I think that if we get Clement we put him on first and make that his permanant position. How many home runs would you think would be a good projection for Clement to hit per season? Is he a 25-30 per year guy?

Never going to happen. Clement's value is as a catcher. Put him at first, and he's below average.

I'd love to do that, and then you wouldn't need to carry an extra back-up catcher. But the Orioles do love their backup catchers.

That is really no difference in rankings...Plus, Clement had a much better year than Brignac did in 2007.

Also, it is a need for the DRays...They have Bartlett at SS right now and Longoria at third(in case they decided to move Brignac to third).

Bartlett isn't going to block Brignac when they think he's ready. They just acquired him for the sake of having a legit SS playing the position now rather than Brendan Harris. They don't think much of him though (and rightly so).

It would be huge if we could come out of this with Pie and Jones for an OF of Pie, Jones, and Markakis...Best young OF in baseball.

We could also explore putting Jones back at SS and leaving Scott in LF, and use Clement to get a 3B instead of a SS.

Also, I'd look into possibly adding something on our end to the Cubs to get Epat back as well and stick him at 2B....

Something like Bedard for Clement, Jones, and Morrow

Roberts, Bradford, and Olson/Albers for Pie, Epat, and Gallager

Can Jones realistically play SS for us?

One way to find out...

If Brignac is still in the organization, I am sure this is true.

The Cubs don't have any real need for a reliever like Bradford. On the right side of the pen, they already have Wood, Howry, Marmol, Wuertz, and Lahey... and probably Dempster after his newest experiment moving to the rotation fails. While we don't know how Lahey will do, five very good right handed relievers doesn't give much trade value for bradford.

Sounds like they need a lefty :002_ssuprised: We've got one of those too.

I don't think I've ever read anything positive about putting Jones back at short.

Jones and Pie would make Scott available and I'm sure a left handed bat would work for many teams.

Clement would probably have a lot of value and suitors, especially if packaged.

I wish we could get both Balentien and Jones in the M's deal, but it probably makes little sense to the M's. Also would change the dynamics of any deal involving BRob.

How about BRob and Clement for Pie, Gallagher, Cedeno, and EPat

That assuming we get Clement in a Bedard deal.

    • Agreed.  As it stands now, we've heard that they want Gunnar to get some starts at SS.  So, I think Mateo'll start the season as the SS starter for most games.  It won't be 100% as Hyder plays the numbers between Mateo/Urias/Frazier.  And Westburg if he's on the team.   Only Mateo's bat can change that narrative. He definitely has value at the MLB level for teams that are thin up the middle and have hitters elsewhere.  But for the O's, I think the team is best served with him as a pinch runner/defensive replacement.  
    • For a second I thought I had to defend Roll Tide. Kyle Virbitsky has a 4.49 ERA in the minors.  I think Tide saw his 5.06 RA9.
    • I don't think picking up a below average pitcher is something that can be called a strong move. It's a move. 
    • Off the top of my head I'd say Hernaiz is roughly equivalent in value to a late second round pick at this point.  I certainly wouldn't expect a late second round pick to end up being more than Hernaiz is. I have a question for you.  More value....Irvin or a free agent pitcher that received a Qualifying Offer?
    • 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?
