royals also kicking tires on Jeremy Guthrie- seems KC has bigger fish 2 catch but Guthrie certainly would be upgrade- KC looking busy fo sho


Would be very interesting to see what they discussed. Royals have a TON of relievers to possibly trade. I doubt they give up on any legitimate prospects for Guthrie though.

holy fail of topic title. Sorry!

Roryals = KC and Baltimore consolidating into one team.

You could get a lot of upside quantity from KC...

Very true! I would take Chris Dwyer alone but they could take quantity instead.

Don what kind of package would you be looking for?

Wil Meyers and those higher are off the wish list. I like Guthrie, but that return is too steep.

If I am the Orioles, I would target Jake Odorizzi, Jeremy Jeffress, and Jason Adam.

Odorizzi might be able to pitch second half of next season. Jeffress is a power bullpen arm that could replace JJ, if he goes to the rotation. Adam is the prize IMHO, but long way away, pure projection power arm.

I would absolutely love a deal with a return like that. I am a huge fan of Jeffress.
Sickels on the 3:
4) Jake Odorizzi, RHP, Grade B+: He has been a favorite of mine for three years and I see no reason to change that opinion, although he needs to work a bit lower in the zone.

14) Jason Adam, RHP, Grade C+: You could make a case to rank him ahead of the guys who haven't pitched yet. Seems overlooked and I think he could break through at Wilmington.

19) Jeremy Jeffress, RHP, Grade C+: Still trying to figure out how to use that fastball, but seemed to go backwards this year despite making opening day roster.

I'll look into a list of 3 and post when I get out of work (late tonight), while the rumor is still hot stuff like this is fun to do.

Just to take some different guys...

Yordano Ventura, RHP the kind of upside arm the O's could use, bullpen may be in his future though but he looks enticing

Jorge Bonifacio, OF O's need some power corner outfielders and he could be ready around the time we trade Markakis

Mike Montgomery LHP could be ready soon for the starting rotation. Maybe a mid season call up if all goes well.

There are a lot of ways you could go if you wanted some upside quantity from KC

That could actually make some sense but I think it's unlikely.

I would take just Montgomery or both Bonifacio and Ventura together.
