Villar Traded to Marlins for LHS Easton Lucas

I had estimated Bundy conservatively at 12M in surplus based on Steamer projections and a basic aging/arb estimate, Villar was at about 4.5M with the same methodology. Now this is using a linear $/WAR calculation, which isn’t the correct way to do it and the 4.5M was on the high side apparently. 

This is a 1 year estimate, right? Does it increase to $15-20 million over multiple years?

That's a fine comparison between the Orioles and the Marlins.  However one is being run by an Ivy League grad, the other is being run by a former Yankees shortstop who's got a penchant for banging supermodels and making bad baseball moves.  

You forgot the gift baskets after the dates with Captain O-ver-rated.

The Marlins' President of Baseball Operations (on paper) is Michael Hill, a Harvard grad.

Anyone pointing at the Marlins to say “why wont the Orioles do xyz when the Marlins will” presumes that Marlins have any idea what they are doing, and anything they have idea about isn’t completely crooked. I would never model my franchise after Miami.

I agree 100%
 

But the Logic for them kinda makes sense.

They have a heavy Latino following. So much so that they put Photos Villar and their other acquisition on a advertisement and sent it right out.

My guess is that they are hoping to be better. If they end up not being better and he has a good 1st half they have options.

obviously he will be owed somewhere between 3.5-5 million depending on the arb or agreed upon terms.

If they get a better prospect than they gave up to get him they are ahead of the game.Especially if he helped you sell tickets before the deadline.

It's great work if you can get it!

There are a lot of good players who got non-tendered. This tells me there is going to be a war when talks for the next CBA begin. If nothing else I would like to see a minimum salary floor put In place to discourage tanking and encourage teams to put Major League caliber products on the field. It's probably a pipe dream but I'm hopeful something in that direction will be done.

We haven't had a strike in... 25 years. That whole area of negotiations is dangerous territory if either side wants to push it.

I think this is wrong. He will be owed closer to $10 million. Right?

True, but then why tender Bundy who is in a very similar situation? If you going to go all cold and heartless, do you really think Bundy s going to bring much back in trade?

1.    Bundy will make less than Villar.

2.    Bundy has two years of control remaining and if he has a good first half his trade value could be stronger at the deadline than now.

3.   Watching a lineup minus Villar will be somewhat painful, but watching a rotation minus Bundy will be much more painful.    You’ve heard of “Spahn, Sain and pray for rain?”     This would be “Means, rain and pray for a hurricane.”   [Anyone know where I stole that from?]

He's talking about if they trade him mid-year, they would only be responsible for a portion of the salary.

$10.4M arb projection, but maybe signed at a smaller figure pre-arb.

Jeter will be more assimilating with a fellow SS, right? Say, 8 million?

Does Jeter actually negotiate contracts? :confused: What is his role with the Marlins?

Villar will have negotiating power if they're already advertising him. I think...

    • I would assume that he'd be happy with a 2 or 3 year extension
    • I find this kind of odd. Take Mookie - in the event that there's no season, he would both a) not be paid and b) become a free agent in the upcoming offseason. So not only does he make no money, he ages one more year and potentially gets less in free agency than he might have if he had played this season. That's two downsides for the player. Sure the team gets screwed on losing the players in the trade, but how is it that the MLBPA agreed to this? Unless I'm missing something.  A rebuilding team like the O's also loses a year of development AND control for its prospects. It's bad all around I guess.
    • I went to the store yesterday and it was a different, more serious vibe, then it was last week. There was this one guy that did manage to touch his face at least 30 times that I noticed.  Not sure if it was a physiological and psychological compulsion that was causing it but he needs to stay home and let his wife? shop by herself.
    • Yesterday I went to Tractor Supply to get chicken feed, and the the grocery store.  About half the folks in Tractor Supply were wearing masks (me included).  At the grocery store it was more like 5%. More were wearing gloves, which aren't as effective.  Only one of five or six cashiers were wearing anything protective.  On the way I saw a group of ~20 motorcyclists parked on the side of the road talking, standing within arms length of one another, wearing no obvious protection. I work for the DoD and we now have more-or-less mandatory masks for those going on station to do limited operations.  If you can't maintain six feet, but we're "strongly encouraged" in all cases, which in military speak means "you better do it, even if we can't technically order you to."
    • Why distinguish their salaries from everyone else’s on the team?    They would all be saved in that situation.    And I hope that doesn’t happen.    I won’t feel the slightest bit good about the O’s not having to pay Davis and Cobb if that means there’s no baseball this year. 
    • What’s your point? Queen played more of a OLB/DE role in college and the same with Braun. Both are expected to move to MLB at the NFL level.   Sure a blind squirrel will occasionally find a nut! Most 3rd and 4th round picks are filler. Mosley was a good player and drafted by the Ravens late in the 1st. What the Ravens need is their next great MLB. That’s the guy I’m after!
    • The major thing it means for the O's is that  a missed 2020 season would save them $37M.   23M for Davis and 14M for Cobb.  Davis will have 2/46M remaining on his contract and Cobb will have 1/15M left.
