I'm not sold on the Yankees staying power. At all. There's still plenty of hope for the O's to repeat as AL East champions. In light of that, no major sell moves.

I agree with this. Having said that, I'm not sure how much of the trade market would be there for Ubaldo at the deadline. Davis' value would be even less given he's a rental. I think in his case, he gets a QO and the team watches Davis walk.

I've heard and read some things on the radio and in various forums that the Os are considering making a run to resign Chen. This might be the best move. I don't think that the Os should completely dismantle themselves in a fire sale. The only player I voted to trade/whatever is Chris Davis. I think that he's gone after this season. I wouldn't mind trading Norris but the team won't get a whole lot for him.

Re-signing Chen, or at least attempting to, is a smart move. We have to hold on to reliable arms. I love the guys at Norfolk, but we don't know what they'll do with the Orioles.

The Yankees have two pitchers in Pineda and Eovaldi. Unless you think Tanaka will be healthy at some point or the fat man will sip at the Colon fountain of youth.

You forgot Betances and Miller. The Yanks BP could rival KC's this year. If they take a lead into the 8th inning it's game over.

Who's that? Never heard of them. If....

They need good starting pitching regardless of who they have sitting in the BP.

I would definitely trade Ubaldo or Chen if you could get a big package. I doubt you do, but just saying to answer the OP.

Chen might get you a decent set of prospects. Will it be more than the pick? Who knows.....

    • Have you seen the game threads?  We're never going to make the post season w/ those kind of fans.  We might as well just give them all pink hats.
    • I think Burnes gets 5 days rest because of the off day tomorrow so it seems like a good spot to push him a little.  He only threw 107, so its not like we went Dusty Baker on him.   I mentioned that I think Hyde has to manage our starters a little less delicately with our bullpen sucking.  It looks Hyde is inclined to agree with this.
    • Have you seen the lineups? They are a joke. Hyde has to go too.     😎 Insomnia in progress. 
    • I have to admit I am all for resigning Burnes too, I just can't remember the last time the O's signed a free agent the other top teams wanted.  I don't think even Chris Davis fits that category because the O's were bidding against themselves.  Albert Belle?  I guess I'll just try to be hopeful.  I can't see Rubenstein making himself the public face of the franchise and then turning around and basically saying this is going to be my cash cow.  I guess we'll soon find out.  I have to admit I am looking forward to this way more than the election.  lol
    • It seems to me they should probably change their approach or the season will end up a disaster.  It’s frankly unexplainable they haven’t demoted/traded/DFA’d the players that aren’t performing.  It’s a joke management thinks this group of players has any chance of winning anything.  Imagine if they could just walk more..
    • Sorry I’m not Gretzky fan , lol . And don’t know any of his quotes. But I would love to hear it , if you can share.    Speaking of bullpen, I agree that ours needs to be augmented and upgraded.  The trade deadline is coming soon so……..
    • I agree. He's a major factor in our odds to win a World Series. Gotta go for it while you can and keep him if we can. I generally don't like big contracts and view them as over pays. I criticized the Albert Belle signing, I hated the Ubaldo Jimenez signing, and I didn't feel comfortable with the Chris Davis extension. But to me those players did not have a solid consistent careers as a pure Ace player like Burnes does. Burnes is a player I feel confident that you know what you're getting, even if we can expect a decline by age 35. Up to that point, you're getting a perennial Cy Young competitor to anchor your entire Pitching Staff and give you a chance to win when you need it most just like he did tonight in the game 3 rubber match in a series against division rivals. This series against the Red Sox, Burnes was effectively the Stopper and got us back on track. I'm all for resigning Corbin Burnes! It's on my Christmas wish list!
