    Britton Trade Expectations

    Its Mullins time...

    I believe he's talking about Mr. Jones.

    Dan Duquette -- any chance he stays?

    And maybe they can keep him here and actually let him implement what he wants to do.

    This is a GREAT idea. I love the idea of a Gausman/Britton package to get some serious prospects back.

    Schoop: Extend or Trade

    Extending a very good reliever is a little less risky than extending a guy coming off a career year that's struggling and will likely need to be moved off his current position in a couple of years. Especially when it will likely cost you more money to do so.

    Machado to the Dodgers, 5-1 deal

    Amen. What would us getting back a decent position player now do? That player will likely be gone by the time the O's are relevant again.

    Britton Trade Expectations

    Oh, I'd much rather have a legit prospect. I was comparing the two young guys compared to an older AA player, not legit prospects.
  8. Is Whitley going to be a pitcher or outfielder? Seems like he's been struggling at the plate.

    Britton Trade Expectations

    Good find, BB. And...good prospect-hunting, Tryptamine. I'd like to take chances on guys like this than some 24 year-old in AA ball who's having his best season ever. It makes more sense from a "rebuilding" standpoint.

    Renato Nunez the likely Machado replacement

    I love what Chris has done for this franchise, but I think this makes the most sense.

    Dan Duquette -- any chance he stays?

    Personally, I'd like to see it happen. Judging by Andrew Friedman's comments, it sounds like Dan was leading the Manny trade, and seemed to handle it very well. I think we got the best return we could. Dan's own comments about changes in the organization sounded very encouraging and like he'd be happy to play a role in it. I'd like to hand him the keys and see what he could do with a budget number and letting him have the autonomy to make personnel decisions.

    Yusniel Díaz 2018 vs Adam Jones 2008

    I think so, though I worry about his lack of doubles in the minors. Reports are that he gets the barrel of the bat on the ball well, so you'd have to think his extra-base hit totals would improve.

    I'm actually hoping he goes on a tear for the next week and a half and some team wants him for the stretch run.

    Renato Nunez the likely Machado replacement

    I think this move makes the most sense. I'd leave him there for the duration of the season unless he's completely over matched.

    Yusniel Díaz 2018 vs Adam Jones 2008

    I think Diaz compares more closely to Nick Markakis than Adam Jones.
