Two 17 year old players in the DSL? I hope they have super high upside. Seems like a trade with a very low probability of paying off. 

As we have usually gotten in the last few years....NADA.

Another place states it would be 360 innings total in 2018-2019 and that he is at 249.1 combined which leaves 110.9 to become a player option.   Unlikely to get that many even without manipulation. 

That's for it to be a player option. He only needs to hit a combined 340 for the option to be guaranteed by both parties.

A 17 yo SS with decent numbers and a 17 yo CF with strong numbers.  Trust the process.

I'm not dissing the players in question.

And you think trading for these two kids makes any difference at all to those advisers? 

I'm guessing that it gets their attention.

Cashner has been on a roll. He has tomorrow and one more start before deadline. He also has an entire career for other teams to evaluate. 

Elias has only TWO teams even interested. Not like he had the makings of a bidding war. 

Cashner goes out and gets blown up tomorrow, what happens? He goes out and throws 6+ strong does it really get any better? 

Teams don’t pay for Cashners these days.

Luckily someone was available to capture Elio Prado's reaction that he'd just been traded:


Should do a thread using all images from The Wire.

If this was their best offer, why not wait a couple more weeks before trading Cashner? Maybe some key starters on contending teams go down with injuries which caused better offers to crop up. I just don’t get the rush.

    • Sorting of wishing the Orioles could play the Pirates 18 times a season right now instead of the Yankees, Rays, etc. 
    • One of my favorites from them/him. I'm still pretty torn up by all this. Him and Anthony Bourdain both, messed me up they were so f-ing stupid...  
    • Looks like an Israeli company has developed a test, hope it can be mass produced quickly.
    • Echoed.  I heard beat reporter Susan Slusser on the FG team preview podcast call Kemp the favorite.  Their lineup except Olson is exclusively RHH, so Kemp gets the edge on Barreto/Mateo there.  Plus they have Neuse hopelessly blocked by Chapman so they had him goofing with 2B Moustakas style last September.  And they took a Rule V infielder. Hanser Alberto might be Oakland's fourth string 2B. I am almost positive Oakland will keep whichever of Barreto/Mateo they like best to succeed Semien, who despite being beloved has likely played his way out of their price range. MLBTR has summarized: https://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2020/02/athletics-second-base-franklin-barreto-jorge-mateo-2020.html?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+MlbTradeRumors+(MLB+Trade+Rumors) The Tigers have Schoop, so if I'm figuring correctly we should have a shot at first claim if we want.  Perhaps Luke is thinking of just the right lowball token guy right now.
    • I put up a better version I have on my harddrive  
    • 3 years before he put it on vinyl! 1973. This is really the version that runs thru my head... besides the commercial version you've heard 10,000 times. Skip this^^^^^ Watch this one! vvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvv
    • That’s a worthwhile take, and not something to entirely rule out.  They pitch with different levels of maturity today so perhaps you’re more right than you think, but I value the speed changing ease that Hall can utilize and their stuff is otherwise close to even.  Ranking them closely is intelligent and there’s data to support you too.  Still, it’s hard to not have Hall higher due to ceiling height potential alone....it could end up higher and he’s further from his peak than Baumann is; two significant factors.   I don’t see him thriving at Norfolk initially either and he may not be in the class of their rotation at the season’s start.  8 to 13 starts into the year however it might be a case of him going up and never looking back.   Strong supporters of him like you and I probably expect this on some level.  That’s a mean 1-2 punch and I’m happy to have both in our colors.  I want lots of innings and lots of learning if there’s adversity.  Ornery Baumann could be devastating and having him in a tier by himself is logical.
