2019 Trade Deadline

Recommended Posts

Teams are obsessing over player control and salary, that is one of the reasons why Givens is in high demand.  He also has a history of succeeding in the 7th and 8th innings, which most teams would put him in.  He's still a reliever, and while he will net a good return, its definitely not going to be any top 100 guys.  That ship sailed after the Chapman/Torres deal a few years ago.  

I suspect teams  are looking for value among the  shortish term expensive old guys that are hot and fill an immediate hole. They will happily throw some cash at a chance for the brass ring. Giving away the seed corn on a lottery ticket is an entirely different matter these days. 

Of course, if they think they are the smartest people in the room and can pry a relatively cost controlled, proven pitcher off of someone for some prospects they will do it.

I really hope to see us be able to load up on young talent similar to what we received in the Cashner trade. I would imagine in order to net guys with solid potential they’re going to be young and furthest away from the show. Guys currently in the dsl, rookie ball, ss, etc.

Morosi of MLB Network says the Orioles are talking to multiple teams about a Mancini deal.

Did Hyde blow our chance to deal Givens pitching him two days in a row which everyone knows is a problem for him?

Did anyone report yesterday the Brewers were interested in a Bundy deal? Before yesterdays game !

With Segura injured yesterday before our game will the Phillies be interested in Villar? He's better at 2B but played SS yesterday.

I hope someone will deal for Castro my least favorite pitcher. He must have pictures because they continue to let him blow leads.

Would Brooks be better coming out of the pen? He has been terrible his last two starts and looks really stressed when pitching. He may relax and improve with a move to the pen.

Can someone fix Tanner Scott? What a wasted talent.

If everyone knows that would mean other teams right?

Morosi seems like a nice guy but it seems to me he has thrown a lot of stuff against the wall over the years with trade rumors. 

When I see Heyman or Rosenthal run with it I would be more intrigued.

With Villar, I can definitely see a team wanting  him for depth but the Orioles may need to eat the majority of what is still owed to him.

Last year the players we acquired from NY for Britton were 40 man roster issues for NY.

We should definitely be targeting teams with 40 man roster issues. HOU and TB come to mind. 

Hyde has handled Givens terribly this year. I know Hyde’s job is to win, but is it really?  He’s rode Givens hard in certain situations. 

If Buck could Pitch Ubaldo, then a team with a .340 winning percentage could try Dillon Tate. 

Hyde hasn’t had a lot to work with, but the last thing you want to do is run a player into the ground. 

Givens will leave us and it might take him the rest of the year to recover, but he’ll be a top set up man for 2 years for a contender.

Just as an update about one of the deadline deals from last year...Gausman stunk it up again for Braves in his last start and may yet lose his rotation spot..Braves fan sites go nuts about his two pitch repertoire...lol and the Braves are paying Odays 9 million salary this year while he continues on the rehab.  Evan Phillips and Bruce Zimmermann and Brett Cumberland and Jean Encarnacion may yet turn out to be something or nothing for us..., but I don’t miss having either guy we dealt on this year’s team.

It was still a terrible trade. A pure pathetic salary dump. Gausman has been inconsistent his whole career, but he'd still be the #2 SP on our team. I didn't dive into the pitch info for his last start, but in general he's been much more successful when he's thrown his slider more.
