    Britton Trade Expectations

    I think we might be able to get a top 100 guy if enough teams are involved. I'd rather have quality than quantity with this trade.

    TT: Orioles get Haul for Machado

    The fact that we are even having a discussion about the Bedard vs. Manny haul is crazy. Bedard had 2 years of control, Manny has 3 months. Pretty stelar return IMO.

    Manny Machado Appreciation Thread

    Manny coming up and playing 3b during the magical 2012 season was such an amazing thing to see. We were in the dark ages for so long, it was great to see a young player come up and thrive on a winning team. His defense at third was an AMAZING thing to watch. Good luck in LA Manny!

    Big time talk from Dan

    I'm not 100% against keeping Buck as manager. It might be more his speed at this point though to just be like some type of minor league coordinator or adviser.

    Big time talk from Dan

    This all sounds awesome. Very promising. I'm all for Dan staying if this is all true.

    Machado Trade Expectations

    If Dan can trade Machado without losing Manny, I've vastly underestimated his negotiating skills.

    What does SB stand for? Not sure I've seen that stat in regards to the Orioles for awhile?

    Machado Trade Expectations

    Pretty sure his wife posts on that Instagram too. Could have been her that 'liked' it. Still interesting...

    Machado Trade Expectations

    Sounds like he would be a top 5 guy in our system. You think his hit tool is better than Mountcastle's? I assume his defense is much better.

    Machado Trade Expectations

    I'm sure Luke-OH will have a better report, but here is what MLB.com has on their scouting report about him: Rylan Bannon Scouting Report Drafted: 2017, 8th (250) - LAD ETA: 2020 Scouting grades: Hit: 50 | Power: 45 | Run: 50 | Arm: 55 | Field: 55 | Overall: 45 Bannon hit a combined .238 with eight homers in his first two seasons at Xavier before exploding as a junior in 2017, winning Big East Conference player of the year honors after hitting .339 and topping the circuit with 15 homers, 140 total bases and a .633 slugging percentage. He continued to rake after signing for $122,500 as an eighth-round pick, logging a .336/.425/.591 slash line in the Rookie-level Pioneer League. The Dodgers believed he was advanced enough to handle a jump to Class A Advanced to begin his first full pro season. Despite those gaudy numbers at the plate, Bannon may be more impressive with the glove. He has range to both sides and comes in on balls well, and he possesses soft hands as well as solid arm strength. He could be a plus defender with more consistency, and he's quick enough that Los Angeles is giving him some time at second base this year. Bannon still has to prove his bat will play at higher levels, but he's off to a good start. His right-handed swing can get long at times and he can be overly pull-conscious, though he does have power to left field and the patience to draw some walks. He's an average runner with nice instincts on the bases. https://www.mlb.com/dodgers/prospects/stats?dateRange=Year2018&minPA=1

    Brady helped with plan to convert Yacabonis to starter

    No, he was the architect for the "Dempsey's" sign on the side of the warehouse.

    DJ Stewart 2018

    His defense looks pretty good on this play. https://twitter.com/indyindians/status/1009940513087160320 (sorry, can't embed twitter while at work).

    O's said to be interested in Hanley Ramirez

    I just threw up in my mouth a little bit.

    Who was hot in May?

    Great overview. Thanks for putting this together. I would promote Yastrzemski and DFA Gentry. It's time to see if he can be the 4th outfielder.
