Orioles trade Cashner to Red Sox

That's what people say when they don't know a thing about the two players.  If they traded Cashner or a Kyle Stowers and a Gunnar Henderson some would probably be singing a different tune.

We know they are 17. They signed with Boston for practically nothing, So even Boston wasn’t that enthusiastic about them. In six years( maybe five years) they will be rule five eligible, so we will know then…

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. 

Maybe Cashner strains an oblique in his next start.  Maybe he starts pitching like Andrew Cashner again.

Because maybe the Red Sox want to deal now and you end up holding your Cashner in your hand.

No one wants him for next year.

Well, I certainly understand that…

You wait a week that's another check you have to cut him.

He has thus far...in a frank and transparent fashion.  I have not heard a Duquette-ism from him....He seems quite confident in his process of analytic decision  making, feels he has little reason to obscure this reasoning and has offered this very openly to us fans so far. 

That’s what I’ve heard too, I just hope it continues, and so do you.

Well this makes it a little bit more of a head scratcher. They gave them out for nothing and they’re paying most of his salary

Signing these guys is not an exact science. Sometimes the 80k and 200k guys are better than the 1M guys.  It would be great to get to see them play in the DSL before choosing.  That's what we just did.  How bout being able to watch all the U S. amateurs play in GCL or Aberdeen for a season before having to make your draft selections.  Somehow I think that would improve the hit percentages.

Anyway, I'm going to the store to get some ice cream.  I'll be back to check out the game thread with you bedwetters.

I hope that this trade tempers any expectations for any deals that we might be looking at for the rest of the summer.  Top 100 prospects, you ask?  HAHA!!

I said recently that I would be fine with O’s trading players for international lotto tickets, and that it would be a way to “make up” for not being big into the last few international signing periods. So I’m happy with this.
