  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.

    • Thought it would be interesting to look at what people are thinking now.
    • Our defense was key in this victory! Great game by the team and Mr Jackson and his offense. Our defense will be a top 5 before the season is over
    • I think the answer to all these game polls going forward have the same answer.
    • Does anyone else think this 2019 team is a better team than either of our Super Bowl winning teams?      
    • In the 1920s the International League Orioles were probably among the top 10 professional teams in the world.  Jack Dunn refused to sign affiliation agreements.  He had all stars and Hall of Fame caliber players in their prime.  But eventually he was pressured by the rest of the league into caving.  The PCL made a little run in the 1950s at going independent and hinting a going major, but expansion and the Dodgers and Giants put an end to that.  Besides the relatively low-level indy leagues today there haven't been real minor league pennant races in my lifetime.
    • It's premature to say that the MLB draft is moving to August.  MLB wants to move it after the College World Series.  Some have speculated that August makes sense as a date in August would eliminate the need for short-season A teams.   Logically, it makes no sense to mandate which minor league teams will be axed although "leaking" a list may encourage towns on the fence to up their facilities.  How up to date are the facilities in Frederick? It location is great.  Organizations such as the Orioles/Astros that are big on machine learning, regression models, and neural networks are more likely to be on board with this plan while organizations such as the Cubs/Yankees that have the resources to have a more balanced approach may have  misgivings. During the past season the Cubs had 300 players under control.  This new plan would lessen that number by at least 100.  Youngsters that are unable to make the jump from the DSL or HS to full-season ball may stay at their respective complexes and play unofficial games against other organizations throughout the summer as opposed to until the draft as in past years.  One advantage is that it will be easier to evaluate prospects with fewer non-prospects in the mix, although you could argue that 20-year old prospects benefit from playing with 25-year old non-prospects who know the little things but have limited tools. The great statistics put up by top prospects during their first ML seasons in recent years suggests that top prospects may be spending too much time in the minors.  More rapid promotion for a select few is likely with a thinner pool of players.  It is also possible that AAA will be more like AA is today, i.e., the place for top prospects.   Independent leagues comprised of released players could fill the role that AAA has today - although this will depend on the details of the next ML agreement.  I've also heard that some teams would prefer a shorter season so that their prospects could spend more time in their respective pitching/hitting labs.           
    • I think their short-term plan would be to just have complex type leagues in Florida.  Use the spring training sites.  Intersquad games, eventually set up schedules to play other teams.  And release all the random organizational guys. MLB has all the leverage here because a large number of MiLB teams need MLB money to exist, and the majors don't really need the minors.  MLB would be largely unchanged if the minors disappeared tomorrow and was replaced by all the real prospects just hanging out in Florida and working out, playing scrimmages. But... maybe way back in the MLB owners heads is the idea that if they totally dumped bigger minor league cities new, bigger, more powerful independent leagues could spring up.  Players who don't like their draft position or bonus could have an alternate place to go, at least for a while.  I don't know if a 3rd major (really 2nd since AL and NL are just one league) is even marginally viable, but a fully independent AAA-ish league could seriously annoy the majors.
