Machado Trade Expectations

Machado Trade Expectations

  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.

Odds are we end up with four Juan Bells if we can't get May as the second guy. Diaz is fourth and May 10th on their list - that seems reasonable to me for a guy who could help you win the World Series.

I think many folks here are quoting various lists and often these references to rankings were based in the pre-season.  Ask most scouts who the Top 10 Dodgers prospects are right now, and that list would look much different.  Verdugo may no longer qualify, so Diaz may be #1 now, and May could be as high as 2nd/3rd.

I'm remodeling a kitchen. Any help would be greatly appreciated. If you guys want something to do.

Believe me, you wouldn’t want my help.    There’s a reason I’m practicing law rather than carrying a tool belt.    I’m competent at the former and completely incompetent on the home repair/maintenance front.

Don't know if this means anything but on mlb.com top 30 prospects list for the Dodgers it has Ruiz, Diaz and Heredia as temporarily inactive where it says team and D. Santana has a blank for team.

That has already been mentioned on here.  Players that were in the futures gams show as inactive.

Does Brady have to put the players thru a series of lifting drills before he signs off on the trade pieces.

You're making sense! If the Phillies offered Medina - I'm guessing the Dodgers offer must have some good stuff to make it better, since Diaz and Medina are apparently comparable. I know the Orioles really wanted May, so perhaps that's what pushed it over the edge.

I think there is a decent gulf between Diaz and Medina - though both might still have overall 55 ratings. 

Folks classifying the remaining guys coming over with Diaz as "throw ins", "rule V guys" and generally disappointing prospects are really casting an unnecessary negative pall over this trade and severely playing down the capabilities of the few names mentioned as being among the additional guys.

Wasn't some of that for the Future's game?

Also, I would do a straight 1 for 1 trade of Manny for Diaz. Diaz will literally be one of our top 3 prospects instantaneously.

I'd be curious if Brady and John Angelos get credit if the Machado trade includes Diaz and May on this forum. 🤷‍♂️

I don't think anyone knows who is responsible for what, though word is DD has been the guy handling the negotiations.

Just to be clear a lot of the guys mentioned in this thread are not rule 5 guys.  A player would have to be drafted or signed before July 2014 in order to have to be on 40 man or be avaiable for rule 5.  Jackson was drafted in 2015 so not a rule 5 guy.  Alverez was signed in 2015 not a rule 5 guy either.  Rios was drafted in 2015 not a rule 5 potential guy either.  Ruiz is a a guy that needs protected,

While we're sitting around waiting to see how the Orioles screw this up, let's throw this out there...

What if we got Breaking News that the Orioles have resigned Manny to a 10 year, 350 million dollar deal.  Would you rather this scenario to the trade?

    • 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.
