Dominos beginning to fall in trade market

In the last hour or so, the Mariners and Pirates and now the Phils and Indians have completed 6 - 7 player trades.

Hopefully these two deals, both of which have taken a bunch of players off the table that were being considered by a number of teams, will get other teams off the fence and making moves of their own.

I don't know about anyone else, but if the trade deadline passes and AM doesn't do anything I'll be very disappointed.

Same here...At this point, Sherrill almost has to be traded unless AM is asking for way too much.

I'd love to see the O's move Sherrill and Scott for major league ready 1b and 3b. Then we throw Pie in LF and put Reimold at DH and watch the future play for the last two months of the season.

I'd be all over that.

I am usually as big of a AM defender as anyone, but I have to agree with this. The market is there for Sherill and he needs to be moved in order to make this team better long term. At this point I would be very disappointed if we made no moves and would probably need a day or two away to digest that nothing happened.

Well Taylor didn't go in the Lee deal, he is still out there. And Bell, Wood, still out there. For the Sherrill deal to get done Andy is going to have to bring back a corner IF prospect similar to, if not, one of those 3 mentioned.

If teams aren't offering them then Andy is doing the right thing. But we don't really know all I know is that if Sherrill is moved I want my long term 3B coming back in the deal!

So, the Phillies kept Taylor and still have the need for a reliever.

Bell and Wood appear to be guys the Orioles are targeting.

Going to be interesting to see how this plays out.

I really would prefer Wood (no jokes everyone :P ) +1 over Bell +1.

What if he can't move him and make the team better long term? Would you rather just trade GS anyway because you think he is at his highest value to the O's? Would you accept a DeWitt, Elbert deal rather than not deal him? Bell even up?

A CI prospect would be great... but getting back the best possible package, regardless of position, should be the goal.

    • I guess we were watching a different outing. 
    • You try to sign long term Gunnar and GR.  Wait and see on the others. As for Adley?   I would not sign him to a long term contract.  I hate to say it because I love the guy but he just does not seem worth what he is going to ask for imo.
    • I am not worried about Means AS LONG AS HE IS HEALTHY.   Big if.  But he knows what he is doing getting ready for what him is his spring training.  If he does this his first 2 starts or so?    Then I worry.
    • I had never seen him in a live at bat until I saw him at his first spring training at bat this year.  And I mean his very first at bat.   He struck out swinging on like 4 pitches and being honest looked completely over matched.  I remember thinking....."hmmmm that seems odd for a guy so highly touted".   He just seemed like he had no idea what he was doing.   But then I never really saw another live at bat from him again all spring training and he ended up doing pretty well.  However every at bat I have seen of him since he got called up?  Looked like that first spring training at bat.  He looks like my wife trying to hit a major league fastball.  He has no idea what he is doing. I have never seen someone so good against minor league players and yet so bad against major league players.  Just a huge discrepancy.   Has to be psychological.   He looks completely intimidated. 
    • And who is this somebody other than Means or Flarerty that would help us in the playoffs. Also remember Bradish and Grod did not help us in the Playoffs. So I guess It was unwise to wait on those 2. Plus Bradish is hurt and uncertain going foward( a la Means) Yeah you piled on.
    • I will say I am surprised at how utterly useless/helpless JH looks after he got called up.   Not just surprised. Stunned is a better word. This is not an 7th round pick who struggled for years in the minors.   This is the #1 pick from 2 years ago who has dominated his entire life in the game of baseball. Yet he looks like a player in 8th grade playing against seniors in HS.  He can barely make any contact and even his fielding and throwing is very iffy. It is like he took up the game of baseball within the last year.   A complete novice.   This has to be mental because even the worst of the worst can make more contact than he is.  He is FLAILING.   No way that is all physical.    At this point you send him down.   No questions asked.   I was more than willing to let him get through this if he SHOWED ANY SIGNS of life.  But he just doesn't.   He looks pathetic.    Manny Machado he is not.   Send him down for at least 3 months.   Bring up Mayo.  Or anyone really.  It is better than what he is offering.
