MLB.com: Asking price for Santander is “insane”

What they ask for now is irrelevant.  As the article says, you always hear teams are asking for a lot this time of year (which is always dumb to me but whatever).

If a team is good with Mancini in the OF, that is huge for us.  Wonder if the Os put him out there at all over the next 6ish weeks?

I feel its a basic truth of the trade deadline that anything that completes this far in advance probably is a good outcome for the seller.

On July 30/31 you may get a snapshot of the true market value of Jonathan Schoop. Kevin Gausman minus Darren O'Day, etc.   

I suppose perfect storms like Machado on the 2018 Orioles where Duquette has like, gasp, four things to do in two weeks can give some cromulent finishes earlier in July.

He’s under our control for more than 3.5 years to come. Unless he goes on a tear and someone is willing to make us a great offer I doubt we deal him this year. I wouldn’t be shocked if the guys we move are Galvis and/or Fry. Depends how desperate other teams get at the deadline.

Yea, it’s pretty poor to think they could get that, at least right now.

And it’s equally bad to say if they don’t get that, that they should keep him.

Agree I don’t think there’s any reality in which they get.
