FANTASY BASEBALL BREAKING HOT STOVE NEWS: ORIOLES HAVE AGREEMENT "IN PRINCIPLE" WITH CLOSER FERNANDO RODNEY

                                        

According to a team source on the condition of anonymity, the Baltimore Orioles have reached an agreement in principle with free agent closer Fernando Rodney.  After the team's two-year deal with fellow closer Grant Balfour fell through due to an issue with his physical, the Orioles quickly made contact with Rodney and initiated talks.  An announcement could come as soon as Saturday night. 

Analysis:  Makes sense on many levels as Rodney stays with a contender and remains a closer.  With closing opportunities filling up quick, it was right for Rodney to jump right at the Orioles' offer.  Rodney remains a middle tier closer who is solid but always prone to poor stretches.
