O's Offer to Davis Off the Table

Recommended Posts

Not sure why we would put a 7 year offer back out there either.

Even if it's CD or Boras"s fault, it is hard to offer a lesser contract in negotiations. In some ways it would be considered bad faith negotiations. That doesn't mean there can't be trade offs. I don't think 5/110 would fly, it should, but you don't want an unhappy ball player thinking he got screwed, despite being the screwee.

I agree with your post which is why Davis will either come back at the original 7/154M offer or not at all. I do think the Orioles goofed by not gauging the market correctly on Davis. I want them to be proactive but they messed up on this one. Still, I would love the O's to publicly drop their offer to 5/100M and see what happens.

Suppose Davis were to make it known that he'd consider a one year deal. How many teams would suddenly become interested and how much would he be offered?

Many teams would be interested. $25-30 million I would think. Unfortunately for him, the CBA prevents negotiating a clause to not offer a QO so he would end up in the same position and a year older next year.

Cespedes managed it.

BOS, TOR, DET, CHW, HOU, and MFY could be in the market for a 1B/DH.

Chris Davis was a non tender possibility last year. His value right now could be the highest it will ever be again. A one year contract would be a huge risk that would make no sense.

Didn't his contract call for him to be released. Hence a QO couldn't be offered. And it was likely tied to him technically not being eligible for FA?

Not according to Cots.

    • No, at the end of the day Villar put up a 4 win season.
    • One of the two. Both would be extremely optimistic. Even though the Reds have a weak game system and Villar seems like a really good fit.  Tendering Villar is an easy choice. It might take some stones, but not really.  We’re just going to have to see what happens with Didi.  At the end of the day Villar is a 4 WAR SS.  For any team out there looking for a SS, would you rather have Villar for 1/10 or Gregorious for at least 3/42?  That’s if the Yankees don’t want to bring Didi back, or then you have to outbid them. That’s also if you can attract a FA to your team. 
    • Yes — pretty sad.   
    • The one that stands out to me is that a guy primarily used in relief accumulated the most WAR among the pitchers.
    • Cumulative totals Record: 755-865 Runs scored: 7,034 Runs allowed: 7,774 Pythagorean record: 729-891 Most games played:  Adam Jones 1,362 Most plate appearances: Adam Jones, 5,808 Most hits: Adam Jones, 1,521 Most home runs: Chris Davis, 253 Highest WAR: Manny Machado, 31.0. Most innings: Chris Tillman, 1080 Most starts: Chris Tillman, 193 Most wins: Chris Tillman, 72 Most appearances: Darren O’Day, 391 Most saves: Zach Britton, 139 Highest pitcher WAR: Zach Britton, 13.7  
    • Juvier had a 6-89 stretch in the equivalent league as Delmarva.  Still I wouldn’t be against it.  Here’s some other SS available Reds: Alfredo Rodriguez, SS (No. 18) - The Reds gave Rodriguez $7 million to sign out of Cuba in 2016 with the hopes he’d be their future big league shortstop. He could defend in the big leagues right now, but he hasn’t hit consistently. There’s little impact with the bat, though he is coming off his best offensive season, hitting .286/.325/.347 in Double-A to earn a late promotion up a level. Angels: Leonardo Rivas, SS/2B (No. 25) - Rivas can run and he can defend, and he even added the outfield to his resume in 2019. Speed and versatility is a combination that can make for an intriguing Rule 5 pick, but he’s struggled to hit consistently (.252/.380/.362), albeit with solid on-base skills From https://www.mlb.com/news/top-prospects-in-the-2019-rule-5-draft?t=mlb-pipeline-coverage
    • List of some of the available Rule 5 players.  The list offers explanations of why guys were unprotected, https://www.mlb.com/news/top-prospects-in-the-2019-rule-5-draft?t=mlb-pipeline-coverage  - Zach Brown was his stuff and command decline all while nearly doubling his BB/9 - Juvier had a 6-89 stretch over 25 games in A ball.  After reading some more I think I’d want Jordan Sheffield then have us take two fliers on position players. I like a couple of the defense first SS that played in AA but have questions about their bat. Just going with the theory that they didn’t get to play with the juiced ball and they can at least handle the position defensively.  My wish list would be, - Dodgers: Jordan Sheffield, RHP (No. 26) - Reds: Alfredo Rodriguez, SS (No. 18) - The Reds gave Rodriguez $7 million to sign out of Cuba in 2016 with the hopes he’d be their future big league shortstop - One of the 3B, COF bats available. Santana from LAD or Moises Gomez from TB.
