2019 Trade Deadline

Texas is looking for controllable bats and is considering Mancini, meanwhile all I hear around here is that there's no way Mancini can be a part of the next good Orioles team and that he's too old or something.

And why would a smart, well run team like the Rays be considering him, too?  

 

Looking for and completing a deal are two different things.  I don't think the Orioles move Mancini because I don't think he would bring enough back.  But there is no reason why the Orioles should not listen, and teams like the Rays should absolutely check in and see what the price might be.  None of that has anything to do with the bolded line above.  While I think it is unlikely, I don't think it is out of the question.  Especially if for example, several pitchers thrived and arrived ahead of schedule.  In that case Mancini could well be a nugget.  Either way, he is probably the Orioles best current asset and as such should be shopped to see if someone would overpay.

You don't disagree with that do you?

straight up trade. Mancini for Forrest Whitley?

Pretty sure Mancini won’t be bringing back one of the top prospects in baseball. I was thinking more under the radar kinda guy that he has a little more knowledge of than other GM’s

No way the Astros give up Whitley for Mancini. Whitley is pretty much a consensus top 20 prospect and Mancini won't bring that big of a return.

Highly, HIGHLY unlikely. Whitley is among the top pitching prospects in baseball. He is rated as the 17th best overall prospect in baseball, and Mancini is not sniffing that kind of return. From Houston, I'd imagine the best prospect we could hope for would be 1B/LF Seth Beer-- rated as the 100th best prospect in baseball. I'd be very, very surprised to see Houston deal him for Mancini, but not outright shocked.

I actually think this is where Givens lands. Yanks already have a closer and set up guys so he gets put in middle relief/bridge guy where I think he's better. 

Doesn't seem to handle very high leverage situations well.

No shot. I think Mancini is unlikely to bring a top 100 guy, much less one of the top guys in baseball.

Also how is Mancini a fit for Houston? 

They have Gurriel at first and seem set at DH

I'm not sure, but we're speculating based off Jon Morosi's tweet.

If it is a deal with Houston the guy i think Elias may ask for is Fredius Nova.  That would be a low level young guy that would fit in with the pitching group down in A ball and has big upside.  He still a lottery ticket somewhat but projects well.

I imagine Elias will be going after BPA in any potential trades but if we trade Mancini I would love for a middle infielder to be the number one guy we get back in that deal.
