Always change your guess.
Obviously, sending last year’s 1st-round draft pick, Jeff Hoffman, to the Orioles is a terrible idea. Terrible, and terribly scary in that Rogers may do it just to make the problem go away, and to hell with the on-field consequences.
Here’s a list of things that might be more appropriate compensation to the Orioles for Dan Duquette. Or if not appropriate, at least not infuriating:
Any one of Ryan Goins, Maicer Izturis, Danny Valencia or Steve Tolleson (i.e. a Mike Aviles type)
Chase DeJong or Matt Boyd (i.e. a second-tier pitching prospect)
Chad Jenkins (i.e. a Chris Carpenter type)
Coupons for a pregame Steam Whistle tour AND a drunken ride on the adjacent miniature train
Gregg Zaun, Bob McCown, and Steve Simmons
Last season’s Astroturf. Baled.
A solemn promise not to type “OrioLOLes” ever, ever, ever again.
