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

    • Lions released Jamie Collins.  Wonder if the Ravens will be interested.
    • Syndergaard is no Stroman, but he could make a comeback and will obviously be much cheaper and therefore much more realistic - especially considering Stroman is a NYer, and the Mets undoubtedly want him back.  Noah is scheduled to make his MLB comeback tonight - probably just an inning - from the UCL tear - so he's basically missed 2 years - but he did pitch 197 innings the year before.  High risk but high reward.  Just turned 29, but the hair may be past its prime.     
    • Gametime:  7:05 pm Forecast:  mid 70s, there have been on and off light showers during the day and there could be a few tonight, but very minor Roster Move:  Bruce Zimmermann is coming off the 60 day IL to start.  Corresponding roster move has yet to be announced.

    • If going budget on 3B enabled us to get a Stroman/Gausman/Gray/Desclafini would you reconsider on Bryant? Highly doubt we're getting both. 
    • Well this to me explains it. Some seriously low OBP's on this team. 
    • I hate it too…but I think Stroman could be an exception to the rule because of how he pitches. I worry less about him wearing down vs a power arm. But we aren’t going to sign the perfect player.  FA doesn’t allow for that.  At some point, risks have to be taken.  It’s just a matter of mitigating the risks as much as possible.
    • I listen to a few podcasts and I think the O's have gone to great lengths to teach good swing decisions. Swinging at a low/away slider on the first pitch of an AB might be a bad swing decision in their eyes even if it's a strike. That approach will lead to better contact, but also deeper counts and thus more k's and walks. I think we view the k rate as the tradeoff to better contact when we actually swing, so I would expect it to be relatively high.
