Andrew Cashner Bidding War?

Andrew Cashner Bidding War?

According to this story by Dan Connolly, the Orioles might be interested in dealing for Andrew Cashner? Not exactly surprising (who wouldn't want a kid who can hit 100 MPH on occasion), but still a bit of a head scratcher...

As is his policy, (Baltimore GM Dan) Duquette won’t reveal names, but, according to several industry sources, the Orioles are currently monitoring a group that includes Miami’s Ricky Nolasco, San Diego’s Edinson Volquez and Andrew Cashner, the Chicago CubsMatt Garza and Scott Feldman, the Chicago White Sox’s Jake Peavy and Houston’s Bud Norris.

And this gem...

Cashner is an intriguing name, and wouldn’t be a free agent until 2017. But it’s a long shot that the Padres deal him and, even so, the Orioles likely wouldn’t have enough to compete in that bidding war.

Unless we are talking about hometown boy Adam Jones, I really do not see why Byrnes trades his highest ceiling-ed and most controllable starter to Baltimore for Jake Arrieta (or Zach Britton) and a bunch of roster filler.
