I wonder if everybody would be totally upset if he (Dan Duquette) traded Mancini for a competitive balance pick??  He became expendable with both Chris Davis and Mark Trumbo on this team.  How about both him and Walker get moved for two different  teams Competitive Balance picks???

Not everyone, you can never get anyone here to agree.  ;)

I'd dump Walker for a type B pick in a heartbeat.  Mancini you would have to give me a type A.

You can do better than that. It's a success if the pick turns out to be as good as Mancini. He's more valuable than the pick.

I look at it this way, Sedlock was taken at around the same spot as a type A competitive balance pick.  Months later Sedlock is the #1 or 2 prospect in the O's system.  Mancini might be in the top 5.

How is Mancini worth more than the pick?

Picks can't be traded until the start of the season right?  

 

Trade the player (Walker and Mancini) for future considerations.  Happens all the time.  Clears two spots on the forty to sign/trade for player that we will actually use and allows the two traded players the time in ST with their new ball club.

A bird in the hand (a guy who has succeeded in the minors and is major league ready) is worth more than two in the bush (a more highly regarded prospect who has to run the gauntlet of the minors for a couple of years)?    That's the only logic I see.    But when we don't have room for the 'ready' guy, that logic doesn't apply.

    • That doesn't sound possible.  The bat sliver hit him in the eye all the way at first base? I need to find some video of that.
    • Thanks. I think of the Padres as being built on more of an sort-of ad hoc basis, through trades and free agent signings more than high draft picks, all backed by a decision to loosen the purse strings the last couple of years. But that's just a vague impression. Since having no first-round draft pick in 2015, they have picked 8th/24th/5th (three picks), 3rd, 7th, 6th and 8th, and I don't see any of their first-round picks on the 25-man roster yet. (C.J. Abrams is in the system, and there are probably others.) I will take a closer look when I get a chance. , 
    • That seems like a good reason to try Lopez as a reliever this season.   When Means, Zimmermann, Kremer, Akin and Lowther are all healthy the O's could put Lopez in the pen and see  how he does. With what we have seen so far I don't think the O's protect him this off season if he does not improve. Some pitchers improve when the game is on the line.  Lopez does not seem to raise to the occasion  as often as he needs to.
    • Urshela just hit into a double play where he splintered his bat.  He jogged to first when a small part of the bat that shattered hit him in his eye.    It may not be the Yankees year.  
    • Torres and LeMahieu are the keys for NYY. 
    • I think some of Lopez’s recent struggles early on may have to do with the constant talk about his struggles in the 5th.  Early on he seemed to come blazing out to start the game but as it got later on his stuff decreased as it look like he was tired.  This can easily make a younger pitchers (Lopez more experience then age) to possibly throttle back some to get deeper in games as they would want to go in the 6th or 7th. There is no way I would let Lopez and his arm go without giving he bullpen opportunities first.  Andrew Miller was this type of pitcher as a starter, great fastball and stuff, but just was not a good starter.  When he went to the pen everything changed the same with Britton.  I think every team tries to keep certain guys in the rotation if they have 3 or 4 pitches and they just don’t succeed as a starter but wait to long to try them in the pen.  After about 200-300  or so inning in the majors and you not seeing improvements as a starter try him the the pen stop trying to put a circle into a square peg.
