    Miami Marlins Top 32 Prospects

    We created 3 holes on the roster NOW, to gain assets for the future (both prospects and payroll). We weren’t going to compete in the lifespan of those 3 players. The farm system was barren and there were no practical answer to the issues we had. This is really simple stuff.

    Oh I 100% agree. But keep in mind, it’s those prospects + 250 mill off the books. That’s significant. Moreso addressing your original comment that this crop might not be anything. I would’ve taken literally any prospect outside of Sierra and Gallen does zero for me, but it’s still hyperbole. That’s all

    The only way James is in their rotation is if they plan on keeping Whitley in AAA for a significant amount of time. That or cutting bait with McHugh I guess. Im good with Martin & Nova as add ons

    A bidding war between Houston and Atlanta is the best case scenario. A package of Tucker, James/Bukausks, & a guy like Cristian Javier or Ronnie Dawson would be ideal

    This is a bit of an exaggeration IMO. Sandy is Urena at worst. He should develop into a nice #3 starter as he learns how to pitch. I feel fairly confident in saying Guzman should at WORST be a serviceable back in bullpen piece Not a fan of Gallen and Devers is a wait and see. Sierra is irrelevant to me

    FWIW, tucker is my favorite prospect in all of baseball so maybe I’m higher on him than most. Guy has a legitimate chance to be Yelly 2.0. Possibly even slightly better. I know that sounds crazy coming off the year Yelich just had, but the kid can flat out hit and is a better base stealer than Yelly.

    It was a joke. Source - see comment above where I said I’d take Tucker for JT straight up

    I honestly would be ok with JT for Tucker straight up. Tucker has a chance to be better than Yelly

    Of course we want OFers. I mean, could you imagine what a line up we could build with a stacked OF? Put a couple MVPs out there and mix in another guy who could put up AS caliber #s and we are set. Just get a pitcher or two and we are playoff bound. See ya in 2026

    Was thinking the same thing. Signing Maldonado does 2 things - gives you the stop gap you’re looking for and increases demand for your most valuable asset.

    Agreed. I don’t mind Barnhart, but at this point he needs to be viewed as a Value Add rather than a real piece that moves the needle. Trammel + Mahle or another young SP

    The rumor floating around is a deal centered around Trammell & Barnhart. I’m not in love with that.

    Except for the fact that our windows for competing don’t align. They are trying to win now, and the next 2 years, while our window likely doesn’t open until 2021 at the earliest.

    2018 Winter Meetings

    Why in the world would we do that? Santana provides zero value to us post 2020 when we plan on being competitive

    I disagree. This is about maximizing assets. Get the best return possible, regardless of where he is traded to. There’s no guarantee he will be on that team by the time we are competitive
