Orioles are seeking two controllable young pitchers for one year of Machado. Would Gonsalves/Romero + Jorge get the job done?

I doubt it, but we would get one year of Machado.

No chance I trade two pitchers for 1 year of Machado. Zero. Nada. Nil. Zilch. 

 

I can't even imagine why the Twins would do that.

It's been a fun year so far, GO Twins. Oh, and I have at least one blog post now......The table on my first blog post is now fixed. Sigh.

IF they could figure out a way to extend him before the trade was finalized?Cause 4 or more years of Machado, I'd take that for those two pitchers.

If Machado was open to a 4 year extension, he'd be in Baltimore for 5 more years

Well, I did say 4 OR MORE.

 

Also possible he doesn't want to stay there since he wants to be a SS and they keep putting him at 3B.Who knows.

... and if you go back to 2015 both Cobb and Lynn have xFIPs ranked below Kyle Gibson over the last 3 years. Yes. They had serious injuries but that shouldn’t be a plus. What is the likelihood they return to their form of 2012-2014? There might be a few front offices seriously concerned about committing to 4 years of their decline.

Any player that you sign in free agency is going to be in danger of declining. The question would be when. Other than the TJ, Lynn has been relatively healthy starting 30 or more games a year . Not so with Cobb. Cobb is more likely to decline quicker than Lynn.It is not like the farm system of the Twins is so deep that the team can trade for multiple top oe tear top of the rotation pitchers. You have to take a chance

Mod note: TD has an article on the subject of Michael Pineda now - please continue the discussion of that player there. http://twinsdaily.co...michael-pineda/

It is amazing how many eggs one can break without making a decent omelette.
