    Re: Trade Idea- Freel for Ramon Hernandez?

    I wonder how many players that leaves from the opening day roster in 2007?

    The only position players left are Edwin, Phillips, and Gonzalez.

    I wonder how many of his passed balls were uncorked by Daniel Cabrera?

    Time to change the thread title to more than a "trade idea"?

    Hernandez + cash for Freel + 2 minor leaguers

    Nothing official yet, but said to be on the commissioner's desk...

    Freel ($4M in 2009) + 2 prospects for Ramon Hernandez ($8M in 2009 and a team option for 2010 at $8.5M and a $1M buyout). The Orioles will throw in some cash...

    More than a few if I remember correctly but several pitchers who have started for the O's in the last two or so years aren't know for their stellar control.

    I expect the minor leaguers to be fairly inconsequential, so this looks like a good deal. Hernandez should still be in his prime for the next couple of years, and he has put up some excellent OPS numbers in the past.

    I misread an earlier post. I thought The Jock was doing a presser at 4:15. Based on that, and some of the recient posts I thought the details of the cash/players were announced.

    My bad.

    (Thanks for the help, however).

    Definitely an unsexy move, but it does mean the catcher position will probably be at least average both offensively and defensively. So it's certainly not a horrible move or anything.

    Like who? It's not like I want Hairston to be a starter or anything, just a utility player who platoons with Dickerson.

    It's actually nice to see WJ trade Freel for something of value to the team. You're right, it's not sexy, but Hernandez definitely fills a team need, and he isn't Javy-bad or Bako-bad.

    I'm OK with it. At least it gives Walt a year to look for a younger, more longterm solution.

    This improves the catcher position. Go trade for Jermaine Dye, bring in one more starting pitcher and let's go to work!
