I have seen him pitch multiple times...besides tonight, how many times have you seen him?

Just tonite but I was also listening to both Palmer and Thorne raving about him and his impressive record at such a young age. Pretty incredible really.

Can't believe the people who say they wouldn't trade Matusz for Cahill straight up. Cahill is already what you hope Matusz becomes and he's either the same age or a year younger.

Spot on Sir! I absolutely concur. I have no idea what they are seeing but I see greatness in this Cahill kid already.:eek:

What? His strikeout numbers are appalling. There's no way he keeps this up.

No, you said Matusz AND Tillman or Arrieta.

Right. The deal would be Matusz and one of either Tillman or Arrieta. A two for one deal with Matusz one of the two.

I also would entertain trading Matusz and one of either Tillman or Arrieta and Wieters for Cahill and Suzuki.

I think Matusz has value in that he's left-handed and has tremendous poise. Cahill has 44 games experiece while Matusz has 24.

Sorry. Yes, I would trade Tillman and one of those two guys for Cahill. I would trade Matusz and Tillman for Cahill. I actually like Arrieta the best of the Orioles pitchers I've seen so far.

I would also trade Matusz, Wieters and one of either Tillman or Arrieta for Cahill and Suzuki but doubt the A's would go for it.

Let's look at some stats, shall we?:

1) Cahill is 22 and Matusz is 23.

2) Cahill has 44 ML starts and Matusz has 24.

3) For his career, Cahill averages 5.04 k/9 IP...Matusz averages 7.03 K/9 IP.

4) Cahill's career K/BB ratio is 1.48...Matusz'ss K/BB is 2.40.

5) They both average 5.7 IP per start thus far.

6) Cahill gets to pitch in Oakland, where his ERA at home is much better than on the road.

7) Cahill's GB ratio is 1.01...Matusz's is .54.

8 ) Cahill's HR rate is 1.24...Matusz's rate is 1.10

9) Cahill throws 60% of his pitches for strikes(below league average)...Matusz throws 65% of his pitches for strikes..well above league average.

10) Cahill throws 3.89 P/PA...Matusz throws 3.81 P/PA.

11) Cahill has a 14% swinging strike %...Matusz has a 16%...League average is 15%.

12) Cahill throws 55% first strikes...Matusz throws 61% first strikes.

So, thus far in their careers, where Cahill is younger but has more experience, Matusz beats him in every category except GB rate.

I don't know why you folks interact with this guy. He states these ridiculous opinions over and over again based on almost no evidence at all. Luke Scott anyone? Chris Tillman anyone? I could keep going for a long time. When one is proven false as more evidence comes in, he just goes to the next opinion. It is all in order to feel involved and popular. That other thread is 12 pages and 9 of them are folks screaming in vain at him about an issue they know he'll never even remotely acknowledge. I just don't get the allure. It would be one thing if he had the occasional nugget of gold to offer, but nothing he says is particularly inciteful and most of it is downright ludicrous. Again, I just don't get it.

So what is your opinion on trading for Cahill by offering Matusz and one of either Tillman or Arietta? :scratchchinhmm:

Also what is your opinion on the same deal only adding in Wieters for Suzuki?:scratchchinhmm:

These are questions I would ask anyone at a bar so why do you wish to belittle me so much for asking them here? :confused:This isn't like writing for a newspaper. You take this site way, way too seriously.:(

Would you throw in Wieters for Kurt Suzuki?

Instead of cherry picking stats what about ERA, Wins, and WHIP?:confused: I don't think Matusz is very good in the first too at all. In fact, he's terrible.:(

    • I’m a little surprised Tony is in the field today, looked dinged up towards the end of the game yesterday getting up slowly from both his slide into second and his diving catch. 
    • I'm not opposed to trading Kjerstad (assuming Santander is then re-signed), but trading him for a reliever of any stripe seems like a waste of resources. There should be more economical ways of building a strong bullpen, and Kjerstad is a big enough talent to be the centerpiece in a trade for a cost-controlled starter. That seems like the more impactful move to me. 
    • Sure service time factors in. But it also seems to me you and a few others like you, think the grass is always greener on the other side based on the constant overrating of other team's players, but totally act like our own prospects are worth pennies. The Orioles don't have the best farm system in MLB if all their prospects are all low rank and low value. I do agree with Moose's comment about the fetishization of some prospects around here, but then there's the other extreme of that with some of these ridiculous trade offers of giving away the farm for a brown paper bag. You're not giving what's really possible enough of an opportunity or enough thought.
    • You're right, context does matter. I get it, we love our prospects but some of them are going to have to be traded.  Trading Ortiz and Hall didn't hurt much because of 1.  the return and 2. they weren't, like, a member of the inner circle of prospects we've grown to fawn over on here. IMO, that group is Holliday, Cowser (although I'm gonna remind everyone here once again that a lot of you were ready to part with him this past offseason) Kjerstad, Basallo and Mayo.  IMO, Hall had enough time for the shine to wash off him and while he had his defenders here, Ortiz was a guy that would have a hard time finding a full time spot.  Those two guys were on the outside looking in...didn't know if Hall was a starter or a reliever and Ortiz wasn't Jackson Holliday or Jordan Westburg. People on here like fantasizing about filling out lineups 1-9 of completely home grown talent, first round picks that'll all pan out, that'll all be great players...and it's just not going to work out that way.  It's coming close, but not all of these guys are going to be studs, not all of these guys are going to be as great as we seem to think they'll be.   So, yeah, I'd be open to trading Kjerstad for an elite, cost controlled bullpen arm because we'd be dealing from a position of strength in order to address a big need.   
    • Not actually expecting it but would be a very baseball thing to happen.
    • Yeah I agree with your thought process on position players vs pitchers. But that’s also why the young cheap guys like Skenes are worth so much. Yeah, he may break, but he’s cheap and you don’t have to give him a ton of money like you would for a free agent pitcher. With our current situation, I’d definitely do Holliday for Skenes straight up. It’s very likely Holliday provides more value during their controlled years, but he’s more easily replaced. If we’re lucky and Skenes and Grayson can have a few healthy years together, I think that gives us a better chance at a world series than 6 healthy years of Holliday.
