Roch: Would you?

I'm not insinuating that the two teams are having discussions. It's complete fiction. I'm just wondering whether you'd do it.

Jake Arrieta, Zach Britton and Brandon Waring to the Marlins for Josh Johnson.

This is an interesting idea, but I don't think it's enough on the O's side.

Now imagine if we could put together a package for Johnson and Hanley Ramirez...

Now that would be a gamble.

Yes, I am in.

EDIT: Before I go to far...how many years is Johnson under control for? I'd like an extension with it.

Here's one that I might actually consider doing...Josh Johnson posts a near 3 ERA almost every year and is still relatively young. I don't know if I would call him an "Ace" but he'd be our number 1 for sure and a good addition in front of Matusz, Tillman, BB, Guthrie/Hernandez

I would call him an ace.

The bigger question is how his stuff transfer to the AL East. but he is certainly an ace in his current team/league

No.

Remember that Johnson is pitching in the cavernous Marlin ballpark. I would prefer to spend 15MM or so a year on Lackey, getting the same performance, than giving up on two of our top prospects and another guy who just may breakout next year.

It is a move a team makes if they are a guy away from the playoffs. It is not a move a team makes if they are several pieces and a year or several away.

This.

I definitely wouldn't make this move.

    • I would offer 4 years for $75-80 million. Trade for Lopez and the rotation would be more than set. 
    • Distinctly remember having a debate with @DrungoHazewoodseveral years ago about McGriff’s candidacy. I wonder if he’s changed his tune. 
    • It's only 2 pages if you take out duplicate posts and unrelated to Gibson posts. It is decibel going to be a long offseason.  Haha
    • He's currently #12. If he collects the entire contract, he will be in the top 2-3. Verlander likely still beats him with this next contract, but I agree it's still close. My point is that ToR starters are wickedly expensive and if Grayson becomes one, as many have postulated he might, having him early in his career when he is cost contained and thoughtfully dispositioning him when he becomes expensive will have an enormous impact on the finances of the ball club. I think mores than Adley and Gunnar but I could be very wrong. 
    • I’m willing to wait and be patient until the end of the offseason. What choice do any of us really have? But if the Orioles plan is to “nickel and dime” Free Agents, go bargain bin shopping, rely on prospect growth, and convince fans they are still in a rebuild with a “limited budget”; I think this will tell me all I need to know. The first name may have changed with ownership, but the last name is still the same. If we don’t spend big now with this minuscule payroll when will we ever? If arb is going to be used as a reason to not spend on Free Agency will it get better when our younger players get more expensive through raises? My greatest hope is that the Orioles actually care about their fans and MORE IMPORTANTLY about winning a championship. I know to each his/her own, but I will never be able to get behind billions budgeting and pinching pennies to make more millions.
    • It’s a huge problem in our society today that if something gets said three times on Twitter, people will take it for a fact.  Let’s just wait until we have an authoritative report.   
    • Reveal show had detail it was in-person meeting today (so Kim Ng couldn't be working on her Orioles trades).    Chipper had a travel-cancelling illness, and was replaced by some old Diamondbacks exec the current HOF president could get on short notice. Congrats Crime Dog.    I either forgot or never knew the detail from Harold Reynolds after the announcement it was Kirby Puckett who bestowed the nickname on a Japan tour.
