Dan Duquette did pretty well with July 2018 trades

I think if somebody actually offered this to Elias, he would have taken the offer.

I believe, the offers if any, came in on the low side, and Elias chose to keep him.

I have nothing concrete to base this on, just keyboard GMing. :)

He definitely didn’t get that offer at the deadline, but Villar did have a huge 2nd half. Also, there should be a lot more teams thinking they can compete in the offseason versus the few at the deadline.

I think that would be a return with out the money baggage. Maybe. With it? No way. He is not net valuable. 

On a one year deal he’s really low risk. Even at $9 million. Whether people want to harp on his SS defense or not, the fact is for one year he would be fine. 

What are the other Middle IF options available this offseason?  I’m not saying we’re going to get some huge package for Villar, but I think we’ll get a decent/good return. 

Teams are being really tight with their prospects, so a “good” return is likely 2 top org 30 prospects in the lower minors with high upside. 

Would a “contender” rather have Villar on a one year deal or Didi on a multi year deal?  

Just off the top of my head here are some potential fits,

NYY - SS if they don’t bring back Didi

Oak - 2B if they want to move on from Profar

Cinncy - SS if they don’t bring back Isglesias

Clev - 2B Kipnis replacement

Bos - 2B Pedroia might be done. Holt FA. 

Cubs - SS/2B Villar buys them a year with Hoerner in the minors, and gives them a table setter.

I think it's safe to assume they won't trade for Gerardo Parra and sign Travis Snider, etc. 

Straily should have been wildly better than he was, that's a pretty weird one. 

Right. Straily and Karns didn’t work out, but were logical transactions. There’s no need to list all the transactions under the previous regime that were badly thought out, illogical, and expensive.

We will have some trades/FA signings fail, but they won’t be stupid.

I hope so but bad deals happen and everyone has some sort of blindspot that can show up.  I don't think it is fair to Elias to just assume he won't make a mistake of this nature if he's here long enough.

I'll buy all of the potential suitors you listed save for the Yankees. I think it's Didi or bust for them at SS. With D.J. LeMahieu having a big year and Gleybar Torres more than capable at SS those two could be the primary options up the middle. Tyler Wade isn't great, but he and Thairo Estrada are options as back-ups. Plus, with Miguel Andujar coming back and Gio Urshela's breakout year, we could see Urshela get some chances elsewhere in the infield.

I'd rule out Cleveland.  I don't see them spending for Villar.

Only Britton is still with the team to which he was traded, so, from that standpoint, the O's "won."   I'm sure it was discussed a while back what if Manny was dealt the prior offseason?   Could Dan have obtained more, at the time?  Who knows what else was offered for any of them in July?

O’Day has pitched in three playoff games for the Braves.

Facing a grand total of 3 batters officially,  while also allowing a hit.  Which seems pretty difficult to do but I guess there was a CS.

The immediate and future value we received was far above the immediate and future value our trade partners received.

So, yes, DD did do pretty well with those trades, overall.

I think he did a good job with the 2018 trade deadline deals he made.  I think he failed hard at the pre 2018 season trades he didnt make.

We have no idea of the circumstances involving his pre 2018 activities, considering the boys hadn't taken over yet, and King Peter was in charge.

I don’t think we really know exactly when that transition occurred.   Peter hasn’t been seen or quoted in a few years now.   What’s been going on behind the scenes is unclear.

I’d say Brady and Buck had more say than Peter Angelos since after the Davis deal. Which Peter clearly orchestrated overruling his GM.

So you don’t sign an aging slugger to a 175 million dollar deal and then trade off your assets right away. You clearly think you own a window.

No, but, it doesnt take a rocket scientist to see a culture change, between allowing a fire sale, and testing international waters. Which Daddy was greatly opposed to.

I’m going to separate those two things.    The fire sale came at a point where the team had completely collapsed and there was no other rational choice.    I don’t think that reflected a culture change.   In fact, the O’s had a fire sale back in 2000 under circumstances that were a lot less dire, while Peter was clearly in full control.   
 

The international stuff, I agree seems likely to be the result of the sons taking over control.

    • 8 games left and he is now at 92 at-bats after getting 3 at-bats in each of the last 3 games (11 plate appearances total). Helps keep the at-bats down when the team can't score any runs. Would need 38 at-bats over the final 8 games to lose rookie/prospect eligibility. Mountcastle has only had 5 at-bats in 3 games thus far this season, so the chances of him getting 5 at-bats in 6 of his final 8 games are pretty much non-existent. 
    • As of 9-19 Sisco  0 PB 13 WP -3 dRS -2.7 dWAR  Overall 0.3 fWAR Severino  5 PB 15 WP -1DRS dWAR. 04 Overall .7 fWAR  I included wild pitches Because it can be debatable whether the blame should be on the catcher or the pitcher, but Sisco Is clearly better at stopping pitches. But neither of these guys will make any other team go googly eyed.
    • This is where Sisco is today the 19th. He has improved, in K and BB rats especially, but I don’t think anyone is going to be in a rush to trade anything meaningful for him. His defense remains bad and he offers nothing as a runner.  32.4 K rate .340 BABIP .235 AVG .381 OBP 125 WRC .03 fWAR
    • I’m pretty sure he would be claimed, but that would actually be good for the Orioles. If he does, he gets the benefit of coaching from the new team, and we can watch him develop, or not, on a real life stage. If it is unlikely that he does well Enough to stick, when he returns to us, we will have had the benefit of the empty roster spot, but also the benefit another team coaching, and whatever experience he has on the major league stage, if he gets that far. And when he returns to us, we will have that much more knowledge and can deal with him more effectively. Of course there’s always the risk that he makes it all the way with his new team, and I guess that’s the risk we have to take. After all, TJ McFarland has had a pretty good career throwing in the upper 80s.
    • Severino is the one of those that I can best imagine attaining some actual market value. https://blogs.fangraphs.com/2020-positional-power-rankings-catcher/ The team will need to wait out the Realmuto bidding for the good teams that need a catcher.  If we just guess the Phillies retain, the bottom-tier catching situations from this summer on clubs that perhaps mean to contend in 2021 look like: COL - happy to do business with them again DET - Schoop repping the former Oriole brand well WAS - haha.  Imagine the WS tenure helps the incumbents CIN - will try not to have a Tyler Mahle infatuation here, they could maybe use Alberto too.  Nunez as fill-in with Votto salary relief? NYM - ibid Colorado HOU - do Elias Sig still have some nuanced favorites even James Click doesn't have his arms around yet?
    • By the 1 is a fluke, 2 is a trend notion, now as the PTBNL's get named I'm curious to see if it is all July 2 guys from 2-3 years ago.  It's as if we're retroactively doing some 2018/2019 stuff. Unless of course it's a Bundy basket type pitcher we'll all not quite understand with what we have in view.
