Miami also got Rea (who is now on the DL) - however, this point is well taken. :thumbsup1:

The Mariners are the best thing that happened to the Orioles (Tillman, Jones, Trumbo, and now Miley). lol

Yeah, we are the Mariners' daddy when it comes to trading.

My only complaint with this trade is that we didn't try Matusz back in the rotation these last 3 years when we've kept running expensive awful vets out there. Me may not have had to resort to taking on salary like this for a mediocre lefty starter if we'd let Matusz become that for us. Oh well ...

The same Matusz that the Cubs just released, after he was shelled?

I was going to say...his technology choice seems like his development philosophy. Stuck in the 90s.

We basically got a guy that will give us Wei yen Chen level production for 1.3 yrs and 11 million. With the option of making it 2.3/23 million.

I liked what I saw with Miranda. But he's already 27, Miley is 29. Miley has pitched 190+ IP every year since his rookie year. Miranda pitched 2 innings on a team that needed LH pitching all year. I think we won this big time.

If Miley is as good for us as Chen was the last two season it's a big win for the O's. However, over the last two seasons his era is 1 to 1.5 higher than Chen's.

His next year and a third will be better than Chen's.

"Wade Miley doesn?t ooze excitement or flash, and at this point he is what he is: a mid-velo lefty who relies on changing speeds and big breaking stuff in order to get outs. Essentially, he?s more or less already what the Orioles have, but from the left side. He isn?t a big strikeout guy (17.5%) who doesn?t walk a lot batters either (7.1%), and despite being around the plate, he works with an abundance average stuff. As Fangraph?s Jeff Sullivan so affably wrote, Miley soaks up innings, but there isn?t anything extraordinary about it. Evidenced by his 122 ERA-, Miley?s had a tough go of it in 2016, but as of late, he?s shown the Orioles a means of pivoting his struggles, somewhat.

Prior to July, Miley had amassed a 5.76 ERA, the result of an opponent .282/.340/.475 slash. As comes with the territory, Miley?s primary struggles resulted from extensive right-handed damage. Overall, the 18 home runs Miley?s given up on the year, 15 have been hit by those from the conventional side of the plate. Miley, reliant upon disguising balls as strikes, left a lot of easy breaking balls pitches and changeups in the strike zone to righties."

    • I don't know what to say without seeing him, but I doubt he is protected. And even if he is picked, I doubt he would stick for the entire year. That said, if he really has turned some corners, then there is room. It may be at the expense of another prospect, though. 
    • Not sure if this was posted elsewhere, but I didn’t see it. Was two weeks before this thread.  
    • And the Rays announcers are really good. Much better than the buffoons who chatter during Os games
    • This is a really gripping series. I’ve never been so engaged by two teams I don’t really care about... although I want the Rays to win, of course. The Dodgers and Nats are the evil children of the NL.
    • It is in the last 30 seconds of this 50-minute podcast, but FWIW they had the Hartford (Rockies AA) play by play guy as a guest Nevin expert, and skimming Vavra at the end he said he thought Vavra would have had a good chance to make the Yard Goats this year (i.e., do the Low-A to AA double bump in 2020). The other Nevin nuggets were August 2019 Eastern League Player of the Month, and giving the near 1B only 2019 positional context as in part being driven by having Colton Welker as a teammate.    
    • Nice to hear the tidbits on Baumler from the Instructional League.  I know folks are going to point out the nature of what is reported is overwhelmingly positive, and they are right, of course.  Still, this last draft was performed with heavy analytics and without in person or in competition video for the spring 2020 season in college and HS baseball and without in-person workouts.  IMO, the positive comments are an early vindication of our draft strategy and the two HS prospects we invested big $ in with the expectation that they were essentially second or third round talents.  The early word from various quotes from Matt Blood is that Mayo and Baumler are who we thought/hoped they were or better. 
    • I don't see him getting picked.  Do we have the space on the 40 man for him?
