What is the market for Davis, Wieters, Chen, and O'Day?

I'm curious to see what the rest of you think these guys can bring back in trade. They all would seem to have some value....but as two month rentals?

Are they worth trading? Will they bring back something significantly better than a compensation pick (which I'm assuming we would get after we offer Davis, Wieters, and Chen QO's)?

Like I've said previously if we are more than five games out of the division lead at the end of the month, I think we are sellers.

Chen and Wieters are worth trading, Davis and O'Day are not. I don't think the latter two will bring back much in a trade. Getting the comp pick for Davis will probably be more valuable than any prospect they receive from a trade. And I want the Orioles to do everything in their power to keep O'Day. As for Chen, I believe they can get some decent prospects back for him. He would be a terrific addition for a National League team in a big ballpark. A team like the Giants would be a perfect fit for him. They badly need another reliable starter. I don't know how good the Giants farm system is but they traded away Zach Wheeler for Beltran and a couple top prospects for Peavy last year so it's not like they are unwilling to trade away prospects. They would be a good trade partner for the Orioles.

I feel like a two month rental may not get you what it once did.

Teams value cheap cost controlled players more than ever......especially when that talent is good.

I would be extremely happy if any of those guys brought us back a top 100 prospect. I think we might land some players in the next wave 100-200 range, which would still end up being top 10 guys in our organization. Bringing back three or four players like that wouldn't be a bad return.

Exhibit A: Eduardo Rodriguez. Not saying another GM would be willing to do it, but I bet someone would.

After struggling at Bowie with us for most of last season I think Eduardo was solidly in that 100-200 range that I was speaking of at the time of the trade.

Chen might have the most value to us at the deadline of the four I mentioned in the OP. Maybe he brings back that top 100 prospect.

I think Chen could get a pretty decent return. I think Wieters would be the easiest to part with as far as having a replacement. My biggest hope is that DD doesn't overestimate our playoff chances and go for it this year. We will be in bad shape if that happens.

It's definitely a seller's market.

But they won't sell....

I'm really kind of torn on this. I just don't have the feeling that this team can turn it around. But, as others have pointed out, our record is right around where KC was this time last year. Can we make a move or two that can infuse this team with a spark?

Chen and Wieters are worth trading, Davis and O'Day are not. .....

I agree that we probably keep two of those four, but I think we keep Chen. Wieters is a maybe- he might not get so much back in a trade since he's still getting the rust off. No way we keep Oday- high priced set up men go elsewhere and become closers, and Britton is going anywhere. Davis is the interesting one to me, especially if Paramalee stays when Gausman is brought up. Sure Chris will be over priced, but he fills a void here. Just wish I was a fly on DD's wall this week!

I think Chen (a lefty starter) would be the one impending free-agent that could possibly bring a very nice "prospect" in return. I'm talking some other teams top 5 minor leaguer. I don't think the O's are right now in a "sell-mode" but that could change over the next 10 days. I would be satisfied to hang onto Wieters and Davis and get the compensatory pick for both. I just really don't think that any potential trade-partner will offer anything of significant value for those 2 ballplayers.

In the last couple of weeks I've seen myself drift into sell territory, if we can get value back. 2015 doesn't mean as much to me as getting back solid future value for Chen and Weiters, if that value can be had. We have maybe a 10% chance of resigning either of them, and while the draft picks are good, I think we'll end up looking back with regret if we don't take advantage of potential good deals.

Davis, in this trade market where Adam Lind is the next best option, for teams like the Astros and Pittsburgh who have deep farm systems?

The reason the Orioles should be sellers.

I believe the market for each is the equivalent of compensation pick a year later in the minors with so-so development. And of course fodder to make it look good.

This is a moot point.

No matter how much and vocal some of the fans about being sellers.

This FO is not going to become sellers, it's not going to happen.

    • Pitchers to cut/leavingFA Anthony Castro Chris Ellis - 60 Day IL Logan Gillaspie Louis Head Jordan Lyles Jake Reed Beau Susler Chris Vallimont Spenser Watkins Cathers, IF Cut/LeavingFA Robinson Chirinos Cam Gallagher Tyler Nevin  Rougned Odor Jesus Aguilar I am going to give a spot to Diaz, its AAA Depth and we can always cut him after ST. With Means coming of the 60 Day, I think that puts us at 12 Open Spots I'm probably only protecting 6 MILB guys, so I would go into my offseason with 6 open spots and start crushing the Waiver Wire (the 5 listed in the original post plus Maverick (I know its slim, but we really have almost no catching depth in the milb and we have to protect it even if its a 1% chance hes selected in the Rule V) There's a part of me that wants to keep a couple of the pitchers listed above, but I believe many would pass through waivers and those that don't can easily be replaced on the waiver wire. That's probably where we could find some more catcher depth too, but I'd use most of those spots on more waiver wire pitching like last year.      
    • This is a huge winter for Mateo.  he should have confidence enough to put in the work to get better for next year.  The Orioles gave him a chance.  He took it.   Now put in the work Mr. Mateo.
    • Well, if you miss on 4th down, you assume they get it at the 2.  The idea that they got it on the 20 changes everything. I don’t mind the decision, after reading more and hearing more explanations.  I still think he should have taken the points but ultimately, I think at best they go into OT if they took the points and more than likely lose in regular time.
    • I mean, I can see being upset that they didn’t play well and blew the playoff chance.  I just don’t get why it matters that it was to division teams.  I’m more upset that they lost to Detroit and Oakland, teams that were far inferior.
    • I expect the lack of a shift to help left-handed hitters.  But  the SS can still be just to the left of 2nd base.  The difference will be the 2nd baseman has to start on the dirt.
    • Because Lamar can pick up 1-2 yards with his feet in his sleep. Odds fall off a cliff when it's from the goal line and he's passing. You obviously take the 3 unless you're at like the one and you're just having Lamar lunge forward. But if you miss on fourth you're giving the game away. It's insane how Harbs keeps doing the same thing to almost justify all the other previous awful game ending decisions he's made.
    • Because we had a very good chance to win the season series against Tampa, Boston and Toronto, and blew our chances against the first two.  If we blew it against Toronto as well, I find that annoying.   It’s not just that we lost these series, it’s that we had a lead in these series and then didn’t play well against these teams in August and September.
