Orioles Interested In Samardzija

76 posts in this topic

No way I'm trading any one of Bundy, Gausman, or Harvey for a year and a half of Samardzija. 

 

But that's just me.

 

If we do, I am not going to be very happy at all.

I'd be surprised if they trade anyone on that list. I wouldn't be upset if they traded Gausman. not to suggest that I've given up on him, I haven't. but he's clearly not mlb ready. furthermore, I feel like the length of time it will take KG to become mlb ready, is longer than the O's window of opportunity with the current team.

 

I don't see Gausman really sticking with the O's until 2016. Cruz, Wieters, Hardy, Markakis & Davis are all flight risks by then.

1-4 with a 1.68 ERA

 

Poor guy, playing for the Cubs.

don't worry, that era will go up if he steps into the AL east. playing the bulk of your games in the NL central makes everyone look like a great pitcher. remember what happened to Garza when he left the friendly confines? he was beat around like a plaything when he joined the Rangers.

This team is going to be atrociously bad after 2015 when Wieters, Davis, and Hardy are gone, and there isn't any young pitching left because they traded it for guys who have inflated numbers because they play in the NL.

And can we acquire 4 other starting pitchers?

 

Our starters are horrible.

Why not? 

The O's need a top of the rotation starter and they don't have the money to spend on Free Agents like Max Scherzer

Because one starter isn't going to make this team a WS contender and after this year they're trading Davis Wieters and Samardzija (if they get him) anyway.

obviously not. did you happen to open the link and read what it said? it's because the O's have a healthy collection of quality pitching prospects that the Cubs are interested in dealing with them. and the article didn't mention Mike Wright. several GMs have been inquiring into his availability. if DD can build a contending O's team once, he can do it again. so even if the O's trade 2 pitchers from that list, they still have a few others.

This is such poor reasoning. If all those guys are going to leave then, as Rob says, the time is now.

After 31 years of rebuilding shouldn't the Orioles be just 1 player away?

 

They got lucky with Cruz this year, why waste it, when he could have PED injuries next year

What 'contending team' did Dan build for the Orioles? 1 playoff team 2 years ago? Shouldn't he be building on that team instead of recreating a new each year?

 

All that has happened is the Orioles have moved from a historically (15 straight losers) bad team to a mediocre, middle of the pack, nondescript team for a penny pinching owner.

Great, another mediocre pitcher.

 

Can they trade Cruz to a contender for prospects or can you not trade an FA the season you sign him?

Ah, thanks.

 

I suppose they'd probably rather wait and get the draft pick when he walks after the season.

is it out of the question that the O's would extend Samardzija?

With our poor history of pitching prospects, I'd have no problem with them trading some of them.

 

We thought Matusz was going to be a solid MLB starter. Didn't quite happen.

 

And don't mention Hobgood.

guilty as charged, but this is a new FO with a guy in charge who built a legendary farm system in Montreal. judging from what the baseball world has to say about the O's farm system, he's doing a really good job. they've come a long way since the days when the only people complimenting the O's, worked in the warehouse.

He's going to want 17-20 million a year, and someone will give it to him.

 

So yes.  Completely out of the question.

The Hobgoblin isn't even starting. Pitching out the pen now.
