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.

Odds are we end up with four Juan Bells if we can't get May as the second guy. Diaz is fourth and May 10th on their list - that seems reasonable to me for a guy who could help you win the World Series.

I think many folks here are quoting various lists and often these references to rankings were based in the pre-season.  Ask most scouts who the Top 10 Dodgers prospects are right now, and that list would look much different.  Verdugo may no longer qualify, so Diaz may be #1 now, and May could be as high as 2nd/3rd.

I'm remodeling a kitchen. Any help would be greatly appreciated. If you guys want something to do.

Believe me, you wouldn’t want my help.    There’s a reason I’m practicing law rather than carrying a tool belt.    I’m competent at the former and completely incompetent on the home repair/maintenance front.

Don't know if this means anything but on mlb.com top 30 prospects list for the Dodgers it has Ruiz, Diaz and Heredia as temporarily inactive where it says team and D. Santana has a blank for team.

That has already been mentioned on here.  Players that were in the futures gams show as inactive.

Does Brady have to put the players thru a series of lifting drills before he signs off on the trade pieces.

You're making sense! If the Phillies offered Medina - I'm guessing the Dodgers offer must have some good stuff to make it better, since Diaz and Medina are apparently comparable. I know the Orioles really wanted May, so perhaps that's what pushed it over the edge.

I think there is a decent gulf between Diaz and Medina - though both might still have overall 55 ratings. 

Folks classifying the remaining guys coming over with Diaz as "throw ins", "rule V guys" and generally disappointing prospects are really casting an unnecessary negative pall over this trade and severely playing down the capabilities of the few names mentioned as being among the additional guys.

Wasn't some of that for the Future's game?

I can't see it since it has been removed. What did it say?

Also, I would do a straight 1 for 1 trade of Manny for Diaz. Diaz will literally be one of our top 3 prospects instantaneously.

I'd be curious if Brady and John Angelos get credit if the Machado trade includes Diaz and May on this forum. 🤷‍♂️

I don't think anyone knows who is responsible for what, though word is DD has been the guy handling the negotiations.

Just to be clear a lot of the guys mentioned in this thread are not rule 5 guys.  A player would have to be drafted or signed before July 2014 in order to have to be on 40 man or be avaiable for rule 5.  Jackson was drafted in 2015 so not a rule 5 guy.  Alverez was signed in 2015 not a rule 5 guy either.  Rios was drafted in 2015 not a rule 5 potential guy either.  Ruiz is a a guy that needs protected,

While we're sitting around waiting to see how the Orioles screw this up, let's throw this out there...

What if we got Breaking News that the Orioles have resigned Manny to a 10 year, 350 million dollar deal.  Would you rather this scenario to the trade?

    • From MLBTR: The Brewers added three players to their 40-man roster yesterday in advance of the deadline for teams to set their rosters in advance of the Rule 5 Draft.  As you might expect, “these are not 100 percent easy, clear decisions to make on some players,” Brewers president of baseball operations David Stearns told MLB.com’s Adam McCalvy and other reporters.  While Milwaukee has only 36 players on its 40-man, teams often leave spaces open for future additions or other roster maneuvering prior to December 12, when the Rule 5 Draft takes place.  This means that other teams could select some notable Brewers youngsters who weren’t protected, such as right-hander Zack Brown, currently ranked by MLB.com as the third-best prospect in Milwaukee’s farm system.  Brown was quickly ascending up the minor league ladder and was the Brewers’ minor league pitcher of the year in 2018, though his 2019 numbers (5.79 ERA over his first 116 2/3 innings at the Triple-A level) were a step backwards.  Stearns admitted that these struggles “certainly influenced our decision,” though “we still have high hopes for Zack Brown.”  If Brown is chosen, his new team would have to keep him on its Major League roster for the entire 2020 season to gain his permanent rights, or else the team would have to offer Brown back to Milwaukee.
    • Right, right, I’ve read so many threads I get the subject mixed up between them, I had forgotten what this particular post was about.  In response to your comment, it’s pretty obvious that Mike wants 1) Inexpensive warm bodies who can help us muddle through next year, and 2)  solid prospects with legitimate potential who can possibly help us in subsequent years. This guy seems like the latter. I also wonder if the draft is once more going to be pitching heavy in 2020. If so, that makes it a little bit more likely he’ll be wanting present value in a rule five pick, but we shall have to see.
    • Former Orioles right-hander Mike Wright has a deal to pitch next year in the Korean Baseball Organization. Wright, 29, posted a 9.45 ERA and 2.025 WHIP in 10 relief appearances with the Orioles and a 6.75 ERA and 1.813 WHIP in nine games with the Mariners, who acquired him in an April 24 trade and later outrighted him. https://www.masnsports.com/school-of-roch/2019/11/os-progressing-toward-deal-with-anthony-sanders-as-first-base-coach.html

    • He is significantly more legit than Dan Clark. He can be brash but he puts in the work.  And also, he hates Dan Clark    
    • I don't think trying to copy Dan Clark counts.
