Anyway, the latest is from Buster Olney of ESPN who tweets : "O's have their offer on table; Vlad is looking for more." He also said the next 48 hours will be vital. Could that be a threat from the Orioles to pull their offer and go ahead with Luke Scott back at DH at Felix Pie and Nolan Reimold in the outfield? Scott was good last year as a DH, so the Orioles' decision with Guerrero depends more on their comfort with Pie and Reimold.
Guerrero's choice is pretty much down to the Orioles, who have been offering a reported $3-5 million one-year contract. The Tigers' Dave Dombrowski may speak for the rest of the American League, when told the Detroit News yesterday : "There's not a fit for us. We're not involved with that at all and haven't been."
The only other team with a real opening for a full-time DH could be the Royals, but it's not as if they're going to be handing out big money or multi-year deals. The Blue Jays could return Guerrero to Canada, but they appear to be set with Edwin Encarnacion and Adam Lind at DH and just got one big-money player off the books and are unlikely looking to add another.
