  1. If you go back to 2017 MLB shows Lakins as nbr 12.
  2. Good to have someone being the eyes of the young O's. Very good write up. Also like to give a shoutout to the O's team that drafted this core.
  3. Yes, however Chris has played 3rd base in the majors.
  4. A new ideal: If the O's are going to keep Chris Davis and are looking like a last place finish that is trying to get first place draft pick, than put C D at 3rd base. Is he that much of a downgrade from Ruiz?
  5. I think Luke liked Nate Orf 1 yr or 2 ago as a rule 5 pick.
  6. Why not just buy him out... Per Cots he is owed 17 mil for the next 3 yrs for 51 mil and then 42 mil over the next 15 yrs for a total of 18 yrs/93 mil. Make him a F/A (giving him 3 yrs of freedom in his early 30's). Divide 93 mil by 18ys and you get 5.1667 per year. Chris gets all his money plus 3 yrs of time off in the buyout. The O's get him off the 40/25 man rosters and save 11.84 mil a yr for 3 yrs.
  7. The Dodgers have used it at least three times on large contracts for luxury tax reasons. 1-Red Sox (goes back a couple years), 2-aquire Matt Kemp from Atl (I think Atl released 1 or 2 players) and with Reds for Homer Bailey who they released the next day.
  8. Question: per Cot's the 23 mil should be for luxury tax. Chris will be paid 17 mil per year for the next 3 yrs, then 42 mil spread over 15 yrs.
  9. I don't think I have seen this posted, at least in this way. Per Cot's Davis is owed 101 mil over the next 18.5 years. 59.5 mil over the next 3.5 yrs (paid 17 mil per yr) 35.0 mil over 10 yrs (3.5 mil as deferred money) 7.0 mil over 5 yrs (1.4 mil as deferred money) My suggestion..Give him F/A NOW and pay him: 17 mil this yr ONLY and 5.166 mil a yr for 18 yrs. He gets all his money and becomes a F/A now. The O's get him off the 25/40 man roster and save 11.8 mil per year for the next 3 yrs.
  10. I think this is the largest list of players that is being talked about that need to be added/protected. A possible sign that we are slowly getting better and deeper in the minors.
  11. I like options 1..5..and 6.
  12. I would like to go with a lesser amount. However, IF three teams are interested, I think the O's have to over pay some.
  13. OK-Going against the tide on this. Signe him for 1/5 mil. This is a risk/reward situation for the O's. Dan will not move the needle. Is Dan a great pitcher: NO. Is he a good pitcher. What is good? RISKS: Pay/lose 5 mil for a year. Pitches worst in the A/L East. AWARDS: Has one more year of control for 2020. Could be traded at the deadline and then only cost 2.5 mil (approx.). Could/would allow the O's to trade Cobb and or Cashner easier. For 2020 both Trumbo and Cashner's contracts are done. Cashner needs 207 inns for his option to vest. We have only two players contracts for 2020, with (at now) 35 mil payroll for the team in 2020. We have 11 players that are arbitration eligible for 2020. Villar , Bundy and Givens are the highest. Lastly I think it shows the team and the fans that we are trying to improve (small steps)
  14. I think one of the big reason for the avg salary drop, is players like Adam Jones going from 17 mil a year to 3 mil a year.
