Do some of you guys seriously think we might get Kemp back for JJ? Maybe I'm totally out of touch but that seems like a pipe dream. I know Kemp had a down year but the Dodgers fanbase would riot if they traded him for Jim Johnson.

I completely agree. However, I want to share what I have with you guys. I think most appreciate it.

I certainly appreciate the info but please don't turn into one of these "take my ball and go home" insiders that we've had come and go over the past few years. Some people are going to doubt you, some people will refuse to believe anything you say. It comes with the territory of claiming insider knowledge. So far you've been pretty accurate and I definitely value your contributions to the board but don't let a few "haters" expressing their doubts bring you down.

I was told this morning that the Orioles are trying to trade Johnson before the meetings. Looks like it will be with the dodgers.

Everything you just said was by Ken. Please stop acting like you have inside info. Thanks

Why didn't you make a thread about this before Ken Posted it?

Do you know me or the inside info I have already brought to the Hangout. I do have info and everyone who has witnessed it can vouch for me.

Please stop acting like you know what I do and don't have.

Here's Andre Ethier's contract:

2014: $15.5M

2015: $18M

2016: $18M

2017: $17.5M

2018: $17.5M Vesting Option, $2.5M buyout (Option vests if Ethier has 550 PAs in 2017 or 1100 PAs combined in 2016-2017)

I'd like to have Ethier on the team. But I'm only taking him back if the Dodgers pay A LOT of that salary, because having a likely declining 2-win OFer for five years and ~17M a year seems a lot worse financially than having a closer for ~10M but just one year.

I'd need at least 30M coming back.

Notice how Ken Rosenthat said that we are the ones desperately trying to trade Johnson, not the other way around. The biggest thing we will get out of this deal is financial relief; that's why we are trading him. Don't expect a great haul in return. This isn't MacPhail doing this trade.

I answered that question in a previous post. I wanted Ken to confirm it so I didn't get blasted on here, but you have already blasted me.

I posted all of our GGs, Silver Sluggers, the MVP voting, and the Kazmir deal

True, but Rosenthal isn't getting his stuff from Peter either. It isn't like Ken and the Orioles have a warm fuzzy history. I like Rosenthal, but it definitely takes his jabs at the Orioles (not blaming him, just making the point).

He is a realist and knows how PA is.

    • **DISCLAIMER** - To get this out of the way up front, while I did clear this idea with Tony in advance, this contest is in no way affiliated or associated with the Orioles Hangout. This is 100% through me and I am putting this on for fellow OH’ers at my sole discretion.  Brief background: Obviously, I’m a huge Orioles fan…otherwise I wouldn’t be on here 🤣. I’ve been a OH’er for a while (20+ years) but am an infrequent flyer, posting wise. Some of you will know I’m most active on the minor league and draft/intl signings boards. I’ve always been very interested in the draft and prospect development aspects of baseball.  Many years ago on here, a poster named Chris (don’t recall his handle) did a giveaway of official Oriole photos that were autographed. I thought that was awesome - and I happened to win that giveaway. That, along with the Orioles resurgence, has inspired me to give back to the awesome community we have here at OH! The discussion and knowledge found here cannot be found anywhere else in the world. As big of an Orioles fan as I am, I’m arguably an even bigger sportscard and memorabilia collector. So, I’ll be giving away a select lot of Orioles baseball cards (still working on deciding exactly which ones) that include a 2023 Topps flagship Gunnar rookie graded SGC 10, 1 each of Adley, GH, GRod and Holliday “1st Bowman”, at least one of each Cal, Earl and Brooks. There will also be some cards of recent draftees and international signings. I will probably toss in an autograph card or two. Maybe a few others, just depends on what all I can fit inside the package. The winner can keep these for themselves, or pass along to their kiddos (or grandkids). There is ZERO cost or obligation to enter. I’m even covering shipping! OK, enough of all of that. Here’s how it works. It’s pretty simple but here’s the process: 1) To enter simply comment “Orioles Magic” on this post. You have until Sun, May 26 at 11:59 pm EST to get your entry in and are obviously only allowed one entry per person. Only those who live in the contiguous 48 states on the mainland and APO/FPO addresses are eligible to enter. Apologies to those who live elsewhere. 2) I’ll accumulate the entries and run them all through random dot org. I’ll shuffle the list 8 times (Cal’s number). The one left at the top of the list after spin 8 is the winner. I’ll run the randomizer at some point on Memorial Day and post the results here. I’ll tag the winner and also PM them to get the shipping details. Simple as that! Best of luck to you all and most importantly - GO ORIOLES!!!
    • Here we are with one of the funniest names in all of baseball.
    • 0-2 fastball right down the middle. Got lucky there.
    • I agree.  I don't understand letting him rot on the bench.  I'm sure he is frustrated,  too.
