[Olney] Sources: The Orioles have structure of a deal in place, and are going through the medicals/paperwork portion of the transaction. Dodgers have been very invested in their pursuit of Machado, as have the Phillies and other teams, but this in not finished yet.

Agreed. Also I feel like the rest of the trade market is waiting on this deal to see where the ceiling is. I'm betting once he finally moves rumors will start coming quick on other players.

99% chance all the details have already been hammered out, but they're waiting until after the All Star Game to make it official. If he gets traded before the game, the O's won't have a single player on the team, which isn't allowed.

Buster Olney, like Jayson Stark yesterday, is reporting that a Machado deal is pretty much done and are just going through the medicals.

However, I can't help but feel as if a certain detail in all this is missing...

I’m convinced we’ll never find out what team he was traded to. He’s going to take on someone’s identity from the team he goes to and just disappear. We’ll never wonder why Travis Shaw is all the sudden Latino and batting righty.

level 2

39 points · 1 month ago

How the fuck does he start with structure of a deal in place. Going through medicals. And end it with not finished yet.

level 3

Deals are always announced with pending medicals being a formality. So I don't understand this either. Sounds like they don't have a trade.

level 2
New York Yankees
12 points · 1 month ago

Seriously, the deal is all but done but you can't share the fucking team?

level 3
St. Louis Cardinals
2 points · 1 month ago

He may not have been told which team, and even if he had been, disclosing it would piss off everyone at both teams and MLB, which wouldn't exactly be helpful to his career.

level 3

As mentioned earlier, MLB doesn't want it announced right before the All-Star Game as it takes attention away from it and the Orioles would have no one to represent them in the game, which isn't allowed.

Eh. I’m personally feeling this is doubtful. I don’t think Stearns will make a trade unless it’s a decent deal, and I’ve got the impression it’ll take more than that... unless Orioles are just blowing smoke trying to drive up the price.

I know Machado is amazing and a big impact player, but I don’t know that the crew is fully ready to really contend come Oct even with him. I’m thinking I’d rather keep Peralta, Burnes, and Hiura and see what happens in a year or two - fill in what they need then. I really wouldn’t mind eating those words, though.

I feel like if theres any team out there that needs to take a risk it's the Brewers, you guys are on the cusp of a division title and it seems like you guys have a team with a very similar formula to the 2014-2015 Royals that went to back to back World Series and won one, Manny could be what puts you guys over the top.

If I were them, honestly, I'd say screw it and go after Manny and Britton. If for no other reason than to stop their competition from getting them. They'd have an insane bullpen to shorten games if their SP falters.

Side question, is Peralta going to get shutdown or could he make playoff starts?

Any trade won't be officially announced until after the all-star game. MLB doesn't want to deal with the "what team should he play for" fiasco that would ensue. Then also questions about whether the Orioles are entitled to another team all-star.

Machado is traded during the bottom of the 3rd inning. As the inning ends, a teammate jogs out to hand him a brand new Dodgers National League jersey, and Machado stays on the field.

Is Machado having to fly to LA, Philly, etc for these physicals or do the team doctors just show up at his house and ask him to take off his clothes?
