Host Connor Newcomb continues our countdown of the "Top 10 Orioles Transactions of the Last Decade" with the No. 2-ranked moves on the list — the acquisitions of starting pitchers Jason Hammel, Wei-Yin Chen, and Miguel Gonzalez in January and February of 2012. Connor talks:

-Hammel could have put together one of the best seasons in Orioles history had he not gotten hurt in 2012

-Him struggling in 2013 was disappointing

-That trade also got the Orioles Matt Lindstrom, which in turn got them Joe Saunders!

-Chen gave the Orioles more than they could have asked for in his four seasons in Baltimore

-The O's let him walk at the right time

-The Gonzalez signing could have been the highest pay-off of any move Dan Duquette made

-He may have been the Orioles most consistent starting pitcher 2012-14
