2019 Trade Deadline

Recommended Posts

So we're really just talking about O'Day's salary since Gausman would have been traded either way. And you think the team is so strapped financially that they needed O'Day's $9M to cover everything you mentioned? The Orioles aren't a small market team, they're a mid-market team. They should have had the dollars to invest in everything you mentioned even with O'Day on the payroll. And a $100M payroll isn't what it used to be. It basically puts you in the bottom third in terms of payroll in this era.  

Just as a point of information, the total comp owed to O’Day that the Braves took on was $15 mm, not $9 mm.

- $3 mm last two months of 2018

- $8 mm for 2019 (excluding $1 mm deferred)

- $4 mm deferred comp payable 2020-23.   

 

O’Day’s contract called for $1 million each year from 2016-19 to be deferred, payable in equal installments from 2020-23. Perhaps as a sign of how desperate the Orioles were to move payroll, the Braves agreed to absorb the deferred obligations owed to O’Day, even those incurred from money deferred in earlier seasons. As a result, the Braves owe O’Day $1 million for each year of O’Day’s contract, including the time he spent in Baltimore in 2016, 2017, and 2018.

I think people are naive if they think that kind of money is unimportant to teams in the market position of the Orioles.   You can do a lot for the future of the team with $15 mm.

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?  

 

Because they're in a position to win now and we are not?

It's extremely important to a team in a rebuild. Extremely.

why anyone would want Smoak over Mancini is beyond me.

The league is filled with weak willed GMs who are afraid to take risks but need to seem like they're doing something.

I'm actually starting to agree with this a bit. There are a bunch of teams (Dodgers, Yankees, Astros even Twins) who have a legit WS cores and refuse to really go for it.

Wonder if “now more than ever” is because of his little tantrum the other day?
