Machado Trade Expectations

Machado Trade Expectations  

287 members have voted

  1. 1. Regarding the return we receive, what are your expectations of whatever Machado trade takes place?

    • The return will be outstanding.
    • The return will be solid.
    • The return will be merely decent.
    • The return will be poor.
    • The return will be just terrible.
    • I expect we will not trade him at all, getting only a compensation pick in next year's draft.

John Angelos has final say.

That isn't a distinct fact as ownership is slowly shifting. That's my guess though, and based on reports id say there is good reason.

You could at least add a trigger warning before dredging up such misery. 

Tex was dead to me the minute he signed with the Yankees.  I was over it a long time ago.

I think that event caused one poster to create the video of the Jtrea meltdown after...was absolutely fantastic stuff.

Gausman will be a FA in 2 years, if we are truly rebuilding, I see no reason not to trade him.  Bundy will be a FA I 3 years, I would wait until next year with him

I'm not sure if we're going to see a total rebuild. Knowing this Front Office, I think they're going to look at Bundy/Gausman/Cashner/Cobb and see a rotation that can compete. They're going to look at Hays, Mullins, and Mountcastle and see guys who can contribute and are ready. I think we see Jones resigned and another half-hearted shot at being relevant in 2019.

I could be totally wrong, but that's my gut feeling.

I’d wait on Givens too and not rush on Gausman. There’s a lot of other work to be done in the next two weeks.

It will also potentially help recruit a better next GM if we dangle a top 2 pick and several trade pieces to work with.

Tex was truly a huge ordeal on here.  I can't believe that was 10 years ago.

That was when Trea wanted to have a lineup of Tex, Prince Fielder and any other first baseman at any position.

Unfortunately, I think you could be right.

I don't know if I agree with this route.  During this process you will have players that should be the foundation of the rebuild and if they deem Bundy, Gausman or Schoop part of that they should be trying to extend them now.  Where they get into the problem is they rarely lock a player up early.  

If I'm the O's I want Schoop and Bundy signed long term so they can serve as leaders of the rebuild process.  Also you have to have some players that the team can promote for the  casual fans.  These 2 players are young, likable and seem to work hard at their craft so they would be my building blocks, not trade chips.

Got his wish 10 years later.  Except the 1B at various position don't hit and the O's are on pace for the worst record in team history.

A rival GM said the Orioles weren't hanging up when they asked about Gausman and Bundy. I see no reason to keep Gausman and Bundy if you are doing a rebuild. 

I would keep Bundy unless got a great offer for him.  He is just as likely to get much better as get much worse.  His work ethic is good for others to witness.  I also think he sets a great example re: changing speeds and locating pitches.  

Gausman would be traded by me if I could get a top 50 piece plus.

They would be fools if they didn't listen to offers for either of these guys.   But, it IS the Orioles we're talking about...

It's 2 weeks prior to the deadline and 9:30 AM of the morning after of a reported agreement.

Calm down guys.

Honestly.     People here get so worked up over every little rumor or if things don’t happen instantly.    It is crystal clear to me that Manny will be in another uniform on Friday, and it really doesn’t matter to me whether it gets announced this morning or tomorrow afternoon, other than to satisfy my curiosity over what the return exactly is.

    • For Immediate Release: July 20, 2019   BULLPEN SHUTS DOWN HILLCATS CUMBERLAND CLUBS GO-AHEAD HOME RUN TO LIFT KEYS LYNCHBURG, VA – A strong bullpen effort and a late two-run home run from Brett Cumberland gave the Frederick Keys (10-20, 39-60) a 3-1 victory in a tight game against the Lynchburg Hillcats (14-16, 46-51) on Saturday night at City Stadium. The bullpen was called upon early in the second inning after Ofelky Peralta left with an injury and they delivered eight shutout innings for the Keys. Juan Hillman was outstanding for the Hillcats as he struck out a career-high 10 batters over seven innings, but Cumberland struck in the eighth with a two-run blast to lift the Keys late in the game. Up 3-1 in the ninth inning, Tim Naughton (S, 4) came in to relieve Zach Matson (1-0), who pitched three scoreless innings and retired nine of 10 batters he faced. Naughton looked sharp to start, striking out Will Benson on four pitches but things turned slowly. Mitch Reeves was able to poke a double down the right-field line and Jonathan Laureano was hit-by-a-pitch which put the tying run on base. Naughton then struck out Jodd Carter looking but he walked Gavin Collins on four pitches to load the bases. Naughton though got ahead 0-2 to Steven Kwan, who flied out to right field to end the game. The Hillcats lone run came in the first inning when they loaded the bases against Peralta with one-out. Will Benson lifted a fly-ball to centerfield and Cole Billingsley fired a dart to third base to nab Wilbis Santiago for the third out of the inning. Tyler Freeman, however, tagged from third base and scored on the fly-ball to give Lynchburg a 1-0 lead. The Key wasted no time getting the run back. Cumberland singled to lead off the second and Cadyn Grenier walked to put runners and first and second with one-out. Hillman then induced what looked to be a groundball double-play, but Luke Wakamatsu threw wide of first base on the relay throw, allowing Cumberland to score and tie the game at 1-1. In the bottom of the inning, Mitch Reeves lined a pitch right back at Peralta which hit the starter’s throwing hand and knocked him out of the game. Scott Burke was called upon out of the pen and stranded Reeves at second to end the inning. Burke went on to throw four scoreless innings. He stranded two runners in scoring position in the fourth inning but only allowed three base-runners in his outing. Hillman was outstanding for the Hillcats. The southpaw through seven innings and struck out a career-best 10 batters. He allowed one unearned run on five hits. Riley Echols (3-1) took the loss after allowing the two-run home run to Cumberland. Cumberland clubbed the first pitch he saw beyond the right-field wall to give the Keys a 3-1 lead. It was his first home run in a Keys’ uniform. The Keys and Hillcats square off in a late afternoon game on Sunday, July 21. RHP Brenan Hanifee (6-9, 4.40) takes the mound for Frederick in his first start since he threw a complete-game shutout. First pitch for game one is scheduled 3:00pm, with pregame coverage starting at 2:45pm on frederickkeys.com and the Tune In radio app.  The Frederick Keys are the Advanced-A affiliate of the Baltimore Orioles, and play their home games at Nymeo Field at Harry Grove Stadium. Following the 2018 season, the Keys were named the winner of the Carolina League’s Complete Franchise Award. This goes to a team in the league which demonstrates franchise stability and significant contributions to its community and the league. In 2019, the team will host the Carolina League All-Star Classic presented by Visit Frederick.

    • McKenna Walks Off Curve, 7-6, in Extras Baysox win 13th straight series with win.   BOWIE, Md. – Ryan McKenna grounded a bases-loaded single in the 10th inning to complete a 7-6 comeback win over the Altoona Curve in front of 4,381 at Prince George's Stadium Saturday night.   After Dillon Tate tossed a scoreless 10th inning during his key 2 2/3 relief innings, Mason McCoy laid down a bunt in front of catcher Jason Delay. Pinch-runner T.J. Nichting beat the throw to third base, which set the stage for McKenna after an intentional walk to Cedric Mullins.   With the bases loaded and no one out, the left fielder grounded the first pitch from Curve pitcher Mark Eckelman through the right side of the drawn-in infield to seal the 13th straight Eastern League series victory.   McCoy got the Baysox (23-6) off and running with a run in the third inning to take a 1-0 lead. Jesse Valentin led off with a double down the right field line and advanced on a Stuart Levy single to left field. With one out, McCoy beat out a potential double play to drive in his 22nd run of the season.   The offense knocked Altoona starter Beau Sulser from the game with four consecutive hits in the fifth inning. Rylan Bannon led off with his eighth home run of the season and second in as many games. The opposite-field shot under the scoreboard in right-center field added an insurance run and increased the score to 2-0.   Preston Palmeiro hustled into second base two batters later with the second double in as many at-bats, scoring Valentin on RBI No. 31. Bowie has scored 10 runs in the fifth inning during the four-game series, and they tacked on one more run two batters after Palmeiro's double.   The second pitch of the night from reliever Blake Cederlind skipped to the backstop, allowing Palmeiro to score the third run of the frame. The hosts tacked on a fifth run in the sixth inning, thanks to the third double down the right field line from Valentin that plated Yusniel Diaz. The three doubles for Valentin tied a franchise record for most doubles in one game.   Altoona (15-13) scored four runs in the seventh inning and two runs in the eighth inning to take a 6-5 lead, but Diaz quickly shifted the momentum once again with solo rocket deep to left field. The team-leading 10th home run of the season for the right fielder was the first since July 4.    Despite the late rally effort, Alex Wells turned in another quality start in a no-decision. The lefty held the Curve to five hits and struck out a quartet over six scoreless innings for his 10thquality start, lowering his league-leading ERA to 1.83 in the process.   The series and homestand finale between the Curve and Baysox gets underway at 1:35 p.m. Fresh off his Tuesday night no-hitter, RHP Michael Baumann (2-1, 0.33 ERA) takes on LHP Sean Brady (3-8, 4.42 ERA) in the third game of the season as Los Cangrejos Fantasmas de Chesapeake.   Sunday is Salsa Sunday at the ballpark, where fans can learn how to dance the Latin American genre and take in live performances from local salsa dance troupes, thanks to Chesapeake Insurance.
