Future 2B

Who do we have in our system right now that could take the reigns at 2B IF Luis Castillo is traded(which I never thought until now but it is probably likely...I dont think Niner will be back either but that is another story). Assuming we trade Castillo and do not get a MLB ready 2B in return, who would get the job?

Josh Wilson?

Robert Andino?

Chris Aguila?

Someone else?

He is not, once Lo Duca and Pierre are gone, the highest paid player in our organization. He is not safe.

 

If you trade him, then there will be another highest paid player, then if that player is traded, and then there is a new highest paid player...yadda yadda yadda.

 

Someone always has to be the highest paid player on a team, no matter if that salary is 20 million or 2 million.

 

Use some brains, sheesh.

My thoughts exactly, to find a 2B like Castillo is pretty hard; Castillo, unlike most 2B players, can balance both Offence AND Defence. Most 2B are just offence players that can somwhat handle 2B

Castillo could have gotten a whole lot more money to play out of South Florida, but he took less to stay. Trading him would make him making less money and not playing for the team he took less money to play for. That's just good old fashioned back stabbing if we trade him and I will personally tackle Beinfest, Loria, or Samson if I ever see them.

He is gone, so get your plane ticket ready. If not now, I think he will by the July trade deadline...

Lowell took less money too and see how that ended up. Delgado got a personal promise from the f... owner of this team that he wasn't being shopped around. Guess where he is now. Do you think they care about hurting Castillo's feelings at this point? Once you permanently destroy, for the second time, the fan base of a team you could care less for the feelings of a player.

permanently destroy...quite harsh

 

This firesale is not as bad as 1997 because a lot of the trades back then were for pure nobodies. At least Beinfest is getting top notch prospects back in this dismantlement.

 

 

errr. wrong! Dombrowski didn't trade for "pure nobodies". We got AJ. Burnett, Derrek Lee, Preston Wilson, Braden Looper, Mike Lowell, Brad Penny, plus a lot of other players that were later employed to gather the nucleus that they are now selling in pieces. You cannot call these people "pure nobodies".

 

Downbrowski algo got what was considered at that point top notch prospects. As always, the problem is that these prospects not always pan out. I would say that 99% of these prospects become absolutely nothing.

 

Check your Marlins history. http://www.baseball-reference.com/teams/FLA/1998_trans.shtml ://http://www.baseball-reference.com/t...98_trans.shtml

I didn't mean the prospects turned into nothing, I mean that at the time of the trades, there was no optimism at all. At least now we can see the light at the end of the tunnel and there is some excitement to see these kids play.

 

No one was excited about 1998

 

People are minimally excited about 2006
