It seems to be pretty unanimous here that the Marlins need one addition to the starting rotation to have any chance at contending in 2016.

If you could add one more starting pitcher, who would it be and why?

I'm gonna include free agents in the poll but feel free to propose any trade possibilities as well.

Also, I'm not Admin so this isn't some sneaky front office poll... Unless Admin wants to do something with the results.

trade for Gio,but unlikely especially after we won the bidding war for Chen.

Fister's a great buy low guy who had high levels of success the previous four years, including an ERA in the low 2's in 2014. If he's available on a short term, high incentive deal, there shouldn't be any reason not to take a chance.

I think Lincecum could definitely be worth a shot if he's healthy and recovered from the hip surgery.

I voted for Tim "Mitch Kramer" Lincecum but only if he shows he still has something left

They wanted Yelich. We quickly hung up the phone after that.

I picked Lincecum aka The Freak.

Although Lee/Fister came in a close second.

If Marlins were to sign Kennedy do they give up another draft pick as well? 3rd Rounder?

I believe Kennedy does cost a draft pick. At this point the Marlins shouldn't care about that because what do they ever do with those pics besides trade them away or pick below slot anyways?

But I wouldn't doubt if that is something that is holding them back.

Trade Dietrich in a deal for Andrew Cashner.

Price tag and loss of a draft pick aside, I think Kennedy would be the one who can improve this club the most.

In an ideal scenario, Loria goes all in on the rotation and adds both Kennedy and Fister to really extend the rotation. This way we wouldn't lean so heavily on any of Chen Kennedy and Fister. The three of them combined could be a huge lift down here. Also takes pressure off of Cosart/Koehler. Gives Conley Nicolino Urena and Flores the minor league time they need to contribute later. And puts Jackson and Phelps in their best positions to help us as relievers/depth starters. Also probably puts the nail in the coffin for Hand (that's for you, Vince!)

I think Fernandez, Chen, Kennedy, Cosart/Koehler, and Fister is a mighty upgrade for us.

Is Mike Minor still a FA? 

He underwent shoulder surgery last year, so depending on how he's recovered. might as well sign him to a minimum contract and get him to fill the same role as Edwin. Can never have too many lefties.

reported Nats want to trade Gio only after they signing Chen,so it's unlikely at all now.
