I read most of the comments, and I think this is a good summary. While I wasn't counting, I think those in Category A are the clear majority.

Several posters were critical of Elias making trading Cashner so early, eliminating teams that will try but fail to acquire higher-value starters and might then lower their sights to Cashner later in the month.  

Us homers will spin it that ME was proactive! 😛

Manfred can grudgingly change the parameters of baseball,  but DON'T change the very game of baseball.

I'll be interested to see what Oakland gave up for Homer Bailey today.

Bailey is a year older than Cashner.   His stats this year aren't nearly as good even though he pitches in less of a hitter's park.   But their FIPs are about the same.  

Bailey is on a 1 year, $23M contract so if you ignore the vesting option that Cashner has, that is similar too.

If KC got legitimate rated prospects for Bailey, that would make me more disappointed in what we got for Cashner.

I think he likes the fact people are talking about it. Publicity.

    • Another article on Reed from May 2019.  The first 33 games of 2019 have featured a paltry .205/.282/.410 slash as a 24-year-old in Double-A. An 84 wRC+ despite being slightly older than his average competition in the Texas League. Those numbers often describe a prospect afterthought, especially with most statistical categories beginning to normalize. Yet, a look under the hood suggests Reed is on the verge of a breakout that could make him a hot commodity throughout the prospect community before the end of the regular season. https://prospects365.com/2019/05/18/buddy-reed-and-buying-before-a-breakout/
    • It was a heck of a lot better than 2000-2009.  2012 was a truly great year, and 2014 wasn't bad, either.  And hopefully we look back at '19 as the year we finally got on track to having a top-to-bottom modern organization for the first time since the 1970s.
    • OK, I will exhale now.    Have a great Thanksgiving, Tony, and enjoy your time off!
    • Actually he would have to be up by the beginning of 2024, because he would be out of options at that point, using his three option years in 2021, 2022 and 2023, which could potentially further mess up his development.
    • If you're taking Javier and having him mostly sit the bench or hit .100 for all of 2020 I think you'd be looking at him as the possible shortstop in 2024.  He was miserable in low A last year.  On a normal track he'd probably go back there in 2020.  Instead you'd have him essentially miss the year, just working out with the O's.  You probably put him in Frederick in 2021. Maybe if he's really good he ends the year in Bowie.  Most of the year in AA in 2022.  If things work out well he's in AAA in '23, maybe a late callup.  But being more conservative you're looking at mid-year 2024.  Things could break better, his talent really comes out and he's ahead of that schedule.  But in no way do you expect him to be the MLB shortstop in '22.
    • In my opinion, you are WAY too worried about Mountcastle’s defense.    He’s not some klutz out there.    He has a weak arm.    The fact that he played 3 seasons on the left side of the infield tells you that he has the athleticism to play 1B or COF at a reasonably good level.       As to whether I’d lock him up now at that price, it’s a little tough to say.   If you think he’s likely to be about on the level with a Josh Bell or Trey Mancini, it’s probably worth the risk.    If you think he’s more of a Mitch Moreland level bat, then probably not.       And before people start poo-pooing Mitch Moreland, the guy has had a respectable 10-year career in the majors and had a career .883 OPS in the minors.    Most top 100 prospects would love to have Moreland’s career.
