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.

Phillies have enough talent in their system to put together a winning package for Machado.  But I am not excited about J.T. Crawford.  He draws walks but otherwise hasn't been impressive with the bat even in the minors, and his calling card on defense seems to be versatility--in other words he looks like a utility player.

I think you're going to be disappointed if you're expecting five players in return for Manny. When's the last time a single player was dealt for five prospects at the trade deadline?

I know Bedard and Tejada were each traded for five guys, but those weren't deadline deals, and each still had two full seasons left on their contracts.

Paul your late to the party....We've been discussing Manny and Britton

From reports most seem to think Manny will return 3 or 4 players depending on quailty. Callis was on the radio the other day and he is saying Britton should return 1 Very good prospect and 1 lesser guy if he continues to be dominant until the deadline

Sorry if this has been mentioned, but I read on mlbrumors.com that the Phillies have upped their offer and the Braves have sent an offer. Anyone with any insight know anymore?

Short of getting Ruiz or May from LAD or Hiura from Mil or one of the pitching prizes in Atlanta, I think Phil has a strong contingent of 55 rated guys like Medina, Haseley and others that would provide a very nice return for MM.  While we should be getting the best prospects we can, Philly also has some other benefits - IMO, they will be the favorites with NYY to land MM - so let him see how Philly is now.  Philly has a clear need at SS given Crawford's struggles - something NYY does not have.  Let Philly pitch him for three months.

It would be nice if Britton started to be dominant.

Dodgers have 4-5 guys now in the top 100. Verdugo is definitely a big piece as is White

I getting more optimistic by the day. The bidding war seems to be heating up. Now we just have to cross our fingers that they will actually trade him.

With Manny and Britton heating up, this the most excited I’ve been about Orioles baseball since maybe 2016. Excited to boost the farm a bit.

Oooh! Fun with numbers!

Last 6 appearances 4.14 FIP. 6 games is no less arbitrary than 3. 

PS, per fan graphs, Britton’s average sinker in the last 3 games you reference is 95.5, not 97, which is improving sufficiently, but it isn’t that critical speed mark above 97 that made Britton special 2015/16. Average those years was 97.3. So, 97 is dominant Britton. 93 is Bad Britton. It’s only fair to call 95, average Britton

He never said he is averaging 97. He said he's hitting 97, which he is.

Numbers are important but teams are more interested in seeing the stuff regaining form, which it is. He isn't at his prime spot no, but if he was he'd be one of if not the best reliever in the game. He's still one of if not the best RP on the market full of a market desperate for relief pitching.

Pretty easy to tell we're seeing flashes of prime Britton regardless of numbers. Caleb even referenced it the other day, saying he's not right where he was before but he's close as he is becoming increasingly harder and harder to catch (which is a good thing).

    • This is the Orioles' fourth losing season in a row. Someone who's been a fan for 50 years undoubtedly remembers that the team went 14 seasons in a row with losing records from 1998 through 2011. Then the next year they made the playoffs and won their first round game and all of a sudden it was a lot of fun again. The good times will come again.  Can't guarantee it'll be next year, but they will come.
