Per Sun: O's in lead to land Hill in deal...

Recommended Posts

My thought exactly! :D

Hill's worth a risk. I guess we'd need to clear another player off the 40-man. Burres this time, I hope.

Someone to definitely take a chance on, especially for a PTBNL.

Don't get too excited guys...Hill still has a lot work to do to get back to his 2006-2007 form. And he's not a sure thing to make the rotation.

I think we all know that.

But as SG has said, an organization in this position needs to take risks and trade for Low Risk High Reward players. Hill is exactly the player that AM should be targeting, and its good to know he is.

This would be awesome. Hill, hopefully, just had an off year. I had him on my fantasy team in 2007. He performed well enough (I think 3rd in NL in K's) that I saved him for 2008. That didn't go so well, but I love Rich Hill. He has a chance to be better than Guthrie if he returns to form. I may be getting too giddy, but if we add Looper, too, we actually have a chance of 4 starters that could combine for 750 innings with an ERA under 4.00.

I would have Penn, Pauley and Hendrickson all make the team as 5th starter and long relief and the other 5 guys in the bullpen could be Ray, Sherrill, Johnson, Sarfate and Walker/Baez (one or the other).

I'll take it!!!

Very nice...Hope this gets done.

As I said last night, it won't take much to get him.

They need the 40 man space and can't afford to have a project on their team..The Orioles obviously can afford it.

This is amazing. If MacPhail can pull this off we are in for a very excitng year.

Hill has too much upside to pass up. MacPhail is pulling all of the right strings.

Last year we were praying to get Pie and Hill for Roberts. This year we get them for Olson and a PTBNL. :eek::eektf::clap3: AM is a genius for waiting.:2yay-thumb:

Depending on who we trade, whatever.

I'm pretty bearish on Hill and his fragile psyche, but he's another arm. Not young anymore, but at least he's lefthanded.

Maybe Kranitz can pull off a transformation. Hill is basically the Cubs version of Cabrera.

Come on, Hill's best year was so much better than anything Cabrera threw for us.

    • No, but the salary cap makes things very wonky in the NBA and NHL. While the NFLs system really screws over the players. The only way I see the MLBPA giving into a salary cap is if they cut the years of control right in half.  Which would basically change strategy away from developing home grown talent. 
    • I'm over the moon if Tork is available at 2. I get the defensive and athletic upside is limited, but that is such a special bat. .285 and 30 HR annually? Absolutely. Realistically, I wouldn't be upset with either Martin or Lacy at 2. Martin might not project the upside as a traditional 1-2, but there is something to be said for his tools across the board. Pitchers this high make me nervous as well, but a Rodriguez-Lacy-Hall top of the rotation sounds formidable, health permitting. 
    • So, former GM Jim Bowden is now writing for the Atlantic.  According to his research, there were 42 players taken among the 80 players selected in the first five picks of the 16 MLB drafts between 2000 and 2015 and only five of the 42 have justified the selection - Verlander, Price, Strausburg, Cole and Bauer.  Two of those pitchers, Verlander and Strausburg, were "no-brainer" decisions.  It is a hit rate far below WC's opening post.
    • Just keep chucking talent into the firebox and hope that coaching, video, personality tests, wearable tech, organizational philosophy, and the mysteries of the universe  squirt out some rare nuggets at a reasonable pace.
    • Thanks for posting this. I read this Monday and meant to comment to you. Drastically different from BA’s write up that I referenced. Not my critique, theirs. I’ve never seen the kid. I am two years removed from most of the HS kids. I know many of the college Sophomores and Juniors fairly well. I have some info on the Central Florida kids, but that’s about all I got as a personal knowledge base.    I like what MLB wrote about Halpin. If that is what Elias sees, then perhaps he’s higher on the board. I believe Elias May take 1-2 HS kids, at most. Just based on limited data and all. Quite polar reports, but that’s how it goes. One scout sees him on a bad few days. Another sees him on a good few games. What I take from that is inconsistency would make it tougher to draft him unless you are all in on him as an area scout and cross checker.
    • I wish my adhd 9 year old daughter would stop talking jumping and singing Taylor swift and go the ?!?!!??? To sleep or at least go to her room. I might ready the Samuel l Jackson book go the f to sleep! 
    • Well when people say his comp is Mookie freaking Betts, I think people are getting carried away with upside projections. I hope I look back at this post in 6 years and Martin has an MVP and multiple top 5 finishes.
