    The Trades are Coming

    I don’t see Peter being an issue. They will be clearing money off the books. They have traded draft picks away to clear money off the books. This time they should actually receive something of value when clearing that money. fYI - They only have two contracts beyond 2019....Davis and Cobb

    Why not just promote Gary Rajsich to GM?

    I love this ida. I would keep DD as a VP and Gary as GM. Buck and Brady get the door. I know it will not happen. I am the one that also said CD will retire at the end of next year so call me crazy.
  3. Other - The losing will force the front office to do things it would not do otherwise. I see the losing as a positive.
  4. What I am suggesting is 4 years into the contract.
  5. I have one that may seem just as crazy. Chris Davis will retire after the 2019 season. He has too much pride to show up for a pay check he is not earning.

    Harvey Scratched?

    He could be called up if Schoop goes on the DL.

    Os requesting offers on Machado

    The Orioles had the 10th highest payroll last year. 15 to 20 teams wish their owner was that cheap.

    I see Friday as a big day. Teams will basically close down for the holidays Friday. In January teams will need to start focusing on improving with or without Manny. I hope the Orioles see Friday as a quasi deadline but I doubt it.

    Quick Nats fact, since coming into existence they have made a trade with every team but one. Manny in not heading south on the Parkway.

    Os requesting offers on Machado

    Almost every year they win a division in which the other 4 teams finish below 500. It’s easy to look like a powerful when you play powderpuffs.
  12. Matt Moore any one. From MLB trade rumors.... The Giants are nearing a significant swap that will open up payroll space, according to John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle (via Twitter). The pact will involve either or both of lefty Matt Moore and outfielder Hunter Pence. Details of the arrangement — including the prospective trade partner — aren’t yet known. But Shea says a deal is in place pending physicals, so it certainly appears that a move of some kind is imminent.

    This saga will drag out until July 31.

    Rule 5 Draft Preference List

    Story sounds a little like when they drafted Jason Garcia.
  15. I agree with this. There seems to be a certain tolerance level with the physical. They have reduced and tried to reduce the length of contracts based on the physical. They don’t always just walk away. I would think a contrast of one year $6 mill is in the wheelhouse if the players going to the Mets are reasonable in the Orioles eyes. I would also think Brach or Givens is too much with the risk.
