Being a 4th OF in Philadelphia isn't a good option for a player still trying to get a contract next year either.

Would that 2 months in Philly (assuming October) really hurt him that much relative to playing 41 more games in the abyss here?  I guess that is impossible to quantify.  But, you have a chance to compete for a title.....and if you hit well, especially in October, the manager will find a way to get you in the lineup even without a DH option (it isn't like Philly's current outfield is that good now). 

Money pays the bills, I know.  But as a player how many more chances will you have at this point to go for a ring?

Adam seems to have two benefits to finishing the season here, as far as his next contract is concerned.  1.) Capability to play RF  2.) Ability to serve as a mentor.  I bet it caught other teams' attention how professional he was in the transition to Mullins playing CF.  If the Orioles don't offer him a deal this off-season of sufficient number of years, other teams would surely appreciate the professionalism and mentoring, and it could net him the contract he desires.

Jonesy should go to PHI or CLE and try to win a ring! I'm imaging in that DD is checking in with him again now that he's cleared waivers. 

If DD is the GM, I don't believe the O's will offer Jones a contract for next year. 

Maybe if Jones is sitting around in March, we offer him a 1-year, 3 million dollar deal a la Chris Tillman. Is Tillman dominating in TX yet?

It could probably net him a contract, but probably not the one he desires.

So we can gather that we wont get much of a prospect back and will also have to eat a chunk of his salary.  Noone claimed him because they figured the Orioles would just let him go and put the contract on the team to save money.

Shocking he’d stay here on this wreck rather they go to a guaranteed playoff team (Cle) or at least be in contention.

No one claimed him because he has 10/5 status and can refuse.

I think he wants to play everyday - and that isn't a guarantee on another team. I also think he values the impact he's been able to make on this city on and off the field.

DD's language definitely alludes to the fact he doesn't want to sign Jones to a new deal. But, if we know anything about the Orioles Front Office - it is that there are many actors with constantly changing levels of influence in decision-making.

Dan didn't want to sign Davis either.

But, someone could have blocked a trade to another contender.  Yankees need an outfielder (Judge injured).  Cleveland needs an outfielder (everyone injured).  One of them could, conceivably, have blocked the other, as an example.  Obviously, neither saw value there though.

I don't think that happens that often.

One thing that stuck out at me in the MLBTR piece about Heyman's article was that Jones had discussions with MacPhail and Klentak with the Phillies regarding their planned playing time for him and they told him approximately 4 games a week.  This tells me that just maybe he isn't dead-set against being traded, and that perhaps a contending team that plans on starting him would meet his approval.

    • I didn't care for his last two.  To me Morning Phase was going over the same ground Sea Change did and Colors sounded like someone following trends, not starting them. 
    • Agreed. Well past there prime / peak. In the 90s though I feel like they were probably a band that could sell out the 9:30 Club. 
    • It's hilarious how people keep pushing the Orioles' line that their was nothing worth signing when the teams we traded slot money found people they thought were worth signing.
    • Can someone help Interloper out here?  He's says I'm on record saying cheap international guys are "trash" and evidently not wanting the team to sign them.  I don't recall ever saying the O's shouldn't sign guys (unless you count me thinking Gaston was a likely bust). Did I ever make a post saying the that lower end signees were "trash" and that the O's shouldn't sign them?  Does anyone other than Interloper remember that happening?
    • I would agree with you about a typical wet behind the ears prospect, but I'm talking about Lowther.  Lowther seems to be an exceptionally bright pitcher who knows how to pitch.  In AAA, he would be learning to get AAA batters out.  AAA is loaded with older organizational type players who aren't good enough for the majors.  What works on them won't work on quality major leagues.  He needs to learn how to get major leaguers out, and I think the best - and perhaps only - way to do that is to face them.  At some point, ya gotta go through the trials of being a rookie, and I don't see the point in waiting in his case.  You guys call that rushing him; I disagree - fwiw.           
    • One reason would be keeping it so the team had more information about their financial flexibility as far as what they could offer than the player’s advisors/agents. Maintaining that information gap could be somewhat advantageous. The other being amplifying the PR campaign by announcing the core of the draft class all at once.
    • True, I’m trying to be aware of the rarity of a pitcher who throws cutters as their primary pitch making it though. I was also pretty disappointed that his velocity didn’t really tick up in relief last year, kinda screwed up the future profile I had in mind.
