Seems like we have to target Pie if we don't get Kemp or Jones.

When it's all said and done, we're going to have a lot of 25+ HR .300BA athletic type guys, but no leftimate HR/cleanup guys.

Lineup

Pie

Patterson ?

Markakis

Weiters

Votto

Rowell

Scott/Reimold

Snyder

SS ?

I'm not sure what "leftimate" is ( ;) ) but I'd take that line-up. With that kind of production, you can find a big, proven stick on the FA market.

Votto projects to be more like a .280/35 guy. I'd be pretty satisfied with him in the 4 hole. Rowell might get to that point too.

Personally not a big fan of this deal...I like the Seattle deal more because you have an MLB player that has the potential to be an elite player at a premium position. Unless the Mariners are offering very little after Jones, I would have to prefer the Mariners' offer to this one.

Agreed if it is Clement....Jones + Clement > Cueto + Votto IMO.

The "rest of the trade" from the Reds isn't much unless that minor leaguer not named is very good.

The question is, what is AM valuing? Quality or quantity? Iwould like to see a mixture of both but if the M's would put Tillman on the board as the third player, i would take him over one of the SS, Stubbs and the mystery MiLer.

Wouldn't Loo/Janish be at SS?

I'd take a lineup full of .300 25 HR guys any day. Well, provided they take a walk once in awhile.

Agreed, but AM wants pitching, and if they're unwilling to part with Morrow, I honestly don't see any great ones in their system. Cueto looks to be an elite pitching prospect, better than anyone we have in our system, and closer to being ML ready. I think he would easily step in and become a nice #4 next year, and possibly becoming number one or two down the road. I still would prefer the M's deal, but this seems to be AM's thinking, and with all the pitching depth, maybe we can spin two or three guys down the road for a guy like Jones in a year or two when we are ready to compete. (Probably not him specifically, but an elite CF prospect) Also, the feeling might be the Pie is coming back from the Cubs, and why create a logjam out in center? But the lack of a true SS prospect coming back in any deals is what frightens me...no LH, please.

Look at all the lefties...that can't work. We need a righty in the 2 slot and another power hitting righty (Tex is a switch hitter). FYI, Adam Jones is a righty and Clement is a lefty.

I think Drew Stubbs as a third prospect is interesting. High risk/reward type. We'll need to see what follows - but I'm not a big Janish fan.

I do think we're undervaluing this trade a bit - it's a good one. It's possible the Mariners can top it...but do we have evidence that Jones, Morrow, and Clement have all been offered?

Loo is not going to play a MLB game ever. Janish can't hit a lick. I don't want them in the deal.

Basically I don't like the deal. I'd rather go after Adam Jones and Clement. And then flip Clement for Brignac or another SS.

    • If he can't reach an accord with his brother and it's effecting the operation of the team how is that not his fault?  That's his job at this point, that's the part he's responsible for.
    • I’ve been trying to tell y’all we are going to be platoon heavy and playing the best match up against whomever we will be facing. We have depth across the board to make that happen. We are going back to Weaver ball baby! 
    • Huh.  I learned something. Someone actually paid to put their name on the Oakland Coliseum.
    • This seems a bit of a harsh take.  JA hired Elias and gave him the go ahead on all of this.  Louie starts fighting bout money and direction with JA.  Surely this started behind the scenes vs in the open.  At that point, JA has to do what he can to keep the franchise moving in the right direction with the knowledge that there could be funds issues due to litigation.  This is going to lead to prioritizing which could put some other things on hold.  I don’t see how that is JA’s fault.    If your theory is JA isn’t willing to spend versus not able to, why haven’t Elias or Sig even hinted at that?   Elias just built a great system.  He could gat another GM job pretty easily.  Sig also has plenty of places he could go.  If they thought they were being unfairly hamstrung there would be some sort of leak or comment from them indicating this was a issue.  Instead, there has been nothing which leads me to believe they know JA is doing what he can and are willing to wait for it to be sorted out. 
    • Apparently the whole point of moving back the leftfield wall was to put the Orioles in a position to justify acquiring / starting mediocre to below average pitchers (Gibson and Irvin). Based on how OPACY ballpark factor is trending I don't see any reason to believe Irvin's success at home won't continue, even if it's to a slightly lesser extent. So worst case scenario you're probably looking at a possible uptick in ERA to the low 4.00s, which certainly isn't going to be enough to get him bumped from the rotation.  #23 - Oriole Park at Camden Yards (Orioles) - 95.3 Overall Park Factor, 86.0 Fly Ball (24th), 83 Home Run (27th) Well, the Orioles moved the left field fence way in before the 2022 season, and it clearly had the desired impact. Both its fly ball and home run park factors reached their lowest points over the past decade, and that 83 home run mark marked its first foray below 100 over that span. Even before the fences came in, this park was one of those that yielded homers, but not all that many runs. It hasn’t posted a higher than average doubles or triples park factor over the last decade. #27 - RingCentral Coliseum (Athletics) - 93.5 Overall Park Factor, 85.9 Fly Ball (25th), 92 Home Run (22nd) First and foremost, this place is a dump. That said, this marks 10 straight years as a pitchers’ park for RingCentral. When you suppress both homers (8 straight years below 100 HR park factor) and singles (10 straight years), there simply aren’t many avenues to behaving as a hitters’ park.
    • The LHH 1B thing makes me wonder how often we’ll be playing the splits…  Not just @ 1B but elsewhere too. Irvin has already earned over the last few years being an ML starter.
