Outfield Trade Market Heating Up?

We need NL teams to view Mancini as an OF. That’s how we get a good return. 

I don't want to see Mancini go, but you're right if he's perceived as an outfielder Elias could start a bidding war among interested teams. I don't think that's likely and Mancini if traded it will be to a team that needs a 1B/DH.

Yeah that does work.   Chris Davis' agent talked up the possibility of him playing some RF and some idiot team gave him $160mm.

So....the Mets - those are forthright GM quotes for before Memorial Day.   Ronny Mauricio feels like a good fit for the Adley Orioles, but he is a high value player.

The Mets have been faking CF for years and years....this is the Mullins spot.   I don't think you can Hays your way to Mauricio.     Mauricio could always 2B, but Baty/McNeil decent Lindor flankers medium term.   At least for Orioles asks of Mets, would think Mauricio good edge on Baty.

If Elias feels one of our infielders can actually handle SS, then Baty and Vientos are two 3B in their Top 10

CF Pete Crow-Armstrong should be our target. Give them Mancini, Galvis and Fry.

I can't tell if you're serious. Why would any team trade its 19 year old 1st round pick, especially for the three players named?

 Will they actually spend money when the team is clearly being prepped for sale? No way. The bigger question to me is when is Angelos selling? Likely after a potential work stoppage/life event clearly. That’s all the matters IMHO. This team will be crap until.

They gave up a left handed minor leaguer for him.  McKinney is probably equivalent to Stewart.

Its funny you say that given this a thread about the Mets (see Jared Kelenic).

That said, different GM, different circumstances.  It won't happen but...it has.

I just cant get excited anymore with us trading away good ballplayers for AAA guys. We already have a team full of AAA guys.

We could actually use more of the AAA prospect types.  We are jacked with A/AA prospects.  The lack of big league ready prospects is what is our system lacks at the moment, but it won't be a problem forever.

You can see the successes of the rebuild have started to flourish in Delmarva, Aberdeen, and Bowie as all 3 are competitive and showcase a lot of exciting names.  Norfolk and the O's have nuggets, but overall, are thin on high end talent, have been terrible in the standings,  and show we are still about 2 seasons away from competing.  Santander, Mancini, and Means are the nuggets on the parent club, but we need to trade high and add to the AA/AAA crop.  We have a few interesting, controllable pieces beyond that on our AAA and big league club, but not enough to think we can contend in the next couple seasons.  The next two seasons belong to Hays, Mullins, Stewart, Mountcastle and some of the young pitchers.  There will probably be more Gavis/Iglesias/Franco deals too.  In about 2023 the talent in the system will start to click and arrive at the same time, Elias can supplement it with a couple big FA deals, and we are rolling. 

Sell high!

    • Now is a good time to start this discussion. Heading into this season, what players have value or the potential to create trade value? It's obvious we probably have another year or two of selling a couple pieces. Below is my best guess as to who Elias would be willing to move for the right price. Cedric Mullins - Has a high price tag obviously. However, we know this year is a wash competitively, could be better next year, but most likely not play off bound. That would leave Mullins here for 24 and 25 to realistically compete for the playoffs. If we can get back multiple pieces in a trade now that could help us compete by that time AND can be controlled several years beyond, it's worth listening. Will he cheaper in the meantime as you avoid Mullins arbitration years. Good sell high candidate too John Means - Same as above. Plus Means is a bit older, probably at peak value especially if he had a good start to 2022. If you had a solid return on both Means and Mullins, it could infuse the upcoming wave of talent that could make us competitive for years Trey Mancini - Best case scenario, he looks like 2019 Trey and we swing him at the deadline for a solid prospect or 2.  If he plays like he did last year, you might get a Andrew Cashner type return Austin Hays - He's currently not on the block, nor should he be, but by chance he has a blow up season like Mullins did last year, then he would share the same circumstances in regards to service time as Mullins. We'll see if we cross that bridge Cole Sulser - He was good last year. He's controllable but a tad older than the Youth movement coming, so probably reaching peak value this year Anthony Santander- Already on 4th service year. Has shown flashes of what he could be. If he stays healthy and breaks out, he could fetch a really good return. This would be the year of peak value IF he performs. Tanner Scott - Seems to always be on the cusp of a break out. If he can harness the fb and slider a little more, some will want the LHP at the deadline Paul Fry- Depends on which Paul Fry shows up to camp. He could have been traded last year but Elias didn't like the return. He'll probably take it this year Dillon Tate - No rush to trade, but saw his name come up last year. Needs to get better, and if he does, he might be worth trading as he has similar arbitration status as Mullins and Hays Roughned Odor - If by chance he figures it out and hits a bunch of fingers, he'd be a trade deadline guy, but that was our hope for Maikel Franco Jordan Lyles- Apparently there's a pretty strong market for 5.00 era innings eaters. Another potential trade deadline guy, ala Cashner  Jorge Lopez - They paid a decent penny to bring back the inconsistent starter. If he thrives in a relief role, now would be a good time to trade the soon to be 29 year old in his fourth year of service  DJ Stewart - It's a now or never year for Stewart. He probably has a better chance of getting cut than traded as it stands.  Seems to have the OBP tool, has to hit now. If he can be an .800 OPS OF/DH, he essentially becomes a poor man's Kyle Schwarber. At 28, he'd be a peak value should he perform.          
    • Well, agree to disagree.  
    • The ACC that everyone loved is dead.  The old 9 team conference with true round-robin died long before Maryland left.  The ACC thought so much of Maryland that they decided Pitt was going to be its natural rival and wasn't going to ensure any annual home and homes with UNC, Duke, State, UVA, etc..  It was the last straw from a conference that never cared about Maryland. The move to the Big Ten has been great from an academic sense (look at the expansion of the engineering program), and the basketball has been fine (I'd argue that the BIG 10 has been deeper consistently than the ACC since Maryland left).    
    • I can't be the only one that thinks 6-9 is a black hole
    • Those 3 things do matter…but MD is the destination of those local kids.  Recruiting is so different now, especially with the power of social media.     There are tons of attractive urban areas, so that really isn’t much of a factor overall.  It may help vs some Midwest school in podunk but up against a lot of the power 5 teams, not as much. Lots of schools have top notch facilities.   I mean, look at their recruiting rankings. They have had 1 top 10 Class in the last decade.  They had more classes ranked outside the top 35 than inside the top 20.     Had you asked me 5+ years ago, I would have agreed it was a top 25 job.  It’s just not the case anymore.  
    • First of all, the current state of the program absolutely matters and it matters a hell of a lot more than MDs title in 2002. Would those schools out hire?  Maybe..money is important and the Terps haven’t had any. BTw, I meant Texas Tech, not Texas A&M.  Now, we will see what TT does after losing Beard but that’s been a really good program recently. FSU has been a far better program than MD for a solid 5-10 years.  It’s not close.  They have had several first round picks, highly ranked recruiting classes and lots of tourney success, not to mention being one of the winningest programs in the ACC. Your last sentence is just wrong.  The idea that you think it’s clear is absurd. They have limited recent success(especially in March), not much national appeal, no money and no real high end picks to point to in the league recently.     Like I said, the right coach can elevate the program back to what you are saying…but as we talk now, as the job is looked at by recruits, etc…it’s not there anymore.  Things can change.
