"More trades to free up money is always in the equation," O'Brien added, meaning Pena and Kearns still could land elsewhere, with the St. Louis Cardinals still interested in Kearns for, perhaps, pitcher Jason Marquis. And the Reds probably could get pitching from Washington for Pena.

I would love the FO to do just that.

 

I highly doubt the FO cares about the product they put on the field for 2006.

The Reds just traded away Casey so these guys could play everyday, makes no sense to now trade one of them now that they've traded away their OF depth.

 

BTW, both are about to enter their arb periods so you can expect their salaries to double or more every year for the next three or so seasons. Pena will probably get a mil this season and Kearns $2 mil.

 

What the Marlins need is to find, either in Aguila, Willingham (if the catching experiment fails) or through a trade, are young OFers whose salary will escalate slowly as the team comes together over the next few years. That's why a guy like Gathright made so much sense on paper. He's someone you take a risk on, not Pena or Kearns.

The Phillies' Jason Michaels might be an option.

 

Entering the weekend, Phillies sources considered the likelihood of any trade remote. The main Phillie on the block remains Jason Michaels, who has been shopped several times for pitching and whose future as a Phillie remains a 50-50 proposition.

It's easy to plug corner outfield holes with just about any free-agent class. Heck, look at this one, one of the worst in history and you still have 2 above average corner outfielders in Giles and Sanders, and a plethora available via trade.

 

Get a centerfielder, and when we're ready to contend again, left-field (if Willy is catching) can be plugged.

Seriously, at this point why not just experiment with Aguila, Hermida, and whoever else in the OF?

 

 

I agree, 06' is going to be about getting the players we have now some playing time and see what they really got over the grind of a full season.

 

We need someone else in the outfield besides Aguila and Hermida as well as a second baseman. There is no one on our roster or in the minors I want to see fill those positions for a full season. It will more than likely be laughable any ways, but we still need to fill those spots.
