    PTBNL trades must be completed within 6 months of the remainder of the trade so even that prevents Gausman from being in a trade at this time.

    They would have to wait until mid-March in order to include Gausman as a PTBNL.

    Because he has better command, throws just as hard, and already has a great feel for his change.

    There's a reason he went in the top 4, and was in the discussion at #1 overall, and Meyer was a late first round guy. The later guys generally have more warts, and the guys that go at the very top are usually more polished.

    And I'd guess they passed because they had Buxton higher on their board. Best player available is the only way to go when you're picking at the top of the draft.
    I am going to to have to disagree with you. In all do respect, Meyer and Gausman are about the same as far as prospects go. You can't take into account where a guy was drafted. Had Meyer been in this years draft, he would have been up there with the Gausmans and Appels. That is like saying Berrios is not in the same league as Wimmers because he was drafted much later. For one, Meyers fell because he was a Boras guy. But mainly, Meyers was taken in possibly the deepest draft since the first draft in 1965 (wikipedia.com). On the flipside, last years draft was historically shallow. I would argue that Meyers and Gausman will be similarly ranked in all national prospect lists and Meyer has a leg up as he has pitched a full season already. I say this with all do respect to Frodaddy G Bones.

    I like it how you try to make an argument using all the wrong stuff while ignoring the stuff that matters. The wrong stuff = strength of draft and Boras. The stuff that matters = better command and better change.

    If you're dumping salary then you usually don't get talent back. I'm hoping that Baltimore would overvalue Morneau enough that they would trade either of these players with the Twins picking up 4+M of the contract. I like Arrieta more though.
