Orioles | J.J. Hardy on the move?

The Detroit Tigers and Chicago Cubs have discussed a trade for SP Rick Porcello, but the Tigers are trying to get the Baltimore Orioles and SS J.J. Hardy involved in the deal. The Tigers like Hardy, and do not feel the Cubs have the necessary components for a straight-up trade between the two sides. Moving Hardy would allow the Orioles to move 3B Manny Machado back to shortstop in 2013, but the deal would reportedly have to bowl over the Orioles to get them interested.
