  1. 1. What trade return do you expect for Zach Britton?

    • The return will be outstanding
    • The return will be solid
    • The return will be merely decent
    • The return will comparable to Colin Moran: low OBP, below average power, poor fielder with a limited future in MLB
    • The return will be worse than Colin Moran
    • The Orioles will not trade Britton and will not receive a compensation pick since there is no chance they will QO him.

Not to Hijack a Britton thread but I know we all think that every GM out there now is an advanced stats desciple, loath to deviate from that sun bathed path, but there are some old school GMs out there.  There are guys who value chemistry and leadership, who use their eyes to value defense, and understand the value of a 3 position outfielder who can hit the ball out of the park.

Jones will move more than needles, he will move prospects.

Who?  Dave Stewart was fired.

Considering the Machado haul, what do you guys think would be a complimentary move for Britton and with who?

Maybe infield and SP?

Best players available.

I have a hunch it will be a good haul. Relief pitchers are overvalued right now.

I think they are properly valued given how much impact they can have in a playoff series.

All the  off days mean they can be used pretty much every game.

Astros  Alacala/Perez/Martin/Armenteros and Arauz. (SP & SS)

Phillies  Romero/Suarez/De Los Santos and Irvin or .Maton.       (SP & SP or SS)

Dodgers Smith and Gonsolin (c , and SP)

 

im hoping for a 3rd player that's a lottery ticket.

I understand your viewpoint. But relievers performance is notoriously volatile from year to year. I think a good to great everyday player is much more valuable.

Sure, from year to year I agree.

I was just talking about late season acquisitions for the playoffs.

Cleveland gave up Francisco Mejia, one of the top prospects in baseball, for Brad Hand.  Britton has nowhere near the control time left that Hand does, but one would think this helps his market a little.  Hoping for a back-half Top 100 guy.

How many times does it have to be repeated that it was Hand AND Cimber?

Two guys, both with years of control left.

In today's market, if I were a GM, I would try to develop as many late inning relievers as I could and keep trading them to improve the ML Club, or stock the Minors.

I think that was Billy Beane's strategy to acquiring Jim Johnson.

I'd like to get two good prospects back, maybe a third lower level A guy with promise.

I'm honestly not sure, but I know our system looks better today then it did at the start of the week.  We need to keep ramping up.  I'm not saying I'm looking forward to getting back just anyone but if the trade for Manny was more about quantity and high risk/reward I'd like to see less quantity and higher quality for Britton.  

But if it's a quantity trade again, I got no complaints.

Your 7-game statline kind of proves my point.  The appearances before that he got roughed up.  Before that he was hurt.

If you're trading for the guy, it's hard to know what you're getting.

Hererra trade sounds reasonable.

Ok if you want to nitpick. He was hurt and missed the time He obviously didn't spend enough time in the minors as his spring training. He lost the rust and regained the velocity. It's fair to say he was off early and it's also fair to say he looks at or close to his old self.

The Orioles only need one teams GM to think that and the Orioles win. The Cubs minor league system isnt equal to many of the others anyway. A report said half the teams probably have interest. Let's say 6-8 are serious.

Id expect 1 top guy Hopefully in the bottom of the top 100 (4-10 organization ranking) , 1 top 25, and a third guys that looks similar to the 4th or 5th guy that we got for Manny.

We could do better....Brach will ge awesome with a good defense behind him, and isleft handed sinker strike out guys. There aren't many of them. Plus Britton proabaly extends if offered.

    • The problem isn’t just missing pitches here and there, as frustrating as that can be for the players and managers. When an ump is having a bad game the batters, pitchers, and catchers have no idea what the strike zone is going to be from inning to inning or even from pitch to pitch. How was Realmuto to know that last pitch was going to be called strike three to end the game when a better pitch to Harper had been called a ball just seconds earlier?    One of the main advantages of an electronic strike zone would be the consistency of that zone. What’s a strike now will be a strike next inning and next game and next year. I think that’s where the primary value will be found. 
    • As if my year couldn’t get any worse, Sisco starts doing good...
    • I've been in the robo ump camp for a while now, and these examples only strengthen my viewpoint.  The time has come to remove ball and strike calls from the umpire.  Make it happen.
    • I am still adjusting to all the new people, in part because I watch over the MLB app and I frenetically switch between the TV, radio, home/away feeds so everyone kinda blurs together (particularly after a few beers). I think Ben is awesome on color. I like Melanie the best so far on play by play. Her even, steady, slow, accurate calls are a classic style. I find her voice pleasing. Sure, she could work on the excitement a bit perhaps, but I think it is better to grow into excitement than to come to the door with it. She will find her signature call. She has the most upside of the lot I think.
    • I don't have a problem with the baseball knowledge or game calling accuracy of anyone on the TV or radio crews this year. I fully understand the difficult circumstances and that they're beholden to what they see on TV. I don't think any of them are dunces about baseball. I'm sure all of them are very nice people, too. The lack of excitement -- especially with Scott Garceau -- is the worst thing for me. Jim Hunter may not have known the sport, but at least he knew how to make a home run call. He was also an excellent setup man for Jim Palmer's often sarcastic retorts. Palmer was so great at underhandedly insulting Hunter for not even "getting it" after Palmer hinted at it and it was so funny. Their dynamic was far more entertaining than Garceau and McDonald.
    • In some areas of private industry, there's a (fairly brutal, honestly) performance management process called "stack ranking." In stack ranking, everyone's performance is compared against each other, using a combination of objective and subjective metrics. The elite few at the top get raises and/or promotions; the solid contributors get to coast along undisturbed; the struggling end up getting "help" to try to improve their performance; and the worst of the worst get fired. This happens on a monthly, bi-annual or yearly cadence depending on the company. Stack ranking of umpires would be based on their accuracy on calls compared to the "correct" call via video review / electronic strike zone. You could set up the strata exactly as you do for tech workers: give raises to the best, let the good ones keep going, pull the struggling ones from daily MLB games and have them work on their calls and improve in some kind of umpiring camp, and just fire the worst ~1% every year. The other thing you could do is add more umpires to the umpiring pool. This would increase the "overhead" cost of umpiring, yes, but by adding more umpires without adding more teams or games, you could set up a situation where only the best X% of umpires get to call MLB games on the regular. The rest would either call simulated games, extended spring training games, or minor league games until they get better.
