I am not willing to cut them any slack even if a trade was potentially in the works which we don't know for sure. It made no sense to DFA Wittgren and risk losing him for essentially nothing. Especially when they ended up DFA'ing Galloway anyway today, he should have been the choice initially probably.

Dumb decision and one I think they will regret.

Yeah agree completely Galloway should've been the guy going when Walker was signed.

Cheap Jeter likely claimed Austin because the Brice was right. 

No.  Lol.

I'm rather confused.

 

Also, why would they DFA Wittgren even if there was a trade coming? I'm thinking there must be a technical reason that I just don't know/understand...

Because they had signed Neil Walker and needed the roster space.

from few years ago

Jordan Milbrath, RHP, 0.3 KATOH — The team’s Rule 5 pick, Milbrath is a 26-year-old, sinker/slider reliever who lowered his arm slot this year. He sits 93-96 and his short little slider is below average in a vacuum but plays up due to his slot. He’s likely a righty specialist.

Because they don’t know what they’re doing.

Ya because claiming someone from the Oriole roster they don't want seems like a wise decision.
