If we can get anything worth having, move Cashner and Givens.Cashner is FA next year and Givens in 2022.So move Cashner at Deadline-Givens too if we can get something. Send both as a package to increase return?

Mancini-FA in 3 years, W/we be a contender then? Plus, he's limited and so is Mountcastle who's being groomed for first base.Think about it if we're offered a lot over the winter or next yr.You're selling high now.

Villar-nice LH bat which we don't have much of-now or projected.But we have some good-hitting infielders who may be a year or less away You'd be selling high now- mite to move him at Deadline if offered enough.Free agent in 2021.

I'd listen. I'd have to hear some serious shit to let Mancini go.


Ninety-nine percent of everything you(Trump) say is either false, crazy, incoherent, just plain cruel, or a rancid paella of all four.

O's are developing other trade chips too.Lot of pitching in low minors who could be useful pieces of trades as long as they're using them to acquire sizable nuggets and not faded veterans.We're also developing a preponderance of hitters who are limited afield, and something may have to be done there.

Mancini and Nunez at ML level; Stewart (possibly) and Mountcastle at AAA.And we're stuck w/Davis.

However, O's can make worthwhile trades using some of this.

I don't think Cashner has a lot of trade value. I thiink Givens probably does. Most contenders are looking for bullpen help. Villar would net something, maybe not great, but worthwhile.

If you'd like to kick around some permutations, MLB Trade Rumors is having a chat tonight.


Progressives lack compassion and tolerance. Their self-aggrandizement is all that matters.

I think the O's have to explore multiple players in a more complex deal, possibly w/TWO other teams.Not trade this guy here and that guy there for peanuts.

BTW, Broxton is a toolsy guy w/ a lot of potential who plays CF, has great power, little plate discipline and strikes out a lot. Familiar? But the Orioles are a team that can give him a chance. Why not?

I think we just picked up another Chris Davis. The bad Chris Davis, not the good one.

Chances are you're right. But we had nothing to lose in trying when we're 15-35. The guy is supposedly talented. Rickard's useless.This guy easily replaces him in center, and how much worse can he be at bat?

Broxton is a low average/obp guy like Rickard. He'll hit for more power, play better defense, especially in cf, than Rickard. I'm guessing they want him in cf to help the pitching staff. Wilkerson will probably be used as a utility guy in the infield and outfield when necessary.
