Orioles Trade Olson For Pie

Orioles Trade Olson For Pie


Ken Rosenthal is reporting that the Orioles have traded Garrett Olson and Class-A righthander Henry Williamson to the Cubs in exchange for Felix Pie.

Olson figures to slot in as a middle-reliever for the Cubs or as a fifth starter, depending on what role they have planned for Sean Marshall.

Pie could start off the 2009 season as a backup for all three outfield spots, according to Rosenthal. Rosenthal also suggests Pie playing left field, with Aubrey Huff manning first base and Luke Scott becoming a full-time DH. That idea seems to make more sense to me.

If Pie can realize any of his potential in a new setting, the Orioles will have one of the more talented young outfields in baseball.

Good trade for Jim

Olson's a known commodity. Williamson looks like a good arm with a good k rate at the lower levels.

I wonder if the Harden news will have Jim upping his ante.

they knew all along how Harden was. this is hopefully a precursor to the Peavy deal which is hopefully going to be done after they announce a new owner.

5:20pm: Tom Krasovic notes the Padres' previous interest in Olson. He examines the possibility of the Cubs and Padres making a Jake Peavy deal.

Great trade to be rid of Pie ! ( i really believe he was a result of the scout pay-ola )

I don't see where the Harden news is new , I tried telling everyone last year the guy had a bum flipper.

Harden is a well known commodity and JH will have to build the bp accordingly.

Peavy for Pie is worth the deal if that's what it ultimately ends up to be. We shall see if it was not a huge mistake now won't we.

I tend to think it will be

.
I'm a fan of Pie. He has eventually adjusted to every level if he's given the chance. I don't think he would ever be the superstar people made him out to be, but like Mike Cameron in his prime, you don't have to put up particularly huge numbers to be a mainstay in CF.

However, Fukudome's failure as a RF is what really spelt the end of Pie. This was a move Jim was forced to make.
