Valencia can be traded in August. Doesn't need to be today. He will be available when some team suffers an injury to one of their platoon players.

Not sure if you guys heard........but my sources tell me that it's not Jones who we're moving right now.

I'm thinking that means it's almost certainly one or more players that go by another name.

I think we need to try and add international bonus slots as a part of any deals we make to keep us in a good position to sign VVM, especially with the Yankees & Marlins loading up on them the last 2 days.

So are the Orioles working on one trade or two? I am confused.

Since Peter retired, DD has stepped up his game or rather is being permitted to do what he do

I’m hearing Jones won’t be moving. My source seems to trust his sources.

That and  :confused:.  This reminds me of the first time I was in a casino on a Sunday and tried to watch about seven NFL games at once. I lost track of all of them. Except here it's as if some of the screens have real games and some have fake ones, but you don't know which is which. I sure don't, anyway.

Won't be long now.

Yup if you don't use context-neutral stats, sure.  MLB FOs don't evaluate pitchers using ERA...

Do they look at BB/9ip or OPS by LHB or WHIP?

I think you're being outsourced.

    • 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.
