Machado Trade Expectations

Machado Trade Expectations  

287 members have voted

  1. 1. Regarding the return we receive, what are your expectations of whatever Machado trade takes place?

    • The return will be outstanding.
    • The return will be solid.
    • The return will be merely decent.
    • The return will be poor.
    • The return will be just terrible.
    • I expect we will not trade him at all, getting only a compensation pick in next year's draft.

I am holding tight on the idea that we won't trade him at all.  Comp pick.  I think we get reports that Angelos nixes deals that a fair amount of us would be overall pretty happy with.  

The poll is open to interpretation as viewing the return as outstanding, solid, decent, etc.  Had I picked one of those options it would be through the lens of trading him as a rental.  Outstanding return for a rental?

None whatsoever. He's not being moved.

I decided to be foolishly optimistic today and chose a "decent" return, but what probably happens is no trade at all. Maybe things have been shaken up due to the huge amount of light that has been shined into the warehouse that has exposed the dysfunction within that the FO will be shamed into dealing Machado, but I think most people will be disappointed with the returns if that happens. Just about anything is better than a comp pick, though.

Doubtful. Buck wanted one more shot. He got it at the expense of an additional year or two of malaise. Manny will be traded.

You're entitled to your opinion but no thanks to two or three middle of the road prospects. I would rather have a projectible first round draft pick in a year where we likely will end up with the #1 pick anyways. I simply don't see anyone in their right mind giving up a top 50 prospect for a two month rental.

If you believe that is why he wasn't traded in the offseason, you have been fooled. Buck wanted another shot and ran to Daddy.

You're new to this board  I see. If you were around here 6 months ago, many of us wanted one last shot, especially after Cobb and Cashner were signed. It hasn't worked out obviously and that's the way the ball bounces.

He won't be traded, but if he is, don't count on anything close to a haul.  I think we should be extremely happy with if we get a top 100 prospect. 

Take a look at what Detroit received at the deadline last year for J.D. Martinez.  Machado is having a better season so far, but I think our offers will all be in that ballpark, and we'll decline them all, for better or worse.

I said "Solid."  But that has to be put in context.  Solid today is not what it would have been if we made the trade after 2016.  For me it means that Duquette will make the best deal possible.

Just some ideas of where I think things will be based on the vibes out there right now. Please don't look at offseason season rankings for a guy's current value.

From STL: Austin Gomber, Harrison Bader, Elehuris Montero

From LAD: Mitchel White+Caleb Ferguson

From ARI: Taylor Widener+ Domingo Leyba+17/18 year old lottery piece

From CLE: Willi Castro+George Valera(this is going to seem light unless you really know your prospects, but these two guys have big upside especially Valera who is getting enormous hype as the next Juan Soto)

I'm sorry, I have to laugh at this!

Juan Soto has done great in the minors and now has had a great week in the majors.   But I don't think he has established himself as anything yet to the point where you can talk about there being a "next".   So many guys have had a great first week in the majors.

Don't get me wrong, I'd love to have Soto.   But when you are looking for the "next" something, you want someone you hope can duplicate a real success, not great portential with an extremely small sample size of ML success.

Ownership will want too much and no team will agree. So we get nothing. And Manny will not re-sign with this sinking ship. He wants to play with a winning team.

I have zero expectations because we don't know who will be approving any possible trade. If it is PA, it won't happen at all. If it is Louis and Brady approving then I think Dan will get the best decent offer he can. I think no matter what happens we finish last and get the #1 pick. the only question to me is whether what we are offered is better than a comp pick.

This isn't really much of a question.  A comp pick is worth maybe a team's 11-15th best prospect.  

Manny will certainly bring back more than that in a trade.  Multiple prospects inside an organization's top 10 and maybe a cost controlled major leaguer who would be worth much more than a comp pick on its own.  

So if they don't trade Manny I highly doubt the excuse can be that the return would have been worth less than the comp pick.

A disagree that a comp pick at the end of the first round is the equivalent to an 11-15 pick.  Pretty sure the end of the season top 10 lists almost always include first round picks from the previous draft.  Would have to be a stacked farm system for them to fall to 11 and I think 15 is never going to be the case.

    • Just don't give away tomatoes to the fans. 
    • I use cbd on occasion. It does seem to help me fall asleep, but doesn’t help with waking up wide awake a few hours later. 
    • I voted Mancini but I could have gone with Villar as well. I think Villar's lack of effort occasionally and base paths blunders is what shaded me towards Mancini for MVO. Saying that, if Villar did receive it I would not be upset as he clearly has the best WAR despite being forced to play out of position at SS a lot this year.
    • I think when he team is ready to win again if Davis is not preforming in a helpful manner then he  needs to go.   I don't see the O's being at that point yet.   Maybe in another year.    Players get hurt all the time.  As a bench player Davis can step in for them.   Also there are a lot of unproven players that the league may adjust to and they will may be sent down.  (see Mullins, not for Davis but because he is a example of an unproven player that needed to go down)    Davis may find playing time for those players also.   The 26th man makes it easier to keep Davis on the 26 man roster.
    • I have a lot of disconnected, disorganized thoughts on this subject.  I like Tony's suggestions, or at least the acknowledgment of the idea that there are alternate ways of developing players that might be more efficient or at least more cost-effective. A few points: - I've never thought that the current setup was optimal, but rather formed by a series of events more related to economics than player development.  In the beginning all minor league teams were just like major league teams except in small cities.  Only in the 1920s, and then accelerating in the 30s because of the Depression, did the majors start buying up the minors and turning them into development squads instead of teams trying to draw fans and win their pennant.  For 50+ years MLB teams didn't have any full-time affiliates.  That was probably less successful at wringing out all the talent, but MLB got along just fine.  The majors wanted to own the minors to keeps costs down.  They got tired of having to pay $100k for Lefty Grove after a protracted negotiation with Oriole owner Jack Dunn.  Much easier if they just owned Jack Dunn and all the rest of the Orioles. - I think one reason for the sprawling system we have today is MLB contracts, options, and related issues.  I think most good prospects would do just fine as part-time major league players at 20 or 22.  They spend that time in the minors because nobody wants to burn service time.  We've convinced ourselves that prospects would stall if they were utility infielders or relievers at 18 or 20.  But we don't know that, in fact we know many successful MLB players did just that in the pre-draft era, and some even became MLB stars as teenagers.  If service time wasn't a thing (for example, if everyone became a free agent at 28), I think lots of players would shoot through the minors in record time.  And there would be much less need for eight levels of affiliates. - Japan has one level of minors.  I don't know that this is seen as any kind of impediment to development.  Ichiro was in the NPB as a teenager.  They do have more teenagers in the NBP than we see in the US.  But they also don't get to free agency until something like eight or nine years in, so they don't care as much about service time. - Mexico, Korea, Taiwan, the rest of the world... no minors at all.  At least in any cases I know of.  Of course they top out at the equivalent of A or AA levels, so not quite the same.  But nobody else has the resources to have huge, sprawling development systems.  Maybe not optimal, but the world doesn't end when you regularly have 18-year-olds playing alongside 36-year-olds.
    • Obviously we are all hyper sensitive to any kind of soreness with Harvey. I do think this thing is bothering him still an the team wants to be ultra careful with him. At 75.2 IP, he is at twice the amount of innings that he threw in 2018 so he may be near the limit that they wanted to get him this year as well.  Honestly, I wouldn't be upset if they just came out and said they were going to shut him down this year. I have him penciled in as the closer next year and only an injury would get in the way of him having success in that role.
    • One, it's against board rules to call people including players and coaches idiots, so consider this your warning. Secondly, you do know that Harvey was a starter at the beginning of the year and had 10 games with 40 or more pitches. After converting to a reliever, he had two minor league innings where he threw 33 pitches in an inning and one in an inning and a third. Harvey is almost 25-years old. While I don't think anyone, including Hyde preferred that he stayed out there that long in one inning, I don't think Hyde was reckless or an idiot for doing so. If he's incapable of throwing a 30 pitch inning when things aren't going great, what is he then? I think your dislike for Hyde is clouding your judgement here. While you are certainly entitled to your opinion of not liking Hyde, you are not entitled to call him an idiot while doing so here on the Hangout.
