Like I said, the first player I'd ask for would likely be Guthrie. And for a guy like Gamel the Orioles shouldn't have a problem dealing him.

But it doesn't neccessarily have to be a stud 1B prospect. There are good 1B prospects out there that are blocked like Joe Koshansky or Nick Evans that are available.

Those could possibly be acquired by dealing Luke Scott for example. The Mets could use Scott right now more than they could use Evans...

Is Joe Koshansky the long term answer for this team at 1B???

So if you didn;t have to trade the player you wouldn't accept David Hernandez is trade???

Depends on the player. If I couldn't get Tillman or Arrieta; however, I could get Reimold and Britton/Erbe... well, that might be okay.

Like I said though, it depends on the player.

Do you have any idea what 1B prospects we've inquired about?

And that is completely stupid based on the lack of depth in our system. Do we expect to keep signing Millar types until we can draft a solution? Or are we looking at biding time until Pujols is available? :rolleyestf:

We've got the resources to deal for a LT 1B solution and it's something we desperately need. I hope they aren't looking at Rowell or Snyder as the LT solution there...

I think Looper is going to get three years. Whose left? I hope not Hendrickson? How about Kawakami?

I think they're going to have to trade for pitching.

Why would we trade for pitching when we can just sign somebody?

Trading for a stopgap pitcher is just idiotic...

    • Agreed.  As it stands now, we've heard that they want Gunnar to get some starts at SS.  So, I think Mateo'll start the season as the SS starter for most games.  It won't be 100% as Hyder plays the numbers between Mateo/Urias/Frazier.  And Westburg if he's on the team.   Only Mateo's bat can change that narrative. He definitely has value at the MLB level for teams that are thin up the middle and have hitters elsewhere.  But for the O's, I think the team is best served with him as a pinch runner/defensive replacement.  
    • For a second I thought I had to defend Roll Tide. Kyle Virbitsky has a 4.49 ERA in the minors.  I think Tide saw his 5.06 RA9.
    • I don't think picking up a below average pitcher is something that can be called a strong move. It's a move. 
    • Off the top of my head I'd say Hernaiz is roughly equivalent in value to a late second round pick at this point.  I certainly wouldn't expect a late second round pick to end up being more than Hernaiz is. I have a question for you.  More value....Irvin or a free agent pitcher that received a Qualifying Offer?
    • Rojas is a similar player but how is a the "perfect comp" when he's a FA in 2024 and Mateo isn't a FA until 2026?    Also, Mateo had a 3.4 RWAR compared to 2.5 for Rojas.    Is the player the Marlins got from the Dodgers in his FA year, a decent prospect? Ranked Los Angeles Dodgers #10 prospect in-season in 2022 BA Grade: 50/High Track Record: Amaya grew up in suburban Los Angeles and is the grandson of former Brooklyn Dodgers prospect Frank Amaya. The Dodgers kept the connection going when they drafted the younger Amaya in the 11th round in 2017 and signed him for an above-slot $247,500. Amaya quickly established himself as the best defensive shortstop in the Dodgers system, but longstanding questions about his bat only increased after he hit .216/.303/.343 at Double-A Tulsa in 2021. Scouting Report: Amaya is a gifted defensive shortstop with elite instincts for the position. He is always in the right place, secures every ball with his soft, reliable hands and makes every throw with his plus, accurate arm. He's not the rangiest or flashiest defender, but he makes every play and is elite at nuances such as tags and relays. Amaya's bat is further behind. He previously demonstrated elite-strike zone discipline but tried to hit for power in 2021 and started chasing and overswinging. He's an undersized hitter who is best when he drives singles the other way with a short, direct stroke. The Future: Amaya's defense gives him a chance to stick as a utilityman. He'll try to make the necessary offensive adjustments in 2022. Scouting Grades: Hitting: 50. Power: 40. Speed: 50. Fielding: 60. Arm: 60.   So the Marlins got the #10 prospect in a very good system for one year of Miguel Rojas but Jorge Mateo who is younger with 3 years of service time and just had a better overall season than Rojas has every had, can't get back a significant prospect?    Really?
