Heyman: Braves kicking tires on Mancini

Recommended Posts

I’d be asking for 1 of their top 6, 1 in the top 15, and 2 others. 
 

But, you have to wonder what the money issues and missed season have hurt his value. I’d imagine they’d probably want to examine him beyond having their people look at his medical records concerning his strength and conditioning.

I don’t think this a guy the Orioles should just give away.

Id ask for Drew Waters, Tucker Davidson , maybe Spencer Strider , and a DSLkid.

Top four prospects are probably off limits.  But something with Shewmake and one of their top 10 pitching prospects as the centerpieces?

I don’t think it happens.  And I love Trey Mancini.  But, a 28 year old right handed first baseman can’t be a total no trade guy.

He not playing 1B for the Braves...Freddie Freeman.   There is no DH in the NL.   That puts him in the OF.

I don't see the logic of the quantity over quality approach or why folks seem to need to have a DSL kid thrown into every trade.  Collecting non prospects isn't going to do much.  At some point they need a place to play.  I'd rather have one of two more highly regarded guys.

I personally believe they would laugh at us if we're asking for a top 10 guy.  That said, I agree and if they would part with a guy like Waters who is due to arrive this year sometime and a 20-30 range arm, I'd do it.

Sure I was just talking in general.  Folks are acting like dsl kids are an order of small fries they tack on to their drive through order.

Probably Atlanta thinking they can get him cheaply.  It’s worth the call.

Nothing likely to come of it.

But if they offer enough, of course you trade him.  Just because he had cancer, doesn’t mean you can’t trade him.  It’s not like you are ending his baseball career.  If anything, you are helping him.

Big-time negative PR hit if it were to happen.

Yes... but you can't run a team based on PR. If the deal is right you have to do it. :noidea:

Who was it? Manager or GM who said (paraphrasing) "If you run the team based on fans preferences you'll soon be among them."

There might be. Is that decided yet?

Without doing something truly disturbing can fan opinion of the franchise get lower?

    • By the way, I agree that Davis’ contract was insanely stupid long before he showed us how stupid it was by his performance. Angeles victimized himself. But I’m talking more generally about non-performance of contracts. I think the top earners would fare even better if not for the associated risks by ownership. They aren’t playing with Monopoly money. The risk builds a discounting into what owners will spend. And smaller market teams are less able to take risks because the affect of one Davis-like contract on their smaller payroll is huge. On what principle should players receive the full value of a contract they unable to satisfy competently? We’re rained out tonight....I wouldn’t be asking otherwise. Wait, did you call me noob?  
    • How about a 10 minute deep cleaning between each use of a bathroom stall.  That would be a smarter measure to stop the spread of Covid.  (Or even hourly cleaning of bathroom stalls).  How many Covid infections have really been spread by "outside food"?
    • “Congratulations Mr. O’Corn, I’m thrilled to hire you as my new GM. I’ve always had a real respect, I mean that most sincerely. Obviously we all want to win, I want to win a championship. And I know you want a long career in baseball. and you’d like to keep your kids in school here in Baltimore. Now tell me, should I give you $123 million to work with or $100 million? Which is going to give you a better shot at delivering me a World Series champion?”
    • A catcher can block the plate once he has possession of the ball. Just not before.  Here is the full text of Rule 7.13(2): Unless the catcher is in possession of the ball, the catcher cannot block the pathway of the runner as he is attempting to score.  If, in the judgment of the Umpire, the catcher without possession of the ball blocks the pathway of the runner, the Umpire shall call or signal the runner safe. Notwithstanding the above, it shall not be considered a violation of this Rule 7.13 if the catcher blocks the pathway of the runner in order to field a throw, and the Umpire determines that the catcher could not have fielded the ball without blocking the pathway of the runner and that contact with the runner was unavoidable.
    • Tony - I’m not a HIPAA lawyer, but you shouldn’t assume that because the O’s were authorized to disclose he had myocarditis that they are authorized to provide further details or updates.   Even within the organization, except on a need to know basis.    Still, I do find the situation weird and mysterious.  If I were Kjerstad, I’d want Oriole fans to know that I had a good reason for being out.    I hope he will be OK and gets on the field as soon as he can.    
    • MFYs have had numerous examples of big contracts gone bust (the "Fat Toad" comes to mind, LOL). No sweat; just move on to the next.
    • Word is that Boras was trying to talk Ilitch into Davis as an outfielder but his GM convinced him not to make an offer. Other than that I never heard a word about any team having interest at the number he was asking for. I'm sure if his number dropped low enough some team other than the Orioles would have been interested, but he would have cost a first round pick.
