I would assume we are coming down to the final 7-10 days where we need to make a deal or look to fill voids through FA cause they're gonna need a game plan going into spring training. Plus AM mentioned that the last week of Jan was their deadline to making a deal happen.

Of course anything could happen, even if it's during the season.

I would go as far as Penn, I think. I wouldn't like it, but I'd do it.

Bedard, Penn and Payton

for

Jones, Morrow, Clement, Chen and Sherrill.

That sounds like a pretty fair offer in my opinion. Do you think Seattle would be willing to take on Penn / Payton for Morrow / Chen?

This assumes that Bedard would fetch Jones, Clement and Sherrill, of course.

If I were Seattle I would wonder about it - but Penn does stand a chance to bounce back, he still has potential and Payton would serve as a great utility / backup OF if WLad does not work out.

Penn is still an excellent prospect given his age, IMO.

If Seattle balks at this I would be willing to remove Chen from the deal.

To me, Chen is not a dealbreaker.

Agreed. I would love to have Morrow over Penn with regards to how a future rotation may flush out. Primarily because I think Penn will have a better chance of succeeding in a new environment. Payton / Penn for Morrow (Still sounds harsh if you're Seattle - which obviously, I'm not...) :D

If Seattle has really offered Jones, Clement, and Sherill, then we shouldn't be far off from a deal. Thats a pretty outstanding offer.

I agree. In that's the offer, then I believe we're only looking at a potential 4th being included.

I can't help but get the feeling that the 4th player may be something of significance for each side which bothers me considering that's a fairly decent return as is.

If its a veteran of significance, then I don't mind from our side, unless we're selling Walker short, which I doubt is the case. If its a young guy, then I think I agree with you depending on the specifics.

Welcome to the board, glorydays.

I think you're misreading the article. Nowhere does it say that the Rays offered Young straight up for Miller. I think it means that the Indians turned them down when they asked Miller to be part of the return package (it's poorly written, I know).

Thanks PaulFolk! You may be correct, but I believe the point is that the Indians obviously place a higher value on Miller than what we here at OH do. After all, from the talk I hear here we would have him included in a package for BROB.

Actually, I was thinking it was a 4th player from Seattle. From the sound of the article, we're asking for Jones, Clement, Sherril and either Tillman or Triumfel (if no Morrow is included). Pretty stiff stuff IMO.

McPhail is showing us his dark side - I love it. :cool:

    • What would it take to get Danny Jansen? McCann has been an offensive zero and is on pace for 220 ABs. A solid backup catcher would really help on those nights when Adley is DHing. 
    • The bottom line is that right now they feel the team is better balancing offense and defense with Urias and/or Mateo playing the infield over bringing up Mayo.  That opinion may change tomorrow or it might not until much later.  They think they will win more games with the veterans than throwing another rookie in the mix.  I think they will give Kjersted a good 3-4 week run and if he produces that will continue.  Kjersted and/or Mayo could also get traded for the right deal as well if it significantly helps the pitching staff.  
    • Higher than Tarik Skubal? The guy is a top 10 starter in baseball. 
    • The offense will be fine.  You can’t expect them to score 5 runs a game against the best pitching staffs.  The last 4 of 5 series we have faced the Braves 8th in ERA, the Phillies 1st in ERA, the Yankees 2nd in ERA, and the Guardians, 5th in ERA.  The Astros are 20th but Blanco is 3rd in ERA and Valdez is very good.  The other teams have good players as well so it comes down to getting a few timely hits and converting your chances.  We need someone to get that big hit which we haven’t gotten the last 3 games going 1-14.  
    • I got to ask Kevin Brown a question today. So I asked him which stadium has the best broadcast booth. He responded by saying that Camden Yards does, and that he was not saying that as a homer, but (and I am paraphrasing) that with size, dimension and placement as consideration, the one at Camden Yards is just the best.
    • Westburg has 8-9 errors too...
    • You could say the exact same thing about the last three games skewing the data that the offense a lot.  They had scored 4.6 runs a game against the Braves, Phillies, and Yankees going into the last game against New York.  That is with facing Fried, Suarez, Wheeler, Cortes, and Cole along with a very good to great bullpen from the Braves, Yanks, and Phillies.  The Phillies have the best ERa in the league at 3.09 and we scored 17 runs in 3 games which is almost 6 runs a game.  The Yankees Era is 3.21 and we scored 9 runs in two games then 17 the last game.  The Braves ERa is 3.59 and we scored 11 runs in 3 games.  So to say the offense has not been good for two weeks is just wrong.  They haven’t been good for the last 3 games.  They were decent vs the Braves, great against the Phillies, pretty good 1st two games vs Yanks.  Amazing the last Yankees game and 1st Astros game and then been horrible last 3.
