ESPN personalities chime in on Orioles

Whether you like the moves or not, you have to admit that the Orioles were busy this offseason and have assembled a team that has elicited different opinions from some of the most well-respected baseball personalities over at ESPN.

Here's what they had to say:

Keith Law

Jayson Stark

Buster Olney

Well at least it's nice for ESPN to actually spend some time talking about teams other than the Red Sox and Yankees, even if they don't always have positive things to say.

But out of the three of them, Stark and Olney liked what the O's did this offseason, and Law, who used to be a writer for Baseball Prospectus, usually bases his opinion on value-per-dollar-spent, and if a few things go wrong this season, the O's could have spent millions for nothing, much like they did with Garrett Atkins in 2010.
