  1. 1. Do you trade Bedard for Jones, Tillman and Sherrill?

Recommended Posts

I mentioned in the Bavasi thread that it is my opinion that Sherrill, Tillman and Jones are going to be coming here in a Bedard deal.

I speculated that a 4th player is probably what we are waiting for or we are "fighting" over who that 4th player is.

But let's say that the deal is Tillman, Sherrill and Jones and that's it...Do you make that trade?

I do the trade. Not just because I want to see something happen, but because Jones for Bedard is a fair trade. Sherrill will most likely be traded later down the line, or Walker will be in his place.

Tillman was their pitcher of the year and looks to have a high upside. I would like to get a 4th player but I wouldnt hold out for it.

I say no. I don't really like that deal. Sherril isn't going to help us in the long run, unless we flip him for something.

If that was what the deal at hand was, I'd at least try my hardest to add some dead weight to hopefully get someone more like Triunfel or Clement.

Sure, but with the way talks have been going, I am confident we can get one or two more players.

Its possible we want Truinfel/Clement as the second piece in that deal. The M's don't want to give up either and are probably offering Chen or somebody similar.

We can throw back somebody so the M's can include Truinfel/Clement or we can ask for Chen and another guy (my preference is Michael Saunders) to settle the difference. I think there are few ways that we can go, but we can get a little creative in getting these things done.

Would a Roberts deal change the voting here?

Not for me. We shouldn't worry about plugging specific holes at the moment, so having Roberts or having a specific return for Roberts doesn't affect my vote. Especially since I'm getting the sense that the Sherrill for Lillibridge flip was a fantasy, I don't think we're getting enough talent back.

    • Pinto was real close to being at the end of the list along with Rhodes and Armbruester. Pinto's size, his mediocre fastball (91-93), and the fact a lot of  his swing and miss were on chases on the slider or split change makes me want to see him prove it against Double-A pitching.  I was too aggressive with his ranking last year for sure.  Rhodes almost made it, but I just don't see the carrying tool that will allow him to be a starter. He's similar to Haskin and I just prefer Haskin a bit more because he's started to get to his game power a bit while Rhodes has never really shown game power. Rhodes does have better plate discipline and is a good defender on the corners with better speed than Haskin, but Haskin has performed ok at a higher level so he gets the nod for me. Saying that, they are very similar profile guys.
    • The MLB Network had a writer covering the Marlins on the other day and she mentioned Mullins for Lopez and seemed to indicate the Marlins may have to add someone else. I wonder if that is an even trade or if we have to add someone. It seems to me that trading for a young pitcher and signing a veteran would be the best use of our resources.
    • Asking here as honestly have no clue, is the Fan Cost Index sensitive to StubHub, Seatgeek, etc?     My guess is it uses the Clubs List Price, but like everything else in the world that's just the starting point of a negotiation. Now that the team is better and the kiddo old enough, will probably get back more next season, but know I'm behind on the most efficient consumer practices for any given day.     The Yard won't be as full as it'll get in a few years, so imagining surge pricing will only be taking baby steps in 2023.
    • I don't think we really disagree about much. There is wide array of ticket prices. And I think even Fan Price Index shows the Orioles being particularly fair, and if I recall correctly their family of four number for 2022 was $156 You're reading my comments as if they were directed at the Orioles. They were not. Nor were they a criticism, as much as an identification of one of the factors that is feeding the decline of generational popularity in baseball. Many of us have a love for the game. For me that love was cemented by two things. My Dad taking me to the ballpark as a kid... and my Little League experience as a kid.  Affordability was a big part of that. When I was a kid we didn't have two nickles to rub together. My father worked two jobs to make ends meet. Mom delivered newspapers to keep us ahead of the bills. But we could still afford to go to 33rd St a couple times a year... Saw Mark Belanger hit a home run...  that was a rare feat.. and I had a ratty old mitt and some fish-heads to play Little League with. I found old deposit bottles in the woods and took 'em to the 7-11 to buy baseball cards. That's where I fell in love with the game. Eventually my father built a very successful business. and we didn't have to worry about that kind of thing.. But I kept my love for the game that was built in those early experiences. Baseball was once literally the cost of a matinee movie...  stands were packed... all the time... but slowly.. generationally.. this has changed... the last generation to FULLY embrace baseball were boomers...  I guess there's a part of me that thinks selling out every game ...and families embracing is early might change the trajectory baseball is on... wishful thinking maybe      
    • The same thing happened in San Francisco when Roman was there.   They had one truly great season with Kaepernick, and then nothing.   Not that I'm comparing Lamar to Kaepernick, but at their best under Roman, they are pretty similar. I don't know if they are using this system because they think Lamar can't handle a more complex system, or because Roman is stuck using the same stuff over and over.    Roman needs to be gone regardless of what happens with Lamar.  They need to get rid of Ricard and start running a real pro-style offense.   
    • I guess I’ve reached the point of the off-season where I’m at do we really need to add a bat?  Stowers and Vavra spent the last 1/3 of the season up. Westburg is ready. Cowser could be ready are June.    Is Brantley, Voit, or Mancini worth even a one year deal?  I could see us rolling with what we have, figuring out what we have, and signing a vet depth bat like Jesus Aguilar to a milb deal with a ST invite. If we need a bat, we can always get a rental at the deadline.
