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.

Assuming Seager returns healthy, they have no more reason than MIL or CLE.

Machado is a clear upgrade at 3B over Turner.  Assuming Machado is willing to shift back to 3B.

With most teams using analytics now, any team making a big investment will want Manny to play 3B.

Manny will play SS wherever he lands except for NY.

He will have some say when he signs next year. He has no control this year and I don’t think it will matter to him long term. The SS demands are more to do about getting the most money. I’m sure Mannys people know he’s a GG 3rd basemen and a Soso defensive SS

I'd be surprised if we were able to get Haseley their #3 and Medina their #2.

if so I'd like Medina, Haseley, Suarez/De Los Santos, Irvin, and Bannon

otherwise 

Medina, Gamboa, Suarez , Irvin , and Muzzioti

I think you're going to be disappointed if you're expecting five players in return for Manny. When's the last time a single player was dealt for five prospects at the trade deadline?

I know Bedard and Tejada were each traded for five guys, but those weren't deadline deals, and each still had two full seasons left on their contracts.

I really do hate that people like Heyman can remain employed indefinitely by "reporting" vague, inconsequential nonsense. 

Heyman has two jobs, whichever one his normal one is plus what Boras pays him.

Think he meant for both Machado and Britton.

When someone on MLB Network presses him on anything, he immediately starts waffling.

It is annoying. Pretty impossible to tell if he's just throwing stuff at a wall or if it's legit. When he isn't the first one to report he just copies other people's stories and posts something based on what others are hearing.

Just hope he's right I guess.

I think you are mistaken. Manny really wants to play SS. It's more challenging and exciting to him. Next year all things being equal he will play for the team that wants him at SS. The money differences wont be all that great.

I’m guessing Fancred.com is not exactly paying him a fortune.

I don't know if anyone breached this idea or not, but it dawned on me that the Angelos family may be more inclined to trade Manny to the Phillies because it would make it more difficult for the Nats. I get the idea that with the MASN dispute etc. there is no love lost between the two franchises.

We were talking about Manny and Zach as a package deal to the Phillies, that's why it was five players.

    • Last series of the season, the homestretch, Lopez versus who cares? Go Os! Savor every hit and run, savor even the errors and the gaffes, because after Sunday, the sun sets until Pitchers & Catchers report...if they do. edit: and if you DO care, it’s Taiwan Walker flinging for the Jays.
    • Hays should be on the IL by then.
    • Eddie Gamboa did make the majors with the Rays in 2016 and Baseball Reference has him wearing an O's hat.  Does that count?
    • My guess: If they trade Cobb at the deadline they will already have paid 2/3s of his salary.   If Elias can dump half of Cobb's salary for a Dominican player that will probably never make the majors......he is gone. I don't know Elias plans for Diaz but if he think he will be promoted by some time in May he will need to find at bats for him.   Nunez  staying on a 30 homer pace means he could make 2 or 3 million in arbitration.   I don't see Elias paying that when he can replace him with a current O's prospect make less than 600K.   Alberto will be a one and a half years from FA in July.  So if someone makes an offer that gets Elias a good return Alberto  is gone.  Valaika is almost the same player.   Hit lefties but not righties.  Plays a decent 2B with some versatility.  And Valaika will be cheaper by a million or two. Davis probably stays on the 26 man roster so they can see if there is a work stoppage in the next two years that saves the O's part of his salary.   So the bench is Davis, a catcher, an outfielder and an infielder that can play SS well enough to backup Iglesias.   With Martin at AAA to start the season Elias has to go find that player.
