Rounding up the headlines from the opening weekend of the 2021 MLB season.

When will MLB teams learn that long-term contracts aren’t always worthwhile in the long run? In fact, more times than not, they are downright terrible toward the end. Let’s take a look at the teams suffering through some of the worst contracts in baseball heading into the 2021 MLB season.
The Angels are working on a trade for Orioles starter Alex Cobb.
Veteran starting pitcher free agents Julio Teheran and Anibal Sanchez are throwing a joint showcase on Tuesday.
They only combined for three postseason series in that span and were barely competitive. However, that same period saw two of the greatest players of our generation on the same field at the same time - Mike Trout and Manny Machado. Of course, those two clubs mightily wasted their best weapons in their prime. In the process, they delivered some memorable games.
The Baltimore Orioles' outlook remains bleak. The 2019 season was brutal, as they racked up 108 losses. That was, at least, an improvement on the 115 tallied in 2018.
Los Angeles Angels traded for Baltimore Orioles starting pitcher Dylan Bundy on Wednesday, as reported by The Athletic's Ken Rosenthal.
Trey Mancini has disappeared into the 100-loss ether with the Baltimore Orioles. Several galaxies away from contention and without an attention-attracting superstar since Manny Machado was traded last July, the Orioles are stuck in the heavy mud of a lengthy rebuild. Mancini, meanwhile, continues to perform.
The Boston Red Sox acquired starting pitcher Andrew Cashner in a trade with the Baltimore Orioles.
The Orioles, having traded away Manny Machado and Jonathan Schoop and lost Adam Jones to free agency, are heading for a lengthy rebuild. The 115 games lost in 2018 was just the start.
The Baltimore Orioles are a team in sharp decline. Painful contracts, departing free agents and dire pitching mean it's rebuild time at Camden Yards.
