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 would ask for Rodgers and Ben Bowden a young lefty for the back end of the pen that has closer stuff.

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.

    • Glad you enjoyed it.Not free  for non 2020 Birdland  members but coats are a good thing to donate.  I am just not sure what it accomplished. No former or current players or minor leaguers  Elias making the same speech for the seventh time this year. Maybe cleared out some inventory from the Oriole store.   What is a DD card? 
    • Thanks for the research, very much appreciated. This might be explained earlier in the decade long post but are the totals based on time spent on the DL/IL or total games missed due to injury even if a IL stint wasn't required?  
    • 49ers lose a trap game a home vs. ATL, fall back again to #5 seed.  NE & KC keep pressure on Ravens.
    • I think just take best player available in the first two rounds.  We need another interior lineman at some point in the draft..   T The good thing is our picks the last 2 years seem to be mostly working out so we don't have a ton of holes.  If we lose Judon we will need someone to replace him.  
    • 2010-19 Totals BAL 6,040 (3,303 position players, 954 starting pitchers, 1,783 relief pitchers) BOS 8,386 (4,051 position players, 1,558 starting pitchers, 2,777 relief pitchers) NYY 8,969 (4,322 position players, 1,929 starting pitchers, 2,718 relief pitchers) TBR 6,270 (3,044 position players, 1,544 starting pitchers, 1,682 relief pitchers) TOR 7,051 (3,095 position players, 1,841 starting pitchers, 2,115 relief pitchers)   As you can see, the Orioles were the healthiest team in the division over the decade, and strikingly, their starting pitchers were by far the healthiest.    The Yankees were the least healthy, and so were their starting pitchers.   None of that made much difference.    There are a couple of things I wanted to mention.    First, there were far more injuries in the second half of the decade than the first.    All five teams had more in the second five years: BAL 3003/3037 BOS 3947/4439 NYY 3970/4999 TBR 2267/4003 TOR 3224/3827 I don't know why, but it's getting harder to stay healthy. Another thing I thought was interesting is that the two teams whose position players missed the least time are the two teams that play their home games on artificial turf.    I've often heard people say how terrible it is to play on artificial turf and how it causes more injuries, wear and tear, etc.     Ten years of evidence does not support that.   It's been interesting to follow all this over the last decade, but also a lot of work, and I've had about enough.    Bottom line, the Orioles have not been particularly injury-prone over the last decade; in fact, it's been quite the opposite.   2014, the year we won the division, was almost miraculously healthy even though we lost Wieters for most of the year and Manny for half of it.    Our entire pitching staff missed 68 games due to injury that year, and the offense missed only 208 games total.
