Yuniesky Betancourt...comparable skin color.
A's outrighted Scott Sizemore, he'd be worth taking a flyer on. Obviously there's injury concerns but he had a promising 2011 before missing 2012 & 13 with ACL surgeries. Could help out at 2b/3b.
Hey guys, what do you think about Derek Dietrich?
Where is Tino?
I was thinking the same extendu lol. He's missing from this thread, make sure to post in the Stanton won't be traded thread. I think derek is missing from that one too.
McCann to Yankees.
Edit: Link says not finalized but I just saw on ESPN ticker that it's done deal.
It was a pipe dream that he'd be a Marlin anyway once the news hit that he was seeking about 100 mil.
Nice dream. I fear we break camp with Mathis as the main catcher.
Marlins are interested in Phil Hughes.
I wasn't aware he had been converted to play 3B? In all seriousness, I don't think Marls should waste a spot on the rotation on a guy like him at this point.
I agree but then I think of the disaster that was Tom Koehler,
Eh, honestly that wouldn't bother me too much. I'm not so down on Mathis, think he's a good signal caller, and with a young staff that counts for a lot IMHO (I honestly signal calling is a highly underrated but extremely valuable catching skill). Keep him in the 8 hole and upgrade elsewhere, particularly 3rd, SS and 2nd.
Via MLBTR, they've shown interest in Dioner Navarro and Phil Hughes.
This is so Marlins. A pitcher we don't need and a catcher whose contract year was John Buck-like.
I agree that defense behind the plate is very important... but you can't have Hech and Mathis both in the lineup. It guarantees a losing team. Hech clearly isn't going anywhere, so an upgrade at catcher offensively is a must.
Maybe their interest in Hughes means that they might be working on a trade to move one of our young pitchers for a position of need? If that is the case I'm not against it. I still think Hughes has upside, and in a move to the National League and our ballpark would be really good for him.
Phil Hughes. What a joke.
Get me Saltalamacchia and Middlebrooks.
Red Sox fan?
With McCann gone, Salty is now the best catcher on the market. He gonna get paid, whether or not he deserves it.
