  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.

On MLBN last night, when they were discussing the Manny deal, they said the Orioles COULD have held out longer and waited to get closer to the deadline, but "one slip on a banana peel and they'd get nothing."

Wouldn't that philosophy ring doubly true with Zach who just returned from a lengthy DL stint following surgery?  I would think we stir up the bids but then make the best deal possible in the next week or so.  I wouldn't temp fate and wait too close to the deadline.  

If Britton pitches like a dominate closer from now until the deadline we will receive more for him.  If he gets knocked around a couple of times you might not get anything.

Yes, they are lottery tickets that may pan out down the road and become highly rated prospects.  These are guys you settle for if unable to land someone that is a prospect now.  All of the other teams being mentioned in regards to Britton seem to me to be more attractive trade partners than the Cubs.  Now, if the other teams don't offer higher rated prospects, then get the best lottery ticket package that you can.  Again, please understand that I am not saying that we shouldn't answer the phone.  Of course we listen to offers, but don't settle for lottery tickets until we have to.

How is Amaya a lottery ticket? He's in A ball crushing it at a young age. He is a legit prospect with a high ceiling that is most definitely worthy of being in this conversation for Britton.

Do you only consider a guy a prospect if he's in AA or AAA or?

I'm with you Dipper, whether it's another injury or a few rough outings, I would have looked to trade Britton yesterday considering it was a trade worth making.

I was surprised to see Britton ranked 3rd on mlbtrade's top trade candidates. I feel he's just one or two shaky appearances away from seeing his stock value drastically drop. If I'm the O's and have a very good trade proposal or two already, I would look to move him immediately.

Do you think there are no ranked prospects lower than AA?  Apparently, you rank Amaya very highly.  That is well and good.  Perhaps you will be proven right.  I don't know.  There are players that interest me much more on the other teams that are apparently in on Britton.  I think I've made my thoughts clear on this.  If you think Amaya is the top player we should be targeting, we simply disagree.

It sure seems like you feel that way if Amaya who is killing it in A ball at age 19 is just a "lottery ticket".

It's fine if he doesn't intrigue you in a Britton deal, but he isn't a "lottery ticket" just because he's 19. He's holding his own and then some in a level he shouldn't be in for his age and displaying serious upside. He is a legit prospect.

Fried, Pache, Touki, Muller, Wentz, Contreras, Cruz, Weigel (out for now though so maybe not), Cumberland, Karnok, Encarnacion, de la Cruz....

Such a loaded system. Keep in mind this list disregards their obvious top names. Makes too much sense. They'd likely only need to give one of the first 5-6 names on my list and maybe one of the latter guys and still be sitting super pretty. Makes too much sense for them imo if they're going for it.

Wentz was Alex Wells last time out in regards to velocity and left with an injury, doesn’t look good.

Good catch, probably not on our list then.

Atlanta is loaded, they have 10+ guys that you could center a Britton deal around. 

I’d target Bryse Wilson.

Yes... I was hoping, unrealistically, that the Braves would get in on Manny, because their system is loaded.  It's pitching top-heavy, which is cool. Bryse Wilson or Touki Toussaint as a headliner would likely be about the best we could get, but I could be off.

I'm intrigued by Toussaint, Wentz, Allard, and Fried on the pitching side.  Hitters include Waters, Contreras, and of course Riley, but he's going nowhere.

A couple more in the low minors to consider - 20 year old 6'6 lefty Kyle Muller - has had a little trouble in high A - and strongly built 20 year old 3rd baseman Juan Carlos Encarnacion.

As I and others have mentioned, the Braves' Drew Waters (OF) would be an exciting get.  I suspect the Braves will hold tightly to him, but one never knows.

Former Vandy starter Kyle Wright, now in AA,  belongs on the list too IMO.

Kyle Wright won't be moved for a rental RP. You can quote me on that.

That's why I'm not mentioning him. I mentioned guys who are reasonable possibilities. If we get a guy of Wright's magnitude, fantastic, but that would shock me.

Not to cross threads, but what if you could trade Gausman / Britton to the Braves for Soroka, Wright or Gohara and another top 100 prospect? Would you do it?

    • Just talking about the general trend that analytic teams realize that arms are more risky, so they're ranking gets slightly dinged to compensate for that. He also didn't pick a pitcher until the 8th round last year. Things like on base skills are harder to mold using modern training, places like driveline are much more effective for pitchers.
    • I guess so.  If they want to have Mize paired with Lacy/Hancock, it's hard to argue with.  Tork does seem to be the consensus #1 pick though.  I am curious when the last time there was a player previously thought to be the consensus #1 pick who didn't go first overall.   
    • Saw a mock draft with us taking Martin and left drafting pitcher Nick Swiney at 30 https://prospects365.com/2020/05/25/ray-butlers-2020-mlb-mock-draft/
    • The Frobster beat me to posting the Melewski interview by 13 minutes.   The article mentions the Os in on quality international prospects that we knew about including Samuel Basallo and Maikol Hernandez and one that I am not sure I have seen mentioned with the Os here - Wilmer Feliciano who will get a signing bonus just under $500k and has big left-handed power.  A reminder that none of these guys are signed, just apparently committed or agreed to the Os until they are signed. It seems like a very strong group of elite prospects given how late our current FO was to the game of signing this upcoming J2 class.   The payoff from these guys is likely years away, but I think there is a chance last year's class and this year's class should start impacting our top 30 prospects entering 2021.  How optimistic is it to think predict our next international signing to reach our top 10 would be by 2022?  
    • Don’t have a subscription, but here’s an interview the author, Ben Badler, gave to Steve Melewski.   https://www.masnsports.com/steve-melewski/2020/06/baseball-americas-ben-badler-on-os-international-effort-video.html At the end of the video, Badler speculates that the next CBA will create an international draft.   He thinks the players will posture about and then “maybe they’ll trade it for a few extra inches of legroom on the bus.”    LOL!    
    • Bad quality vid but its the only one that I found that shows Frohwirth's side of it. Back in that era Martinez grabs some pine 9 out of 10 times with that pitch.
