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.

Honestly starting to think the Yankees would be the best trade partner. They have a lot in the farm system and would probably be more willing to give it up because their MLB roster is young. Help Yanks win their 28th WS and we get some good young players in return

Quarterback sacked, moved back to the 25.  10 yard loss, 3rd down and long.

Nah, man. We're gonna make like Jim Marshall and take it to the house!

I think so, too. I think Clint Frazier is almost a throw-away piece for them and would be a nice starting point along with an arm of which they have a few.

They're not close.  Milwaukee and LA, the two teams that were apparently really close a couple days ago can't even agree on the centerpieces of the deal. 

Of course, if this is to be believed.  I know several of you hold a grudge against Rosenthal but I think he's one of the better reporters around.

 

 

Rosenthal is a Putz.

And I think the Yankees might be more willing to give up Andujar because they can probably lock up Manny long term

Yankees probably would trade Frazier for Machado, but im not really a fan of his. Neither are the Yankees apparently.

During the off-season Angelos didn't want to trade Machado to any team he thought might flip him to the Yankees.

You think he's going to OK a deal with the Yankees?

The situation has changed. The teams 40 games under .500. In the offseason they were "competing" with the Yankees. It took the team to suck this bad, but I think the front office has smelled the coffee finally.

Now that the cold glass of water has been thrown in our faces, would you accept Phillips and Ortiz plus a third piece for Manny?  Those 2 pieces are worth more than a supplemental draft pick, right?

No. Not plus the money in a draft where we are one two or three. Also. No. and As well. They are not done. There are better offers to be had.

The O's should be all over that, if that trade is a possibility, but I think that's just something to give ESPN writers something to write about.

From Rosenthal's latest on the Athletic:

The Orioles want right-hander Corbin Burnes as the centerpiece in any Machado trade with the Milwaukee Brewers, and High A infielder Gavin Lux as the key prospect from the Los Angeles Dodgers, according to major-league sources.

Both teams are balking at including those players, sources say. The Brewers would prefer to build their package around Triple A outfielder Brett Phillips and Double A right-hander Luis Ortiz, according to one source. The Dodgers, unwilling to part with Lux or another Orioles target, High A right-hander Dustin May, are pursuing other veteran infielders, as first reported by Yahoo’s Jeff Passan, while remaining in the mix for Machado.

The Dodgers' list of who they won't get rid of is almost as unrealistic as the one of who we expect in return.

    • That draft was loaded with impact MLB players.  Heck, Aaron Nola went in the 22nd round of that draft (#679 overall).  Everybody missed out on that one.
    • Uhhh okay so reminding a guy he's married to one of the most famous and desirable women on the planet is suppose to make him feel bad? On top of beating their team to go to the World Series? Yep Wank fans are as dumb as they are annoying.
    • Not saying it isn't, but AAA will be the first year we assume he will be using the MLB ball if AAA in 2020 will still be using the same balls. I'm glad Wells continues to beat expectations at every level but being a soft tosser still concerns me and probably always will. Wonder how many innings they give him with the big league club next year in spring training before they option him out to minor league camp?
    • I don't think Preston is giving enough of an adjustment because of weather conditions.  MVP candidate Russell Wilson played worse, against a statistically worse pass defense.
    • I agree. But it's been interesting to me to meet Y fans who found him so annoying that they're glad to be rid of him. They usually cite the fact that he made so many pitching changes and slowed the game down so much it became boring to them.
    • Something similar happened to me and another O's fan visiting from Vegas at the first 2012 playoff game at Yankee Stadium (the one in which Flaherty and Manny hit homers, Adam misplayed Jeter's fly into a RBI-triple, and Ibanez hit the game-tying and -winning homers in the 9th and 12th innings off of Jim Johnson and Matusz after Miguel Gonzalez had pitched his typically Yankee-killer gem). Beer wasn't thrown on us (we were in the bleachers and those fans wd never waste their Bud Light mead)--just the empty blue plastic bottles. We needed a two-officer escort from the water fountain all the way down the ramps. They also mocked my race. The other fan was a young white man and had flown in to bet on the game, and lost. There was a nice Canadian woman behind us who said she was rooting for the Y's, but hated Yankee fans.... I have some some cool photos. Nonetheless, I loved that season and series.
