What is the 1 move you want to see the most this off-season, and what would be the 1 move which would annoy you the most?

Want to see: Trading vets for more prospects. Get the dead wood out.

Dread: Signing older veterans to expensive deals to add a win or two to the end total. If you have a mentorship need they fill or they could be a high value low risk trade chip, fine. Don't sign mediocre 30-somethings just to do it.

Excellent post on both accounts here.

I would like to see McHugh signed if the elbow is good and he can be had at good value.

I don’t want to see them sign Odorizzi, who I think will get overpaid by a lot.

Personally, I don’t think Elias does anything stupid. My “not like” of him would probably be more of him not making moves or doing something that seems to be good for the long term of the team but him not executing the move.

Want - Release Chris Davis.

Dread - Standing pat. Obviously don’t expect any big moves on the major league side but I want them to shop everyone and be active on guys that are cheap bounce back candidates that can be flipped at the deadline.

Any veteran pitcher, a one year deal is fine, if only for trade bait in July. But no multi year deals in my opinion.

I don’t mind a multi year deal depending on the pitcher and the amount of money.

If McHugh, for example, signed something like a 2/12-15M deal, I would be happy with that.

The Chris Davis release is probably on everyone's list, so I will skip that.

 

Want:  Colin McHugh type signing.  I had brought him up a few weeks ago, and he is the type to pursue.  Maybe he becomes part of the team going forward or does well and we trade at the AS Break.

 

Do not want- to trade Villar for a guy or guys 5 years away.

I honestly do not  think, you will have to worry about it, because I think they will only sign a few Nate Karns type guys.  They will hope to et some mileage out of them, until they are ready to try Kremer and Aiken.

I might be okay with that.  And I get the whole argument  of he could help the team more by being dealt.  My reasons for not wanting him to be dealt are more selfish, in a team with a bunch of duds he's a familiar face who is probably my favorite current Oriole and I would hate to see him go.
