08:40 AM ET 11.16 | There have been reports and counter-reports about the availability of Orioles shortstop J.J. Hardy and catcher Matt Wieters this winter, and it's impossible to shoot them down because, frankly, anybody is available at the right price. Blockbuster offseason deals have become less common in baseball's megabucks era, but they do happen once in awhile, so nothing is ever entirely out of the question. But does anybody really think that Dan Duquette and Buck Showalter would trade away half of baseball's best middle infield right after the Orioles set all-time records for fewest errors, most errorless games and highest team fielding percentage?

Matt Wieters is why teams should think really really hard about signing McCann to a long term deal this year. Patience pays off. It appears the Orioles are just not going t throw big money at him, or they did and he has said no thanks.

I think Buck Showalter has a Hardy Weiter for the world.

What rumors, except in media looking for something (anything) to say?

to trade or not to trade......IF there is a good prospect return then the team likely trade one or both players,,

if the players are about to hit the free agency,then the orioles should trade them unless
the orioles organization are sure about signing both players to a long terms,,,
