The Orioles under Dan had a shot at contending, so trading Mancini wouldn't have made sense.  Under Andy it maybe wouldn't have made sense either because those teams were closer to contending than this one.

I think current circumstances kind of compel considering it, with Mountcastle needing a 1B/DH spot and Sisco possibly needing one at least part-time.    The calculus is affected by whether Davis plays his way off the team or not.

.  I assume you are only and strictly referring to the sample size of the last 21 games when you are making these comparisons.  Davis OPS of .952 is only for the last 21 games.  He stands at .666 OPS overall for the year.  Trey Mancini is at .914 for the year to lead this team to date and Dwight Smith at .844 and they both have substantially more plate appearances thus far (more than 50 more) than Davis. 

Let’s not get too far ahead of ourselves.  

Yeah, TonyP and I are only talking about 4/13-forward.

I don't think that it is the type of move that Dan or Andy would make if they found themselves in this situation.

I expect regression from  Davis from the last 21 games as pitchers readjust, but we shall see.  If he is over .700 OPS at season’s end, I will be surprised.

Trade Mancini? He should be playing 1st. Davis should be in Texas fishing. 

A contender like the Tampa Bay Rays could use a slugger at 1B.  What if you could trade Mancini to Tampa for two top prospects and three good ones?   A team like Tampa especially would highly value Mancini because he's cheap.  Depends who the guys are, but that's how the O's get better faster.

I don't see Mancini bringing back two top prospects and three good ones.  How are you defining top and good?

Was that clearer? 

Yeah that's clearer, but I don't see why Dan or Andy would not trade Mancini in the same situation.  It's old man Angelos who likely wouldn't trade him.

You are right. I was thinking wrong.

Too much team control left.

Top means better than good.  Good means better than pretty good.  OK, you got me, one top prospect, two good ones, and two OK ones.

Top equals top 10?  Good equals top 30?  Something like that? 

The O's are also to the point where they need to worry about if the guys they acquire need to go on the 40.

I'm not sure why anyone would want to trade Mancini.  Relatively young, cheap, mashing.  Those are the types of players we've been whining that we don't have for years.

It's cavalier thinking that Mountcastle is going to produce in the majors and that we should just hand him a spot because..well, prospect status.

I'm not trying to pin you down to bring this up later, I'm curious.

I'm having a hard time guessing what is value actually is.

On one hand he's a bat only right handed hitter.  On the other hand he's been pretty productive in that role two of the last three seasons.

What do horses have to do with anything?

 

You trade Mancini because he isn't going to be around and affordable when the O's window opens again.  Are you looking to extend him?

    • Not trying to be smart, but I thought Cal had sold off his share of the Aberbeen, along with another of his minor league holders. Nobody said why, but, shortly later, his divorce became public, and people assume he was putting together her part of the holdings.
    • I'm don't think I'm making any large leaps assuming that Aberdeen is hands-off because of Cal Ripken.
    • Why should Delmarva get sacrificed?  After all, they were the Minor League Team of the Year and has a modern stadium in Salisbury.  Screw convenience... it's nice to have professional baseball come through the Eastern Shore since 1996 and I don't see why that should be tampered with.  An increase in affiliation could lead to the team putting more seats down the left and right side of the diamond to encourage more revenue to accommodate their increased affiliation.
    • At this point, this is throwing good money after bad.  Any appeal is almost certain to be doomed.  What error has the court committed to warrant review?  Angelos just lived through one of his biggest fears.  The Nats winning a World Series.
    • On the heels of a game where Sam Koch didn't punt once. Hoping this formats correctly:   Tm Year G Pnt Pnt/G   Rk Tm Year G Pnt Pnt/G 1 HOU 1990 16 34 2.13   1 BAL 2019 10 21 2.10 2 SDG 1982 9 23 2.56               3 SFO 1993 16 42 2.63               4 NOR 2018 16 43 2.69               5 STL 2001 16 43 2.69               6 LAR 2018 16 43 2.69               7 STL 2000 16 44 2.75               8 KAN 2018 16 45 2.81               9 NWE 2007 16 45 2.81               10 DEN 2008 16 46 2.88               11 NOR 2011 16 47 2.94   2 DAL 2019 10 29 2.90 12 SDG 2011 16 47 2.94   3 LAC 2019 10 29 2.90 13 DET 1971 14 42 3.00   4 ATL 2019 10 30 3.00 14 ATL 2016 16 48 3.00               15 IND 2006 16 48 3.00               16 SFO 1992 16 49 3.06               17 WAS 2016 16 49 3.06               18 DET 1972 14 43 3.07               19 NWE 2008 16 50 3.13   5 KAN 2019 10 31 3.10 20 MIA 1972 14 44 3.14              
    • If anyone predicted this is how Lamar would be at this point, I have my doubts about their veracity.  That being said, I remember the player RG3 was before he broke his knee, and he has never been the player since.  IF Lamar can stay healthy, his future looks very bright. Right before the season started, a caller into 105.7 asked about McSorely and his words were "IF God forbid something happened to Lamar. Rob Long got all indignant and unnecessarily confrontational. "Lemme ask you something why are you asking that question?  Why are YOU askin' that question?"
    • I don't think the premise is very different. JJ was traded for whatever we could get  because we didn't want to pay him his arb number, which would be the same thing happening to Villar. You can make a very reasonable case that Villar is a regression candidate for 2020. Like @weams mentioned.. nobody bit at the trade deadline last year when he was cheaper and having a career year, which I think is telling. Milwaukee practically handed him to us. It seems that we value him on this board much more than other league execs do. But like I've said three times now, I'm not trying to bash Villar or shoo him out of town. I'd be just fine if they decided to keep him and pay his arb salary. I'm just pointing out that it's not some egregious baseball sin to non-tender him. It's a reasonable alternative.
