  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.

    • I don’t know him, but especially with 2080baseball not doing a Rule 5 preview this year, his is the only comparable Rule 5 Draft preview in the public domain. He’s been doing it for a lot longer than me and he has sources, so it’s a solid measuring stick for my work on the subject.
    • https://www.yahoo.com/sports/anthony-rendon-agrees-to-sevenyear-245-million-deal-with-angels-034047632.html This is a nuts offseason isn't it. My analysis: I'm going to start with his Steamer 2020 predictions, which are 5.5 WAR.  I figure he's good for: 2020: 5.5 2021: 5.5 2022: 5 2023: 4.5 2024: 4 2025: 3.5 2026: 2.5 That's an estimated 30.5 WAR.  Assuming FA rates are at around 8mm/WAR, that's an expected return of about 244m.  Not too bad. cost per WAR has stayed stagnant/regressed slightly in the past couple years, so there's no guarantee that the future will see more expensive prices.  This seems like fair market value for a good player that's been moderately durable for his career.  Hopefully he doesn't fall off a cliff like Pujols did.
    • Is he a friend of yours? Or a fan of yours? :-) 
    • There are lots of relief fits, just depends on how they have those players evaluated. I’m sure those boards vary drastically between teams.
    • Well they’ve hinted that they are looking at starting pitching.  Fuentes, Sharp, and Rijo don’t really fit the profile of pitchers the Orioles have targeted under Elias. That doesn’t mean they won’t take them, but I think it’s less likely. Newsome checks a few boxes from a pure statistical standpoint. It’s hard to pinpoint who they’d target to start, I doubt they have evaluated Bailey as a starter.  Maybe they want to get Brown to drop his 2S. Or aren’t afraid to grab a starter without much AA time in Ian McKinney. Misiewicz would be another option if they want to go safer. Buddy Reed fits the need for a pure CF guy to give depth behind Hays.  Fermin makes sense in terms of adding quality to the middle infielder org depth. Yonny Hernandez too but I doubt people are as high on him, I think he’s just a personal favorite.  I know with Orioles prospects the philosophy is you have to graduate each level in the minors. If they stick to that, it limits things to Tom, Rojas, Megill, Clay (I’m assuming there is no fit for Nogowski) and a few others. That’s the best chance for 2020 value, but limits the potential for long term value.
    • Revenues are up, but the % of MLB players getting that is shriking and in-equality in pay is raising between players. The system is broken, younger players are way under-paid. Which gives teams a silly amount of surplus value to use. They have to invest it somewhere to make it matter. That is why you see bonkers FA deals for top talents. This broken system is why re-building is much more en-vouge then it was before. Its so freaking profitable to stack up on guys who are talented and give you 3 years of pre-arb. Then 3 more years of escalating 1 year salaries based on merit. The way to stop is a re-model of the arb system and let the youth that are actually winning the games get more $$$
