Some info


MoeknowsO's

Recommended Posts

Again, I have a friend in the press, who is a big O's fan like me. He again talked to someone in the press in The Seattle area, and this is what was passed along.

His contact told him that a deal with another AL team,for a big pitcher is almost done. The Seattle contact speculated it would be Bedard & a possible thrown in player, for four Mariner prospcts headed by Jones. He didnt have any other Mariner names, but heard the name Tillman being linked.

My guy said he would call me tomorrow if he heard anything else.

Take it for what its worth, ME I take everything with a grain of salt these days, but it was something to throw out.

Peace

Listen, if you don't like the thread, don't post in it. He got some information and thought it would be good enough to pass along. No reason to give him a hard time.

If you are annoyed with all these threads, maybe you spend a little too much time on here. Just a thought. ;)

And Thanks Moe. I know you are sticking your neck out on the line for posting something like this.

Hopefully you are right, it would be nice to have this taken care of to see if we can pull off any other moves before we break for spring training.

Seriously, it's not like he posted some radically misleading thread title, or posted something definitive. The post is full of those nice qualifiers saying "hey, I heard this. Maybe somethings gonna happen, whatcha think?"

It's speculation about speculation. No offense to anyone, but it's worthless info.

Seriously...The OH crybaby club is at it again!

Thanks for the info Moe.

How about we discuss this when an actual deal is made.

And just listen to the crickets chirp until then? Why not speculate until then?!?;)

How reliable would you consider your friends' source to be?

BTW, if we do trade Bedard, it probably will happen soon and it will be to Seattle.

Also, if we trade Bedard for 4 or 5 players, we are likely sending them something back because of 40 man issues.

And, we also know that a package is likely headed up by Jones.

Nothing said by Moe is any kind of a surprise or reach.

Yep. Agreed. Nice to hear it from another source. I mean, all off-season it's felt like we're the NSA just listening to chatter and trying to decipher when it gets "hot" enough to think something's going to happen. This is just a bit more that leads (me? us?) to believe that something is imminent. The more varied the sources saying "aye" the better the odds.

All with a grain of salt, of course. We've had false positives before.

Thanks for the info. It would be nice if a trade was announced this weekend since Seattle is holding their FanFest now (Jan 26st and 27th). :cool:

Agreed. People are in control of what they choose to read and believe. I appreciate the post. This speculation is interesting and just as speculative as most of what passes as media coverage. Keep posting and thanks.

    • We disagree.  Disparage his performance all you want but he was out there per MLB for the years he was signed for.  Fact is he provided much value to the clubs who disagreed not once but twice with you (Seattle AND Twins) while your approach removed his crucial bat ( and let Markakis walk too)  from the 2014 ALCS team that was replaced with ????? Travis Snider .   I remain steadfast in believing not giving Cruz an additional year was nowhere near the risk incurred  by the other poor choices made that offseason.  And the results were as expected when the team had these critical resources removed and not replaced much less upgraded. 
    • The stats would strongly indicate otherwise, but it seems like they still like Maikol Hernandez. I wonder if that's just because of the obvious - his bonus - and they don't want to give up on him or if there's something they're seeing in BP or whatever that isn't translating yet.
    • I agree with RZNJ for the most part, but some it will depend on their performance in extended spring training. Estrada obviously has the most advanced bat and he could be given the Bencosme experience, so he could find himself in Delmarva earlier, especially when/if Holliday is promoted to Aberdeen. Right now you have to imagine that Holliday is the starting Delmarva SS and Angel Tejada is the 2B to start the year.  If he looks ready, Estrada could skip the FCL and go straight to Delmarva and play 2B with Tejada being more of a super utility between 2B, 3B, and SS on occasion. De Los Santos will be the 3B. Now when/if Holliday is promoted, who plays SS at Delmarva? Adam Crampton could be there to play for a bit, but they may already have him backing up in Aberdeen. A healty Anthon Servideo cold also be a choice to hold it down for a bit. I don't see them pushing Hernandez to Delmarva after his awful FCL season, so that could in theory open up a spot for Amparo or Arias to go up and play there as the SS but i really think the orioles would prefer to ease them in through the FCL.  
    • BTV guesses Pablo's two years to go worth about 6% more than Mullins three years to go, though up around $35-40mm much of their ranges overlap. It guesses the four years of Trevor Rogers are the closest precise match for Mullins straight up, and Jesus Luzardo's four years would get you about 75% of the way to fair Mullins value. It's interesting the gap between Seth Johnson and Chayce McDermott in Tony's rankings - the Rays let Johnson go to get Jose Siri as a re-seed of the Kiermaier type player.    Mullins and Pablo make for an interesting debate how a Genuine CF and Pretty Good Pitcher contrast for run prevention. Since everyone's a hedge fund manager, I'm sure all are trying to squeeze each other for that 2%.    I bet Sig and Oz Ocampo got on well back in the day. Putting more eggs in 2 years of Pablo Lopez when you are subtracting Mullins from those rosters feels like a lot of faith for me in a Good not Great pitcher.    If we want to play the innings games with Lopez, he's had intermittent shoulder strains and before 2022's 180, 110 was his previous high.     That's not necessarily damning - pitchers are being intentionally trained to strain their mechanisms and if they tap out around 140-ish innings, just get another Driveline Student of the Week. But I wouldn't expect Pablo Lopez in 2023 to be much more effective than a bullpen day in October if he completed 32 starts and needed to go in Game 2.     Also true of Taillon, Manaea, etc, but at least there Mullins helping the Club finish sixth or better in the league, no sure thing even with both those talents.
    • Haskin is one of these weird guys whose good OBP is largely driven by getting hit by pitches.   Last year he had 43 walks, 24 HBP.  He also was HBP 20 times in 2021.   Seems like we always have a couple of these guys. 
    • Lowther is the only guy that I would say has little chance to rebound back onto the list unless he shows back up a new pitcher next spring.  All of the guys that dropped off are still interesting and worth following, but they have things they need to improve on and prove next year. I'll probably end up going out to 75 again so you'll see some of these guys in that 31-50 range.
    • 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.
