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 like the sound of that.  Hope they get into the red zone soon.  No picks or fumbles either.

It's gonna get done.

Wonder where @Sir_Loin is with all this.

I think the Orioles should be king makers and give him to the Redsox.  Because, yeah just because.  In memory of the New Oriole ascent and the collapse of the Redsox in 2011...

 

You know.. to kind of bring this back full circle.  Maybe they could even sign Robert Andino and send him back in the deal.

Good one!

Some teams interested in Machado have been checking whether #orioles would include Britton, Brach or Givens in the deal. O's really hesitant to part with Givens while under team control through 2021. Would be "very tough," per a source

Uhh... why? This team isn't in position to win anything of consequence until 2021 at the earliest. If a team wants Machado and Givens and is willing to deal us a great prospect package for the duo, we need to make the move. There should be no attachments to anyone.

How is the top of the draft looking next year by the way? Is there a once in a generation type talent to headline the draft and that we can build around?

They don't want to admit that it will take that long.

In other words, incompetence.... but we already knew that.

Good point ....but Gvens is not really having a good year. We've heard the Dodgers are interested in Zach Britton.

Yeah, I mean ideally if you're dealing these guys you seperate them if they have value/interest. Packaging Machado with an arm likely gives us less than the package we'd get seperated. But it just depends I guess..
