What is the "right offer"?

I would prefer Jones, Clement, Triunfel and Sherrill...That would be the best case scenario, assuming you can't get Tillman in this deal instead of Sherrill.
I agree, that'd be a better deal, but I don't think Seattle will give up Jones and Clement. If they do, I'd take whatever else we can get beyond those two and make the deal.

I didn't know what the right offer was, but I had a figure you'd be here to tell me what it was. ;)

Anywho, doesn't look like MacPhail is gonna get his 4...

Wouldn't Murton be stuck behind Scott. My reason for Veal is we need some depth at AA. Also, I'm hoping Seattle would consider Morrow if we accept him as part of a 3-1. Let them keep Sherill. I would accept Tillman instead of Morrow only if we get Sherrill. It would of course mean that we must get Gallagher from the Cubs.
Murton or Scott would play LF and the other would DH or play 1B. There are plenty of at bats around for everybody.

If JoeyR5 is right and the BRob deal is dead because of our asking price being too high(how that is being defined, i am not sure), that kind of answers my question in this thread.

The right offer could very well mean some team overpaying....I really do think AM is asking for too much for these guys.

Just an FYI, im done posting on this site, and will likely keep things with the insiders to a PM. Sorry if I haven't been right, but it's called a source. I had about 10 PM's telling me how good I am the day Tony had it on his front page, and Belkast made a thread, and th eother sources agreed.

If I were in your shoes I'd do the same thing. Things have been so hopless for the O's for so long, we've got a kill the messenger mentality around here right now. Best of luck. I look forward to seeing the Cubs in the WS this year.

If you want to stop posting, that's fine. If you want to keep posting, that's fine too. Just don't go crying every time someone questions you because you're relatively new here and your post count is low.

Respect is earned. It doesn't come from saying "You should respect me."

I don't blame him...People were ignorant to him in the thread he started.

I think it was how the thread was phrased... had he posted "I'm hearing..... take it for what it's worth..." that would have been easier to swallow... the way he posted it made it sound like a fact that could not be challenged.. and well, how many of those have we been through this offseason? Probably not a good idea to start a thread with that "air" about it, even if you know it's true.

I can't say because I don't know what else out there or what else could have happened with the Dodgers...I think the Dodgers stuff bothers me more than anything.

So we can at least agree that you wouldn't have accepted a deal with the M's at this point.

I don't believe we were offered the great deals from the Dodgers that were mentioned here.

He could have said that but he has been posting on here long enough and had enough backing from our insiders that people should know he has a source.

How can i agree on this? I have no idea what has been offered.

Wasn't there a story last week or so that said they offered Jones, Clement and Sherrill?

Well again, it seems like you have similiar expectations. Even if we go back to Tejada, you said you wouldn't have made that trade, so his expectations were lower in that case.

    • Considering the issues they have had with actual sewage backing up in that dump I don't think that would be a good fit.
    • 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.
