Sure. Hometown boy.

I think we'll see guys like Britton and Jones moved before the deadline and guys like Schoop and Gausman made available during the offseason. Maybe even Bundy.

Yup...go after Rodgers and then ask for some other players, too!  :)

Gray is currently 28 he was traded July 31st 2017 it is now July 19th 2018 less then a year from the trade and he had two birthdays in less then a year.  Please tell me how in the world that happened

If this were Germany, it would be only one birthday in that time span.  But we live in the US, so Gray has celebrated two birthdays in less than a year.

I wouldn't be looking to trade young, controllable pitching.  At least not yet.  They have enough chips to move between now and 7/31 to take up their focus.  I wouldn't look to move Gausman until the offseason prior to him hitting FA, possibly the trade deadline of the season before.  Shoot, he's still has a chance to take the next step, especially if we have young players playing better defense next year.  Yes, we should rebuild, but I also think we should focus on 2019 and trying to have a good rotation and defense.  That'll at least (hopefully) keep the team somewhat respectable (and watchable).  If anything, I'd look to move Cobb and Cashner this offseason before Gausman and Bundy.  Not as much value, but older and more expensive.

I agree with those who believe we have seen Gausman's ceiling.  He just doesn't get the K's that someone with his stuff seemingly should.  I think we should trade him now as he has had decent success, durability, and still has the "potential" card.  This is probably the highest his value will be, and we are not likely to be competitive before he hits free agency.

I would not trade Bundy, I think he has another level he has yet to reach.

I thought Colorado might have some interest in Trumbo as a 1B. Maybe Gausman could convince them to take Trumbo's contract.

Fortunately, Trumbo only has one more year.   I don't think I'd want to drag down Gausman's value by teeming him with Trumbo in a deal.

That's where I've been saying we should send him.  Send the kid home.  They're only 2 GB of the Mannywood Dodgers.

I'd offer Gausman to the Yankees. They are rumored to be interested in Hamels and Happ who are said to be high price rentals. The yanks might be willing to justify paying a high price for a guy with three years of control. Luke said Oakland and that'd be a good win now and build for the future move for them.

I would be fully on board with anyone being dealt.    Gausman seems like an ideal guy to look into dealing right now.   Let someone make you the "I can't refuse it" offer.

That is my thinking.  

I don’t know if it is Gausman or the organization, but he should be a number one type starter with his arm.

    • Hard to put much stock into what guys like Al Davis says. There is a host of reasons for the team to say in Baltimore. Just because there is a wild arse rumor floating that the team is looking into moving, doesnt make it true, or a probability, either.
    • I want to believe this is true, but I can't get over the fact that Jaime Moyers come along very infrequently, and most often as guys who used to throw harder but have transitioned to pitchability types at the end of their careers. He's not very high on my personal list even though he's clearly an exceptional MiL pitcher. Hopefully I'm wrong.
    • I was worried about the injuries.  Wasn't a risk I was willing to take that high.
    • I was thinking about this the other day. There were quite a few people here that felt like he was the better pick at the time. I really didn't post much then, or now either, but I really liked him as a player.    Bundy was a good selection at the time. He's had a decent career in the grand scheme of things, just not on the level of Rendon.
    • He sounds very much like Ryan Mountcastle, at a high level at least. Profiles as a bat first guy who won't stick at short. With that said, hopefully he doesn't have an obviously deficient arm like Mountcastle. If he turns into a 3B eventually, which is what it sounds like to me, that bat could be a real plus. A ton of development between now and then though. I'd expect them to take it slow with him.
    • Kinga Glyk is the name of the bassist.
    • Am curious your opinion... Mine was generally that hard contact is the hardest skill to teach, and that transferring from contact to power was easier than the opposite. When you have a straight power approach and you're on, it's glorious. However, when you're not in a groove, it gets really ugly. I don't recommend that approach for pretty much anyone. Even supremely talented hitters like Giancarlo Stanton can lose value quickly when they lose the line drive approach to their game. Alternatively, when you're making hard line drive contact regularly, it's easier to let yourself go and crush some balls, IMO. It's when you do too much of that approach that your swing starts to develop real holes. Well, this is all my personal experience, at least.
