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.

At the time and even now...Colin Moran for Zach Britton is such a meh trade. Especially considering this:

"Moran was one of the medical issues. He suffered a concussion and facial fracture after fouling a ball off his face on July 22 and remains on the DL."

I mean, damaged goods and a "prospect" who really has questionable defensive skills and a bat that is more middle of the road than anything. 

If that's fair for Britton, I'd continue to question Duquette's poor trading track record.

He won't be traded, but if he is, don't count on anything close to a haul.  I think we should be extremely happy with if we get a top 100 prospect. 

THere is a pretty good chance you can get a top 100 prospect with the draft pick, so I"d hold out for better than that.

I would have had no problem accepting the reported offer.

And you know that isn't me using hindsight.

What was the reported offer for Britton?

Manny is having a great season.  We need to expect two Mancini-like players at the point he broke in on in 2016 for Manny.  Or one present major league guy and a Mancini-like guy.  Mancini came in on a short stint and contributed to the point you knew he was going to be on the team the next year and beyond.  Plus two really good prospects after those... maybe one really good one and two with a lot of upside... for me, that gets it done. 

It seems like the Braves are going to have the most need, but that means Manny playing 3rd the rest of the season... not that we care.  And we shouldn't when pursuing the best return. 

If it's me, I'm trying to package Manny and Britton.  Britton could come out a shell of himself and likely will look rough getting started.  But having that potential dead end closer might make the difference on getting that third really good Mancini-like prospect with Manny's two ready to go major leaguers and two or three really good upside guys on the back end.  Netting 6, 7, or 8 guys in short order would be nice.  But it would take Britton (...or maybe Brach) to get the additional talent.

Regardless of what I think they might get, I'm a realist and the club has not proven to be adept at trading under the current regime.  I liked the Andrew Miller and Trumbo pick up... The others I could have done without.  I wish we would have locked up Miller and jettisoned O'Day when he was up.  Anyway, I think we merely net a decent return.  I'd venture to say many to most are going to be disappointed.

I don't recall the specific names.  Sorry.  I do remember that I would have been fine with it last fall.

Of course I didn't expect a big return considering the season he had been having, I just didn't want to pay him 12M for 2018.

It's their 5th and 11th best prospects. Gamboa is blocked by Crawford so he's probably expendable. Neither is a top 100 MLB prospect. 

 

5) Arquimedes Gamboa, SS, Grade B: Age 20, signed out of Venezuela in 2014, played most of ’17 at age 19; hit .261/.328/.378 with six homers, 33 walks, 52 strikeouts in 307 at-bats in Low-A, very credible for his age, finished hot hitting .340 in August/September; switch-hitter with some polish, gap power, reasonable strike zone judgment and 60-grade speed; arm and range should work at shortstop, cut error rate in half last year; on course for breakout season; ETA 2021.

 

11) Enyel De Los Santos, RHP, Grade B-: Age 22, from the Dominican Republic, traded from the San Diego Padres to the Phillies for Freddy Galvis in December 2017; posted 3.78 ERA in Double-A with 138/48 K/BB, 131 hits; another hard-thrower with mid-90s fastball, throws strikes, curveball and change-up both have moments but often not in the same game; I think he’s a bit more likely to remain a starter than the similar (but taller) Franklyn Kilome but other observers like Kilome a little better; ETA 2020.

 

To state the obvious: Most teams have a few late -teens or early-20s guys like this in their systems because they aggressively scout, sign and develop talent from the Dominican and Venezuela. The Orioles refuse to invest dollars and resources in that direction. So we get Latin American talent only out of other teams' dumpsters -- or by trading Manny Machado. That's sad.

It appears to just be Heyman picking names off a prospect list.  Prospect lists are typically made in the off season and rarely updated.  It is several months into the season and things do change. See Ryan McKenna. 

De Los Santos stock has been great in AAA (1.40 era, 1.07 whip, 194 average against and 56 k in 51 innings)  and his stock has increased significantly.  Rotowire does update their prospect rankings more frequently and De Los Santos is 72 overall and the Phillies 3rd ranked prospect.

I don't know much about Gamboa and he is young but he is certainly not setting the world on fire at full season A (256/ 332 / 665 with 0 hrs and 2 steals).

Enyel De Los Santos would be a great get for Manny, he's got a lot of helium right now. This is why I said earlier in this thread, do not look at preseason rankings to decide how you should feel about these trade offers. Just a few months of minor league games can change the landscape drastically.

I read that Moran was the infielder in the deal. I believe he was on the DL at the time and part of the alleged reason the trade was not approved by ownership. I would assume that the Os were also asking for Whitley but I'm not sure it was confirmed.....hindsight being what it is ....whomever nixed it is a moron!

They're a moron because Britton got hurt or you think Moran is something special?

    • Good points Drungo! I like the idea of working backwards from the desired outcomes of a system. Goal 1: Service time should no longer be a deciding factor in free agency or player promotion. I think automatic free agency after the age 27 season would be good (or after age 23 if they've never made it to the majors), with a better compensation system worked out between the team that signs and the team that loses the guy in free agency. Maybe a % of the contract value? Goal 2: Significantly reduce the bloated, inefficient system. Limit minor league affiliates to 2 full season teams, 1 short season team, and whatever overseas academies they want. Pay the minor leaguers better. Cut the draft in half (20 rounds).
    • As long as it isn't DJ on horseback! Otherwise I'd worry that the ball would hit the horse square in the forehead, risking career-ending injury to the glove (not whip)-wielding jockey as its knees buckled.
    • When I started this post I didn't know if twenty people would respond or a hundred. More have responded and with some good comments. I didn't say I think Hyde should be fired. I threw out the possibility with Elias terminating a lot of people in the organization. I don't think he will be replaced even though he does questionable things almost every game. The coaches are a different story.  I think several could be replaced and possibly our advance scouts and if Hyde is like most managers he won't replace them. It will have to be Elias who makes the needed changes. Will he ? It looks like Detroit will get the number 1 pick.  I think they are 3 1/2 behind us with 10 to go. 7 vs the White Sox and 3 vs the Twins. We have 3 with Seattle, 3 with Toronto and 3 with Boston. We could lose them all and so could Detroit.  This is going to be hard to predict.  Number 2 is still okay.
    • ^^^^^^^^^Listen to this man.   He was a very good defensive outfielder in his day.
    • Just watched the replay, and timed it.   If he had IMMEDIATELY thrown the ball back in instead of beating his chest, it might have saved 2-3 seconds.  Tonight's game lasted 10,380 seconds according to the box score.   So at the very worst the "celebration" added 0.02% to the time of the game.  Even if a game had 50 such celebrations, it would add roughly 2 minutes to the gametime. One pitching change probably takes 30-50 times longer than the "celebration". You can dislike it all you want, but trying to say it slows down the game is an absolutely absurd stretch of logic to try to support your point.  
    • My 3: Get rid of Davis. He isn't a ML capable player anymore. The money is a sunk cost. Bite the bullet and cut him loose. Find some pitching. Doesn't have to be expensive or flashy. Just a few guys that can get more outs. Tighten up the D. Again, not expensive or flashy, just a bit above average. Next year is year 2 of the rebuild so I'll be patient. These would be prudent goals for now.
    • Its a meaningless game for the 2019 Orioles, but not for Austin Hays.  He's showing he's a major league ballplayer and he makes major league defensive plays.  The O's and major leagues in general need more excitement.
