My thoughts here for possible next year.

they trade beckett and Lowell. they get back top notch talent to fill out the team. They ditch the salary of Lowell. Plus get back Hanely and Lester (LHP).

 

This would give them their SS (future all star), and a SP for next year that is a beast.

 

They move mota and a prospect to Colorado for Fuentes (the lefty closer).

 

This would give them a top notch Allstar closer that is dirt cheap and young.

 

they them flip Pierre to the White sox for Rowand and Marte

 

This would also let them keep Delgado and have the payroll around 50 million (whichis their goal).

 

 

A rotation of

LHP D. Willis

RHP J Johnson (stud but young)

LHP S. Olsen (stud but young)

??????????????????????

LHP J Vargas (Stud but young)

 

We would have about 8 arms in the minors that would be ready next year that would all be 1-2 caliber pitchers. Pretty sick if you ask me but why?

 

Relief staff

C. Resop (RHP)

R. Messenger (RHP)

D. Marte (LHP)

A. Alfonseco (RHP)

R. Villone (LHP)

 

B. Fuentes (LHP) Closer

 

Starting lineup

L. Castillo (2nd baseman)

J. Hermida (RF)

M. Cabrera (3B)

C Delgado (1B)

P. LoDuca ©

J. Connie (LF)

A Rowand (CF)

H. Rameriz (SS)

 

Bench

all time (PH)

Joe Dillon (Utility IF/OF)

Matt Treanor C

D. Easily (Utility IF)

J. Willingham (OF/C/IF)

 

 

It isnt a terrible team if they can find someone for a number 3 pitcher to toss in there. They would be hell of young at alot of positions. specially the rotation and bullpen. But, we did this in 2002 and it worked out. Who thought when we traded floyd, Clement, etc. it would work out alright like it did? But we got d-train pierre, etc...

 

But, It would give us Alot of depth in the minors in pitching again. So we do also have a few more that are major league ready soon. We would need a quality number 3 pitcher like Byrd or something is all.

 

But on the downside, I would have JP or Josh or even Lowell going. I understand lowell but I think he will bounce back. Josh is just a shot through the heart.

 

If they can make up the 45 million difference they can still build the stadium. so they are closer then alot of folks thing here.

 

this is a crappy offseason.

It seems to me that if they cut payroll, they're not putting the savings toward the stadium...cutting payroll would be so Loria loses LESS money than he has been - and he'll STILL lose money, no matter how small the payroll.

 

This would also let them keep Delgado and have the payroll around 50 million (whichis their goal).

 

Pretty ridiculous if you ask me to have nearly 1/3 of your team's payroll in one player.

Part of the way the scenario plays out is that Delgado, unhappy with the Marlins' chances to win it all in 2006 publically asks to be traded (thus letting Loria off the hook), and the Marlins balk, and say "...no, no Carlos please don't go..." (wink, wink, nod, nod) until he guarantees the acquiring team that he will not invoke his "trade me" clause while with that team, thus significantly increasing his trade value to the Fish.

 

Marlins cash-in bigtime.

No Swift. I didn't say cash-out.

 

I clearly said cash-in.

 

I know you're an angry puppy right now but you usually are pretty clear-headed about this stuff. Don't let your emotions pull you over to the dark side, there is plenty of winning baseball left in the Florida Marlins, in 2006 and years to come.

 

There's only a hundred days to the opening of spring training. Time to get excited !!!!!
