  1. 1. What trade return do you expect for Zach Britton?

    • The return will be outstanding
    • The return will be solid
    • The return will be merely decent
    • The return will comparable to Colin Moran: low OBP, below average power, poor fielder with a limited future in MLB
    • The return will be worse than Colin Moran
    • The Orioles will not trade Britton and will not receive a compensation pick since there is no chance they will QO him.

Amaya is, and Marquez looks to be on that way with great stuff. Top 100 prospect standing for 19 year olds is not how I value then. If you think a 19 yr old displaying that offensive ability while being heralded like he is defensively isn't a great piece than idk what to say.

I agree that Amaya/Marquez makes for a quality package and I am not sure bidding is beyond that at this point, but it sounds from reports that the bidding is getting beyond what the Cubs can or will offer.  It would be nice to hear names from Hou and NYY.

Agreed.

Just saying Amaya is a legit centerpiece candidate.

Perfect. You always want the Yankees and sawx involved in any bidding war. Just to drive the price up. 

This really is reaching a nice crescendo.  Glad we did not deal him as soon as possible as advocated by quite a few here.  Our FO has played this out very well.  

Now we just need a team to go a little crazy in this bidding war.  Boston is not a deep system and not particularly strong at the top though they have plenty of 18/19 year old lottery tickets.  IMO, there are only two headliners for Boston - Groome - who is injured - and Chavis.  Hmm....

Jives with Ken's report that it's a four hourse race between BOS, NYY, CHC, and HOU.

Just seems like it's gotta be the Astros, especially if they've sweetened their offer in the last day or two.

I know the Yankees supposedly did as well, but what does that mean for them? They actually included one real prospect? Not just Brandon Drury straight up?

Yankees with Drury and the rules 5 we took this spring, is more than a fair deal.

 

 

Drury is already headed into his arbitration years. I'm not sure why we would want him.

    • I'm confused, is Harvey hurt right now?
    • Bundy is a decent comp, but he's been able to log innings at a consistent rate since his Tommy John.  Harvey seemingly can't go 10 innings without having tightness in his arm or something and having to be shut down.  He had to be shut down last year, he had to be shut down this year.  I'm too lazy to look up his entire injury history but I don't have any confidence that he can throw a lot of innings out of the bullpen without having issues.   But Bundy's arm isn't Harvey's arm.  They're two separate entities and should be treated as such.  Comping injury probability is tricky because everyone has different DNA, everyone has different issues.  
    • So you think a platoon of Valaika (-0.1 rWAR this year, -0.6 rWAR last year) and Wilkerson (-1.0 rWAR last year and taken off the 40-man roster this year) would outperform Alberto (0.4 rWAR this year, 2.9 rWAR last year)?     I recognize they might improve their numbers in a platoon situation, but I don’t think it’s very likely they would increase them by enough to outperform Alberto, and of course you’d have to use two roster spots to do it.    As to finding someone better on the waiver wire or a cheap purchase, I asked who you wanted and don’t have an answer.     What this comes down to is you don’t think Alberto is as good as his WAR figures say he is, because he’s had bad splits vs. RHP the last two years.    We simply disagree about that.    I think the numbers have been a fair reflection of Alberto’s value.    I’d peg him as a 1-2 WAR player for next year, and at $3 mm, that’s not bad.    As to Bannon (also mentioned by SG and Philip), I am interested in him long term but he’s had very little AAA experience (20 games), struggled in the AFL last fall and wasn’t given a 60-man roster spot this year so I doubt the team is ready to roll the dice on him     It’s a shame the minor league season wasn’t played, because if it had he’d either be in the majors right now or at least we’d know more about whether we could pencil him in for 2021.
    • He hasn't. That doesn't mean he can't. No point in being doom and gloom about it. Look at Bundy. He was never what he once was but he has gone on to a productive career. There is all the more reason to think that could be the case with Harvey due to the freakish and unrelated nature of several of the injuries. 
    • Agreed. Ruiz isn't good enough though, so I'd move Alberto to 3B and sign Schoop (or someone similar) to play 2B.
    • Sums it up perfectly. As tantalizing as he is, as good as his stuff is, I really don't see the need to keep giving him chances.  And I'm sure that the trade value is low, it's not like we're the only ones who understand what's going on with him but we need guys that can stay healthy.  Unfortunately, he can't.
    • I didn’t see it but I like that he threw 72% of his pitches for strikes and that he had a swingstr% over 20%.
