    TT: Orioles get Haul for Machado

    I wouldn’t. Jones was Seattle’s no. 1 prospect and a top 20 guy. I believe Tillman was no. 2 and Butler no. 6. Sherrill was established as a good major league reliever. That was a much bigger haul — as it should have been.
  2. Go sign Victor Victor Mesa, and let’s get started.
  3. Right. Took two and a half months, but right.
  4. Please don’t start with the political stuff.

    Big time talk from Dan

    Sure sounds like it, doesn’t it?

    Machado to the Dodgers, 5-1 deal

    Haha, if that had happened the OH board would have had a complete meltdown.
  7. I’m still mulling over the trade, but it’s clear to me that we did a good job of turning this into an auction and picking the deal we liked best. It’s laughable to me that a significant chunk of people actually thought they’d be stupid enough that Manny wouldn’t get traded at all. This was handled very competently, if a little deliberately.

    TT: Orioles get Haul for Machado

    Excellent article. As I just wrote in another thread, I can’t believe how quickly you got this article up, with fairly detailed analysis of each player. Did you get advance notice of who the players were?

    Did Tony have advance notice of who we got in this trade? I can’t believe how quickly he got this story out with a fairly in depth analysis of each player. Kudos, Tony.

    Machado Trade Expectations

    Thanks. I got confused reading this and assumed he was in the package.

    Machado to the Dodgers, 5-1 deal

    Remember, he’s the lead analyst for MLB Pipeline, which only ranked Diaz 84th. Other evaluators apparently like him better than Callis does.

    Machado Trade Expectations

    Remember too, that’s the PCL he’s pitching in. 3.14 ERA there is like low 2’s in the International League.
  13. Following on Greg Pappas’ thread where he asked people to predict the quality of the return we’d get for Manny, now that we know the outcome, how do you rate it? I’m using the same scale Greg used so we can see how the answers line up.

    Machado to the Dodgers, 5-1 deal

    If I were Justin Turner, I’d be looking forward to the $44 mm still due on my contract through 2020 and not worrying at all.

    Yes, he looks interesting. 2017 7th rounder, and only 21 in high A. Plus, cool name.
