Hard to see how Paul Fry is not a better option...must be the asking prices are too high or the Nats/Os issues.

These moves are so lame. GMs are just so risk averse nowadays that the deadline might never get back to its glory days.

Seems like people want every reliever and utility guy except Givens and Villar right now. 

Elias driving a hard bargain?

Big trade between Milwaukee and San Fran.  Bumgarner? 

 

Nope.  Pomeranz and Ray Black for Dubon.

Maybe. Seems like it's a bunch of relievers one tier worse than Givens right now who are getting traded. He's either gonna go real soon or people are really put off by a) Elias' asking price or b) Givens' recent suckage.

This is Elias' first hard test as a GM. Can he get value for his pieces? Does he hold on to them thinking they will have more value this off season or at next year's trading deadline?

With just a few hours to go, it sure is quiet.

It's a weird deadline without August. They really need to push it back - teams need more time to figure out if they're contenders.

Mancini could have more value this offseason. All it takes is one serious injury.

Givens and Villar I still expect to go. If not - that's pretty weird, but not the end of the world.

    • Here’s a comparison of the 2019 and 2020 bullpens.   Due to the shortened 2020 season, I’m focusing on rate stats: 2019: 5.79 ERA, 1.514 WHIP, 8.6 K/9, 2.12 K/BB, 4.04 IP/game, 50% save rate, 38% inherited runners scored,  2020: 3.90 ERA, 1.272 WHIP, 8.8 K/9, 2.27 K/BB,  4.19 IP/game, 61% save rate, 32% inherited runners scored Overall, a very solid improvement in every area.  We had a solidly average bullpen in 2020.     As an aside, in the course of looking at these stats I noticed that the Kansas City Royals had a 95% save rate last year (19/20) despite the fact that their bullpen ERA was a decent but not great 3.84.     That’s rather astounding, and unlikely to be repeated.     
    • I agree that most of these guys are completely replaceable...but it would likely be trading better players than these to get players that can probably be picked up for nothing.   Not sure what or who you think the Os should trade.
    • I cannot imagine how Cot’s projects Sanchez at $4 mm.   We’re talking about a guy who was non-tendered in 2019, was signed to a minor league deal by the Giants and later released, then was signed to a minor league contract by the White Sox and released again.    If the O’s offer him any kind of major league deal he should jump at it.
    • Who said anything about teams taking on these players?
    • You really think there are teams out there that want to take on these guys and go to arbitration with them?
    • I have zero desire to see Mullins get any amount of significant playing time and I have serious doubts the Os do either.  He has a spot on the team as your 4th/5th OFer type guy but he shouldn’t be anything more than that. Stewart I can see but, the team is telling us they will platoon him at best and his injury history isn’t exactly on his side. Not to mention, he does have an option remaining, so he could be in AAA.    Stewart brings a better walk rate but not sure what he can provide in the field (which isn’t much at all) makes up for anything else.  Not like Nunez is way older or super expensive. If Nunez was making 5+ million, it would be different.  But we are talking 2ish million here.  It’s nothing and his roster spot blocks nothing to begin the year. Again, this is 100% money driven...not roster management driven.
