- Reaction score
So I was in contact with someone who will be chiming in with his thoughts for the draft and other stuff with the Marlins... I learned 3 things today
- Brett Hayes is less than a year away. Defensively he is ready. If there was an injury to John Baker, he would be next in line. If not this year, we will see him in 2008 if the offense is even remotely adequate.
- Brett Carroll hasn't looked this good since the day we signed him. He is showing power to all fields and his arm is fantastic. If things continue to progress like they have in CF for the Marlins, Brett will get his chance to shine sooner than later
- My question was "if Wieters is there at 12, will we take him"... the reply was delayed by nervous laughter and then a "I guess we'll see"
- I fired out 2 other questions to him. First, "if you were a team who needed a major league arm out of the Marlins minors, who would you grab"? His answer was Gaby Hernandez. Second was "for the long term, who's your arm?". The answer was Aaron Thompson.
