If that is the case the rentals won't really be setting the market.

Regardless I'd rather he be aggressive instead of letting teams find relievers elsewhere.

Everyone is waiting to see what the Giants do over the next five days. They really are going to move the market.

Also, remember that this year there is only one trade deadline. There's no August 31st waiver trade deadline like in previous years. 

I'm interested to see how that changes things. Typically the August 31st trade deadline was somewhat insignificant, but famously resulted in the David Ortiz trade - and most recently the Verlander-DET-HOU swap and the Donaldson-CLE-TOR trade.

If Bundy has another good start this weekend that could ramp up some interest. Not necessarily because of his performance but just proving that he's fully healthy.  

Still think Givens is the only one who is traded 

I have Villar at + 150 to be traded.  Mancini at + 300 and Bundy at + 400.

The Cubs demoted Addison Russell. They had a UTIL IF need before then. 

Villar is not helping his cause. .501 OPS in his last 15 games. 

I would not be surprised if teams are interested in Alberto. I think we saw how valuable he can be to an NL team this series. He even PH and drew a walk. Plus he mashes LHP.

I like the July deadline only for us this season. It makes more teams buyers and less sellers. Hopefully this makes it more of a seller's market. Teams may also trade for "gambles", players like Bundy, who didn't look stellar early but have a chance to turn it around. They can't wait and see if they get better.

I know with the new rules that their is no waiver trade deadline but does that also mean their is no waiver moves allowed.  For example can players still be put on waivers and other teams claim them and the team putting through the wire either let him go or bring him back.  The reason why i thought of this is what if a team puts a guy like Givens on waivers the Angels for example claim him could we allow the Angels to get him and then in turn have a back door agreement type trade in the future for Givens with the Angels, similar to how Zoelner went to us for international money.

Snoozer of a deadline so far. I'm sure it'll get cranked up in the final 48 hours though. 

Yeah ....shocking how slow things are progressing. I'm guessing a lot of last minute stuff that includes teams seeing where they are after this weekend.

    • Life has really been showing me lately that I am old. I used to post a bunch at one time. Now I usually just read what posters have to say. I am in the process of moving from Florida to Wisconsin complicated by having a heart problem a week ago. When I get settled up there I will renew my long overdue subscription. I will probably never post like I used to as I coach football and in Florida that is basically year round.  I do really miss the conversations with bunch of guys on here that I used to participate in. Just haven't felt like I had kept up well enough to contribute much. But this is the best site on the Web I'm and has been for decades.
    • Tony:  Let me add that I would be willing to contribute more to keep the site going.  I know it is not completely a financial decision but if it will help I am willing to contribute.  I also there could be a creative way to keep it going in some form or another.  
    • Just take 2020 off and come back fresh when the O’s are respectable again.
    • I've been a member of this site for 12 years now, and before that I lurked for quite awhile.  This was the go to site for me.  Through this site I learned so much over the years, and the shared experiences I had here are priceless, and I wouldn't change it for anything in the world.  Tony (and the staff), thank you so so much for everything you've done throughout the years.  I hope that this site can continue and wouldn't mind at all a raising of the plus membership price if it means the site could continue.  If it doesn't, I will understand Tony.  You've brought me and countless other users knowledge, joy, and companionship.  For that we are very blessed.
    • Here's a series of brief notes on the DFAed players with significant team control remaining. In order of preference for the Orioles...(top 5 would be a clear back of the 40 man upgrade IMO, although Cotton and Greene are projects rather than immediate improvements) Luis Escobar 23yo, mid 90s, overpronated fastball with big horizontal, makings of two quality but low spin offspeed pitches Montana DuRapau 27yo super premium spin guy, 4 pitch 5'11" righty, needs to use curveball more, better. Jharel Cotton 27yo 5 pitch former top prospect, led by a elite changeup, been injured, reclaimation project, maybe in the pen Justin Shafer 27yo, solid pitch mix including above avg spin mid 90s FB, slider, hard cutter (90mph), rare change. Strikethrower, but lacks command Conner Greene 24yo righty, big stuff, mid-rotation or late inning, has never been able to throw enough strikes Nick Dini 26yo Bat first catcher, but not an everyday bat. fringe average catch and throw, questionable framing, better than Wynns maybe Drew Gagnon 29yo super low spin 4S FB, uses it up when he shouldn't, good changeup. Could be useful, limited upside Williams Jerez 27yo Mid-90s lefty, low spin FB, that he elevates and gets crushed, quality split, and a usable slider, poor command Taylor Guerrieri 26yo with premium curveball spin and solid command who lost the zone in 2019. Nestor Cortes Jr 24yo command and deception lefty, good k/bb, flyball pitcher hurt by juiced ball CD Pelham 24yo hard throwing lefty reliever, has t100, couldn't throw strikes in 2019 Arnaldo Hernandez 23yo righty, good changeup, hasn't been used in relief, doesn't work as a starter Dario Agrazal 24yo blah command based sinkerballer without a strikeout pitch Jorge Bonifacio 26yo plus run, fringe average glove COF, hit a little, but not enough Nick Martini 29yo LF with some bat control but without LF power
