Vladimir Guerrero and the Baltimore Orioles are making progress in their talks for a 2011 contract, sources tell ESPN The Magazine's Buster Olney.

After the signing of Manny Ramirez last week, Guerrero was considered the top remaining candidate for a designated hitter spot in the American League.

The addition of Guerrero would be the latest move in a busy offseason for the Orioles, who also added slugging corner infielders Mark Reynolds and Derrek Lee.

The 35-year-old Guerrero hit .300 with 29 home runs and 115 RBIs last season with the Texas Rangers.

In 15 MLB seasons, Guerrero has 436 home runs, 1,433 RBIs and a career average of .320.

Bottom line Our O's will not be in contention until we find great pitching i love the route that we are taking to develop pitching that being said we are still 3 years behind and still in need of replenishing our farm systems its nice to sign Vlad but we are in drastic need of a big time left handed bat at camden yards someone like a Prince Fielder. Prince would easily hit 45 bombs a year in Baltimore.
