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.

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.

I don't think it's far off.  Ryan Mountcastle was ranked # 11 by MLB.com in 2015 after we drafted him.  And we by no means had a deep/talented system.  

Regardless, my original point that any Machado return will be worth more than a comp pick stands.  It's hard for me imagine us not getting multiple top ten prospects in any potential return, and at worst we will get at least one.

If you can't get a better return than the value of the comp pick you don't trade him.

Agreed.  I just don't see any scenario where that happens.  He's having an MVP season.  Even a half season of that is worth a couple top prospects to a contending team.

One in which Peter gets involved.

I'm just speaking on the kinds of deals I expect to be on the table.  Not the likelihood of ownership/FO screwing it up and not agreeing to a trade, which is a distinct possibility. 

I'm not sure what point you are arguing exactly.

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.

Well I think it will be.

Right he will just walk away.

Well, I suppose either an offer hasn't been yet or he would have been dealt or, more likely, they are continuing the game of "not good enough" as the clock is running out rather than the criteria being ultimately  "better than comp pick."     If we assume that there has already been offers floated  that would be more than a comp pick value and that those offers have been thus far refused dating back to the winter, then the question is "when does the clock really work against you", namely as we get closer to trade deadline and no deal yet, then I would expect at some point that the collective offers not only will not go up, but they will go down even further as the opposing teams say...."No way can they just hold on to him and take only a comp pick."   And the games available that Manny would be helping another team win click down every game he plays for us.

I can’t answer the poll without knowing the goal. Are we doing a total rebuild?  My expectations and judgement will be entirely different than say...trading with the Cubs for Addison Russell so we can go for it again next year.

As long as there is a desperate team, the clock only works against the O's when it hits the trade deadline (because he WON'T clear waivers in August) or he gets injured.  I'd like to see a trade sooner than later, but I truly believe that teams will still pay with decent prospects all the way to the deadline if they think Manny gets them to the playoffs or the World Series.

I know the Yankees got a great haul for Chapman, but Manny is a lot more valuable than Chapman was.  This should be a good trade with a nice return.

He is but...

The Cubs were prepared to overpay given the unique situation they were in.  I don't think any team this year has the need to win that the Cubs had.

Every single team can use a Chapman so the pool of potential suitors is higher than it is for a position player.

How many teams  have an MVP candidate at SS or 3B?

I'm sure the list is more than 1 or 2 but it can't be that big of a number.......

I'm not saying Machado wouldn't be an upgrade at either short or third for a lot of teams.

But just because he is superior to third baseman X on team Y doesn't mean it is feasible for team Y to trade for Machado and replace third baseman X with him.

Every team can replace the last man in their bullpen with Chapman.

Just seems like a silly an arbitrary distinction to me.   Obviously Chapman would be upgrade for a ton of teams in their bullpen.   That doesn't mean it's feasible or a good idea for Team X to trade for him.............etc.

The question should be about WAR added to the team I suppose........and I have to think the WAR added by Machado should be significant in a lot of cases.   Yea the longer we wait in 2018 the more that number goes down............but you only need one desperate team 'on the cusp' to jump in.

    • Right, but unilateral rules for the way the game is played on the field, with the exception of the DH.  
    • Why the hell was he not strong the last few years?  
    • Yes - different rules for different parks...
    • If you just scout the traditional stat line, it's pretty easy to see why you might drop Hall from the list. You could look at the 6.02 BB/9 and say that he doesn't have the command and that he's destined to be a reliever, but it was reported that Holt told Hall and Akin to throw a lot more breaking balls in fastball counts. I would bet on an athletic pitcher like Hall tightening his command every day of the week. Besides if you look closer at his stats, there's a much more positive picture to be seen. His K/9 increased from 9.54 to 12.94, HR/9 decreased from 0.57 to 0.33, and average against dropped from .198 to .185. His FIP actually decreased from 3.67 to 3.22, so ultimately his stuff got even better this year and better hitters actually got worse at hitting him. I would really take this list with a grain of salt, BP really does not have the same reputation that it used to have.
    • A little to my surprise, the Rangers, their new stadium, and their stated desire to get more right-handed have missed Ozuna, Castellanos and now Starling Marte. Their player development staff may have a high appraisal of Ronald Guzman, who to some systems sits rather conspicuously as one of the worst regulars anywhere, never mind on aspiring contenders.  There's still Arenado/Bryant (though ATL figures to be fiercer for one, and they may not both be traded). I don't think Mancini alone gets to Jung/Solak on the back half of Top 100 lists, but could Givens with him? Sherten Apostel is perhaps overqualified to be his org's second best 3B prospect, and they've also buried Kolby Allard under some solid veteran SP's.
    • Thanks.  I’ll be here paying attention for you.  Sarasota’s especially nice during Feb/March.  You could have met fellow Baman’s mom and dad Henderson last year they were down for a couple weeks watching Gunnar.  Some guy got a ball signed by his whole family.  
    • He's been letting the ball travel really well.  All the way to the catcher's glove.
