After coming close to reaching the postseason thanks to a surprising surge back into contention, the Baltimore Orioles were said to potentially be one of the busiest teams in baseball this winter.
However, aside from the bargain signings of Adam Frazier, Mychal Givens, and Kyle Gibson, Baltimore has been relatively quiet.
But early last week, Dan Connolly of The Athletic was in attendance for a talk given by the team’s owner, John Angelos.
Angelos said that the Orioles would be opening up their books by the end of this current week.
However, tomorrow marks the end of this week, and Angelos has still yet to deliver on that promise.
On MLK Day, John Angelos said he’d open the O’s books “next week.” Friday is end of “next week.” And all requests have been met with, “nothing yet.” Not surprising, but a shame. Cuz Angelos would look more honest and we’d learn about team and its future. https://t.co/MJYmCpDyIx

This may upset the fanbase of the Orioles.
After a surprising return to contention, fans were expecting the front office to be a little bit busier this offseason and try to sign some key players.
The signings the Orioles have made have been frugal and could prove to be impactful.
However, this is not what fans were expecting.
With young stars such as Austin Hays, Gunnar Henderson, Adley Rutschman, Ryan Mountcastle, DL Hall, and John Means, the time is now for the Orioles to try and supplement their group of stars with some outside additions.
There is still time for them to make some key additions.
Their starting rotation could use another viable piece.
Michael Wacha is a starter they have been linked to in recent weeks.
Zack Greinke is also available and could find a fit in Baltimore.
But until Angelos delivers on his promise, Orioles fans aren’t going to be too happy.NEXT: Orioles Make A Swap For A Left-Hander
