Nice.  I'm confused though, why did we get a competitive balance pick?  We only made the QO to Trumbo, and then retained him.  We didn't give Wieters the QO, correct?

This has nothing to do with QO’s or free agents.    It’s a pick we get because we’re deemed a small market team.

And because our competitive balance pick last year was after the second round, so the teams after the second round last year switched with the teams after the first round. So we are after the first round this year.

So does Dan trade it?

How much of Trumbo's salary does this cover?

Could this pick + Trumbo get us Samarjza? Of course I would not like that, but I could see DD doing that. 

Depends on both teams valuations of those players, but a 2014 estimate has the picks between 30-35 worth about 13 million in surplus value. If you think Trumbo returns to career averages and Samardzija is worth pretty much what he’s being paid, that pick would be fair value to add in a Trumbo for Samardzija swap.

He’d have to get an awful lot for the 33rd pick.    I doubt he trades it, but I guess you can’t rule it out.  

He's done it before and for less than what I would call "an awful lot".

I don't think he trades it but that is mostly because they can't be traded in the offseason.

Yes, and please, Dan, do not trade that pick! 

From MLB website:

'" Unlike other Draft picks, Competitive Balance Draft picks can be traded. However, they can only be traded during the regular season and cannot be dealt simply in exchange for cash. Additionally, a Competitive Balance Draft pick can be traded only by the club to which it was awarded. In other words, the picks may be traded no more than once."

Could the trade be said to be for a player to be named later that then becomes the competitive balance pick when the season starts?

    • With a previous post in this thread I highlighted a selection of notable or memorable comps for our current Orioles. Now I wonder what it would look like to compare our best roster (from that selected list, in order of WAR) with the corresponding squad of not-all-stars.   Without further ado, here's our team alongside its historic counterparts: LF    Norby        Eugenio Suarez CF    Mullins        Kevin Kiermaier RF    Cowser        Ken Singleton 1B    Mayo        Bill Melton 2B    Holliday    Arky Vaughan SS    Ortiz        Jose Pagan 3B    Henderson    Bill Madlock C    Ruthschman    Ted Simmons DH    Westburg    Robby Thompson     Bench    Mateo        Greg Gagne     SP1    Bradish        Justin Verlander SP2    Kremer        Johnny Cueto SP3    Rodriguez    Jose Berrios SP4    Povich        Jarrod Washburn     SP5    Irvin        Scott McGregor RP1    Pham        Jeff Samardzija RP2    McDermott    Steve Renko RP3    Vespi        Graeme Lloyd RP4    Baker        Matt Albers Closer    Bautista    Trevor Hoffman Oddly enough, it's the starting rotation that appears the strength of our team of doppelgangers.
    • Regarding Cooper, he was a fantastic pitching coach for a long time, but the game simply passed him by.  Near the end of his tenure, after a tough season Giolito actually went and worked with Ethan Katz (our current pitching coach and his former HS pitching coach) and he came back new and improved.  Katz also got a ton of credit for developing Cease and getting Rodon to finally tap into his potential. A year ago I would have been high on Katz, but last year was such a disaster that I’m not sure what to think.  It’s clear he’s got a much more modern take on pitching than Cooper, but I also think the org in general is so behind the times when it comes analytics & biometrics that there is only so much he can do.  We don’t have a single voice driving an org wide pitching philosophy (which is evident in our PD system) or much of a pitching lab to get the most out of guys.  Hopefully that will change for the better with the addition of Brian Bannister. All that being said, I don’t believe for a second we get all we can out of our guys.  Katz obviously helped Giolito, Cease, & Rodon improve but these were all elite prospects acquired from other orgs.  We still struggle to unlock the next tier of guys, although I blame that on broader organizational issues than purely Katz.
    • I love this.  Most fans that go to the game live within 45 minutes of the ballpark I would suspect.  The good thing is you can get home by 10:00 most evenings.  
    • I selfishly don't like it, I'm a displaced fan in the central time zone.  5:30 weeknight start times are rough for me, the games are usually over before I get home from the office.  But they should make decisions based on the people who might actually go to the games. 
    • That's something that can only be determined in hindsight.  Lots of options and lots of flexibility this offseason to really set the team up for the next 2-3 years.  I'm very curious to see how it plays out.  Checking my crystal ball, I don't see Aroldis Chapman anywhere on the program
    • I agree and I don't want him on the team.  But I'm not sure this specific moment is more critical than say, when he picked Gunnar Henderson in the second round.
    • Perhaps he looked and doesn’t have the dough to spend or wants to part with the asking price for Cease or 1 year of the other guys rumored available.
