Showalter continues to scoff at Orioles trade rumors

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. – Buck Showalter keeps insisting that he doesn’t take the constant trade rumors involving the Orioles very seriously at all.

“We’ve got these four or five big trades that are going to happen that’s going to change all that,” Showalter scoffed.

“I don’t read anything. I don’t listen.”

Showalter says he relies to team public relations director Kristen Hudak to relay rumors. He may also listen to some when he’s getting a cup of coffee and MLB Network is on.

Executive vice president of baseball operations Dan Duquette was with the team in New York and confers continually with Showalter about trade talks. Duquette is in Cooperstown, N.Y. for Pedro Martinez’s Hall of Fame induction

Earlier today, Foxsports.com’s Jon Morosi said the team was considering trading Wei-Yin Chen, Chris Davis and Matt Wieters. .

“Dan has never even brought that up and he brings up anything and everything that might be out there, and he’s never even mentioned that,” Showalter said.

We can’t stop staring at these Bowie Baysox commemorative moon landing jerseys

One of the coolest things about Minor League Baseball is the creativity that comes with it.

The stadiums. The ice cream deals. The interesting mascots. And most importantly, the uniforms.

The Bowie Baysox, the Double-A affiliate of the Baltimore Orioles, released special uniforms they will be wearing on Saturday for the 50th anniversary of the Moon Landing.

And, oh wow, are they something. Take a look.

On the front of the uniform, you can see the image of where lunar module pilot Buzz Aldrin planted the American flag on the lunar surface of the moon. On the back, a satellite view of the moon is pictured, with the player's number on top of it. Both the number and the cursive "Baysox" on the front are filled in with the American flag.

If you're looking for some to do on Saturday, go support the Baysox and their Moon Landing uniforms. If only there was a jersey giveaway.
