It was posted briefly somewhere in the O's deciding what pitchers the O's want for Roberts thread.

But about the article, that's what the O's should want. This will probably start another argument between O's and Cubs fans about BRobs value and the Cubs prospects values, but that's what the O's should be asking for.

I really believe that if a deal does happen, it will be Gallagher, Cedeno, Murton, and Veal for BRob. Regardless of what we all think and how we all value players, MacPhail isn't gonna accept anything less than that. It's whether or not Hendry is willing to pony up the players.

Sounds about right, but I am sure that THEY will be here any minute to tell us how that is ridicules and no way to we get any of their amazing players. I miss being able to read good O's talk on here. We can't even start these kind of topics anymore without Cubs trolls ruining them. It is getting to the point that I just read the minors board now.

I say Gallagher, Cedeno, Hart and Thomas and we call it a day and get them out of here for awhile

Note: I do not mean ALL Cubs fans. There are a few that I enjoy reading.

How would Cedeno, Gallahger, and two prospects equate to those two prospects being Murton & Veal? I don't think the O's want Murton. That's part of the problem. The Cubs want to move him but the O's don't want him. The O's would rather have a couple of good prospects instead. I agree with them. Despite what our Cub friends have been selling, Murton regressed last year and looks to be an average LF at best. With Scott in the picture and Reimold getting close, the O's have little need for him. Can the O's & Cubs agree on those two prospects? Unlike the teams' fans, I think so.

Agree with this 100%. We have Scott and Reimold already so Murton (and his relatively average performance over the past two years) may be more valuable to the Cubs anyway as a fourth OFer.

The only certainties in this deal, IMO, are Gallagher and Cedeno. The Cubs have little use for Cedeno as a MI after acquiring BRob, unless he's their fifth OFer. We would have a need at SS or 2B to see if Cedeno could perform at the league average before looking for a better prospect. But Cedeno profiles as the third piece of this deal, IMO.

I believe the second piece of the puzzle should be a quality one in the mold of Colvin/Ceda/Veal (similar to what the Tigers received for Renteria) and the other piece besides Cedeno should be a top 15-20 organizational prospect (I've previously mentioned Huseby, Burke and Suarez).

I am beginning to also agree that the Orioles don't want Murton.

Some writer recently said we want Eric Patterson...Maybe we are trying to put EPat in the deal and not Murton and want a high ceiling guy like Colvin?

I still think it the 4th player that is the hold up...Also, if we are trading Payton in the deal, i think the Cubs could be asking us to eat some money.

You posted the other day that Murton was definitely in the deal, no?

Yea, i did believe that for everything we were hearing nationally and things I was hearing privately but there are some recent things that make me believe that is no longer the case.

I think Cedeno and Gallagher are in it...After that, it is up in the air...In other words, i think this article is right.

Most of this is based on opinion, some based on info I have heard.

Its amazing how it seems Veals value has hit a snag. O's scouts must have not been impressed?

No offense, but there are no Cubs fans in this thread. Really, this is unnecessary.

There is still plenty of good stuff to read on here about the Orioles.

None taken at all. I did not mean any disrespect to the board or any of the O's fans. I respect all of your opinions and spend half my day reading them. :D

As for my frustration with the Cub trolls.....Give them a few minutes. They will be here. They must have had to step out for a minute or two. As soon as they see this thread, they will start trolling. No way this thread makes it without them coming in and forcing arguments with board members. Please see any other Roberts/Cubs threads on here.

Everyone here is a "board member."

I think perhaps you need to find a better way to deal with folks whose opinions don't agree with yours than stereotyping them and calling them names.

    • This is a secondary or more accurately a thirdly or even a fourthly move.  Something he does all of the time.  It means next to nothing.  Elias loves to do this kind of thing.  And overall......it doesn't matter!   He may hit 1 out of 11 or even 2 out of 20 of these things....which is fine!  It is all reward and no risk.  So whatever.    At the very least it provides depth in the minor leagues.  Will it make or break the Os?  Hell no. If you can't tell the difference between me talking about Elias's fascination with other teams high velocity/high spin castoffs who can't stay on the major league club, and real actual major league moves?  Then you haven't been paying attention. I could give you 5 examples just in the past year.  Just another example of people like you COMPLETELY lying about a post I make.  And don't worry......you aren't alone.  Lots of people do it on here.  Again.....it doesn't matter.  This move.  Doesn't matter.   But if you want to call me a troll for you thinking I THINK that these types of moves somehow invalidate what Elias has done here overall for the past 5 years?   Then you be you.    But it isn't true. 
    • At what cost? You weren't getting Cease for DL Hall and Ortiz or it would have happened. Would you have been fine trading away Westburg or Cowser+ for him? At least he's having an up year from 2023. 2023 2024  
    • For me, it’s not about Moore’s tournament performance as much as his apparent ability to square the ball up and use the entire field. Legit power and hit tool. 
    • Right, which is why the Tigers kicked in 18M.
    • Norby was cleaner at 2B, but Moore has better athleticism. Moore would need a lot of work to stay on the dirt. I would think they want to move him quickly, whichever team takes him. 
    • 3. There was a lot of second guessing of the Verlander trade at the time.  Verlander was seen by many as a pitcher who's best days where behind him. 
    • Just a friendly FYI: If you click on the Tweet itself to open it, and then "copy" the web address of that Tweet, you can then "paste' the Tweet here and it'll imbed properly and the Tweet itself will appear within your post here (versus being a clickable link in your post).   The "copy link" feature of Twitter doesn't always work on message boards any more.
