Cobb to Angels

Recommended Posts

Curious to see what AAAA type we get back.  You know the trade returns are underwhelming when they're not immediately reported.

Probably a cost cutting move and even then I am betting we're paying a decent chunk of Cobb's 2021 salary.

Anyway, best of luck to him.

Even if its just a salary dump, this seems like good news. Wonder how much the Angels will be paying?

Cobb finishes his dissapointing Oriole tenure with the following stats:

3 Seasons, 41 GS, 5.10 ERA, 1 CG, 217.0 IP, 86 ERA+, 1.419 WHIP, 1.8 bWAR

Guessing the return is along the lines of a partially chewed cheeseburger from McDonalds.

It’s definitely a cost cutting move. That said I am fine with it. I don’t think this is a done deal yet which is why we don’t know more 

I also think we sign someone else now for sure to take his spot. I can’t see them running 4 kids out there coming off a 60 game season rebuild or not.

Does Chris Davis make more than the rest of the roster combined yet?

I think if all of Cobb’s money is taken on by Angels which would be a shock then yes it would be. 
 

This also would include the $6M deferred to Davis this year meaning he makes $23M this year and not $17M. 
 

Edit. I think Davis would still be a couple million behind.

My guess is the O's send 10m with Cobb and they get back a minor leaguer that fits 20--30 on the O's list and an international teenager.

That’s a ton of money to eat to save $5M.  Will be interesting. 
 

Your deal sounds about right.

The O's pay the 10m that is  deferred in Cobb's contract.  The Angels pay the 5m that is due this season. JMG.

$12 million dollars.  Thats the Orioles salary without factoring in CD.

As long as they didn't throw in prospects to get this done I am fine with it, but this team has some financial issues.

Where are you getting that number? I believe the minimum salary 570k. Even if they fielded an entire team sans Davis of minimum players, the salary would be north of 14m. And we know that’s not true because we have arbitration players.

Who knows. Very curious to see how this plays out.

What is the team record for $$$ sent out with a traded player?   It is perhaps being re-written this morning.

The $50 million Colorado is sending St Louis for Arenado has to be the highest, or damn near close to it

I won the exact same number of games as Cobb did at home as an Oriole. 0
