Twins send: Willingham, Morneau, $20m Orioles send: Dylan Bundy Willingham would be a huge upgrade in LF and Morneau could thrive against RHP in Yankee stadium and other ALE parks. I watched the O's game yesterday and saw a stat: O's are something like 47-5 when hitting 2+ HRs. O's are, purportedly, shopping for "high obp guys" but they have lived and died with the HR. Would this be enough, or too much, to get Bundy?

The O's would not go for it, Bundy is the Top Pitching prospect in the game right now. For Bundy they would want a Justin Upton or Giancarlo Stanton. Plus the O's should not be buying right now, at least not anything they have to give a real prospect up for. They have the second worst run differentail in the AL. Now if they were dumb enough to go for it I'll help Morneau and Willingham pack thier bags. A more realistic prosepct wold be Zack Lee of the Dodgers.

No chance. The O's are not dealing Bundy. I don't think there is a Twins' package that can net you bundy, outside trading their top 5 prospects and Span.... You have more chance to get Tallion from Pittsburgh, I think, if you are going to aim super high.

What I just typed is probably an opinion, not a fact. I mean, I'm usually right, so you should maybe assume it is or will be a fact soon, but that's up to you. :)

Yeah, I don't think the Orioles do it either, which is a little weird considering the Twins are sending their most tradeable asset AND 20 MILLION DOLLARS. But I don't think the Orioles would do it.

Based on what I hear, the Twins will not trade Willingham for Bundy straight up, they would want more. And the O's really have no use for Morneau. I think Liriano plus Span to the O's for something is a more likely package (allegedly the Os are on Liriano and per Olney they are looking for a good OBP guy)

Based on what you hear? Where? No way do the Orioles move Bundy and no way would the Twins not take Bundy back in a trade straight up for Willingham.

Yeah, that's extremely silly.

Yeah... JR would be tripping over himself to give both Willingham and Liriano for Bundy... or at least he should be.

Not to state the obvious, but TR should absolutely ask more than he can get for prospects, knowing full well he's going to ahve to compromise. If Bundy is on the table, I'd imagine that a deal would get done.

If Bundy were on the table, a deal would have already been done.

If anyone here was the GM of the Orioles, they would not for a second consider trading Bundy. The Orioles might make a lesser trade to make a push for the playoffs, which would be good for their fans - resulting in better attendance, hope for the future and good PR. Beyond that there really isn't a realistic trade they could make that would make them World Series contenders. Too many potholes, not enough asphalt to fill them. The Orioles might have a serviceable team right now and they have some okay pieces, but I can feel rest assured that Dan Duquette is not looking at the here and now, but towards 2-3 years from now. Dylan Bundy will not be traded... not now, maybe in 8 years.

Willingham is signed for 2 more years, Morneau for one. Yet the Orioles are said to have interest in Greinke (Free Agent), and with Liriano (Free Agent). What, do you suspect, would/did the Orioles have offered for Greinke? So, if not the package above, then I think the biggest haul for either pitcher would be to sign and shop. No more money spent by the seller and a bigger haul on trade return.

Ummm.....If you throw in Sano and Buxton the Orioles MIGHT consider this deal. Probably the worst trade proposal I have seen on this site which is saying quite a bit.

Not Bundy or Machado. Anything below them in the Orioles' farm system.

I guess I'm a dimbulb: could you let me in on the joke? I keep seeing Terry Ryan referred to as JR.

His initials are TWR; he's not a "junior" to father of the same name; he doesn't resemble J.R. Ewing as far as I can see. Please help.

It's just some inside joke they (or is just one? he? she?) insist on repeating all the time.
