Recommended Posts

Don't mean to jinx them but TB pitchers have been PERFECT today. Pitching a PERFECT GAME.

We gave up Cashner for 2 17 year old kids. I don't get it. should have gotten way more than that.

Eshelman is fun to watch. His picture is next to the definition of junkballer in the dictionary, but he works fast, knows how to pitch and the command is mostly excellent

I’m at the game. It’s very hard to stay awake.

That's the hope, that they're REALLY good 17 year olds. Boston gave one of them $275,000. :noidea:

At least this game is moving fast.  

I always hope for long games. More time to watch baseball.

 

I get lots of baseball the next couple weeks. Going to day shift to learn a new machine.

 

6am... UGH!

Absolutely my favorite Pink song! I used to be able to play most of that.

Category A:  Some people are disappointed we couldn't get more.   Or that we didn't at least shop him around more to see if we could have gotten a bit more.  Even realizing there are more starting pitchers out there to be dealt with more value than Cashner, this seems like a pretty low haul.

Category B:  Faith that Elias & Sig wouldn't make a deal unless they got good value so they trust them.

Atomic:   We should be trading FOR guys like Cashner and maybe we can put together a team that can compete for the wild card next year.

I'm mostly in Category A, although I hold out hope that maybe Koby Perez saw something in these guys and they could turn out to be diamonds.    

I read most of the comments, and I think this is a good summary. While I wasn't counting, I think those in Category A are the clear majority.

Several posters were critical of Elias making trading Cashner so early, eliminating teams that will try but fail to acquire higher-value starters and might then lower their sights to Cashner later in the month.

    • 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.
