    Watch out for the Royals

    Even with the (hopefully) impending trades of some key talent, my gut says KC and the White Sox will take the top two spots.

    (Almost) All Things Manny Machado....

    I keep hoping that Manny is dealt to the Braves. I'd love to see us target 19-year old outfielder Drew Waters (Advanced A), and 21-year old RH starter Touki Toussaint (AA). Kolby Allard (AAA LHSP) or Ian Anderson (Advanced A RHSP) could potentially headline the deal. There are other teams' packages that could certainly suffice, but I prefer the Braves potential return over the others. I'm not expecting the Braves to pull the trigger on Manny, but a guy can dream, right? 😃
  3. "Unfortunately" is a word used quite often when discussing the O's. Correctly used, I might add. 😉
  4. If we can get a Jose Quintana-like return, I feel we should do it. The White Sox acquired power-hitting outfielder Eloy Jimenez, pitcher Dylan Cease, first baseman Matt Rose and middle infielder Bryant Flete. That was a very strong return. Jimenez is the #3 overall prospect in baseball and Cease is the #52. Both are performing very well.
  5. Pure speculation via a Bleacher Report piece. Jim Palmer replied to it on Twitter: If they're right regarding the potential haul we could get for Bundy, I say we should do it. I'm in the full rebuild camp, so anyone that can bring a very good long-term return, I'm for it.

    Could the leader we desperately need already be here?

    Truthfully I don't know how the players view these things. Maybe it depends on the makeup of the team? I know how I was taught to play baseball, and how the game is supposed to be played, yet many major league players do not show the hustle that they should.

    I'm not sure I understand your question. Are you referring to Jones or Machado? Was the question something akin to whether their fellow players feel that hustle is a criteria for being a leader?

    Machado Trade Expectations

    A question for all that voted here: Would you change your vote at this time, or do you feel the same?

    Machado Trade Expectations

    With recent news of executives being interviewed, that 3 month time frame may be in serious jeopardy.

    I think Jones has been a solid leader, and a pillar of the community. Machado, while an excellent player, is not a leader at this juncture of his career. If his hustle doesn't improve a great deal, I'm not sure he'll ever be viewed as such. Time will tell... it always does.

    It's fair to be highly skeptical of John's ability to be the answer. I just don't enough to be highly skeptical... I'm more skeptical-lite. =P I just wish I understood the detailed inner workings of who handles what for ownership, including most specifically what John does. I've read that John is the Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of the team, and he handles to some degree team promotions. However, I'm not really sure what those titles mean. Perhaps a poster here knows far more than I do and can fill us in.

    I'm no expert, but I firmly believe the team would stay here in Baltimore.

    50/50 seems about right. We sure could use a shot in the arm here... because I'd like to believe that hope isn't a four-letter word. 😉

    Good post.
