Orioles have inquired about Stanton


Roll Tide

Well for all of those that said they'd considering trading Bundy for Stanton ...Here you go

Bundy isn't going for Stanton. I've already tried to explain this to everyone. DD has made clear that Bundy, Gausman and Machado are untouchable in Nashville. Everyone else is on the table take that FWIW.

Then Stanton's not coming, you can't be that picky choosey and get the top of the barrell.

Stanton only played 150 games once. Isn't he a bit injury prone, or is that not accurate? 123 games last season, 150 the year before, 100 the year before that.

He's been injury prone to some degree, yes. But the guy's talent is unquestionable. And I believe the 100 games played season was the season he was called up. He didn't break camp with the team in the spring.

I'd say it doesn't really matter much. If he can play 123 games and still post 37 HRs, I'd still want him.

Wouldn't read much into that.

He had some issues his first year, and last year had a minor scope to his knee that kept him out for a month.

He's only a year (and 2 months) older than Kevin Gausman, and has been healthy enough to already hit 93 HR in the majors. The 100 game year was when he was 20 years old and spent a couple months in the minors. Isn't it a bit early to tag him with the injury prone label?

There's only three players in baseball I'd deal Bundy for; Stanton is one of them, and Trout and Kershaw are the other two.

He did not have issues his first year, he was a 20-year old rookie who did not get called up until June. He played 53 games in the minors and 100 games in the majors, that's a full season. Is Manny Machado injury prone because he only had 51 major league games this year?

You are right, I read something wrong.

I got 2011 mixed up with 2010. He did battle some injuries in 2011 bu missed minimal time.

Whats so great about Kershaw? Not even the best pitcher in the NL.

    • It's obviously a good problem to have if Holliday can improve to serviceable at SS but I just don't see it. The arm strength isn't the only thing that sticks out to me. I don't like his hips as a SS, I don't like how he bends at the waist to field groundballs.. I could keep going but we've beaten up this topic enough. I think we're having a different conversation about this altogether if Gunnar hadn't improved his consistency sooo much last year but he did. JH will get better, no doubt. The sky is the limit for him but it'll be as a 2B or an eventual move to the OF. 
    • I did get the email. I'm just waiting for my current MLB-TV subscription to expire on March 1. Thanks for the update. 
    • Waiver wire moves aren’t the sexiest transactions but 5-6 teams tried to DFA Castillo to get him to AAA and off their 40 man rosters. Well Elias was able to accomplish that, and in doing so picked up a player that if eligible would rank somewhere in between #20-#30 in our top prospects. He’s probably the equivalent to Cesar Prieto, who was one of the pieces we dealt at least year’s trade deadline. 
    • If you signed up, I'd check your inbox for an email giving you a code to get the discount. When I renewed, I think the discount applied to renewing or new members at that time. I doubt they have changed it. For clarity, the website says "50 percent discount (applies to 2024 season for renewing members)." That is worded poorly and I understand why @RarityFlaherty read it the way he did. But I think the issue is that they want members to only receive one annual discount on mlb.tv per each year that they donate to MLBPAA. For example, if I make a donation in April 2024 and get the discount for the 2024 season, then they do not want that person coming back in February 2025 asking for a discount on the 2025 season.  It is worded poorly, but I strongly suspect new members also get the discount. You may want to inquire with MLBPAA. I emailed them last year and they were responsive.
    • Touché.  I remember your eyewitness observations.
    • ordash 12:45 Jordan Westburg gets overshadowed in the strong Orioles system. Do you think he can be an everyday guy by year's end?   Eric A Longenhagen 12:46 I have more a 45 on him because the defense is kinda bleh. Might be out-talented by the others. Still a good player, just ideally want him to have a lefty/defense caddy. Think J Ortiz was more an omnisituational guy, Westy has more juice tho.
    • Nervous Flyball Pitcher 12:41 Can science explain why multiple projection systems (ZiPS and Steamer) think Coby Mayo will play above average 3B defense? I would be thrilled, but those conclusions are the direct opposite of what prospect writers say. I think Longenhagen/Taruskin have projected him at RF since last year.   Eric A Longenhagen 12:43 Yeah, evaluating minor league defense visually (when you can actually do it thoroughly) will give you way better results than a proj system is going to. MAybe proprietary minor league kinatrax and statcast type stuff could help you model defense if you had access to that data.
