Oh no!  I'll stick with it even if we trade Givens and Mancini.  The dinner will probably never happen based on geography.  Let's just go with one "I told you so".

What are you talking about the Library is one of my all time favorite steak restaurant groups.

Agree with RZ and Drungo above and am surprised the folks knocking next year based on two trades as a team much worse than 2019.  We will have Hays (hopefully healthy and productive all season) with a nice upside and Mountcastle.  We should have a better bullpen than in 2018.

I thought Bundy pitched much better towards the end of 2019.  The success IIRC was against weaker teams, but he seemed to be missing the center of the plate and pitching more at the ends for that success.  I think it is good that we traded him.

I like the return - top 30 Angels prospect and two pretty decent prospects who could have gone higher in the 2019 draft.  I think that Elias, like MacPhail, wants strength in numbers and also wants guys who don't have to be on the 40 man.

Should I take my Baysox Bundy Bobblehead off the mantle?  Or at least dust it?

Bobby Bundy?

No biggie...I was just pointing it out.

 I understand, and I was just clarifying. It’s all good. I was working when I got the alert that the traded been made, and my initial comment was literally written from a sense of surprise. But I had read briefly somewhere that we had to put Matson on the 40 man or he would be available in the rule five draft. Someone else subsequently said that that is not true of Matson or of any of the other guys, which eliminates a lot of my complaints( I do not know which is correct, but if he is eligible for the rule five draft, then my complaint can be reinstated.)

The only complaint that remains is the standard one that Mike is apparently prioritizing quantity over quality, and these guys were low ranked prospects in a low ranked system.

So?  They had their moments.  I can enjoy players of that caliber.  You should try it.

I actually liked Sucre ... I thought he handled the pitchers well and really had some fire. Its a shame he's not a MLB hitter

I do too, and whether a player is a major league quality player is certainly debatable. By some standards, We only had two or three on the team all year, but that didn’t stop us from fielding a full 25!

His problems appeared to be more than that.

After watching some of his on field interaction with the pitchers and some other players, I get the impression That Sucre wasn’t terribly easy to deal with.

More likely to set that record this year, with only Means likely to make 30+ starts barring injury.

I mean more in 2022 if we're trying to maximize MLB wins and routinely pulling pitchers doing fine after 12-16 batters faced like every day is Rich Hill in the World Series day.

In 2020 I look for lots of JD Martinez homering off "Orioles SP" in the middle innings.

Here's Daniel Norris's "Super Opener" game log from the end of the 2019 season - I definitely expect teams to play around with optimizing middle distance pitching more rather than less over the next couple seasons.

So .... Just thinking out loud .... You lose 4 wins with Villar plus the wins below replacement for the rule 5 A level ballplayer that is no where near ready to play at the majors. Richie Martin was -.6 and played at AA. So this guy is proabably be worse.

And Bundy was worth 2.3 and David Hess was worth -1.1

So you've just lost 8+ games

I hope you understand that it doesn't work like that. It's just a data format to evaluate approximately with. It is not a version of how many wins are actually created.
