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.

Things might've turned out quite differently for 2015 and 2016 if the Orioles had signed Scherzer or Lester.  We made the ALCS with horrible starting pitching, and needed an ace.  Not only did we not get the ace, but we failed to replace Markakis or Cruz.  Adding an elite TORP, and things play out much more differently for 2015 and 2016.  

Umm, Tillman, Chen, Miggy, Norris, and Gausman we’re pretty good when we made the ALCS in 2014. Heck, Ubaldo even had a 4.81 ERA in 120IP.

Starting next year Scherzer will be getting 42 million a year for the next 3 seasons.   Can't blame the Orioles for not beating that.
