Bauer to Reds as part of 3 team deal involving Cincy, Cleveland and San Diego.

Possibly Puig to Tribe.

Wouldn't expect the Indians to be willing to pay Puig.

I would love to see Elias be involved in a 3 team deal if only because the Orioles have never been creative in trades and I haven't seen a multi team Orioles trade ever that I can recall.

Sports Guy had probably 50 of them teed up for the O’s that never came to fruition.

Well, they got Puig, Franmil Reyes and Cody Allen.

I suppose the Indians are getting something from the Padres as well.

Oops saw that Logan Allen came in the deal.  So effectively the Padres got Taylor Trammell for him.

Not sure why the Reds are giving up multiple top prospects plus Puig for 1.5 seasons of Trevor Bauer. 

Maybe they think they can make a real run next year and that Bauer will put him over the edge.

Luke Voigt is having an MRI for a core injury. Someone might need a 1B. 

Chris Davis' contract would put the Yankees over the luxury tax threshold, which they have been actively trying to avoid. 😛

I’m surprise they want him at all, he’s a hothead. And giving up Bauer for him? There sure must be more to it than immediately apparent.

Maybe they hired Dan Duquette?

They gave up a year and a half of Bauer for a young cheap power hitting DH/COF, a top 100 LHP prospect, a decent AA pitching prospect, a low minors lottery ticket, and Puig. 

I find it funny referring to Puig as a hothead with no mention of Bauer's antics. He just threw a temper tantrum on the mound the other day.

    • Heard this little ditty tonight out of work.   Brand new.  
    • And tanking/not being good got them Harper, Strasburg, Rendon and a host of other talents.  Even if they win, it's a legit possibility that Rendon and Strasburg both depart via free agency, and without them, they've got a team that will hang a few games around .500, if they get the bullpen right. 
    • Yep, it's pretty clear what they are doing now. They're all in for this year which is a little weird, because I honestly don't think they are that great, but I guess this is the end of their run so might as well go for it!
    • That is where the accounting chicanery comes into play.  They still paying debt service on the money Angelos loaned the team?
    • I think this misrepresents the non-payroll expenses of the team.    Per Forbes, in 2018 the O’s had revenues of $251 mm, of which $42 mm were gate receipts.    The team reportedly had operating losses of $6.5 mm, and player expenses (salaries + benefits) of $161 mm.   So, that implies that other costs were $251 mm - $161 mm + $6.5 mm = $96.5 mm.    That’s more than paying trivial rent and a few coaches.      Extrapolating those numbers to this year, let’s assume non-gate revenue was flat, gate revenue was down proportionately to attendance (but it may have been worse), and player expenses were proportionate to payroll per BB-ref.   That leads to the following estimate:      Gate receipts $33.5 mm Other revenue: $209 mm Total revenue $242.5 mm Less: non-player expenses $96.5 mm Less: player expenses $94 mm  Net income:   $52.5 mm That’s probably too high, given that Elias has been investing in technology, infrastructure etc.   We’ll see what Forbes estimates next spring.     But certainly Elias had savings available to invest in other areas.
    • I am glad this OP was not around in the 1960s...1969-1971...average attendance was never even at 14,000 with the greatest teams of all time.  Guess what...still here.  I will love to look back on  this thread and some of these posts in three or four years when we are back in it.   And when we get back in it AND the Nats are a power team...maybe a true rivalry will exist and maybe even a Beltway Series.  A true rivalry will fire up new fans in both areas.  Either way, the Orioles are going nowhere. Not in 10 years, not in 15 years, not in 100 years.   No other location has Camden Yards, Babe Ruth’s birthplace, Cal, Frank, Brooks, Eddie, Earl and MLB is not going to leave this iconic ballpark and its tradition empty and abandoned to move to ummm Nashville...lol. My niece also is the agent now for Harbor East and other new downtown condos...they are as hot as anything in DC or anyplace else.
