Possible Moves

Recommended Posts

From sources like Ken Rosenthal and MLB.com, here are some possible transactions the Marlins may make.

1. Marlins Get: CF Rocco Baldelli

Devil Rays Get: SP Ricky Nolasco and SP Sergio Mitre

The Devil Rays have long been scouting these starters and now is their chance to get two much needed, developing starters.

The Marlins need a centerfielder with a friendly contract and Baldelli serves that role and much more. DO THE DEAL!

2. Marlins sign RP Dan Kolb to a 1 year contract worth $500,000.

Dan Kolb has reportedly (foxsports.com) shown strong interest in resurrecting his career in pitcher-friendly Dolphin Stadium and

would take a cheap contract to sign with the Marlins.

3. Marlins trade OF Joe Borchard to the Braves for OF Ryan Langerhans.

He fits the description of what the Marlins are about. Langerhans is a very good outfielder who will provide us with a backup to

Hermida.

Why would the Braves want Joe Borchard?

:lol

I don't mean to be mean, but honestly, this has zero chance of happening. I'm not even sure it would happen with a club other than TB (meaning that is actually sane) who would take into account Baldelli's injury history. Even then, teams aren't going to be lining up to get Mitre. Maybe you could sell him to someone he pitched well against before, but even that is debatable. Not to mention the problems we are giving ourselves by breaking up the rotation, but irrelevant, this trade will never happen.

What the hell???

We had a pretty miserable OF defence last year and Ryan showed some outstanding defence last year. It makes sence for that 7th inning swap when we replace starters with bench players. I am gonna mis Borchard, he just seemed to get some pretty big hits at the perfect time.

Hey! for the record Dan Kolb to the Florida Marlins isn't a bad idea at all. Dolphin Stadium has a solid history of resurrecting, or at least bringing out the best, in otherwise washed up bullpen pitchers. Look at Joe Borowski before the 2006 season. He had two respectable years with the Cubs where he was able to put together a solid ERA and could eat up some serious innings. Antonio Alfonseca had a solid five consecutive years with the Fish before he self destructed in Chicago. Dan Kold might very well put up some solid numbers for the ol' Fish.

I was looking through the still available Free Agents that play CF, and I came across two names that I don't think I've seen mentioned much. One of them is Steve Finley. Yeah, may be old, but at least he could fill the hole for this season, and it'd be nice to have a vet like him playing every day.

 

The other guy is Darin Erstad. He's got 445 starts in CF and has had several good years in his career...and he's "only" 32. He even won a gold glove at CF in 2002 (along with Gold Gloves in LF and at 1B).

 

What do you guys think about these two?

There's good news and then there's REALLY good news...

 

According to today's Miami Herald:

 

"Beinfest said the Marlins had formal meetings with two potential trade partners early Tuesday and expected to meet with a few more Tuesday evening, though he refused to identify the teams. However, it is unlikely the Tampa Bay Devil Rays, who once appeared to be the Marlins' most attractive trading partner, are among them. Although the Marlins asked about at least two Tampa outfielders at last month's general managers meetings in Naples, a high-ranking Devil Rays official said Tuesday evening his club has spoken to approximately 20 teams in the past two weeks, and the Marlins were not among those expressing interest."

A source familiar with the Florida Marlins' thinking said they might be interested in reacquiring closer Armando Benitez, who had a career season there in 2004, if the Giants will pay most of his $7.6 million salary. The Giants, still thin in late relief, are hoping for Benitez to rebound from knee trouble in 2007, but are said to be open to moving him.
