My souvenir from the win in Seattle
Newlyweds in Safeco part 2! Our view of kersh
Double Dodger dose. Reading and watching.
Heyman typos kill me but yes, bb , Baltimore to LA in the thick of a divisional race and only have to face one of the Red Sox, Astros, Yankees if we win the pennant is a different good.
Is it normal for a player to be completely out of the loop on how his own trade talks are going? I would expect if a deal was being finalized then Machado would have been informed. So he's either playing it safe and not confirming anything because the deal isn't there yet, or he legitimately has no idea about what his agent has decided for him.
I'm not sure which of these two scenarios in more probable.
Unless he has any kind of NTC, which I don't think he does, it's not up to his agent at all. He's totally at the mercy of the Orioles' front office.
No but like, you would think if the Os are going to trade him and have a deal all but final then they would inform him or his agent. It seems odd that they wouldn't let machado know, or at least tell his agent to let him know.
Perhaps the O’s haven’t told him or his agent yet because they’re ironing out details and want to make sure it’s gonna happen for sure before telling him.
Why? If you're delaying finalizing the trade so that Machado plays the ASG as an Oriole, then any team can come in and offer a sweeter package overnight. Makes no sense to finalize if teams still look like they might bite the bullet and come in higher.
This is like the "Going once, going twice!" phase of an auction. Someone can still raise their hand.
It's not finalizing it, it's just giving your players a "hey heads up, looks like you're probably heading to LA." The deal can still change last minute, but I would think the players would want to know about things like that.
If I were a player I would want to know what my future holds for me, if a deal is almost done a little warning before officially finalizing the deal would be nice.
Letting him know might be the nice thing to do. But this stuff moves so fast, can still change, there’s medicals that need to be done, etc. Darvish last year is a great example. That deal happened in what, 15 minutes?
The worst thing would be to goto a guy and tell him he’s going somewhere then have the deal fall through. Also, this is part of the game. Teams want to know what other teams are offering. They want to collect intel. Giving manny information introduces a variable that they might not be comfortable with lest he accidentally clue the media. Dodgers find out other teams offers are significantly worse? Maybe they have second thoughts. Total conjecture here, but if I were a GM I’d probably do the same thing.
You think the way the O's have been run they would have their shit together on this trade?
From years of following trade rumors, yea this is pretty standard. Trade is probably not official until after the ASG (likely at MLBs insistence). No need to tell him until it’s official, especially if there are complexities such as this.
PS manny or his agent really have no say without a no-trade clause. That’s likely the only scenario where a team would consult with a player about a trade before it going through.
Anyone have any current guesses of what this trade package is going to look like?
Yusniel Diaz, Logan Forsythe and I would assume a pitching prospect. I was really hoping we could get Britton too but I doubt that’s gonna happen.
Britton $12m/yr makes me wonder how the FO would convince the Orioles to eat money
If Machado's and Forsythe's salaries are covered Dodgers are giving up at least two more blue chips. Fucking Forsythe costs us yet more.
They can have anyone but Verdugo(prospect wise) if it means I never to watch another Logan Forsythe at bad in a Dodger uniform.
Right? I don't get how anyone defends his trash performance this year after 3 straight years of declining.
Then you shouldn't want the Dodgers to give up Lux
Can someone explain to me how the salary exchange thing works with trades? Like If we traded for Machado would his whole 16 million dollar contract count against our Luxury tax threshold or just however much he's still owed for the year? And If so I guess that's why Forsythe would be included in the deal? To keep the team under the Luxury?
However much is left is what counts against the team that takes on the player. Offloading Logan will help us stay under the tax and have more flexibility if we’re to make more moves.
Got it, thanks. So we'd be taking approximately 8 million or so of what's left of manny's contract and unloading 4 million or however much is left of Logan's contract?
Well, he's gonna be a rental i guess
I want to buy it but I’ve never trusted John or Bob. So idk
