Mountcastle should have the opportunity to play outfield. I don't care about Davis but I don't see the rush on Diaz when he can still get intrasquad reps without costing service time or holding back anyone else's development.

It appears that Mountcastle is a left fielder. Like Juan Soto is.

They always do. Maybe they'll get cash. 

Cash is irrelevant Mike ..... If they got anything less them a good prospect it was just plain stupid.

The Orioles had turned down several offers for Bleier until the return became what Elias wanted. It's not cash. It was a joke. A Bradford joke.

No reason for this team to pay a 33 year-old reliever more than the minimum.

Best case scenario the O's will be competitive in 2022 at which point Bleier will be 35 and in his third and final year of arbitration and thus unlikely to have any surplus value.

I agree, if they got something for him. A dump would just be stupid. Besides, let’s not pretend he’s making millions. He’s making a prorated share of 900,000. 
 

Plus if they are ever going to win they will need competent relief pitchers.

Getting defensive reps at any position is what you can do in intrasquad games at any level.  Offensive reps - I don't buy it.    

I think value exists in getting outfield reps in a major league stadium if you are going to be a ML outfielder.

The real question will be, what was the right price? And we will wait until October to find out

Either they got something for him, or, if they got nothing, they can trade an equivalent nothing when they need his 2022 equivalent when they hope to be competitive.

Re: Bleier. If we won’t know the return until October, why continue to argue about it now? Instead let’s argue about the return we’re going to get for the next guy we trade?

We can even have a little raffle to attempt to determine who the next guy traded will be?

Iglesias. Cobb. Alberto.

Nunez, Givens

I would be pretty surprised if they traded Nunez. He won't be a free agent until after the 2024 season. 

Obviously everybody is available at the right price, but I don't expect the Orioles to get an offer that blows them away for a DH.

True. But he's real good.

Nunez leads the majors in "no-doubt" home runs this year with 5.   A no-doubt HR is one that would be out any of the major league ballparks based on where it was hit to.

    • Richard Bleier. Anyone else remember how sad he was to leave? BTW, He led the team in ERA.
    • Is this really a question? He was drafted SEVEN years ago and has 15 MLB innings, mostly due to injuries. If HH lasts to become a FA (2026), it will be a success story for all parties.
    • You are equating performance with actions until you can prove otherwise.
    • o   We all know Hunter Harvey's overall track record in regard to injuries ........ he's had his share, and them some.   That said, in 2019 Harvey went through the season without any major injuries, pitching in 34 games overall ........ 26 games in the Minors (11 of which were starts) and 8 games in the Majors. That was good for 82 Innings Pitched overall. Harvey felt some soreness in his right bicep in early September. He pitched in one more game on September 13th, and the Orioles then decided to shut him down to play it safe.      Hunter Harvey Shut Down, but Future Looks Bright (By Todd Karpovich) https://pressboxonline.com/2019/09/20/orioles-rhp-hunter-harvey-shut-down-but-future-looks-bright/     Just when Oriole fans thought that it was safe not to cover their eyes, it was reported that Harvey was going on the IL with elbow tightness just 2 days before the start of the 2020 season ......         Oriole fans from Brewster, NY to Baltimore and everywhere in between thought to themselves, "Oh no !!! Not again !!!" When the front-office stated that it was minor and that they were not at all concerned about any long-term effects, many Oriole fans thought to themselves, "Yeah, right" But lo and behold, Harvey gradually rested and rehabbed his right arm and began pitching for the Orioles on August 30th ...... and has pitched to the tune of a 2.35 ERA and a 1.043 WHIP over 7.67 Innings Pitched. He has already surpassed his 2019 Major League Innings Pitched total (Harvey pitched 6.33 Innings for the Orioles last year.)   So the question is ...... can the Orioles and their fans stop wincing every time they hear his name, and hope that it is not yet another injury ??? Or is Hunter Harvey destined to be a chronically-injured pitcher ??? o o
    • For the same reason, we are likely to get nothing back for Nunez. I am not suggesting we keep Nunez, but possibly trading Stewart for a B/C prospect of equivalent value. If we are actually trying to trade for something of value (like a 3B) we would get more for Stewart. We could still try to trade Nunez and have OF/1B/DH of Hays, Santander, Mullins, Mountcastle, Mancini plus Diaz. I really have a hard time seeing DJ fitting in with this team moving forward.
