2019 MLB Winter Meetings Grande Thread

Angels gave away their first round pick from 2019 (Wilson) so the Giants would take on Cozart's $12.66M contract for 2020 in exchange for cash and a PTBNL. Wish the Orioles had made this deal.

And here I heard that they were willing to spend whatever it took this offseason.

This Cole auction is demanding.  I share the wish - that would have been a good shot at a 2022 infielder.

According to Fangraphs, the 15th pick in the draft is worth $18.4 million. My guess is that the cash that the Giants are sending is the equivalent of Wilson's $3.4 million signing bonus, if so a pretty good deal for the Giants, assuming Wilson is/was a reasonable pick at #15.

Gausman to Giants for a pretty big number, that'll have to help their Cole dark horse status.

Didi to Phillies for 1-year, may work nicely if Kingery can handle CF.

Somebody saving 12.6 million dollars and giving up their top draft pick from last year to do so. 

Seems crazy to me.

    • Sorting of wishing the Orioles could play the Pirates 18 times a season right now instead of the Yankees, Rays, etc. 
    • One of my favorites from them/him. I'm still pretty torn up by all this. Him and Anthony Bourdain both, messed me up they were so f-ing stupid...  
    • Looks like an Israeli company has developed a test, hope it can be mass produced quickly.
    • Echoed.  I heard beat reporter Susan Slusser on the FG team preview podcast call Kemp the favorite.  Their lineup except Olson is exclusively RHH, so Kemp gets the edge on Barreto/Mateo there.  Plus they have Neuse hopelessly blocked by Chapman so they had him goofing with 2B Moustakas style last September.  And they took a Rule V infielder. Hanser Alberto might be Oakland's fourth string 2B. I am almost positive Oakland will keep whichever of Barreto/Mateo they like best to succeed Semien, who despite being beloved has likely played his way out of their price range. MLBTR has summarized: https://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2020/02/athletics-second-base-franklin-barreto-jorge-mateo-2020.html?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+MlbTradeRumors+(MLB+Trade+Rumors) The Tigers have Schoop, so if I'm figuring correctly we should have a shot at first claim if we want.  Perhaps Luke is thinking of just the right lowball token guy right now.
    • I put up a better version I have on my harddrive  
    • 3 years before he put it on vinyl! 1973. This is really the version that runs thru my head... besides the commercial version you've heard 10,000 times. Skip this^^^^^ Watch this one! vvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvv
    • That’s a worthwhile take, and not something to entirely rule out.  They pitch with different levels of maturity today so perhaps you’re more right than you think, but I value the speed changing ease that Hall can utilize and their stuff is otherwise close to even.  Ranking them closely is intelligent and there’s data to support you too.  Still, it’s hard to not have Hall higher due to ceiling height potential alone....it could end up higher and he’s further from his peak than Baumann is; two significant factors.   I don’t see him thriving at Norfolk initially either and he may not be in the class of their rotation at the season’s start.  8 to 13 starts into the year however it might be a case of him going up and never looking back.   Strong supporters of him like you and I probably expect this on some level.  That’s a mean 1-2 punch and I’m happy to have both in our colors.  I want lots of innings and lots of learning if there’s adversity.  Ornery Baumann could be devastating and having him in a tier by himself is logical.
