Could the Orioles have two 200-strikeout players?

Roch Kubatko of masnsport writes about the depth in the Orioles rotation.  Kubatko believes that Chris Tillman is running out of chances, maybe Tillman or Guthrie will be moved in the offseason.  Kubatko also reminds us that Brian Matusz is expected to return in "top physical condition" in February. With a surplus of arms, could the Orioles trade a few to bring in other assets? 

Rich Dubroff of CSNBaltimore writes about the year that Mark Reynolds had.  Dubroff writes that Reynolds is improving his approach and cutting down his strikeouts.  Since Reynolds moved to firstbase Dubroff noticed him playing more comfortable and saw his power numbers improve.  Dubroff weighs on if a 40 home run batter is worth 200 strikeouts.

It's believed that Reynolds will play first base next seasons and Chris Davis will play third.  Like Reynolds, Davis has a high strike out rate.  Could we see a team with a chance of having two 200-strikeout players?

When it comes to next season, most of the Orioles' positions are set. They could use a DH and rumor has it that they are talking to David Ortiz.  He would be an interesting piece for a developing team.
