MANCINI TRADE (Sideline Speculative Possibilities)

I am so afraid of a Mancini for Bruce and Reed trade.  That is exactly the kind of trade that Duquette would pull off to try and save this sinking ship.  He would probably include some other pieces as well.

That'd be real bad.

Because he's a 1B/DH and he's 25 years old - not enough of a track record of success  to be considered low risk and not young enough to be considered a high reward.

This claim is meritless. Last season the average age of a rookie was 24.5. Mancini just turned 25 before opening day. Moreover, it's what he would do after the trade that counts as the reward. If he were to hit .280 with 30 doubles and 30 homers per year for six years, any team would see that as high reward, regardless of his position.

Did the Orioles not receive a "high reward" when they traded for 30 year old Frank Robinson?

Roy sees it: Mancini has one of the most beautiful right-handed swings in all of baseball. He's a natural hitter whose MLB production should far exceed the expectations based on his minor league stats. He definitely has done so thus far.

LOL at trading a 6 year! cost controlled asset who is producing at an AS level. There is a better chance of Angelos selling the team tomorrow. 

True. Though I can't wait until Plank buys the team!

But who needs a 1B long term? 

Mariners - Currently playing Danny Valenica. They don't match up prospect wise. 

Mets  - Possible if Duda walks. They have 3 short stops in their top 10 prospects. 

Pirates - If they ever give up on Bell. They have a bunch of infield prospects in their top 30.

Rockies - Reynolds is a free agent. I'd target Ryan Mcmahon personally. 

Yankees - Possible but they don't really match up prospectwise. 

I don't really support trading Mancini but if they did I would only be ok with it if they got major league ready SS or 3B

The Yankees have exactly what we should be looking for in a trade with them and are desperate for a 1st baseman they are signing guys below the dumpster.   They have a young SS that has no place to play with the Torress there.   They also have some young pitching.    I would move Mancini for a package centered around Jorge Mateo and a pitcher around their top 10-15.

Trumbo for Tyler Wade
