Well, I’m not one of them, but it was within the realm of possibility after the AS break. I still think at his rate of production up to that point he would have been a good candidate to tender a two year deal below his current rate. 

He has made adjustments in his swing and added value. Currently, he’s more valuable than Mancini and will likely cost a little more than was expected.

Certainly, paying the raise in arbitration would be reasonable considering his overall production, but if they want him even as a placeholder he’s going to cost a little more than what people thought. A lot of cost cutting maneuvers happening, too.

I've mentioned a 2-3 year deal at something like 5.5, 6.0, and 6.5. None of those number would make him hard to trade. We will have money coming off the books. Even if you have to had a half million per season the numbers are reasonable.

(AUGUST 25th)

 

With more than a month of games yet to be played and with him currently sitting at 19 Home Runs and 28 Stolen Bases for the season, I believe that Villar has a shot at 25/30, with an outside chance of 25/40.

First things first, though ........

How often do you expect to get the 2019 Villar?  He had a career year once before and regressed.  Pretty much why the brew crew wanted to give him away in the Schoop deal.  Sell high. He should be tradeable coming off this season.

Unless your getting value plus trading to move him is just dumb. 

Theyve by his own admission adjusted his swing.

If you believe this is the new and improved Villar then you tender or sign him to your type of deal, assuming he's willing.  If you think he's likely to revert back to pre-trade Villar you see what you can get.

I do not expect Villar to replicate 2019.   To be clear, Villar’s OPS stood at .713 as recently as July 24.    I’m glad he’s had a very hot month, but I don’t mistake a month-long hot streak for some fundamental change in Villar’s skill set.    And I happen to like his normal skill set just fine.

I liked him just fine before also. I think he provides good value even the .260 hitting version

This.  20 home runs, OPS over .800, and lots of steals.  But he's gonna be on the downside of his career most likely when we are competing again.  He should have some value in the off-season for a team looking for an average to slightly above average second baseman, which hopefully can lead the Orioles to two of a team's top 30 prospects or so.

He’s on some kind of hot streak. He really adds a lot to the lineup. Takes pressure off a lot of the guys below him in the order. I don’t see him getting traded until deadline time next year. 

This lineup is really “watchable” right now. If only we’d add Mountcastle.

    • Bailey appears to have been stretched out as a starter in the minors; understanding that he is a once through the order kinda guy, what’s the thought about him being a starter for us? An opener?
    • Now that the Rule 5 is over, Givens looks like the next domino to fall. I just don’t see him building value during the season. We’re going to be in such a mad scramble to cover innings with multi inning relievers. Givens won’t be used in a traditional “closer” role. He’d be used in a “fire stopper” role and wouldn’t see too many easy innings to pad his stats.  The reliever market looks like its moving too. The Yankees know Givens’ value, and need a Betances replacement. Now that the Rule 5 is over we can trade without having to worry about players not being protected from the MLB and MILB Rule 5 draft. 
    • I’m still holding out hope that the “look for bad contracts” quote that Connolly reported was to attempt to trade Davis. The taking back money part could be to take back a littler more than the 69 million left on his deal. 
    • Just wait until Ed Howard comes out driving the ball this spring or Reid Detmers gains a couple ticks of velocity or Zamora’s bat takes off. Not saying those things will happen, but there are guys who could jump into that top 3 discussion. Plus I’d argue Gonzales should already be in that discussion.
    • I was thinking the same thing. Look at the 2019 draft from pick #8 on. We also picked up Hanhold and Sulser at the end of the year. Now we’ve added these 8 pitchers. All NCAA pitchers with the exception of Diplan.  Its clear that we have a plan. It will make the losing at the mlb level easier next year. We’re going to see some deep staffs from Delmarva - Norfolk. Two thoughts... we still have trade chips, and we still have waivers. Last year we picked up Alberto and Austin Brice off of waivers. Both had huge years. It’s just a shame we let go of Brice, but that was before Elias had a chance to evaluate our pitching. 
    • Two guys that both can go multi innings and will help the depth of the MLB staff next year. Elias has really improved the depth of pitching in the org since last June’s draft. It’s going to be noticeable from Delmarva - Baltimore, with Baltimore lagging behind, but we’re going to see some really deep milb staff’s to give us hope for the future. 
    • Both have a chance to stick.   Bailey is pretty short at 5-10, 175.   Big jump from AA makes them more likely to begin in the pen.
