Well, you could substitute TH fore Abe Nunez, and Redmond for Castro, and that not only gets rid of more money for us, but really would give the Padres better talent...

I'm sure they'd want Castro over Redmond, he's the one with upside.

 

I dunno...I guess they wouldn't be giving up much, but why have they been sitting on Castro all this time if they haven't thought he was worth keeping?

 

Only problem with White is that he's an injury waiting to happen. He's an upgrade over Hollandsworth offensively (although who isn't right now) but in the outfield he may have the worst arm in baseball. Coming off a terrible season with the Yanks but seems to be playing better in SD this year. Would be a cool pickup to make a run though, & a good lefthanded bat. White's a righty.

Hey no complaint from me, I love Red as a backup catcher. I just found it odd that they would sit on Castro all this time only to dump him now. (if it's true). And how could they possibly be keeping Pudge? There's just no money for this... If Willingham or Jourgensen is their answer, I guess we'll see.

-Left Field doesn't toll on the arm as much as the other postions of the outfield. It is the closest outfield position to the plate for a right hander.

- In case he get injured we can play Banks in Left.

-TH has to go

-Castro is good, but we have to give up something, it is a trade.

- If beinfest can pull this off, it would instill confidence amongst the fans and players.

The original post included Hollandsworth in the rumor, but then said they wanted to keep Hollandsworth? Heck, absolutely include him if they make a deal for White.

 

Oh, and speaking of attendance... I think attendance is already going to spike from the Dontrelle Willis excitement. I can't count the number of people I work with who've said "man I saw that game on TV, I've got to go see this kid next time he pitches!"

Here's ESPN's scouting report on Rondell White:

 

Scouting Report:

 

2002 Season

In many ways, 2002 was the worst season of left fielder Rondell White's career. After signing a two-year deal with the Yankees, he got off to a slow start before rupturing a tendon in his left middle finger in June. He kept playing but never got his bat going, and by the time the playoffs came he'd been reduced to a part-time role.

 

Hitting

White is an aggressive line-drive hitter with fairly good power to all fields. He doesn't hit enough flyballs to be a consistent home-run threat, but he'd always hit for a good average until last year. Drawing walks is not part of his game, and he'll chase fastballs up and out of the strike zone. He's always hit well against southpaws, and continued to do so last year even as he struggled badly against righthanded pitchers. He likes to jump on the first pitch and does his best hitting early in the count. He's always drawn too few walks to be an ideal leadoff man, and hasn't had quite enough power to be a top-flight run producer. So when he doesn't hit for a good average, he fills no useful role at all.

 

Baserunning & Defense

White still has good speed, but years of knee problems have rendered him a nonthreat to steal and a much less aggressive baserunner overall for someone with his ability. He puts his mobility to good use in the outfield, where he has above-average range. His notoriously weak throwing arm is a major liability, even in left field.

 

2003 Outlook

The outlook for White is the same as it's always been: he's capable of putting up good numbers if he can stay healthy, but his injury history makes that unlikely. Still, with the money the Yankees have invested in him, they likely will have to give him every chance to rebound if they are unable to trade him.

Why would the Marlins trade this early, and for White? A guy with 10Hr and 33 RBi is not exactly making my toes tingle.

 

And as for the speculation that the Marlins are going to make some type of run at a wildcard spot - and the inference that they would to keep key players around for this run.... I can't see any reason why they would. They are 7 games back, have half the league in front of them in the standings, have a horrible schedule coming up, and would stand to get nothing at the end of the year for players that have some value now.

 

Mark my words, if the Marlins keep these players around for a long-shot at the WC (Which it is, no two ways about it) it's a one shot deal.... And next year will be a train wreck.

 

At the very least, the Marlins should be wating until after the AS break to assess the situation. I just can't see them making a move in June when they are so far out and have so much time left in the season.

 

Maybe I just haven't got caought up in the Marlins' fever yet, but this seems like a head scratcher if it is true.
