  1. Duquette's first BIG move (sarcasm)

    I would try and get him into winter baseball league that would take him as a catcher. The more positions he can play the better chances he could make the team "sometime" in 2018...Maybe after the July deadline purge.
  2. The #11 Pick in 2018 draft

    Baseball America has the O's taking Ryan Rolison/LHP, Mississppi. ?
  3. Build your 2018 Team

    Wilkerson played at both HiA and AA this year. He is set to play in the AFL. He would be min salary. He is a s/h with some pop and some speed. Has played mostly 2b in the minors..Some 3b/ss and 10 games in rf.
  4. So what's the rotation next year?

    One thing I have not seen mentioned is that "" 6 "" main members of the O's may NOT be here in 2019. IF, you were Cobb and or Lynn are you going/willing to sign a long term deal with the O's, when Manny, Zack, Adam and or Brad plus Dan and Buck may not be here... Peter needs to step up NOW and say what direction we are going.
  5. The Case for Justin Verlander (Pros / Cons)

    Be creative, don't ask for any money back. We trade them Mark Trumbo as a PTBNL (and his 26 mil over 2 yrs). Also they can pick out one of the 6 pitchers with no options (NOT named Castro) and can have the option to pick one player from the 21-23 players that need to be protected from the rule 5 draft (we can protect 10 players first).
  6. Santander

    Bowie off. Travel day for them.
  7. The Wildcard Race

    Bench will be restructured shortly. Flaherty, Santander and Hardy....all coming off the DL.
  8. We get Tim Beckham...and its a good pick up

    One thing to add to this topic. This is Tampa's M.O. to trade players before they get to expensive (arbitration) or their contracts end and they become F/A. Some on this list: James Shields, Wade Davis, Wil Myers, David Price, Scott Kazmir and Matt Garza. Anyone see a theme. Someone in the Ray's staff can find pitchers.
  9. Deadline Deal Orioles Mega-Thread

    Darvish, is a free agent after this year. IF the Rangers offered him a Q/O and he signed elsewhere, the best the Rangers could get would be a pick in the 70-80 range. The three players may not be great, however they are better than a pick in that range.
  10. Asher and Bleier should each get 5 starts in September

    With talk of moving Smith and or Castillo, I would add one of the above to a trade to get "" a little more back " Note: I think there are seven pitchers on the 40 man roster that are OUT of minor league options. I would not wait to non-tender this winter or next spring training..Add this type of player to any trade to improve what comes back.
  11. Sell Tillman

    I would be willing to add Tillman to/with a trade of Britton to either the Astro's or Dodgers. Both teams need an extra arm. Hopefully this would allow us to get back (example only) a # 4 instead of a #5 and add something in the 20 range of prospects. Note: we would be getting more for Britton, Tillman adds the little extra of above.
  12. TT: The only question left for Angelos

    I too like Kim Ng. I would keep Brandy as a do all V.P.
  13. Hays and Yaz going crazy for BaySox

    You can go to: Roster Resource.com for the options. Note: I think if it shows 1 option, that 1 option is THIS year. I think there are 17 players that need to be looked at to be added to the 40 man roster. Best of that group are: Sisco/Long and Scott.
  14. Rosenthal: O's Preparing to Sell

    Dan can give him some or all of the Intl slot money left to come back to baseball (lol).
