Just talked to my guy via text and here is what he had to say. Take it for what its worth.

He is hearing that there is an offer on the table from the M's that includes Adam Jones and Clement. Says he thinks Bedard will be dealt. Just a matter of time and the right deal.

Roberts will be dealt as well. No timetable, but says he would be suprised if he is here on OD.

Also feels Roberts got the shaft in Mitchell report and that Hendry could careless if he is in Report. Still thinks Pie could be involved in deal. Gallagher definately in deal.

I hope your source is wrong about Brian!:002_scry:

Which part is possible? Clement being flipped in general or the move I suggested?

BTW, if MelMo wants out so bad, will he allow us to trade him to more places than just around this area?

Clement being flipped IF we get this deal. Mora is not going anywhere except close to B'more. Phillies are still my bet.

Although the Nationals have Ryan Zimmerman at 3b, would they be a potential candidate, maybe moving Melvin to a corner outfield position. If not the Phillies or the Nationals, I dont see him drawing much interest along the east coast.

If we get Clement I doubt they will try to spin him. I'm guessing they'd see if he could play first base or let him catch, and move Ramon to first.

Or deal Hernandez for a temporary answer at SS or CF, whichever position doesn't come back in other trades.

Mora isnt going to the Nationals. They have an OF of Pena/Kearns/Millegdge for the upcoming season with Dukes as the 4th OF or in the minors.

He will probably get sent to the Phillies. Rumblings out of here is that the Phillies are trying to move Helms.

the Nats have more outfielders than they know what to do with.

    • Rojas is a similar player but how is a the "perfect comp" when he's a FA in 2024 and Mateo isn't a FA until 2026?    Also, Mateo had a 3.4 RWAR compared to 2.5 for Rojas.    Is the player the Marlins got from the Dodgers in his FA year, a decent prospect? Ranked Los Angeles Dodgers #10 prospect in-season in 2022 BA Grade: 50/High Track Record: Amaya grew up in suburban Los Angeles and is the grandson of former Brooklyn Dodgers prospect Frank Amaya. The Dodgers kept the connection going when they drafted the younger Amaya in the 11th round in 2017 and signed him for an above-slot $247,500. Amaya quickly established himself as the best defensive shortstop in the Dodgers system, but longstanding questions about his bat only increased after he hit .216/.303/.343 at Double-A Tulsa in 2021. Scouting Report: Amaya is a gifted defensive shortstop with elite instincts for the position. He is always in the right place, secures every ball with his soft, reliable hands and makes every throw with his plus, accurate arm. He's not the rangiest or flashiest defender, but he makes every play and is elite at nuances such as tags and relays. Amaya's bat is further behind. He previously demonstrated elite-strike zone discipline but tried to hit for power in 2021 and started chasing and overswinging. He's an undersized hitter who is best when he drives singles the other way with a short, direct stroke. The Future: Amaya's defense gives him a chance to stick as a utilityman. He'll try to make the necessary offensive adjustments in 2022. Scouting Grades: Hitting: 50. Power: 40. Speed: 50. Fielding: 60. Arm: 60.   So the Marlins got the #10 prospect in a very good system for one year of Miguel Rojas but Jorge Mateo who is younger with 3 years of service time and just had a better overall season than Rojas has every had, can't get back a significant prospect?    Really?
    • I like this. Better than signing Wacha or Greinke because you have him for four years if he pitches well. Giving up Hernaiz doesn't impact the system much.  We can complain that the upper tier FAs would have been better (they would have and we should have gotten one) but in isolation this is a strong move.
    • At some point we really have to wonder about a 6-man rotation.  Or if they'll piggyback some guys.  Crowded isn't the right word.  Maybe congested?  Phlegmy?   Not sure who said it on the thread, but it could end up in the A's favor years from now.  But I like it in the moment for what it is.  It does add ML level depth.  It deals from MI depth.  It reallocated profits toward an org weakness getting Virbitsky.   If things break right with Grayson/Kremer/Bradish, then Irvin's 4 years of team control "should" mean no Lyles/Gibson-types next year.  
    • I don't mind this trade, but Eovaldi at 2 years $34M was not an overpay.  I am still annoyed that the Orioles did not sign him for that or a similar amount).
    • I dunno... I kind of like it.  He would have had the second lowest WHIP among our starters last year by .03 points.  He would have led the team in innings pitched and he has a career WHIP of 1.2 over 400 innings.  And, he averaged 6 innings per start last year.  I like the idea of a guy who can eat innings, keep the game close, and doesn't cost a lot.  You can never have too much pitching.  We can always trade him if the youngsters come through.  
    • His career minor league ERA was 3.05.  Never doubt Roll Tide’s ability to just make stuff up. 
    • I have a question for you. More value… Hernaiz or a the draft picks we would’ve lost to sign a QO SP?
