Wednesday Morning’s Crabs and Beer

December 09, 2009 | Glenn Clark

David Hernandez is a fine trade chip for the Baltimore Orioles, but not for a short rental of Kevin Millwood. If the Orioles are going to trade David Hernandez, they should be trading him for a legitimate major league player who could be around for a couple years-you know, when the Orioles are planning on getting “good.”
