    Orioles O's sign Betemit

    Dan Connolly of the Baltimore Sun reports that the Orioles have signed Wilson Betemit to a one-year contract, pending a physical.
    Terms aren't yet available. The Orioles planned to go with Mark Reynolds at third base and Chris Davis at first base, but Betemit gives another option at the hot corner. Of course, he isn't known for his glove, so he could also slot in at designated hitter. The 30-year-old batted .285/.343/.452 with eight home runs, 46 RBI and a .795 OPS over 359 plate appearances last season between Kansas City and Detroit.
    I'm surprised to see have to settle for a job by the Orioles. I thought he could have found a better team to play for. Betemit should be the starting 3B for the Orioles by default since Davis and Reynolds aren't very good defenders with Reynolds being downright awful. Reynolds can DH with Davis playing 1B.

    His two year deal is worth a total of $3 million but could make an extra $3 million in performance bonuses.

    Hmmm, guess it’s just me that thinks the O’s are better then they may appear.
