Orioles trading Bundy?

He was OK in 2019, the projection system thought he got really lucky with HR suppression and BABIP, which I tend to agree with. 

For a control guy isn't that always the case? My question is really did he lose something last year  or is there an injury or ???

Whoa, what happened to him? He was the DD trade I regretted most.

Regression to the mean and wear and tear.

That’s surprising to me but I will trust your word on it over what I think. I just watch the games and his stats don’t look good. Anyone with an ERA over or around 5 constitutes a below average pitcher in my mind...though I’m aware I am oversimplifying. I just don’t want to see him gone for the sake of moving him. 

Only 61 starting pitchers this year had an ERA under 5 in 2019 (min innings 160).  So that's like 2 for each team.  Dylan seems to me like an average starter with upside and a cheap contract.   Just about any team could use him.  

That's why I agree, only trade him if you are getting something of great value in return.

I hope you’re right. I’m just having trouble imagining any team would give up anyone with actual upside to a guy who not only below average but starting the arbitration process. If they do, that’s great and I’ll be happy.

He's a young, affordable pitcher with two years of control. He throws innings. There's reason to believe he could be pretty good if he can figure out a way to limit homeruns - which might get better by just leaving the AL East and Camden Yards.

Not saying Bundy is some great pitcher, but he probably gets $10M+ if he's a free agent. He's got some value.

Nothing happened to him.   The projection system doesn’t like him, is all.   He was 10-7, 3.55 ERA, 125 ERA+, 1.29 WHIP last year.   For his career he has a 3.91 ERA, 110 ERA+, 1.30 WHIP.   Fangraphs (Steamer) projects him for 5.41 ERA and 1.50 WHIP next year.    Good for them.     To me, he’s a solid starting pitcher until proven otherwise.

Roch gonna Roch.  I like him, but the Orioles must tell him next to nothing about player management type stuff.

He lost his sources in the change over. And Dempsey isn't leaking to him anymore.

Haha, he then immediately craps on my point by breaking the Villar waivers news.

I think they tell him stuff.  You read how he states that Bundy's salary is steep for a rebuilding team.  That is him working the propaganda.
