Oh i agree...I think you could get an arm like James Hoey or some kind of borderline 3rd/4th OFer type guy. IE, something alot of organizations have but something that could help us now.

More like a PTBNL. See Maroth, Mike.

Good point but Maroth has been worse and has a lower value although the longer we hold onto Trax, the more this won't be the case.

I can assure you that one thing I will not be doing this evening is going 15 rounds with you on a Maroth v Trachsel debate. ;)

LOL...To be honest with you Dave, if the O's wait, i totally agree that a PTBNL is the best they will get.

If they act now, i think they can do better.

Won't make an impact on the major league team for a few years, but Fernando Martinez from the Mets. He's 18, and some have said he's the next Manny Ramirez (other than the character, of course). He's hitting .271 with 4 homers in AA, which is pretty ridiculous for an 18 year old. He's one of my favorite prospects in any organization, and I'd love to get him.

So you should realize why people think trading Bedard is so good for the team.

No. Because I really don't think thats what would turn this team around. I'm sorry I really can't be convinced right now that that is what would be best for this team as of now, or the future. What happens if we trade Bedard, Guthrie comes back to earth, and Cabrera still doesnt develop? We're left where we were for 5 or more years. Needing more starting pitching.

Of the bunch mentioned by everyone I'd have to go with Crawford. We need someone who can field his position well AND is an offensive threat. As far as I'm concerned Crawford is going to be that for years to come.

Right now Baldelli just seems really injury prone, and it's not as if they're silly little accidents that he gets unlucky with. It's really a shame because when he is healthy he is another player I'd love to have.

    • Did most people miss the words elite and controlled in the title? Surprised at how easily so many people said no, when I thought the bullpen was a consensus weakness of this team. I like Kjerstad too and you don't trade him for just anyone. But if you can get a difference making 8th/9th inning guy, who isn't a rental, that seems worth considering. 
    • No problem. Like I said I think Mike is open minded. Big difference obviously from shagging pre game to playing in games. Said Mayo is working on OF behind the scenes.

    • He didn’t cover that. Just said he responded well to the injection. Said in January he felt weird sensation ramping up. He felt like at time he could throw threw it. Credited rest and staff working with him. Build him back slowly in minors.    I enjoy listening to Front Office show and with Sirius app can go back and listen. 
    • I saw he was just put on the IL for a knee sprain. I hope it's not serious.

    • Thanks for sharing! I think Mayo in the OF is a good idea. Westburg is proving himself capable of being an every day option at 3B. 1B is covered for now unless something unexpected happens with Mountcastle. All of the OF prospects are left handed so Mayo would help balance that out.
