I was thinking of people who the Marlins could possobly trade for to get TH out of LF, and Rocco Baldelli's name popped into my head...

I'm not implying we trade the D-Rays TH, but that we trade some prospects for Rocco... It isn't like he is an untouchable player...

Just a thought... Anybody else got any?

When it's the Tampa Bay Devil Rays, a team that can't get to . 500 with or w/o him and one that is built on prospects, a team that can't sign him to a long term deal, he isn't untouchable...

Put all the intangibles of that franchise together and he isn't untouchable...

They have him cheap for 4 more years I believe because of arbitration. They won't even consider trading him until he gets close to becoming a FA.

The right package of prospects might persuade them to...

You never know...

As likely as the Marlins trading Willis for the "right package of prospects."

Marlins can afford Willis (although they can afford Roco NOW), and he could mean the difference for us being over . 500 or not. They aren't a good team with or w/o Rocco...

That won't happen... Devil Rays are rumored that they will give Rocco a long term deal after next year if he keeps producing like this...

Then what about Huff?
why would the DRays consider trading their best players away...

they are young team that is getting more competitive each year...

just the thought is lunacy

We wont get Rocco. He is the biggest Run Producer the Rays have. Huff has very good power and can hit very good. I would make a deal for him. Todd isnt doing to well for us so he can be traded along with some Prospects but the Rays wont let go of Rocco.

Well I don't think the Rays want Todd instead of Aubrey, and it would take a very good package of prospects and maybe a pro or two to pry one of those guys from the Rays, but they aren't untouchable...

To me, almost no player is untouchable...

Anybody can be acquired for the right price...

You don't think if we offered them Lowell and A-Gon we couldn't get Huff or Rocco? :p
