  1. I think it boils down to money. There's still a chance they resign him, but the situation doesn't seem to be trending in that direction. I think some damage was done when the offered him a huge extension a few years ago and he declined. It was rumored to be an 8 year / $200M deal (prior to 2017).
  2. ...and I'd argue that the additional two years in age (for Betts now) balance things out a bit. You could also argue that Machado being able to play shortstop (technically) made him a bit more valuable since there aren't as many 30+ HR shortstops as their are outfielders. Look, it's not a "perfect" comparison, but it's most certainly in the ballpark. And when the dust settles it should give us a better sense of how badly the Orioles did/or didn't mismanage the Machado situation.
  3. Now that the Red Sox seem inclined to trade Mookie Betts I'm really curious to see how things play out relation to how the Orioles handled the Manny Machado situation. It should really give us a great comparison since both players are the same age and roughly the same stature in terms of their skill level. I guess you could make the argument that Betts might be valued a bit more, but they're certainly close. Just something to monitor as the situation progresses.
  4. Is it though? I mean, the batting average and runs scored are nice, but the HRs and RBIs are pretty pedestrian in the era of the hitting shortstops. Definitely not a 1st ballet selection if you take away the celebrity / Yankee lore IMO.

  5. Trammell also didn't play in NYC...
  6. You might want to stock up on Pepto because I'm fairly certain that he's going to be...
  7. I understand your thinking, but unfortunately Dylan Bundy and Alex Cobb aren't no. 1 starters. If healthy they'd both be "at best" number 4 or 5 starters on that team. And if I was the Padres I'm not sure I'd view either one of them as a bonafide upgrade over who they already have slotted in their rotation. To make any of those trades they would have to want to dump Myers salary more than they want to improve their starting pitching. Givens to the Padres, on the other hand, probably makes more sense. Yates, Munoz, and Givens would be a pretty solid 1, 2, 3 punch out of the bullpen.
  8. This thread rages on, but no one has answered my question. If the Padres trade (or sign) a starting pitching it's going to be a top tier guy to help take to pressure off Paddack.
  9. They already tried that approach and it led to a decade of mediocrity.
  10. Even if he was senile, he's the one who chose to put those people in a position to influence him. I'm pretty sure he was still of sound mind and body when he fast tracked Brady for example.
  11. I like where you're going with this. If Chris Davis' batting average were a tree it would be a neglected bonsai.
  12. I don't know...I'm seen quite a few posts suggesting they sign FAs this offseason. If people honestly believe that's the right approach then they're not on board with the rebuild.
  13. Begs to mind the question. Who would win in a limbo contest? Rosenthal, the Orioles' payroll or Chris Davis' batting average?
  14. I have not problem with it (aside from cutting FanFest), but to be honest I'm sick of reading about other people complaining about it (i.e., suggesting we sign free agents, etc.) I'd much rather read joke-related content.
  15. The Orioles budget is tighter than the string on Fernando Rodney's imaginary bow.
