Trade Deadline: #SFGiants Lose Out on Bud Norris, Immature Jokes Await Trade Reaction

By Stuart Jones

There was reported interest in SP Bud Norris from the San Francisco Giants, but it appears Norris will be going from one dugout to the other as the Orioles are just about done with acquiring Norris from the Astros. Norris is scheduled to be a free agent after the 2015 season, so his services being controlled, while only making $3MM this year made him an attractive piece that other teams coveted.

While OF L.J. Hoes would not be the only player included in the deal, you can see where all the jokes will be coming from. Less than twenty-five minutes left until the trade deadline.
