    Jimenez Fills Orioles’ Biggest Need
After months of rumor and disappointment, the Baltimore Orioles finally made the offseason splash fans hoped for when they agreed to terms with right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez on a four-year deal reportedly worth close to $50 million. The club broke its long-standing restriction on long-term contracts for free agent pitchers by signing Jimenez. The 30-year-old hurler has his warts, as detractors are already pointing out, but he fills the Orioles’ biggest hole and offers tremendous upside. The team is better today, and that’s good enough for me.

    Roasted Chickpeas 
I followed this simple recipe and made a delicious snack. I can say that the use of parchment paper is very important. A few of the chickpeas rolled off the parchment paper and were burned to a crisp. It took me all of 45 minutes to get the proper crispness, so pay close attention around the 40 minute mark. The chickpeas were delicious and had the entire house smelling like a roasted chicken. My kids were indifferent but I doubled the recipe and still scarfed these bad boys down in about two days. I couldn’t walk through the kitchen without grabbing a handful.
Enjoy.

    The Pirates Stand Pat
Chris Stewart and Edinson Volquez. That’s it. Stewart and Volquez represent the entirety of the Pittsburgh Pirates offseason maneuvering.
While the Baltimore Orioles have been correctly lambasted for their failures to address the club’s weaknesses this winter, the Pirates get a pass. Pittsburgh made the playoffs last season for the first time since 1992 and have spent the winter sitting on their hands. The club was propelled to October by the strong play of National League MVP Andrew McCutcheon, slugging third baseman Pedro Alvarez, and a deep and talented young pitching staff. The core of last season’s Wild Card team remains intact but manager Clint Hurdle will be looking at internal candidates to replace several key veterans lost to free agency.

    Can Ervin Santana Save the Orioles Offseason?
After bungling the Grant Balfour signing, whiffing on Bronson Arroyo, and seemingly out of the running for A.J. Burnett the Orioles still have an opportunity to improve the pitching staff for the 2014 season. As Spring Training approaches the Orioles just need to be proactive and willing to spend some money to make a positive impact on the starting rotation. 
 
Ervin Santana remains available on the free agent market. The Orioles have been linked to the 31-year-old right-hander in recent days, but the club has also been linked to just about every possible available starter at some point this offseason. The Orioles’ “interest” may just be Santana’s agent hoping to drum up a market for his client.
