Machado to the Dodgers, 5-1 deal

Agree.  However, I am very interested as to how this whole demanding to play SS plays out for him when he hits the market.  That could test his character a bit.

I think he's at third next year.

Hays/Mullins/Diaz could be a legit exciting outfield.

Yes please, plus DJ Stewart in the 4th / corner OF and occasional DH role.

Hays needs to bounce back.  But that would be SUCH a better defensive outfield!

Trade Britton, Brach, Adam, Trumbo and listen on Schoop, Gausman, and Bundy.  The more we trade now the faster we get better.  Oh, and then sign Manny back in offseason.

Britton first.  He's got the most noise at the moment.

The only part that is truly painful is that Manny is officially gone. I absolutely loved watching him play for us. I’m a bit embarrassed to feel sentimental, but he was the most gifted player I have seen put on an Orioles uniform. He was the one guy who all others teams wished they had, an Oriole mentioned repeatedly at The Little League World Series when kids told the country who their favorite player was. We don’t get many of those and it may be a long time before we get another. 

He was a pleasure to watch. He brought life to Camden Yards that had been missing and is now gone. He will be missed by this life long O’s fan.

The only kind of organization that can keep a player like Manny is a successful one.  As long as the Orioles have one or two years of success for every 4 or 5 years of losing then they'll most likely be forced to trade their very best players.

Gotta do some research on these guys, but it appears they got only one top-10 prospect for Machado and a whole lot of C+ guys. I don't want to be too down before researching these guys but man, I was hoping for Mays and Lux along with Diaz.

We are talking about the O's...

Looking through our prospects lists, and i'm thinking Bannon and Kremer might start showing up somewhere after #16 or so.  Another way of looking at it is, we may have acquired 3 top 20 prospects in OUR system

I'm not sure if you guys have looked at their numbers, but Kremer, Bannon and Pop are all having excellent seasons.   All 3 will fit nicely into our top 15.

Edited by connja
Pop as a reliever might not be top prospect but could move fast through the system.

Dodgers get him for 66+ games.  We got plenty back.  It was that, something less from elsewhere, or a pick.

Very sound reasoning.  A solid return for the Orioles.

Solid deal. Valera looks like a utility infielder so meh and probably to early to tell on Pop so he's a lotto ticket. But Diaz and Bannon both look like solid gets. I'm more wait and see on Kremer but he's having a solid season. Hopefully the Orioles don't ruin him.

Looking at the stats, I guess Valera is our future Flaherty 🙂

Could he be a late bloomer like Melvin Mora?  Very similar minor league history to Mora before coming to Baltimore.

    • Sad as it is to say, Bud was way better.
    • Yeah, It was and we got unlucky not to win a WS with it.   Thinking back Bonilla (mostly) and his agent were masterful in ensuring he’d have an income most of the rest of his life. $1 million until 2035 by the Mets was masterful. Hard to believe the Mets would agree to it.    Getting paid $34 million and for 34 years after his retirement. I know deferred money is more common now. But, Bobby was ahead of the curve. Also, $1 million was more in 2001 than it is in today’s game. The other $500,000 partially from us until 2023 was also an extra 24 years of income.
    • And you know this how? I ask because I’m a restaurant guy that was in the process of buying/opening a restaurant in Westminster when the pandemic hit in March. My initial thought was on crabs (AUCE) and full service options for breakfast through dinner.    I spoke to several distributors and most of the crabs and crabmeat is from Louisiana and Texas. Here Maryland/Virginia product is mixed in during the season. In bulk, the Louisiana stuff is very affordable even for Jumbo Lump.    FYI, G&M and Timbuktu were owned by the same family for a considerable amount of years. I can’t say that I know if they still are but any change would’ve been in the last couple of years. Speaking of foreign crab meat, It’s Phillips that uses crab meat from a cove they created in Indonesia. They transported Blue Crab from here to there and it’s essentially farm raised, fed fish local to that area, and tastes off IMO. @CarrRun49 You can almost always get Backfin at Giant for around $12. It’s from South America, Peru as I recall. Which is much better than making it out of canned Salmon. The thought of that makes me want to 🤮  I think I’d rather not have them
    • Thank you for the video. I generally “scout” high school players and really hadn’t watched that much of him but he really has a sweet swing. His outfield play isn’t amazing but much better than we have marched out their since Markakis wasn’t resigned. Man that is a great swing!  I know I have said this before, but I was told 15-20 years ago that when you draft, you don’t want the 16 year old with a full beard because he is already peaking maturely but a 20 year old that can’t grow a beard has more to grow into. Not every gm goes with that, but this kid looks like a kid and has room to grow. Also with that logic, they haven’t peaked performance wise.  Physically I can see him turning into a Manny Ramirez body type(let’s hope he has that kind of career without whatever). Also why I like Rutschman, baby face with room to mature into a projectable body type. He reminds me of a Buster Posey at the same age.  Great job on this pick. I was never sold on Martin or Torkleson  (If any Os exects want to employ me, reach out and send me to Cuba!)😉
    • Every time I hear Crab cakes I think about Koco's Pub. Really miss those.
