If we get him it honestly going to be something hilarious like Caritini, Bote, Hatch (or whatever the hell minor league pitching fodder they want) and some low level lottery ticket. We’ll probably end up with Britton and IFA money too
They aren't trading us Machado (and Britton and IFA money) for Caratini, Bote, minor league pitching fodder, and some other minor prospects. Sorry, but he's going to get a better return than JD Martinez got last year.
Baltimore does seem like a pretty dumb organization so they might prioritize big-league ready prospects like Bote over better prospects that are further away.
I was mostly joking. Their return is still going to be relative garbage though and “even better than Martinez” still has a lot of room to be a horsefeathers return.
