    With Britton out for 6 months but due a large arbitration salary, and Machado reportedly off the market after poor trade offers, how fucked are the Orioles?

    Agreed. And Smoak.

    Yeah thatís a farm system that probably wonít be able to start any sort of recovery until the end of the decade at the earliest if those two just end up walking.

    Just to add on to your previous post though, with those guys off the market, isnít this the best time for the Jays to capitalize by trading Donaldson and Osuna? Cards may start getting desperate for a bat and there would be tons of teams lining up for Osuna now that Britton is going nowhere.

    Well if the potential return for Machado wasnít good enough to trade him, perhaps the offers for JD arenít very good either. Who knows though!

    Yup. If he sustains his success in the first half and the Jays are out of it, then I would 100% support moving him as well.

    Smoak isn't going to get you anything worth trading him for.

    Disagree, he could easily get a young BP pitcher

    You're right, they aren't going to trade him before the season but he would be one of the most attractive bullpen arms at the deadline if they decided to move him.

    Smoak was a three win player last year owed 10M over the next two years. There would absolutely be takers for him if he maintains the adjustments he made last year, which is essentially curbing the strikeouts.

    Similar players are only getting $7M.

    That's why he would have to be good again to start the year.

    A power bat available for 2M at the deadline will likely have suitors, especially in the AL.

    I agree. Someone might overpay at the deadline if he puts up similar numbers.

    There are actually a few playoff hopefuls who have tenuous 1B situations. Houston (Gurriel), Boston (Moreland/Hanley), Mariners (Healy?), Angels (Pujols/Cron). I guess CLE could use Eddie at 1B with Alonso. I'm a huge Bird fan but who knows what he gives NYY next year.

    Even if you want to include the Twins (Mauer sucks). Giants could move Belt to LF and use Smoak at 1B.
