Lets get back to talking trade talks. Alot of things will start to pick up. Bedard and Roberts should be dealt before Christmas. And for certain, Roberts wont be affected by the report..per Cubs.

Good stuff, Peace. Are there still talks of the 4-for-1 for BRob with Chicago?

Hendry really wants Roberts. And Pie is expected to be in the deal. Gallagher will definately be in any deal.
Even if Pie is in the Roberts deal I'd try to swing both Bedard and Scott to the Reds and get 4 players back. Hamilton either goes to LF or CF depending on if we get Pie or Murton back from the Cubs.

Peace,

Is Adam Jones def on the table? Are Bruce, Kemp, and Kershaw def off?

Caus it sounds to me like the M's are the team to trade with...but everyone on here has done a lot more research then myself.

Jones is definitely the best player availabel assuming Kemp, Kershaw, and Bruce are off limits. However, I think a Reds package can trump anything the Mariners would put together or that the Dodgers would put together assuming both Kershaw and Kemp aren't involved (and maybe even if one of them is).

If Pie is really off limits, then I go after Murton, Gallagher, Veal, and Patterson for Roberts. Then I try to get Cueto, Votto, Hamilton and Encarnacion from the Reds for Bedard and Scott.

You raise a good point Mackus.....

who do we trade next: BRob or Bedard?

For certain. Why would it? It may or may not have happened, and even if it did it was 5 years ago.

I am not surprised by that in the least, but I'm still not 100% sure that trading Roberts to the Cubs is a stellar idea, especially if Bailey or Cueto will be coming back in the Bedard deal.

Based on what BB said last night, I'm not crazy about dealing with Seattle. I like Jones, but he's not paired with Balentien or Clement... keep huntin'.

Would love for something to happen in the next 3 days....Any chance of that?

Seems like a lot of stuff (ie. Bedard and Roberts trades) was imminent until the Tejada trade, and now seems like it has slowed down. That could obviously all just be perception though.

I would hope that each might be dealt over the weekend. The Kuroda situation could be resolved today so that would leave only two teams in the Bedard chase, likely the Reds and Mariners. The Roberts trade should go down pretty soon as well. There were reports that he would be traded before Bedard. Is this still what people are hearing?

    • BBREF.com is usually in the ballpark (no pun intended) when it comes to projecting arbitration cases.  For 2023, they expect $17.97M in 2023, and that number balloons to $58.5M and $86M in 2024 and 2025, respectively.   https://www.baseball-reference.com/teams/BAL/baltimore-orioles-salaries-and-contracts.shtml  There's your significant increase. It's not going out on a limb to expect no big presents under the Orioles Christmas tree this year.   
    • It comes from a throwaway line in a Jon Heyman article:  “The Orioles are checking on top shortstops, but with the need less than overwhelming, and bigger market teams involved, it’s more likely they sign starting pitchers.” https://nypost.com/2022/12/01/astros-has-some-justin-verlander-hesitation-in-mlb-free-agency/ Hardly worth getting excited about.  
    • And before it was announced that they were getting a $30 million payout from the Disney deal. And before the new TV deal started. 
    • Director of pro scouting Mike Snyder will be a guest tonight.   Looks like he’s mostly talking about the O’s approach to the Rule 5 draft, per Roch: “It’s kind of a tradition in Baltimore of taking, if not one, sometimes more than one player in the Rule 5,” Mike Snyder, the director of pro scouting, said this week during an interview that airs tonight on the debut episode of the “Hot Stove Show” on MASN. Snyder said the Orioles take the list of eligible players and whittle it to maybe “a couple hundred that we would say merit serious consideration,” but wind up with a couple dozen who are viewed as possible selections. From there, the final draft might contain three-to-seven players, and the Orioles wait to see how teams react ahead of them. A player is chosen “only if we think that person has a significant, real chance of helping the team that year,” Snyder said. “It’s very easy to fall in a trap of saying, ‘Oh, we can hide this player and they’ll be on the roster for the year,’ and then you can maintain that control over the player for several years, and we haven’t felt like that is all that fruitful. So in the past, the players that we’ve selected we felt had a chance to impact the team that following year and in the future. “This year, that hasn’t changed. What might have changed a little bit is that we feel good about where our roster stands now, and the bar might be a little higher to clear for what does help your big league team looking forward into 2023.” https://www.masnsports.com/blog/will-the-orioles-be-left-with-only-right-handers-in-their-rotation
    • Santander is likely traded, if you sign a SS Mateo gets traded, Hays isn’t worth the raise, and Mullins is still a bargain at 4 million. And even if they keep all it’s not a “significant increase”. He would’ve just said we will increase our guys. He said 2 hitters with a MOO bat. Anything of value is going to push up the payroll. A starting pitcher better than Lyles at 11 million will cost you $20 per.  
    • Dumb wording ….Elias knows the cost. I’m sure he’s not dumb enough to think he’s going to get a bargain. Just a BS rumor more than likely.
