    Britton Trade Expectations

    I worry about my ability to quantify PED use among MiLB players. I worry about the temptation.
  2. A more sensible take than many. And who cares who the "Best" teams are during the playoffs. Give me a hot and lucky one. With Relievers.

    Can the Orioles afford to? Don't they need to save about 15 million more?

    They don't swing until the sixth pitch. They foul off 3-2. He's not wild.

    Britton Trade Expectations

    Britton Derby By Connor Byrne | July 21, 2018 at 6:38pm CDT https://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2018/07/cubs-deeply-involved-in-zach-britton-derby.html With Brad Hand and Jeurys Familia now off the market, Orioles left-hander Zach Britton may be the best soon-to-be traded reliever in baseball. The 30-year-old has drawn widespread interest in recent weeks, too, with Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reporting “virtually every top contender” is in on him (video link). The NL Central-leading Cubs are among that group, and they “remain deeply involved” ... In at least the near term, Britton would likely serve as a replacement for Cubs closer Brandon Morrow, who went on the disabled list this week on account of right biceps inflammation. .... Not only has Britton gone eight straight appearances (eight innings) without yielding an earned run, but he has seen his velocity climb closer to its past levels in the process. Of course, Britton has also walked a batter in three straight outings and has issued an unpalatable 10 free passes against 13 strikeouts in 15 2/3 innings this year. To Britton’s credit, though, he has posted a 3.45 ERA and a terrific groundball rate (64.1 percent). While the Cubs are high on Britton, Mooney wonders if they have a good enough farm system to win a bidding war for the pending free agent. ... Rosenthal notes Britton is likely to yield a “strong” return with so many championship hopefuls chasing him.

    Adam Jones Trade Expectations

    I read him saying that ideally the Orioles would trade him this year and bring him back this offseason. So I doubt that is an issue.

    We desperately need our next JJ Hardy

    His name is either Cadyn Grenier or Adam Hall.

    Finding a market for Valencia

    Similar to when the Orioles last traded for Steve Pearce.

    Finding a market for Valencia

    I think that Valencia would bring back something of value that would not need to be on the 40 man roster.

    Finding a market for Valencia

    So your unfortunate take is that he would pass through waivers unclaimed?

    Their lead is completely because of the Brewers failure. And Heck, the Nationals are under .500 They'll be sellers!
