O's trade Jorge Julio and John Maine for Kris Benson

I hinted to this earlier, but either way, I think this is a solid move for the Orioles. Here's a rundown of the 3 players.

Kris Benson-Kris Benson is a much-needed veteran to add to the staff. He eats innings and has a solid ERA, and I think he will excel in a smaller city.

John Maine-Nothing special. If he can master his control again he could become a #4/#5 starter in the MLB, but that is still unlikely.

Jorge Julio-Let's put it this way:I'm ecstatic to see this guy leave.

I think this is a solid move for the O's and a move we had to do. If we could sign Weaver and trade Bedard/Gibbons for Abreu or Bedard/Midlevel player for Dunn this team is ready to compete.
