Os requesting offers on Machado

Recommended Posts

This list is kind of nuts.  Chances of trading him to Red Sox, Yankees, and Nationals are extraordinarily low. 

Angels farm system is not very good nor is the Mets.  Brewers are interesting and maybe Cleveland but only if they gave up a ton I think.

If you are going to lose him at the end of 2018 it's time to face the music.

 

If you can't get Bostons to cough up Devers,  Groome, Johnson, and Mata you do the deal. The article specifically mentions Devers I've added the rest.

If Boston gives up all that I'll personally drive Manny to the airport. 

If they give up Devers, I imagine thats all we get.  Groome would come with a guy closer to the MLB maybe like Johnson.

The Orioles will never do one for be on Machado. Even the article said Devers is a nice prospect but Manny is an elite player. Your getting 3-5 top end players for Manny if dealt. That's why the article suggest a contender whom is serious about a run at the World Series, willing to pay the price. 

If you think the Orioles are accepting a player or two your kidding yourself.

I think you are exactly right. And I think that is exactly why you have to trade Manny this off season. Now I don't think they will, I have never seen this FO do the right thing and I don't expect them to start now.

There are no known offers, and it would obviously take a ton for the Orioles to even consider moving such a superstar. The Yankees and Phillies are among many teams expected to have interest in Machado, who is eligible for free agency after the 2018 season – though the call list isn’t known.

About the Red Sox

 

Quote

Red SoxRafael Devers is a nice-looking young player and a highly ranked prospect. Machado is a legitimate MVP player, and if you're trying to win next season, which the Red Sox are trying to do, Machado would be the way to go at third.

How much is Manny worth for one year to a team who is not desperate realistically?

How much is Manny worth for two months to a team who is desperate realistically?

For these reasons, I do not see Manny being traded.  The time to get the kind of value they are probably looking for has passed.  They will take the 6 WAR season and the 20 percent shot of a playoff birth with him on a roster over the possible trade return.

Honestly not surprised this is emerging now. With the Orioles not scoring any of the 3 budget conscious starters which all made sense for them (Chatwood,Fiers,Mikolas), there's not a whole lot of targets out there that make sense unless the Orioles are ready to venture into the Lynn,Cobb market which would surprise pretty much everyone.

I think that Manny would have drawn that at the past deadline and even more last offseason.  He will not return that for a one year rental when teams know we are getting more and more desperate, imho.  They might as well keep him now because I think the return will be much less than what it could have been.

Yeah, all the other options are either too pricey to add more than one or not very good.  Perhaps they get creative with trades, I don't know, I hope they'll come to their senses and sell short term assets but I'm not holding my breath.

We are not trading him to the Red Sox unless it is more than a Bedard type return. 

The return @Roll Tide is suggesting is at least equal to the Bedard return if not more.  Jones was a top 30ish prospect who had already debuted, Devers is a top 20 prospect who has debuted.  Devers had a strong debut.  Groome and Tillman are comparable as 19yo top 100 pitching prospects.  The big difference is Bedard had 3 years of control, Manny has one.  That's why I don't think the Red Sox would even consider that, but what do I know.  The only thing I know for sure is if someone (no matter if it's the Yankees or the Red Sox) makes an offer like that, you'd be an absolute fool not to take it.

    • I think the NBA and NHL are handling this better as we aren't hearing this public bickering.  Really it doesn't help the players or the owners to argue about more on this.  It makes them look both greedy and harms the sports image in this time where most everyone is suffering in some way.  I don't really care how they divide up the money.  Just go in a room and get it done.    Both sides would lose with a shutdown with NBA and NHL starting in the middle of summer.   I am sure cable subscription numbers will be down due to thie economic reality of the situation.   They already have the shame of the cheating scandal. They want to back that up by not playing because of money?
    • I listened to Nick Sundberg on a podcast.  He is the player rep for the Redskins.  He shared a detail of the negotiations for the NFL.  He said that the owners proposed that if a player tests positive for COVID-19 they would go on a non football related injury list for a minimum of 14 days.  The problem is that, unlike injured reserve, the player doesn’t get paid when on the non football related injury list.  I’m curious as to how the MLB proposal handles this.
    • Just saw this little tidbit.    I didn’t know Bill Gates was an Orioles fan!  🤣
    • Look 8 straight 7+ WAR seasons may be good for you but it’s pretty thin from where I stand.
    • There are lots of ways to look at this situation. Here's mine. Most of the owners are highly successful business people (or their children), many of them entrepreneurs who build businesses from the ground up. Quite a few of them have MBAs, law degrees, or business degrees. I'm sure many of them have lots of passion for baseball; I know that at least a few go to a lot of their teams' games. But I think that whatever emotional attachment they feel to the sport has little if any effect on the way they approach decisions like the one they now confront -- it's a financial matter, to be analyzed pretty much like other major business decisions. These guys look at their teams predominantly, if not exclusively, from a financial point of view, just as they would if they owned a business that makes computer chips or sells office supplies or owns vacation resorts or whatever. Aside from wanting to build a winning team (which I think is pretty much irrelevant to the 2020 situation), they have two related objectives: making money from their investments in MLB, and maximizing the price they (or their heirs) will get when they decide to sell the team. From their financial perspective, both those goals require creating for MLB (and their individual teams) a business model that enables them to make money under a wide variety of foreseeable circumstances. And that's what they've done. The Forbes numbers, and the information about the sales of teams, says most teams are doing well. I've seen it said in a couple of places, though I can't remember where, that the owners have been on a roll. So here comes the pandemic, and it presents circumstances that won't allow teams operating under the regular business model to succeed. Many teams, maybe virtually all of them, are not going to make money if they have to pay the players their pro rata salaries, bear their normal expenses plus those of creating Covid test capacity and other safety measures, and don't sell tickets. The pandemic has put, and will continue to put, many businesses in a similar position: each owner of a restaurant or department store or theater has the right to decide whether to operate under less-than-optimal circumstances, stay closed while waiting things out, or fold 'em.  The same is true of MLB's owners (except that they aren't about to go out of business). From their point of view, there are two viable options: restructure things so that most of them can make some money, or forget it. The owners undoubtedly have in mind an amount of MLB payroll (maybe it's 60 percent of players' pro rata salaries) that will enable them to accomplish the first under conservative assumptions about other costs and revenues. If they can't get payroll down to that amount, or close to it, they won't open for business. Maybe that will harm baseball in the long run, but I don't think they care much about that, or that has much impact on their negotiating position.  I guess it's fair to say that the owners should feel an obligation to give us baseball this summer as a measure of their patriotism, even if that involves some financial sacrifice, or that the widespread public support of stadium construction for the benefit of many MLB teams imbues them with a some responsibility to serve the public, or that a league that enjoys protection from the antitrust laws shouldn't deprive the country of the only top-flight baseball in the country. I don't think the owners look at it that way. Their obligations are to themselves (and their stockholders or partners), just like in their other businesses. The barrier on the players' side is history. Over the past 50 years, they have accomplished impressive gains in salary and benefits. But the owners have never made it easy for them. They have forced the union and the players to make those gains slowly, over time, by litigating everything they could litigate. They have cheated and colluded to lower salaries whenever they could. Anyone can feel differently, but I can't say the players should agree to be paid less for 2020 (OK, maybe a little less) than what their contracts or the CBA calls for, much less agree to a completely different compensation system whose outcome will be unknowable for a while. Calling on the players to give up their legal rights in order to bail out the owners, because the owners might lose money for a change, has little appeal to me. The fundamental fact is that Major League Baseball operates on a highly structured, heavily negotiated arrangement between parties who don't trust each other. (Well, the union and players certainly don't trust the owners. I assume but don't know that the owners don't trust the union. I suppose the owners trust the players, but I bet more than a few of them resent the fact that they pay so much money to guys who, they assume, would never make it in the business world. (Some of them can't even speak English!)) I don't blame either side for the fact that the pandemic demolished baseball's financial arrangement for 2020. I'm saving my anger and name-calling it for the 2022 strike or lockout or work stoppage.
    • I agree. See Christian Laettner as another example at Duke. But he had to shut up and sit the bench on the Dream Team...lol Remains to be seen just how far he takes it, but I doubt it is anywhere near those two. That would be something the area scout would have to do his homework on. Elias will have that diagnosed. If you win, you're a leader. If you lose, you are a malcontent or ego maniacal because you hate losing. Martin has been a baseball player for along time, so I am sure his fire is tempered some. Its a game of failure, and that is what Jordan learned as a Birmingham Baron. It's very humbling. From what I have seen, Martin has the respect of his Vandy teammates. You have to have some Alphas on a winning team. Whether anyone likes them or not.
