The Orioles graciously agreed to let horrible pitcher Adam Loewen out of his major league contract and promised to re-sign him to a minor league contract so they could turn him into the next Rick Ankiel (and maybe salvage some of that $4 million they've spent on him.) It was the perfect plan—until Loewen ("an overpaid, underachieving, glass-armed, floppy-haired jerk") signed with the Blue Jays instead. Oops. [Orioles Examiner]
