I say, over and over. As a franchise, they should give him what he wants. Find some more damn 'Special Money' Loria. Screw Castillo and Lee.

The Brewers have Sexson.

The Expos have Gurereo

The Devil Rays have Huff.

Can't we have Lowell?

Anyways getting back to the topic. I agree it would be very nice to see the marlins make lowell their franchise player, because he is emerging as the best third basemen in the league.

I say the marlins should keep Lowell because Lee is not good enough, and I love Castillo but his skills are not enough to carry a team. So I agree keep Lowell even if you have to Let both Lee and Castillo go.

The funny thing is...

We might not be able to gte rid of 2 and keep 1. But I still think they will make the right decision and build a team of the future around Lowell's offense.

As the Indians with Burks. The Devil Rays with Huff.

I don't think it is a question of what Lowell wants, but more of a decision from the management that they might not be able to afford him next year. He is not a free agent next year that I know of, but arbitration elegible, which would allow him to get some serious money, especially with the numbers he is putting. Therefore, he doesn't get to decide whether to stay or not, unless he is traded. That is why I believe he should be offered a contract extension before the July 31 deadline; we can have him now a lot cheaper that at the end of the year. And, you are right, he is not only a fan's favorite and a run producer, but a genuine franchise player.

I think that the time for "getting to know what we have" is over! This guy has proven to be the best player we have had in quite a while, with no signs of slowing down. Instead of trying to trade our best player, we should be putting more emphasis on our weaker areas and improve them: we need a good bench, a veteran starter, and probably a proven reliever (I am sick and tired of watching Almanza walking everyone!)

BTW, are we having a platoon at LF? Or maybe we don't have a LF? I have seen Hollandsworthless, Banks, and Allen over there the last couple of days. What about getting a proven left fielder for a change instead of trading Lowell !!! Like I said before, the missing piece of this puzzle is not 3B...

Chad Allen started tonight because TH isnt good vs lefties, and Banks did play because????

TH and Banks are a fine tandem in LF

Don't blame Bienfest... He doesn't pay the salaries. He just controls what they are. If Loria gives Bienfest the funds to do it, Lowell will sign a big deal to Florida. Need I remind you this is his home town, that doesn't attract much attention to him when he slumps...Therefore, less pressure...
