Guys, I realize there is a thread for this so maybe it will be combined but The Fan 105.7 is reporting that the O's have offered Tex a 9 year 20 mil per contract. Apparently the Nats have countered that offer with a 10 year 20 mil per offer and the Angels are saying they can't afford that type of offer.

If we lose Tex to the Nats I am going to puke!!!!!

I don't know what to say, I really did not think we would offer him 20 million a year, I guess I was wrong.

I am going to puke if we spend that much money for that many years on any player. Please let the Nats beat us in the race to shoot ourselves in the foot! :pray:

I am pretty sure at this point everyone is taking from that same LA Times report. According to our insiders the O's really plan to make that offer, however, did the Nats really make the 10-year offer? I guess only time will tell! Even if the Nats did make that offer, I really hope Tex ends up choosing his hometown team!

If that offer is true, I am at least glad we made a legit shot at getting him. I know it goes against what alot of people here believe, but I think it would be an epic failure to not get the position player we have needed and wanted for years. Go get him Pete!!!!!

And I agree that there is no chance Pete loses this race to the Nats. Angels or Red Sox, sure, but no chance to the Nats.

That's pretty much exactly what the LA Times said...I don't think we should get too high or low about this...It is unclear if it has been offered or if they are speculating what the teams are willing to offer.

Not true. It's very clear. The LA Times Blog states:

"According to a source from a team that is involved in negotiations, the Washington Nationals and Baltimore Orioles "are coming in hot" on Teixeira, with the Nationals said to be willing to offer the slugger a 10-year deal for more than $20 million a year and the Orioles possibly willing to go nine years for at least $20 million a year. The source was not authorized to speak on the record about the situation and required anonymity."

"Willing" and "possibly willing" does not mean we have offered. I wonder if the LA Times Blog reported "the Orioles are out of the Teixeira bidding" if so many people would be "willing" to take it as fact and not speculation?

I'm no JTrea, but I have to believe that one year is not enough to pull Tex away from Baltimore and towards Washington.

Maybe it's the homer in me, but I've always believed that if he comes here it'd be about more than being close to family and money... he grew up an O's fan, he says he always checks the scoreboards during games to see how we're doing, and I have to imagine that when he was a kid dreaming of the bigs, he saw himself playing in an O's jersey.

It IS worth something.

    • Denyi Reyes signs with the Mets on a minor league deal.     https://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2022/11/mets-sign-denyi-reyes-to-minor-league-deal.html
    • Thought this would be a good place to post Orioles related stuff.
    • Worley has been elevated to the roster in front of this game. I think a decision will need to be made after this game as I think that he used up the exemption 
    • You guys that are worrying about blocking guys crack me up. If you aren’t adding in free agency you aren’t trying to win now. Besides the Os don’t have 7 allstar ballplayers coming up in the next 2 or 3 year.
    • Going from Mullins to Kiermaier is a downgrade and there is no proof that Cowser has anywhere close to the range of Mullins.   Better to keep Mullins and sign a FA starter. Stowers and Cowser will push Santander and Hays for playing time  in the near future but not quite yet.    I like the depth they provide.   Did you see how injuries hit Tampa last year?
    • Yes, they can.  But could they improve more by downgrading somewhat in CF to get a pitcher who’s a better option than anyone available on the FA market, age, health, ability and cost all considered?   That’s the question.   I’m not saying the answer is clear, but that is what Elias & co. need to consider.   And it depends on what Mullins would bring back and what the alternatives are in CF.   Trade Mullins straight up for Lopez and sign Kiermaier until Cowser is ready?   I am not crazy about that one.  But there could be some similar scenario that works.  
    • There are many ways to improve.  In my opinion starting pitching is our greatest weakness.  If we can trade from our strengths, position players, to enhance our pitching staff, then do it if the right deal came along.  I'd be willing to part with about any position player on our mlb roster other than Adley and Gunnar.  If Mullins is our most valuable trade piece on the roster, then trade him for pitching.  I feel we have enough young talent coming up to replace his production in the lineup. Let's be clear, I'm not advocating a firesale or anything goofy. But with Westburg, Ortiz, Stowers, Cowser, etc all possibly seeing MLB time this year and hopefully outperforming who they replace in the lineup, and a full year of Gunnar and Adley, I expect the runs scored to increase even if we don't add bats from free agency.  But it's the arms that worry me as Grod only 1 starter and will be limited on pitches.  I'm ok with trading a position starter if we can get a worthwhile pitcher, and Mullins may be the best chip to play.   And given that I'm down on him repeating a 3.8 WAR season or better in 2023, he'd be at the top of my list.  We will get more for him than we would for a Hays, Mateo or Urias.
