OK, it's not really mets but it's kind of mets, as they're one of the sellers but not the only seller. For example, the team that doesn't get Machado might trade for Ascab (as a booby prize), unless a team needs two infielders.

if Mods want to move this to general MLB, but I think there's enough of an overlap to keep it here.

Giants did a salary dump and lost a prospect in the process. (ouch). Imagine how pissed we'd be if the mets did that.

O's are fielding numerous offers for Machado (no surprise there and they have to move him).

Market seems to be beginning to heat up. We'll see some movement soon, I'd guess about even money that things will get going this week.

Ehault says there is currently no interest in expiring contract Mesoraco.

Brewers front runners for Machado..
Yankees are linked in discussions for Moose..

He's a guy who could go post waiver deadline if a team has a need, but I don't think he'll fetch that much in return.

They could trade Mesoraco in a heartbeat.

You're just not going to turn the franchise around by doing it.

Machado is going to bring back a disappointing return. O's botched this up pretty bad.

No doubt. They are right up there with the Mets in terms of incompetence.

Are you saying that holding on to him this long and only trading him when his contract is about to expire was a bad move? hhhmmm I wonder what lesson could be learned from this.

This is what bad teams do. They waited to long and now teams get to play the "we are not giving you a good prospect for a two month rental card".

He's making what 9 mil?? (IDK, too lazy to check)

If they dump him and others for salary relief and another group of a-ball relievers and do nothing else, I don't know what I'll do :evil: :evil:

Yeah, and if you're using the "He's 19" logic, then I guess the best report a scout could give us is:


"I have no idea. He's a teenager. He may go through 5 arm surgeries between now and his 30th birthday. He may add a pitch. He may lose a pitch. He may put on 30 lbs and add velocity. He may put on 50 lbs and eat his way out of the league. I literally have no idea what he is going to be."

But thats not what these guys are paid to do, nor what we are looking for them to do, right?

They can't. After last years debacle the Wilpons know that it will be a public relations nightmare if they go that route again.

uh, they don't care about that. They are more interested in salary relief for a losing team that is dipping in attendance.

If? That's the only thing they ever do. It should be the expected M.O. until disproven.
