Yes and no. Ozuna was never a clubhouse problem and I don't think this organization would shy away from guys as good as him.This is 100% speculation by me but even if bringing in Ozuna was the best baseball decision I don’t think this front office would do it. I think the front office wanted to divest themselves of all the clubhouse personalities they inherited.
Yes, but it's either super cheap ones like Walker and Romo to plug some gaps, or use open payroll to start creating assets in 2022 and beyond with guys being underpaid in "contending years."
He only cares about cash.Would Scott Boras be a problem ?
Bleday - over slot too (a little) I believeNo, he talks a big game but we signed Chen under him too so despite what he says if we offer good money he happily takes it. I wanna say we signed another one of his guys after Chen too but I can't remember who if anyone.
Yep I like Nick as well. Hopefully they take a big swing and aren't just faking interest in a bunch of free agents.I would love to have Castellanos. Great hitter, still young, Miami guy that would really help this lineup.
Guy had 58 doubles last season!
And he's proven that many times in the past. He'll hold out until spring training even if he sees potential dollars coming.He only cares about cash.
I agree with the bat comp. Maybe he never gets to JD's recent epic years, but the guy can hit and I think there is growth potential, with a .850 OPS floor which is fantastic. I don't think he is an Eric Hosmer at all.I would love to have Castellanos. Great hitter, still young, Miami guy that would really help this lineup.
Guy had 58 doubles last season! I see him becoming something similar to J.D. Martinez.
Not sure whether I would want him at third base or right field. Have heard some negatives about his outfield defense so if the Marlins definitely want Anderson at third then perhaps Castellanos would be better off in left than right.
Yep. A long holdout for Castellanos seems like it will happen as Boras will have a standing offer and just hope someone gets hurt first two weeks of spring training.Yep I like Nick as well. Hopefully they take a big swing and aren't just faking interest in a bunch of free agents.

Ha, well let's see if they sign anyone first.So, just to clarify the situation financially... Jeter and company have money to spend? I heard they were broke and would never be able to spend money on free agents.
I'll take one for the team and get busy with them if it seals the deal haha.
