Philly still interested in getting Mora...


Black & Orange

Recommended Posts

Seems like Philly is focused on adding pitching this offseason, but maybe they'd be interested in swapping Adam Eaton for Mora. Eaton and Mora have pretty similar contracts.

Curious if folks would rather...

a) swap Mora for Eaton (or someone like Eaton),

b) swap Mora + $10M for a low-level prospect,

c) just keep Mora.

I'm guessing we would want a mid-level prospect, not Adam Eaton.

Even if it means eating a bunch of dough?

In this pitching market, Eaton probably has some value to the teams considering 4 or 5 year, $40M commitments to the likes of Kyle Lohse and Carlos Silva.

Thats my thought, but obviously I have no idea. The payroll will be lower this year, assuming they rebuild, so I don't see why they wouldn't eat some money to do a better job of rebuilding.

Eaton is a bad idea...If he was a FA this year, I wouldn't mind it but the idea is to get rid of Mora's contract.

I would rather eat half the money and get one or 2 mid level guys than take on Eaton.

I have no problem taking a guy like Loaiza for this year in hopes he can do something but I don't want some overpaid Marquis or Eaton or someone like that for the next 2 years.

They need to pull the trigger on this as soon as an offers made. Normally I'm ok with MacPhail being patient and getting the most from clubs but with Mora's demand to be on the East Coast the market for him is very small. Get what you can and run. This will definitely be addition by subtraction.

    • Do you really think the O's will go to a 6 man rotation and limit the pen to 7 relievers. Bautista, Akin, Tate and Krehbiel all showed signs of overuse in September after Lopez was traded.
    • As for people who think John will sell,don't think it will happen.What else gives him this power. The suits raised concerns among fans that a sale of the team could mean it would move. Louis Angelos suggested in one filing that John Angelos, who has a home in Nashville, could relocate the team to Tennessee. John Angelos has said repeatedly the team will not leave Baltimore, and sources told The Sun he wants to maintain his family’s majority ownership, even if a portion of its shares are sold.
    • On Jan. 26, Judge Keith Truffer ordered a range of documents to be turned over to Louis Angelos and his lawyers, including from Wells Fargo and Goldman Sachs, an investment firm Georgia Angelos worked with on a possible sale of the Orioles. The judge also wanted Louis Angelos’ team to receive any documents and communications regarding a possible sale of the family’s interest in the Orioles or MASN. Truffer had set a deadline of 14 days, instructing Georgia and John Angelos to “produce financial statements reflecting the financial condition of the Baltimore Orioles Limited Partnership (”BOLP”), which includes the Orioles and the Mid-Atlantic Sports Network, from January 1, 2017, to the present.” Further, he wrote, they also would provide documents to show “compensation or other benefits paid to John Angelos from January 1, 2017 to present in connection with his duties for BOLP, including his work for the Baltimore Orioles and the Mid-Atlantic Sports Network.”
    • Sun says one of ththe reasons they settled was because of were getting closer to financial records being released. As legal battle delved further into Angelos family’s personal, financial dealings, they agree to drop lawsuits – Baltimore Sun httpsFCC://www.baltimoresun.com/maryland/bs-md-angelos-suit-settled-20230206-pqx4qtlw65dljjyihnmwywyv5i-story.html
    • It's certainly a start for sure. I really want it lower in the minors where it's tougher to get good video, but I take what I can get!
    • Probably the college world series.  The O's are paying for his decline phase!
    • oWAR + dWAR does not = WAR.  There is a positional adjustment to oWAR and dWAR that is double-counted if you simply add the two numbers.    That said, you are correct that Manny’s best rWAR year was his age 22 season.  His rWAR total that year was 7.5, not 8.0.  By fWAR, 2022 was Manny’s best year.  In any event, I think it’s fair to say Manny’s still in his prime, based on his excellent 2022 campaign.
