    And the Orioles for him against the DRays.

    And the Yankees for him against the Blue Jays.

    And the DRays for him against...ooops.

    Agreed Angelos has hindered the Orioles, but Thrift's big fire sale netted the Orioles one impact player - Melvin Mora, who blossomed in Baltimore. Every other player the Orioles received (for Mike Bordick, Charles Johnson, B.J. Surhoff, etc.) brought back minor league scrubs or injured players (Luis Rivera! Great prospect!).

    Charles Johnson never lived up to the hype coming out of the U. Bordick was falling apart at that point. Surhoff is like 58. How would you expect him to get a lot for those guys?
