Orioles offical denies report


Tony-OH

Recommended Posts

I just wanted to put out there that an Orioles official has contacted the Hangout and denied this report and said "it is completely inaccurate."

Now this official has no reason to lie to me but then again, neither did the other contacts.

At this point all we can do is wait. We had two different sources from two different circles of baseball tell us this was a done deal, 100 percent. Now maybe the players are a bit off or something but there just seems to be way too much smoke for their not to be some fire.

All I can say is stay tuned and we will report what we hear.

The ability of a team to implement ample obfuscation is paramount to success.

In other words the Orioles benefit from nobody knowing what the hell is going on. Smoke and mirrors at its best. I still say the deal goes down.

I believe the deal goes down, too.

But I also have a feeling this may be the end of the information from most of the insiders, at least for a while. I get the sense that this deal may be part of something bigger, possibly a series of transactions or a three-team exchange, and if so then the premature info may affect it or at least embarrass AM.

He must have a good idea of who the sources are, and clamping down on them should be within his power.

If the papers are at the MLB offices, what did they do, ask MLB to rip them up? That just doesn't make sense. I think the Gossage explaination makes sense, though I don't think this would be really huge news in MLB. Roberts isn't really a superstar.

    • 09 romorr: Would you do a Hall/Cowser trade for Brandon Woodruff?     1:09  Dan Szymborski: I might     1:09  Dan Szymborski: I’d want an extension window     1:10  Dan Szymborski: I think the Orioles should be adding talent, but I think in FA right now     1:10  Dan Szymborski: I think you don’t start cashing in everyone until you have MORE confirmation that you’re good
    • Tampa is a purely transactional team like the A’s.   The Orioles have more resources and can be a hybrid much like the Indians or Mariners.  They can lay out for one or two big free agent contracts and extend their own players.   They will begin being more transactional in 3-4 years when the first wave of players gets closer to free agency.
    • Are the O's willing to participate in the posting process?
    • I wonder if this guy could be a second pitching addition for us.   Seems like he might make a good long reliever/spot starter. https://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2022/12/npbs-hanshin-tigers-post-shintaro-fujinami.html  
    • I wimped out and said 120-139.  I really want the answer to be 140-159.   But I’m guessing the cap will be right around 140 or just under.   One factor could be how many pitches Grayson is throwing to get through these innings.  In his pre-injury outings, he was cruising along at 14.9 pitches per inning.   Those are very low stress innings.  But if Grayson finds himself throwing 18 pitches per inning next year in the majors, that’s a different ballgame.  
    • A little short on job title, but as a grateful longtime reader from back in the day, noticed this in Szymborski's chat today. SEA is one of those teams gotta fight past for AL top 6 in the shorter term. 1:06 Josh R: Noticed this in a transactions list :                                      Mariners Named Dave Cameron senior director, player procurement,                                                 Is this the former FanGraphs Dave Cameron?     1:06  Dan Szymborski: Yes     1:06  Dan Szymborski: (Sorry, was making sure he made it official or I couldn’t say anything)     1:06  Dan Szymborski:     Dave Cameron @OneDaveCameron     I should probably mention this now that it’s official. I get to do some really cool stuff for the @Mariners going forward. Quite a journey from @ussmariner (or asbs-m for us extra old people) to now. I couldn’t be more excited. Sincere thank you to all.
