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.

Urias would be a nice centerpiece on pure talent, but that plunges you immediately into Schoop drama as I believe he is 2B only.

What drama? Trade him.

The drama of he's the franchise player of the re-tooled 2019 Orioles.  Until we see the Machado trade return and whether there are more trades of players who could be good in 2019, the possibility can't be dismissed leadership looks at this year as the exception and not the rule.  Gausman's fastball is back, Cobb will have a spring - we have a rotation, lots of younger legs, know now not to let Davis play, Adam Jones will only be $9M not $17M and in a corner, etc.

This is also a bad moment for Schoop, and Gennett would be a formidable rival in the 2B trade market even if we were sure the club's intent is to go beyond the expiring contracts.

I must be confused. Schoop is now a franchise player? Or, will be after Machado is gone? 

Yeah, not buying it.

How about after he demands to play short next year?  Will you be feeling it?

That would show initiative! But no, I won’t.

Same exact situation as this year! But who saw it coming?!

And from Buster Olney 4 hours ago on Twitter:

There is an expectation among other teams that the Diamondbacks will be among the most aggressive in the trade market, because 2018 presents perhaps their best opportunity for foreseeable future to win the NL West. They could be the Machado frontrunners.

Hope this guy is right and I'm wrong, but these returns all seem unrealistically high to me.

Agreed.  Pavin Smith would be a big pick up, but of course the Orioles have Davis locked in at first for the next five years.  Devers plus would be great of course, but also seems unrealistic.  The Cubs package seemed reasonable though, as did the Indians.

If he doesn't start hitting he can play Short in the minors next year.  He has a .601 OPS.  If he continues at his current pace I don't offer arbitration and he can go on his way to be a utility infielder for some team

The Cubs package seems very light to me.

I agree. Maybe I'm in the minority, but Russell doesn't seem good enough to be the main piece of a trade with the Cubs. I'd ask for him AND Happ, even if that meant including a bullpen arm like Brach.

    • People (including me) have been focused on losing that spot for Rule 5 protection if we retain Davis this winter, but it also impacts us every time we make a waiver claim and have to DFA someone to open up a spot for the claimed player.    
    • Seems just like the old SG to take a few quotes and then start bashing our FO and ownership for "dumb" things. IMO, the most telling quote in the link was also the one ME explained.  The revenue situation is uncertain.  ME is quoted as saying, "We can't estimate our revenue, our attendance ....  We can't estimate various things that we look at when we look at a player or roster budget."  In light of such uncertainty, it is quite a leap to say the FO is dumb for not pursuing a particular player - in this case, Stroman.  Most prudent, well-run businesses would operate in such as manner given the uncertainty. There are multiple ways to save $ with Chris Davis including his negotiating a settlement for possible retirement, a shortened season, etc.  All of these things are more important today than opening up Davis' roster spot.  Let's see what happens.  
    • Also, if we keep Cobb through the winter, we will need the spot for rule 5 protection.
    • It is a happy fact that I think the Orioles will be good enough next year that they won’t need him. They need good infield defense and he doesn’t provide that.
    • Some final defensive numbers: Rtot: +15 (6th in MLB) Rdrs: -3 (19th in MLB)  UZR: -5.4 (21st in MLB) Fangraphs defense: -4.4 (21st in MLB)  Fielding %: .980 (27th in MLB) Overall, a bit better than last year but below average unless you want to believe Rtot.

    • The first tiebreaker was division record, even though they played in different divisions.  I guess since all games were East vs East, Central vs Central, West vs West... Division record = league record. If that was tied then it was record in final 20 division (league) games. If that was tied then record in final 21 div games, the. 22, the n23, and so on. Kind of silly but those are the rules.
