More on Monroe
Dombrowski confirmed that he had discussions with the Orioles this morning, though he wouldn’t confirm the ESPN.com report that it involved Craig Monroe. He said the O’s came to them, not the other way around. He didn’t go into specifics on Monroe, but he said they’re not looking to change anybody in the everyday lineup. In a roundabout way, you can take that to mean (again) they’re listening, but not shopping. Dombrowski did say they’re not close on anything, and that they’re not talking about big deals at this point.
