5 potential partners in a Marcus Stroman trade: #1 - Baltimore Orioles

ORIOLES MAGIC, MAKE IT HAPPEN. Do you feel it? Birdland sure does - with the Orioles sitting atop the American League East approaching the trade deadline with one glaring need: a front-of-the-rotation starter.

Stroman, known for his passionate play and outstanding leadership qualities, has the potential to step into this Baltimore clubhouse and immediately leave his mark, not only in what he does on the mound, but what he does off it. We've seen that since he came to the North Side and given how young and raw that Orioles team is, he could do it in a potentially more impactful manner in Baltimore.


At 62-39, the O's are clicking in just about every way as their vaunted prospects continue to make their way to the big leagues, with plenty more in the pipeline to come. The chips are there, Mike Elias. Time to push them into the center of the table in a move your team so desperately needs - it just so happens the Cubs might be the perfect match.
