We don't even need these two new prospects. Cedric Mullins and Richie Martin are our CF and SS of the future...Right? 

You spelled Cadyn Grenier wrong.

The news keeps getting better. 🙇‍♂️

I assume that Elias felt the quality of the prospects the O’s were getting in the deal made it worth agreeing to pay half of Cashner’a remaining salary for this year and his signing bonus.  Otherwise, why make the deal?  Don’t judge the trade based on how far away these prospects are from the majors or what they signed for last J2.  If Elias & Koby like these players, I’m willing to trust them on this and see how it plays out.  If anything, it’s clear the O’s just wanted to get rid of Cashner as quickly as they could, and there were only 2 teams showing legit interest.  Elias probably felt it was too risky to wait another couple weeks to hopefully increase his value further, when the opposite could happen and Cashner has been pitching great the last 2 months.  Trade him while he’s hot.

Gosh I hope he doesn't have to go to ownership to trade Cashner level assets.

Lou/John don't look at it as spending almost $5M to trade for 2 players that the Red Sox bought for under $400K combined.   Look at it as saving about $11.4M through next year.

What should be the $$$ threshold before asking for Lou/John to approve?

This is going to hurt badly this year, O's have no one that can fill Cashner's spot. The prospects are hopefully good ones in a few years, We'll see.

Does this close the door on a potential playoff berth?!?!?!?

Seriously?  If Elias has the level of control he's supposed to he shouldn't need approval for any deal that lowers payroll.

Plenty of international players that got paid on the cheap have gone on to have successful major league careers.  A current example is Ronald Acuna Jr., who signed for $100k with the Braves.  I think Luis Severino signed with the Yankees for like $70k.  Just because these guys weren’t highly thought of at the time they signed doesn’t mean they can’t develop into very good players, as they have.  We see plenty of players get big bonuses and bust (both domestic & international).  That’s why none of us can say for sure that this was a bad trade, because we can’t judge these guys based on what dollar amount they signed for.  I trust Mike Elias & Koby Perez on this one.

Do you think the White Sox regret trading Fernando Tatis Jr. in the deal for James Shields back in 2016?  At the time, Tatis Jr. wasn’t considered a stud prospect and was far away from the big leagues (and he was only 17), which is why the White Sox were willing to give him up and take on a past-his-prime Shields and his big salary.  But look what happened once Tatis got to San Diego?  He developed into a stud, and now the White Sox look pretty bad for making that trade, especially considering they were a fringe contender that year to begin with and Shields wasn’t going to suddenly turn back into the ace he was 3-4 years before that.  Cashner is probably at the same level now that Shields was at that time (maybe even slightly better), only with a much more manageable salary and a pending FA versus a long term albatross of a contract that Shields had.

Lots of good thoughts here. Also, I believe I saw that either Encarnacion or Carmona in our org signed for like 5-10k. I’m sure after 30 games of playing, basically a high school season, that Prado would be more coveted than he was.

Especially a trade this minor in the overall scheme.

Also pretty sure that the Rays starter last night, Chirinos, was signed for dirt cheap, too.

I’ll choose to view the trade through this lens.

We should leak the names of the other guys offered, let those guys know Boston wanted us to take them... create some Red Sox drama in the Latin American community. 

 

I don't think that would be worth the hit to Elias' reputation that he would suffer with the other teams.

Problem is, you can't just throw the towel in on the games and not play.  Someone has to pitch.  it stretches an already thin pitching staff to trade Cashner since he's been a lock to pitch 5-6 innings during most of his starts.  And Bundy is now on the DL. Cashner was one I was on the fence about trading of all of the people on the roster, especially with only one trade deadline this year.

Can someone who is upset about trading Andrew Cashner provide what you were expected to get in return?

I'm not really a fan of just appealing to authority but...just because you Mr. random poster on Orioles Hangouts hasn't heard of a prospect doesn't mean they are worthless...they're lotto tickets that I'm pretty sure the Orioles just didn't randomly pick.
