Would you trade Means?

Recommended Posts

So what is the return difference between John Means and Matt Boyd, who every team seems to be interested in. Although Boyd has been in the league longer he has not been good.

You're not really old unless you remember Greg Ballard from the Washington Bullets.

...Or Kaye Ballard from the tv show "The Mothers-In-Law".  

I remember all the Ballards.

I don't think any teams are buying into John Means enough to give up anything significant. They definitely shouldn't be.

There's a pretty drastic difference in their peripherals.

FIP:

Means 3.93

Boyd 3.56

 

xFIP:

Means 5.14

Boyd 3.33

 

SIERA

Means 4.67

Boyd 3.17

 

K/9:

Means 7.51

Boyd 11.94

 

BB/9

Means 2.40

Boyd 1.68

 

Boyd's peripherals make his performance look a lot more sustainable

Just asking "Would you trade Means?" is an incomplete question without specifying what the return would be.

You would have to get something of reasonable value, given the fact that Means was a legitimate All-Star and a real ROY candidate. We've got 5 years of control after this, and if Elias is worth his salt we should be competing well within that window. 

A better question would be:  "What kind of return would it take for you to trade Means?"

    • Andrew Luck was dealing with chronic pain.  Chris Davis is injured and Luck is leaving zero guaranteed money on the table. NFL contracts are not guaranteed.
    • I was thinking about this today. How Chris's image would improve if he retired with a buyout agreement favorable to both parties.  Otherwise the general feeling of most people is he is stealing money from the Orioles who have made him a multi-millionaire. Hopefully his wife can get through to him and suggest at the end of the season he retire. I know this is unlikely with Scott Boras as his agent. Maybe Chris can explain to him his frustration with the game and his declining batting skills have caused him to make this decision.
    • This guy is on fire.....I'm wondering if the guys that said he'd be Nontendered this offseason are ready to eat crow?? C'mon gents, we know who you are!
    • I thought I read something about 80 million from MASN a while back. Even with Davis, Cobb, and Trumbo contracts the Os are making a pretty hefty profit just on the national and MASN deals.   So even if the number 0nly 110-120 million in revenue between the 2 deals ...the payroll is only 72 million and certain to ge less next year. A 40 million surplus times 2
    • When I lived in L.A. and often went down the block to Mexican taco and burrito vans for dinner, cabeza was one of my favorites.
    • I was at the Shorebirds vs my hometown Hagerstown Suns where 3,106 showed up for a Low A baseball doubleheader featuring a Mike Mussina bobble head for the first 1,000 fans (unfortunately I was in the 2,106 who didn’t get one).  Of course game one also had Grayson Rodriquez pitching to Adley Rutchman.  I will stick to attendance in this thread and say that the orange and black dominated the crowd in this Nationals affiliate’s park.   Not sure how long the rebuild will take but there is definitely some excitement for the future out here in the hinterlands.
