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.

    • Houston has also been able to acquire arms late in the draft or cheaply in the international market and develop them into trade assets. I'm prepping for Rule 5 draft stuff and it's unbelievable how many good arms they have in the minors that came out of nowhere (10+ round pick or older international signees). They all throw hard and miss bats. 
    • Hopefully the Nats finish this thing off today.  They have gone I think 81-40 since starting 19-31.  That is remarkable.  The Cardinals do what they always do in October....overachieve.  Thankfully, they are about to get stuffed by the much better team.  This will be a really good WS matchup regardless of who comes out of the AL. 
    • Eh, I don't really buy that in this case.  Liberatore is a lefty, has better mechanics, and more projection remaining, so I think there is a fair case for Liberatore then and now. It's really close though, Rodriguez is the better pitch at the moment, but no one really cares who is the better pitcher at 19 in low A ball. 
    • The old Liberatore vs Rodriguez debate. I think most “experts” will always try and rank Liberatore slightly higher than Rodriguez because they all criticized the O’s for “reaching” for Rodriguez. 
    • Someone pointed out before that Vaughn got pitched around his last year in NCAA. Let’s see what happens to Torkelson when/if he gets that treatment.  I don’t see how we could draft Torkelson.  Even if we trade Mancini, Mountcastle is still likely a 1B.  When team building I don’t think you pencil in your future 1B and DH spots first.   I’d like to see us draft a bat, but if the best SP is available then I’m open to that. I think that bats are safer picks and would help the system more.  Hopefully Detroit makes a mistake at 1:1 and we get the player Elias thinks is #1 overall. Lots of baseball to play till the draft. 
    • HOU got burned with taking Pitchers Appel and Aiken high. HOU has been grow the bats and buy the arms since then. Using their prospect bats to acquire proven SP.  I do think bats are safer picks over pitchers. Last draft we took lots of bats compared to pitchers. It could’ve been lots of factors at play, but I think it was a strategic decision.  Not having the number one pick in next years’ draft means we’ll likely be deciding on the 2nd best SP, Torkelson, or other NCAA and HS bats.    
    • I hope Buck gets the Phillies job.
