    You know that many of these so called list are written by wannabe GMs, every team has their own list of both majors and minor league players, who they actually scout on a regular basic.

    Like , I said, I have been watching baseball for 55 years, and I have never seen a trade of a superstar player that the fanbase really liked, it just doesn't happen.

    Being a baseball fan today is like living a dream, you can follow every game anywhere and at any time, you are very lucky!!!

    You many get many more if the rumors are right, the problem to day is that we have instant media, people put out rumors of deals that only exist in their minds. I have been following baseball for 55 years and in the old days, we had to wait until The Sporting New to come out to see what minor leaguers we traded to come out, thank god, you have the media we have today. I actually get up in the mornings and can read both the MLB and MiLB box scores, it a wonderful thing.

    Yes he did, but he showed what he had, and if we based players on one game, we would really have a problem, wouldn't we.

    It will be the Phillies owner and fanbase that will make this deal possible, not the front office if a deal is made, we will only receive players that are not considered future starters in their organization , players who are blocked by having a better player playing on the MLB level or grade out better. The truth of the situation is that many of these so called trade rumors and the prospects involved are fake new. Nobody will find out the truth until years later when some front office person retires and tells his story of the trade that got away, beware of the false rumors because it happens every year.

    All the trade really has to beat is the comp pick for next year, every team knows that, and has given them a deal that will surely best that, giving up multiple prospects in a team top ten is usually greater than one comp pick!!

    Since nobody has mentioned it, how would you feel about a Manny and Schoop package deal with the Phillies, they would love that, the front office is all ex orioles and it makes sense if you really want to sign Manny for next year.

    A lot of nasty comments about a prospect rating using GM wannabe rating, the only one that really counts is the orioles scouts rating on players, and the orioles have a list, you can bet your money on that!!!

    Adam Jones Trade Expectations

    The only way to trade Jones for a B prospect is to eat the rest of his contract for this year!!!!

    Adam Jones Trade Expectations

    Not worth the QO, it would be a big overpay, Jones is worth about 10 million at the most on the open market, maybe 12 for the orioles.

    Adam Jones Trade Expectations

    Maybe a couple of C prospect, has to move to a corner, never had a good OBP, and makes to much money!
  13. He and like 30 other players are at expanded spring training waiting until the short summer leagues open up, I believe their working on his fielding because from what I hear, the boy can hit.
  14. We actually have about a team and a half at extended spring training in Florida waiting till Aberdeen starts.

    Some things a bit overlooked

    Adam will come back next year because the orioles will offer him more money to come back, right now he is looking at Nick type of money, the orioles will offer more, either way his days in CF are over. He is worth more money to the orioles than any other team.
