jason Kubel is off the trade block and off the Orioles' radar. Frankly, he wasn't exactly in the center of their radar, but now the outfielder is expected to stay with the Arizona Diamondbacks, who agreed to trade young star Justin Upton and infielder Chris Johnson to the Atlanta Braves -- pending physical -- for five players, including infielder-outfielder Martin Prado, high upside right-hander Randall Delgado and three minor...

Perhaps I am exaggerating a tad, but it seems like every time another club makes a personnel move, I get an email or a tweet from an Orioles fan wondering if it could affect the Orioles. If a player is rumored to be on the trade block or gets non-tendered or is designated for assignment, fans want to know if the Orioles have interest. Truth is, the Orioles front office hears the same rumors and views the same transaction info as you do. And they vet pretty much every option. And they have interest, to varying extents, on most players.

If Dan Duquette accomplishes his goal this week during baseball's annual winter meetings, he will leave here with an improved pitching staff that is fortified by trades. He wants to bolster the bullpen and rotation, yet still hold on to three of his most marketable hitters, catcher Matt Wieters, center fielder Adam Jones and right fielder Nick Markakis. And Duquette said he would be reluctant to trade a chunk of his young pitching, even if it hasn't yet performed to its capabilities.

Tonight at 11:59 p.m. is the deadline for the Orioles to tender contracts to their 14 players that are arbitration eligible. What that means in simpler, non-baseball language is that the Orioles have 14 players who are under team control, but have compiled at least three years of service in the majors and, therefore, have the right to have their 2013 contracts determined by an independent arbitrator. In most cases, these types of players receive significant bonuses in arbitration from their previous years.

With minutes remaining before Saturday's nonwaiver trade deadline, the Orioles pulled off their second deal in three days, sending left-handed reliever Will Ohman to the Florida Marlins for Triple-A right-hander Rick VandenHurk. VandenHurk, a 25-year-old from the Netherlands who has been shuttled between Triple-A and the majors the past four seasons, will go into Triple-A Norfolk's rotation and likely will be promoted to Baltimore later this season. He is 8-9 with a 5.96 ERA in 35 major league games (32 starts)

The Orioles' quest to acquire outfielder Mike Greenwell from the Boston Red Sox took an apparent turn for the worse yesterday at the general managers' meetings in Scottsdale, Ariz.One source said trade talks broke down when Boston general manager Lou Gorman announced Greenwell no longer was available. A second source said a potential trade was simply, "no go."The Orioles remain intent on acquiring a power-hitting outfielder, but they are now likely to focus their attention elsewhere rather than endure another tease from the unpredictable Gorman.

What has been more notable about the White Sox this winter — what they have done or what they have not done? They have super-sized the payroll. Specifically, they have added free agent Adam Dunn and re-signed Paul Konerko and A.J. Pierzynski in the wake of adding Jake Peavy, Alex Rios and Edwin Jackson in the previous year and a half, taking the Opening Day figure near $130 million from $103 million at the start of 2010. They haven't extended manager Ozzie Guillen's contract.
