    Hader was arguably a 3rd piece.

    I don't know a lot about Rios, so don't take this as my opinion on the player, but it's fair to say Alvarez projected to be much better than what Alvarez is or what Rios projects to be. He was a Top 20 prospect in baseball.

    A tweet about it is in this thread.

    They have the right to raise any medical issue and I don't fault the stringent review. But, if the fact there are medical issues leak or are shared with competing clubs, that's not operating in good faith. If they have legit concerns and want to talk it out in private with the team/player involved, that's fine. It's kind of a fine line, but I believe an important one.

    I hope not, that would be negotiating in poor faith. I'm fine if they strictly interpret a player's medicals, I just think using that as leverage is not the way to go about doing business.

    2:30 Dan Szymborski: The season’s done enough to suggest Machado’s not going to be a big plus at short. 2:30 Dan Szymborski: But you *can* take a small sample size of performance too seriously. 2:31 Dan Szymborski: It takes like 3 yeras of defensive stats to have the same predictive value as one year of offensive stats. 2:31 Dan Szymborski: So Manny’s stunk defensively, but it’s like a guy stinking offensively for a month and a week
  7. DJ Tanner 12:49 Does Yusniel Diaz's ETA move up with a trade to the O's? Does he overtake Mountcastle as their top prospect? Also with his 2 HR performance, do you see his projections going up? Kiley McDaniel 12:50 We have the O's list currently as a pretty clear top 3 of Hays, Mountcastle and Hall, and you could probably put those in any order. Diaz jumps into that group and probably in the top 3, but we haven't lined them up yet.

    It does make sense, but a couple of things, first Diaz is a top 50 prospect depending on who you ask. Second, I don't think we have any idea of the quality of the secondary, tertiary, and beyond pieces.

    Definitely the best of his offspeed pitches, he's only been throwing a distinct slider and curveball for less than a year. It was just one slurvy pitch last summer.

    Huh, I gotta go back and re-read some posts I guess. None of those things were/are my intention. I'm fine with rumors, especially if the source of said rumor is linked. I'm not mocking anyone. I just am of the opinion that the swirl of emotions from exuburance to depression over the return in a trade that no one here knows is a little bit overboard. I am fine with any criticism I receive for that opinion. My statement about stating opinions in public forums wasn't tongue in cheek or directed at anyone in particular, it's something I truly take to heart and applies to me as much as anyone else.

    If one is giving opinions in any sort of public forum, virtual or otherwise, he or she should be prepared to receive criticism.

    LF, 1B, there is still some amount of chance for 3B or even 2B. He's an athletic dude with some quickness, but if he's a 1B, he'll be good there, if he's a LF he should be average-ish there.

    No, he's not a DH.

    Who is bashing you, I'm just trying to calm the speculation, how many "reports" have come out with vastly different versions of the return. You have been confident in a strong return the entire time even when the publicly available knowledge pointed against that, but now some writer's speculation has you thinking differently?

    So obviously this is Heyman's personal speculation, countering speculation by others, just an intricate web of speculation.
