    Talk is cheap. Lets sign Victor Victor Mesa

    Go get both Victor Victor and Victor Jr. The team has more money than most available to spend...
  2. I'm I the only one that's surprised they're still that high on Hays?

    I would in favor of re-signing Jones (more so than extending) provided he would happily move to RF, but with Diaz added to Mullins, Stewart, Hays, Santander, etc. I think the more pressing need for spending would be in the infield. Adding a good fielding SS would be more important to help the development of some pitchers than someone like Jones in the OF.

    I would love Santana and Diaz in the same deal...interestingly, I have both in a dynasty fantasy league (that goes 15-deep in minor league spots).

    Here's my guess: Yusneil Diaz, Dustin May, Drew Jackson and Logan Forsythe for Manny and some international bonus $

    Would the Orioles send International Signing Bonus Pool money in the deal to sweeten the pot for the Dodgers? They should. L.A. is one of the teams most likely to covet it AND it could certainly help land a better deal (along with taking back someone like Forsythe).

    I don't hate that deal at all. I like Lux more than Jackson, but Jackson's numbers at Double-A this year have been good. I like the OBP and he's shown both a bit of pop and some speed. He also appears to have some positional flexibility making him likely to at least have some Major League impact. I would take that deal in a heartbeat!

    If they take on Forsythe to make the money work, i think the Orioles can grab a second piece with Diaz and Lux. They'll get a pitcher and while I would LOVE for it to be May, I'd be happy with any of the names you suggest.

    I would hope that the O's have spoken to A.J. Hinch and asked he be pulled rather early in the game. That shouldn't be hard to accomplish with Lindor and Seager on the roster as well. I think the idea is give fans an All-Star in the game and while that seems dumb--i think it does play a bit among the casual fans. I also think it is done to appease Manny. While the O's won't be resigning him, the idea of allowing him to play in the game rather than doing the deal before the game helps with the perception of how the team handles its players. The team doesn't have the best perception, being perceived as doing something that's caring for a player may play well amongst other players. It's still probably a bad idea to chance it, but I think that's the logic.

    I'm pretty sure any Dodgers deal would include Forsythe leaving L.A. I'd be happy to take on that contract to get a bit of a better return.

    The KC to Houston deal with Beltran was in 2004. That's 14 years ago and hardly a good comp. Player valuation has changed wildly in that time. Plus, that was a three-team deal with KC, Oakland and Houston. In the end, KC got John Buck, Mark Teahen and Mike Wood. Buck was a former top-100 player, but had a bad year in the PCL in 2003 though he was better in 2004. Teahan was a back-end top-100 prospect. Wood had a few rough innings in Oakland in 2003 but was 11-3 witha 2.80 ERA in the PCL in 2004 prior to the deal.

    I would love that package, but still doubt you get all three...i think it would likely take Manny and Britton to get that deal done.

    I was too, but after you posed the question, I was interested.

    This is not to endorse any side of this argument, but to provide the info: The supplemental first round in 2012 included: Jose Berrios, Zach Eflin, Stephen Piscotty, Mitch Haniger, Joey Gallo, Lance McCullers, Matt Olson and Jesse Winkler The 2013 compensation first round, included: Aaron Judge (he was No.32) and Ryne Stanek...from 30-45 included: Josh Hart, Sean Manaea, Corey Knebel and Ryan McMahon The 2014 comp first round included: Jack Flaherty, Justus Sheffield and Michael Kopech. As for the others in the 30-45 range, we don't have a lot of major leaguers yet.

    So...if it is Medina and Gamboa with Franco, where do we see those two fall on the prospect lists? Do both go to Frederick?
