Roster Moves and Such

The O's sent down Adam Stern to AAA Norfolk today. Given that Sam Perlozzo has said they want to carry a defensive specialist, it appears that Freddie Bynum may actually make the team which I would not have predicted in a million years. Jason Dubois remains a dark horse.

Baltimore traded away a schmuck who happened to have a nice year at AA Bowie for journeyman catcher Alberto Castillo. Castillo will go to AAA but if you were thinking of making this move anyway, why not keep Donachie and release Bako? Just asking...

Erik Bedard gave up three runs to the Cards today. Bedard's big mistake (if you can call it that) was to challenge a career minor leaguer with moderate pop in his bat named Tagg Bozied. Tagg got lucky and put one over the fence. As a pitcher, you challenge that guy 10 times out of 10. It happens.

There is talk of trading for Reggie Sanders. Other than the fact that Sanders appears to be a good luck charm as he gets to the postseason a lot, I can't understand why Baltimore needs him on this team.
