The Orioles would not accept this offer. Machado will bring a much bigger return than that, prospects that ranking higher than the teams 13th and 15th best prospects.

Not even close to what the O's would want.

Those are like pieces D and E in a trade for Machado.

Machado has 1 year of rental left. He's not worth more the a few mid level pitching prospects. If he was he'd be traded by now. If he had 2 or more years. He would get you 3 top prospects in the teams top 10. Maybe even in a teams top 7.

It's a given fact he's not worth much.

You need to look at a few past trades, Such as the mid season trade of Chapman to the Cubs, that was half season rental. CC Sabathia brought in a haul for a half a season in 2008. Zack Greinke to the Angels in 2012 brought back a big haul for half a seasons. Matt Holliday before the 2009 season to the A's, a one year rental, brought the Rockies a huge haul, Cliff Lee to the Mariners and then the Rangers in 2010 brought in huge hauls for a one year rental. These prove you don't know much about value.

This is comical, coming from an obvious Cubs fan (check his previous trade ideas out) .

How is he not worth much? Far worse players have been traded as rentals for significantly more. Heck, look no further than the Cubs a few years back (doubt you were even a fan then) when they'd trade rentals.

Machado is going to come at a package something like Russell/ Happ/ De La Cruz/ Clifton.

While we're at it, let's just have them acquire Clayton Kershaw for a couple minor-league relievers.

He's a rental, so he's not worth much, right?

Add Bryce Harper to the list of guys with no value.

Baltimore's front office and ownership is extremely weird to me. I can't see Machado getting dealt at all.

O's want what you guys are saying. Has Machado been traded yet? Nope, a top 10 hitter maybe even top 5. Can't get deals done? Cause teams don't want to give up their farm system for a rental.
If he had 2 or more years remaining I would trade the farm and Happ, Russell, and Schwarber for him.

I'll tell you right now if Machado is traded to the Cubs, Addison Russell will be an Oriole.

Apparently you didn't read my examples of one year and half year rentals getting traded. So again Sabathia, Holliday, Beltran, Chapman, Lee (twice), Greinke, David Price when he went to the Blue Jays. I would also point out that if Machado isn't trade its because of their owner, he's clueless, he should realize his team is about to go down hill. They don't have a good farm system either.

13.) 04 Jan 2018

Wait, so you acknowledge he's a top 10, "maybe top 5" hitter, but don't think he's worth anything more than a couple of relief pitchers?

I can't tell if you're actually this clueless, or this is an act.

It is believed that the Orioles are seeking two controllable starting pitchers for Machado, who is set to become a free agent after the 2018 season. That price seems to be too steep for Machado.

you do realize if he is traded the Orioles will get at least 4 prospects for Machado.

Also, Torres was tradeable cause we had Russell, Baez, and Zobrist. Plus Bryant at 3rd. I keep reading the experts say Russell will get his head on straight and hit 25+ homers and 90+ RBIs, Baez will keep getting better. Zobrist a World Series hero in 2015 with KC and with us in 2016. Might be hard to trade a Maddon guy. So let's say Russell, Happ, and 3 pitching prospects. Way to much. Russell and Happ can fill in 2 positions and combined more power then Machado. Yea Machado is the best but I'd rather have Russell and Happ over Machado.

It's hilarious that a Cubs fan mentions Russell, but can't even consider that they acquired him in a trade for, get this, a RENTAL! Zobrist, he was acquired by Kansas City as a rental, for an exorbitant price, as well. They traded Torres, for a rental.

Seriously, you have literally no clue how this works, and you should honestly stop.

Sonny, everyone on this site will be against you. This is the most pathetic trade I've ever read on here and the sad part is you're actually serious. Common man, Machado is literally one of the best players in the game, ONLY 25 years old, entering his PRIME years. He will get back two controllable arms plus some. Do you even watch baseball or follow the game at all? You're just embarrassing yourself at this point.

Another thing you don't address is where Machado would play? Can't dh, they are the national league. They have Russell and Baez for short, and Bryant for 3rd.

According to a source, the Orioles will continue to listen to interested teams, but they don't plan on moving Machado for a discounted package. That could change come July if Baltimore is out of the race, but for now, the asking price remains high.

Baltimore will be out of the race. They have close to no pitching.

Wait, now you are acknowledging he will bring a huge haul, and you think your puny offer is a huge haul? Cubs don't have any top 100 prospects right now, the Orioles would surely want a few of those.

Sonny: "According to a source, the Orioles will continue to listen to interested teams, but they don't plan on moving Machado for a discounted package. "

Also Sonny: Here's a hilariously discounted package for Machado. I think it's fair.

Lets not forget Guy's that although Machado is a rental, he probably won't be traded to a team that won't be resigning him. There will some agreement in there. So his value is obviously quite high based on age and quality.
