The Royals, no surprise, won’t part with first baseman Billy Butler or third baseman Alex Gordon. And the Orioles apparently aren’t interested in anyone else, including the idea of switching second baseman Alberto Callaspo to third. . . . Unless the clubs rekindle talks, the Royals will likely continue their pursuit of free-agent outfielder Scott Podsednik.Dutton At least GMDM isn't giving up on Gordon. I can't believe the O's think they could get Butler for Pie. They may be very close in WAR, but Billy just showed the team that he's ready to soar while Pie isn't considered a full-time player by Baltimore. Also, I never cared about Podsednik before, but I already hate him now.
