Who is next?

Recommended Posts

Cashner traded yesterday afternoon to Boston for prospects. A little over 2 weeks left until the deadline. Who is next to go if anyone? I don't see Bundy having much value return or fit for contenders right now, and I think O's hang on to Trey. IMO the logical choice is Givens. Obviously there is no rush to trade him, but the reliever market always picks up closer to the deadline. I know his ERA is a little bloated this year, but he's shown he can be a multi-inning option at some points with strong K numbers. What is an appropriate return for Givens?

A couple of low level prospects.

Unfortunately outside of MAYBE Mancini this is all anyone will get us back. The only way I see us landing a top prospect is if there’s one Elias and get don’t value in the system that some other team does and they packaged him in with a player on the MLB roster. But that’s wishful thinking.

Givens can bring back something.  Teams always need bullpen help and he striking out 12.8/9.  He's only making 2.15M and he's got two more years of team control.

All I want back is 17 year old DSL prospects. 

You guys are gonna rue the day that Elias traded Cashner for two 17 year old DSL prospects because I'm just going to say thats all I want back in every make believe trade thread for the next year.  

And I don't just want ANY 17 year old DSL prospects, I want ones with no video and no pictures and only murky scouting reports to further annoy everyone here.  I don't even want 17 year old DSL prospects that have been ranked on a 20-80 scale, I want as little information about these guys as possible.  Even what they signed for is maybe a little too much information but I don't see how that's avoidable.  

You could go next level and scour names from the rosters of the DSL teams.  For instance someone mentions the Cardinals for Mancini, Bam, Engels Martinez and Yordy Richard.

Done.  I want all those guys.

I'd bet on givens as next to go too. He's got control through 2022 and has solid strike out numbers. Keep an eye on the yankees who might lose chapman to FA.

I have a hunch Mancini goes because it would be selling high which is smart but not for the return some people expect

I'd say either Givens or Villar is next. Mancini is ice cold and Bundy is hurt so I think they'll both be here after the deadline.

Mancini isn’t bringing back anything.

If Cashner brought back X, can Givens be expected To bring back the same or more? He’s younger, cheaper, possibly better, and he would fill arguably a more important role.

 On the other hand, he’s been pretty mediocre this season…

Givens is next.  Low level prospects in A ball or lower.  Elias already showed his preference for high/risk high reward.

    • I don't imagine Mason Williams will be able to play the next few days so we will probably get to see more of Hays on this homestand.
    • From a purely impersonal point of view, I agree with you.    But in the real world, guys who have been with the club most of the year and have made some contributions aren’t going to be completely cut off.    They’ll get tossed a bone here and there.     And yes, I realize that one can debate whether Smith or Wilkerson  “made some contributions.”    
    • It was intended as a wisecrack.    The mores of 1976 weren’t the same as today.    Believe me, Weaver said a lot worse.     As to Cuellar, I understand Weaver made the remark after Cuellar complained about not getting enough starts in 1976, a year in which he went 4-13 with a 4.96 ERA (66 ERA+).    To me it was just Weaver’s colorful way of saying that he felt he’d given Cuellar plenty of chances that year.    Not a comment on Cuellar’s overall performance during his career.    And my point in quoting Weaver was that Cuellar got a lot more chances that year than a pitcher without his track record would have gotten.     Even Earl Weaver believed that a guy who had earned it over a long period of time deserved some rope.   Buck was far from alone in that regard.   
    • They have to many players on the team.  I think they should be evaluating the guys who need evaluating.  I think we can close the book on Smith and Wilkerson.
    • I would keep Villar.  He is a good major league player.  We have too few of them to give them away.
    • It was a cheap shot on his first wife as well.
    • I haven't done the full 40-man eval but I'd protect him over the other guys you listed. Would the plus curve and the slider that is more slurrvy, I think he's got a pretty good chance of being a solid bullpen arm. From July to the end of the year batters slashed .147/.284/.206/.490 off him with a 0.47 ERA over 19.1 IP with 22 Ks and 11 BBs. Agreed the fastball command needs to tighten up a bit but at 93-95, it has enough on it to keep guys honest even when he not commanding as well.
