  1. I think it's probably worth bearing in mind that even if he doesn't win the 1b spot with NYY, it's not like he's going to be taken out back and shot. He and Voit both have minor league options and Bird specifically could walk into playing time if he were dealt.

  2. Eh, I disagree that it signals a change. They still have Adams, Loaisiga, and a bunch of younger guys too, all who could step up as early as next year. They traded one kind of risk for another I suppose, but from a position of strength. Paxton is the right kind of risk to take on for where they're at.

  3. Sanchez has opted to under go a left shoulder debridement. Apparently it's been bothering him for a couple years. Reports are that he will be ready for Opening Day, according to Cashman. I would speculate this rules out any of the trade rumors floating around. 


    Anecdotally I had a medial epicondyle debridement on my elbow several years ago. Mine was an open surgery (not arthroscopic). They basically detached the tendon, cleaned up the ragged edges and scar tissue, and reattached it to the bone. I imagine for Gary it will be arthroscopic but basically still just a cleanup op.

    I see some Manny Machado trade speculation being bandied about on Twitter. Doubtful he signs long-term after his 2018 season ( then a FA ). Think there is a legit chance the O's move him in next few days?? I


    I feel it's more of the crazy rumor or " false speculation" type thing brewing but curious to know if others think it's a realistic chance he gets moved sooner rather than later?? Or do you think he does in fact sign a new long-term contract?


    If they do trade him, maybe in off season?


    Thoughts on any of this?


    I think they ought to trade him, even if his value is not at its peak right now. As a Yankee fan it reminds me a lot of Robbie Cano's last year in New York. They should have traded him for a king's ransom, and instead he played a bunch of pretty meaningless games for them in the second half and then left for Seattle anyway. The O's have the pieces to really jump-start a rebuild, if they are bold enough to move them. Two words say they don't though, and they are "Peter Angelos"
