Beddard is a great pitcher, but, He's only had 1 complete game in his career, He has never one 20 and don't forget, He's a FA in two years. I'm sure his agent will strongly advise him NOT to sign an extension( I would). Why sign now when your value will just increase? As far as a "Hometown Discount", remember He's from Canada. He gives the impression he really doesn't want to be here. There is no reason NOT to trade him now. A player that a team will control for 2 years is more valuable than a 1 year rental.

Cabrera for

Dodgers- Loney, Kemp, Kershaw( any 2)

DBacks- Jackson & Quenton

Mets- Pelfrey, Milliedge, and or Gomez

RedSox- Bucholz & Gabbard

Braves- Saltalammachia and Escobar

No no no no no, I love this guy. I doubt we will get a player of impact back for him. W/o an impact pitcher and batter in return it shouldnt be considered

Are you kidding me???? I really like Bedard too, but you really don't think we could get one impact player back in return for him?? IMO, if we made him available he would instantly become the hottest trade target in MLB for any team in contention. Now, that means that a contender would not be thrilled about giving up many players in their present lineup. But I would say Bedard could get you at least two of a contenders top prospects and another 5-10 prospect, +. i.e, Gomez, Milledge, Humber and Pelfrey from the Mets. How does that sound? I think the O's need to listen to what Bedard could net them before the trade dealine. I hope the O's are listening to offers for everybody.

Those are some really nice packages. I doubt any of them will come to fruition, but then again, you never know...

There is so much wrong with this post that the only thing I feel like pointing out is we would never ever ever ever get any of those trades.

Why Does Everyone Overrate Daniel Cabrera!?!?

Omg Im Gonna Lose It!!!!

I think it was a typo.. I think he was referring to Bedard for all those trade ideas.. considering he was writing about Bedard in the entire first part of his post and never mentioned Cabrera.

Give me a break. What's wrong with those proposals?

You, my friend, have the Mike Flanagan/Jim Beattie/Jim Duquette mindset.

It never hurts to ask. If you don't ask, then you're stuck with the same cast of losers we're always stuck with.

The guy is dead-on. These are the kinds of deals we should be exploring.

Shapiro got a boatload from Minaya in the Colon deal. Think Minaya wouldn't pull the trigger knowing that Bedard could net him a WS this year and possibly next as well?

I wouldn't trade him for any of those packages.

I don't think people realize just how valuable Bedard would be on the trade market...3 players is the cost, not 2.

I'd say at least 3. Three stud prospects and a low level minor leaguer with huge upside is where my negotiating would start.

If a playoff bound team wants him bad enough, they can pony up.

And to replace Bedard I'd want to make sure two of those prospects are starting arms.

    • In his career, Judge has homered against us 35 times in 84 games (79 starts).   That’s more than .4 homers per game.   So yes, I’d say the odds favor him hitting one against us this weekend. I just want to beat the Yankees.   Anything that happens in an Orioles win is okay with me.   
    • Let the man hit.  Judge is a decent guy and the major league record is 73.  I don't consider Bonds' record a "real" record because of all the steroids he was on, but it's still the record.  Not sure what the insane level of hate for Judge is about.  I have no problem hating Yankees who are d-bags, but hate of random Yankee and hate of players like Roberts who went to the Yankees because no one else wanted him are over the edge. I think what I really hate are Yankee fans.
    • Is it really a big problem?    Walking guys is only rarely a good strategy.  
    • Some of this year’s struggles with LHP strike me as one of those fluky things that happen in baseball.   Here are some 2021/2022 numbers vs. LHP: Mountcastle .842/.713 Hays .897/.701 Mullins .788/.573 Now Mullins, in his switch hitting days, was weak vs. LHP.   When he switched to hitting from the left side exclusively, he hit them much better last year, but my impression is he did most of his damage in the first half of the season.  So, it may be that LHP have figured out how to attack him and his 2022 numbers are more predictive of the future than 2021.    Mountcastle and Hays, on the other hand, are capable of doing much better than they did this year vs. LHP. Rutschman has a .568 OPS vs. LHP and I feel that’s fluky as well.   He had good splits against LHP in the minors and in college.  My guess is he’ll work on his RH stroke in the offseason and do much better next year.  (Honestly, he doesn’t have much else to work on.) The way OPACY is set up now, it favors LHB and thus LHP figure to do well there.   We’re still facing RHP 70% of the time, so I don’t think we want to load up on RHB and put us at a disadvantage in our own ballpark just to address a problem that exists 30% of the time and may be a one-year anomaly.       
    • Oh he’s going to hit it against us. I just hope it’s off a pitcher that isn’t with us for the long term. Like Lyles, or one of our up/down relievers.    But I want to see our pitchers go at him. We’re about building respect in our franchise back, and building confidence for next year.    Hyde is class, and it’s time we got back to that completely. 
    • Funny thing … Mantle hit 500th and for the Os, the mighty Mark Belanger hit a HR lol … his only one in 1967 and one of 20 career over 18 seasons 
    • Oh we have a history of being part of Yankee lore … Cal breaking Lou’s record, and Stu Miller giving up Mickey’s 500th (when 500 meant something) .. The Yankees were spawned from the 1890s Oriole franchise moved by the fledgling AL to NY as the Highlanders for a season then Yankees pitch to the MFY and strike his butt out four times !!  http://mickeymantle.com/500th-home-run/
