Should we make a trade for a center fielder?

I know De Aza did good for his little bit of action this season. But watching Abercrombie, Reed and Amezaga in center field is getting ridiculous. None of those guys has any upside at all, period. Looking around AAA ball, I see Admin Bigbie, Joey Gathright, Marlon Byrd and Jeff Salazar all ripping the baseball. I'm sure that none of those guys would be to hard to pry away from their current teams and the cost wouldn't be too high. All of those guys would be a huge upgrade over the garbage we trot out in center field.

Id give De Aza a chance to prove his critics wrong first.

 

No need to trade for a backup either as Cody should be hopping along back any time with that ugly mug of his. Borchard will never see the cover of GQ anytime soon either.

 

But it is offset nicely by the boyishly handsome Miggy, Scotty O and, Hanley, the man pretty Jeremy Hermida, and the ruggedly handsome Hammer.

The point of making a trade is because De Aza could break down again or stink it up. It's really easy to hurt a hamstring again as far as Ross goes. We also need some depth in the outfield because if Hermida goes down again (highly possible) I don't want to see Borchard starting again because he's a stiff.

Then I think you would be looking more for a corner outfielder. I don't think you should make a trade because a guy MIGHT get injured or stink.

The point is.....if you can handle center field, you can definately handle a corner spot. De Aza hasn't proven anything yet. I was looking through Baseball America's Prospect Handbook and his name was nowhere to be found in their Top 30. I don't have much confidence in him doing a good job for the Marlins this season.

If that's what you're basing it on, then the answer to the question is simply, no, I don't think we need to trade for a center fielder.

and Marlon Byrd, Admin Bigbie and the rest of those retreads are so much better?

 

if we're going to get a CF, I hope we get a legit prospect who we could call up in September, and have him ready for next season

So, you must like the players the Marlins trot out in center field? De Aza might be o.k., but none of the other players that have played there remotely look like anything close to an average major league centerfielder.

The other players become moot when De Aza comes back, because they'll only play once a week. I wouldn't have them start, but they're fine backups.
